Next article "The problem, we find, is that the toys are too complex. So from now, we will be moving away from 5 step figures into one step changers. We're going back to the roots of the Generation 1 Jumpstarters, which should make all the Generation 1 lovers happy"

Just kidding...

well most of G1 toys especially the first season were about 10 steps give or take a couple to change but they still looked like robots that turned into some type of vehicle, that's what they should retain in transformers! they don't need to be complex just fun

I can't believe that the poo that's on the shelves now is actually getting bought. Hopefully the Stunticons will be retooled into Mirage, Jazz and Sideswipe next year. If not Bombshell will be my only purchase from Hasbro in 2015.
