It's unfortunate that because this is an Optimus toy and there are people who think they owe it to themselves to buy it while all they are doing is contributing to the problem that Hasbro has in their mentality - if we make an Optimus, they'll buy it no matter what.
I said something like that about the voyager, and I meant it in some ways. But...maybe hearing it come from someone else makes me realise how 'snobby' it sounds. I don't think there is anything wrong with having toys that are fun...I'm an adult collector yes, but there is no fun in every one I own being masterpieces and alternities. as cool as they are, you can't have fun with itin the same way.
I forgive this for being simple since it has the gimmick. Yes, I prefer the days when we got good, big toys like Cybertron Prime (though not that complex in engineering in itself) and this does seem like a step down, as did the awful supreme cheetor, but it exists regardless. If I see it and want it, whatever the reason, maybe I shouldn't get so hung up on it?
Plus, like I say, I'll buy this for what I can make of it (customising). I apologise if my hobbies facilitate bad marketing ploys from Hasbro
And, why shouldn't people buy anything associated with a character they like?
(besides, I love Prime, but don't own every toy. If I don't like it I don't buy it. You'd be surprised how many actualy think like that.) I hate the voyager with a passion...but y'know, I'm prepared to get over it, I suppose :/
Toys are toys. We've been expected to buy worse...
