Well most of us here grew up with transformers in the 80's and obviously loved them(I assume thats why most of us are here after all). Now its been more than 2 decades, and a ton has changed; engineering and technology and newer ways to make toys. Full articulation is a standard on almost all modern transformers nowatdays. Now of course there is the saying "nothing beats the originals". There is also irreplaceable nostalgia and good memories of opening our first transformers. But to you guys and gals who grew up with tfs back then and are older now, are the old g1 toys/reissues still doing it for you? Or are they simply not fun anymore in the midst of the modern transformers like classics/masterpiece/alternators? I respect the g1 toys for what they were and no doubt, they were fun as heck to play with when I was younger, but nowatdays, I rarely take them out of the reissues boxes and my classics, alternators/binaltech and masterpiece get more love. Now for me, I love playing with old ARAH gijoes, bandai 1/55 VF1 Valkrie toys from Macross and beast wars era figures and up sans beast machines and armada. I noticed that as I grew older starting when I was 11 or so, I started craving more articulation. So perhaps with me, and some of you, articulation and better sculpts were what we wanted. I mean the bandai 1/55 had high articulation for its time and even now it has very good articulation. The classics figures are just as articulated if not more articulated than beast wars and the last waves of g2 figures(you guys should have seen me the first time I realized laser rod prime was the first superposeable prime in a leader pricepoint, thats history right there fellas!). I guess the newer toys have given me everything I wanted out of the g1 toys but never got. So for me articulation is important. And I suppose thats why I don't play with my g1 reissues that much. For example comparing my reissue thundercracker to the classics seekers, the classics are just more fun to play with to me. Nonetheless, the reissue holds a special place in my heart, as it is g1 and a reissue of a toy I wanted a lot as a child. For the most part, g1 vintage and reissues is "brickville" but they are the originals. To me they are fun but the newer toys are more fun. Still each holds an important place. So what do you all think?Discuss!
