You know if they just make 1/4 of the amount of bumblebees, it will really prevent a lot of waste. Not even make more of the other figures, just make 1/4 less bumblebees, and there you go.

No more plastic twist-ties? Rejoice, for this truly is a glorious day! There shall be dancing in the streets; for too long have our people lived under the oppressive rule of the evil twist-tie! No longer shall we struggle for minutes on end trying to free our action figures from their cardboard prisons, too frightened of scratching the toy to use scissors!

this has nothing to do with the environment(ok maybe a little cause im sure they get a tax break for it) they're main reason for this is so that we dont realize that their stuff is getting smaller just by looking at it in the box. I hope this doesnt effect the MISB collectors, they already screwed us over by replacing the twist ties with rope. Still dont see why they need to tie them down in the boxes anyway, just weave the figure into the platic insert like so many other figure companies do. What i really hope is that they use the money they save on the packaging to make the figures better and make the pricing reasonable again. Getting tired of waiting for a sale or coupon to come around so i dont have to spend an absurd price then take the figure out only to have it break or have 10 stress marks pop up after transforming it twice. But on another note I have a better idea, stop making so many damn bumblebees & primes that'll help save the earth (and whats left of our sanity) right there. Just think of how many bees & primes are sitting in landfills right now cause stores couldnt sell them all. And most importantly just think of all the figures we missed cause bumbleebee & prime were clogging the shelves.

Motto: ""Excessive force is not necessary.""
Hasbro is such a caring company!

And this is just the tip of the iceberg.

In an upcoming announcement, Hasbro will explain how in keeping with their commitment to protect the planet, they have been using less plastic and almost no paint in their TF figures so as to lessen environmental impact when the toy breaks on the first transformation and ends up in the local trash dump.

These guys are regular tree huggers! :P
