smkspy's comment about the new TF:A being the generation 3 we all hoped for has me wondering. Until now I would have said the reissues, classics or alternators was generation 3. though, i have to ask what would define generation 3? generation 2 was repaints of old g1 toys mixed with some new molds and a butchered version of the show. to me, g3 was the reissues and interesting repaints, the show on dvd, the new versions of the movie, the paperbacks of the old comics and the new comics. maybe i'll call TF:A the generation 4 we never expected. your thoughts people?
