A year or so back (before the big server change, or both of them, I can't remember), I posted a thread asking "were we, fans, being spoiled?" At the time, we were just just wrapping with Energon, now, we have Titanium, Classics, a new run of reissues possible, and a FREAKIN LIVE ACTION MOVIE ALMOST DONE! Me? I think we are DAMNED spoiled. While criticisms and complaints are nothing new (this IS a fandom after all), as of late, it seems to have reached a crescendo I've not seen since....well, I wasn't here for Beast Machines so I'm sure that would be it. But is a lot of this warranted? Sure, a LOT don't like the movie's direction, but what about all the other products geared to the G1 fans? There are Titaniums, the much demaned return to diecast There are still Alternators out there, the high end G1 redux Cybertron is still out, featuring some of the funnest toys of the brand. Classics is coming, featuring cheaper G1 reduxes with a more variety in Alt modes, not to mention haveing: the first new Bumblebee toy since 1995 (first new mold since 1989) first TRex Grimlock since 1993 (first new mold since 1989) first classic style Mirage since 1984 (first new mold since 1997) first retro-style Jetfire since 1985 first new Astrotrain since 1984 First (and probably last) Megatron to feature a gun mode since 1984. Plus we have a Soundwave/blaster reissue coming, which likely means we'll see a few more before all is said and done. Despite the focus of the film, current indications are a LOT of G1 themed products are due. Aside from STar Wars, NO fandom has it this good: GI Joe's 3.75 fanbase is all but dead with only a handful of products coming this year or next. They currently have their "Beast Wars" in Sigma Six Masters of the Universe is left with nothing but statues and a few DVDs Lord of the Rings have burned out TMNT fans are pretty much limited to whatever the mainline releases are. And retail handling of comic lines have barely gone beyond 1 or 2 lines (not counting the collector oriented venues) So, Your thoughts?
