Looking back at G1, with all their nice die cast and rubber and stickers etc--Wonderful toys really. But some were rather restricted in movements because being bound my screws, springs and what not. But now days, look at almost all the various new lines from official to 3rd parties, and almost all the different sizes from Legend, Scout to Leader and they now all have ball joints allowing for movement from necks, shoulders, elbow, wrist, knee, hip, ankle etc etc. It kinda just makes me wonder what G1 would have been like had ball joints been used back then. Do ball joints cheapen the design of a figure? Is it a cheat? Or a really awesome idea that has revolutionized the toys we collect now days?
