Hey all, First things first: I DON'T want this to turn in to a flame war that ends up with all of us threatening each others' pancakes because of what any one of us has to say about our respective opinions. Because, as good as pancakes with sauerkraut sounds... they're not. Now, down to business. For the longest time, I've been the guy who collects all of a particular mainline's new molds, along with some repaints. Now, however, I'm just collecting one character each from the movie itself, with the exception of both deluxe Bumblebees. The reason? I don't like the designs. I just don't like the aesthetic of the movie/toys (that ain't stoppin' me from seein' the bots on the big screen, though ). It's nothing against anyone in particular; I mean, they really are truly unique designs, and I applaud ANYONE who's got the guts to give that a shot. They're just not my cup o' tea. Why buy the toys at all, you ask? Quite frankly, their engineering is AMAZING! I figure that, the only way to applaud the engineering, and kinda' give a "meh" about the designs, is to just buy the bots who actually appear in the flick (not that that reasoning's gonna' be available to Hasbro's marketing department). No need to pick 'em ALL up this time around. The worst part about that... to me... as a LONG TIME fan... is that it doesn't bother me at all. Yes, in the past, I've actually had a guilty conscience about NOT buying toys that I didn't like... I'm sick like that But now... I don't know. I can take 'em or leave 'em. How 'bout you guys? Are any of ya' in the same boat, or are ya' all gonna' poison my pancakes when I'm not lookin'? Have fun, gang!!!
