    For that I say - YAY! and JEEBUS H. CRIPES it took you guys long enough to realize that overabundance of twisties was a total waste.

    Now, STOP ABUSING THE AMOUNT OF THAT (MOST LIKELY) TOXIC GLUE YOU SPLATTER ALL OVER EVERYTHING ELSE, YOU MORONS!!

    I'll believe it when I see it.

    I still have nightmares about trying to free Magnus and Skywarp from the 2-pack.

    I'd been trying to forget about that. So many twst ties....

    I hope this is true. Their packaging runs tha gammit from just the two or three ties that are actually needed to keep the toy secured, to Toys with ties on every concievable protrudence. Sometimes the number of ties seems to be born more from malice, than from actual need.

    The Magnus/Skywarp 2-pack would like a word with this press release as soon as possible.

    Because there were about 8 bazillion twist ties in that thing, and the article makes it seem as if the reduction had already occurred.

    ...unfortunately it could also make the old 'swtich and return' trick easier too.

    This should be frontpaged. For real.

    I really hope this is true. The inconvenience is a problem, but the waste really does irritate me.

    Their reasoning behind it is bunk, but the result is fine by me!

    I found the classics Deluxes to be really easy to free from their plastic prisons.

    6" Titanium Rodimus on the other hand, that thing shredded my fingers something awful.

    Forgive me for being dense, but I don't see what's super funny about people complaining about twist-ties.

    Is there some irony I'm missing or something?
