Vintage or New? Which do you prefer?

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

I'd joking retort "how could there be more thought when they simply recycled old toys", but now that I think on it, the original TFs definitely seem more designed to be fun toys rather than how today they are designed to be accurate representations of on-screen characters. You just don't get the quirkier stuff like motorized movement, giant TFs, that certain play value the original Megatron and Shockwave had, Reflector, etc..


What's that kids? Your toys don't look like how they do on tv?

Then use your bloody imagination!

I get some people LIKE that they're "cartoon accurate" ... but it comes at a sacrifice of imagination, and some can be very hit and miss when it comes to the fun of transformation from either far too simplified to far too complicated.

Modern. The vintage ones lack play value for me as they haven't no pose-ability.
