I just kinda wonder what changed to allow such a difference in articulation between toys back in the 80's and toys now. People always say it's because of advances in technology, and sure I can buy that. but more than anything else, it looks to me the main difference, at least as far as articulation is concerned, comes from the kinds of joints used on the figures. It wasn't until G2 I believe that ball joints were introduced, and to me that just seems more like a common sense sort of addition to add a great range of movement than anything to do with technology. So how exactly has the modern wonders of the computer age made it so the toys we have now are so much better (from a technical stand point) than what we have now? I'm sure price factors into that as well, but I don't see how that changes how a lot of the improvements just kinda come from people thinking a little harder than anything else.
