Why not put the Jet Vehicon in a bigger box and call it a VOYAGER?
Then everyone would complain that we're paying too much for such a "small voyager."
Moral: you can't please the fandom. Quit trying.
Add a light-up gizmo
Where have you been, kid? They dropped that gimmick.
too many figures not seeing deluxe release (i.e. Tailgate and other recolors).
Why do they need to release a deluxe character that only showed up in the cartoon in a flashback for 10 seconds? Besides, Tailgate's the only "recolor" from the show. And may I remind you that during PRiD there were only five
toy-only characters out of a toyline with 22 figures. They didn't need to fill it up with more toy-only "nobodies," because in Prime, the toyline's there to accommodate the show, not the other way around.
You can't please the fandom is a COP-OUT. Do a cursory look and you'll notice something amazing! It's called "repetition". There are lots of opinions out there, but isn't it amazing how even the ones that get repeated a few thousand times still don't matter? What you're doing is comparing 5 people's opinions against that of a few hundred - go ahead and ignore the 5 people, but don't tell me Hasbro should ignore a concentrated opinion of say, "please release Hardshell as a Voyager!!!" It's always sad to me when a business goes Nintendo - call yourself hardcore but remember that the non-customers are paramount (because they outnumber your loyal customers and equal infinite profit potential).
The light up feature was used in the Prime Voyagers, so I don't know what you're talking about. If it's a spring-loaded, transforming gun that also lights up, that doesn't count as "light up"?
Prime comes before the toys? You do realize Hasbro is a toy company, right? The toys are ALWAYS first. As much integrity as you think Prime has (and I think so, too), I don't know how it's so easy for you to assume that Hasbro didn't lay out certain directives in relation to how they were planning the toys.
I didn't mean Tailgate should be a deluxe, per se (as his character wasn't even relevant). I was just hoping for more deluxes. And for the record, if they have the Cliffjumper mold already, it's not a big thing to recolor and re-release him as Tailgate (as they did with the legion). So I'm not even sure why you're against a deluxe Tailgate...
