Is anyone here sick and tired of the strong G1 push Hasbro's been doing in recent years?

With the constant G1 exposure and love Hasbro's been doing in recent years,it's starting to get repetitive and stagnant for me. It's like how many more updates of the G1 core cast do we need at this point? What about the other TF eras that have yet to get updates? Including the anniversaries of theirs being ignored such as BW had it's 20th anniversary shoved aside. It's frustrating and I'm getting burnt out by all the G1 exposure.

I know some may make the argument that G1 sells the best and the others did either meh or badly but that's still not a reason to milk it this much. You can only give us so many G1 content before people get sick of it. If it keeps up,the brand will go the way of telltale games.

Anyway that's my rant on it. Does anyone else feel the same? Let me know.

I feel the same to a point, in that I feel its the majority of the 84/85 cast that have seen the most love over the years. There's still a fair few from later G1 that have been left to rot in the dark (like a lot of the power masters, Doubledealer deserves his own mold) and not forgetting Japanese G1. I only hope they make it up to the BW fans at the 25th anniversary.

Yes and no.

I do like that we're getting some lesser known characters, but the constant re-doing of core characters is getting a bit old.

The problem with updating figures from others lines, to me, is it can sometimes be pointless, because some of them were already fantastic.
