You're right. It doesn't matter... unless they want me to actually BUY them. Then it matters a little. Heh.
Those crane-bots just looked like they slapped the name on since they were about the same size... But with these, you can SEE there is a reference to the G1 characters. I just hate to see poorly executed homages, and where they pull from so many other influences besides Transformers. The face-chest is clearly ripping off other toy lines, which I hate to see. That dilutes the brand.
But again, just airing my own opinion. I respect that other people like them... and acknowledge that they're not intended to BE G1 cassette Rumble and Frenzy.
I just don't like them. (Insert Tard the Grumpy Cat image here.)
