Seriously, what once was the bane of my toy collecting existence I am almost begging to have back. It was nice at first, we got those cardboard twist tie-esque things, those weren't so bad. They were more ecologically friendly and they were fairly easy to remove quickly. But now? Those elastic bands they're using instead are awful. You pretty much have to cut them off to get a figure out, which can be a real pain, and puts the toy at risk depending on what you have to cut with and where the band is located. The hell Hasbro?
