Wow, what a bunch of bitchy little girls!
Here's a bit of insight for you guys. The little kids that wind up with these sets aren't likely to leave them as they are ANYWAYS, they're going to utilize the specialty pieces, add them to the rest of their sets and build some freakishly huge multi-limbed creation that, to their way of thinking, is the coolest creation ever.
The adult collectors are likely to assemble this into whichever mode the prefer the most and then use it as a display piece. They aren't likely to take them down every other day and play with them so they aren't going to give a rats-a**!
Now, those of you who are complaining...let's face it, these never would have been your first choice to begin with, you blokes are more likely to go for the standard figures and are just being overly critical of these for the simple fact that you can be.
I've tried making detailed, transformable figures out of Legos in the past and unless you are willing to dump a whole load of cash on a wide assortment of sets you aren't going to have a finished product that actually transforms AND looks good. This company is giving us everything we need to have an accurate looking TF as possible with all the right pieces and even if it doesn't transform, so long as it looks good in BOTH modes, I'm willing to put some actual time and effort into it. I'm sorry to hear that the majority of you aren't but I should have expected as much from young people today.
