In the last couple of days, I have been looking at some reviews and getting some of the generations toys and AoE hound. There are a couple of trends that are kinda weird that I am noticing: 1- Is Hasbro trying to do away with Deluxes? I doubt it, but the reason I ask is because they seem the most compromised. The new legends scaled figures feature some really nifty transformations, they are upscaled, they have good paint apps, and they have some heavy duty plastic to them. When was the last time you said that about a Deluxe? In addition, the same thing can be said for Voyagers. The Voyagers of late have been really nice as well. I mean, besides Hasbro's sloppy QC, the figures themselves are top notch. While a couple can use more paint. They are nailing those as well. So what's the deal with Deluxes? 2- So we all know about more simple transformations. From what I am seeing in the AoE line, more simple transformation means, no transformation or very little transformation steps in the legs. Granted I haven't looked at too many figures, but evasion prime's leg kinda unfold more then anything. AoE Hounds feet rotate and that is it. Other then that, the transformations (I think) are pretty damn good, at least for the Voyager figures. A lot better then I expected in this new age of Hasbro. TBH, I see Hasblow, but to me, besides all the QC BS (yeah, I know, dead horse, broken record) Hasbro has done a great job stepping up. Sure I can focus on all the crap they released, but the stuff that is targeted to me as a collector, I am happy with. I rather not commend on 1 steppers, as they are clearly not aimed at me. And as a collector, my son knows how to transform figures, so for me to comment on him won't be fair either. He could always play with my stuff anyway.
