There are some figures I'd like to get to round out Thundertron's group of pirates, and then there's the Predacons who will have their own little shelf somewhere. Finally there's the Autobots and Decepticons. While I focus on characters from the G1 lines, I also get figures who just look cool and add something extra to them.
Everything's a work in progress and I have no idea when it'll end.
I agree with it being a Giant work in progress, but sometimes I wonder if we have too many cooks in the place to cook food over there.
I've read through these and I'd honestly just like Hasbro to just finish a line honestly. That would be great. I love all these lines, (QC keeps me from getting them all though) its just like there is little focus in any one area. Like a dartboard is honestly making a lot of decisions for what is released over the course of the year.
They have a lot of decent ideas, and they dangle them out there, but then oh look something shiny, let’s go with something new after only a teaser. G1, tons of characters a few seasons and Hasbro even admitted their biggest mistake was killing off the main cast. Ehhh, whatever. A decision was made and they ran with it. Here we are in TF prime’s third season and they hinted how it could be the end. After 3 seasons we have like what 12 autobots if that? I think we had that many after 3 episodes of G1. And they have done a good job with it, just seems to be….. not finished. Seems like less than a handful of seasons and we have to reset. I guess timing plays a big role here as it will end about the time the 4th movie gears up, and leads to who knows what.
Classics line – A few awesome characters (06), then a movie interruption (07), then well siphon a few more out under United line, then stop for another movie or two with a little crossing over in-between and we are still sitting here with tidbits in this area.
WFC = 5 characters, continued (sorta) into F.O.C. with another dozen or more pending how you classify some of the on the fence classics, Generations, United/WFC & FOC line.
Movieverse = lots of characters with a possible 3 more in the works. Still, some characters that will never see released. (cough, cough, constructicons, Non cyberverse Dreads, cough)
It’s kind of laughable that the Kreons barely a year old could honestly be the first ones to finish what they have started.
I do love transformers, it just seems all over the place is all I'm saying. MAXIMIZE PROFFITS
