    :lol :lol :lol :lol :lol :lol :lol :lol :lol :lol :lol :lol  You’re funny dude. As has been mentioned, diecast is over rated, and especially 80s diecast was prone to breaking, rubber tires split over time and are also over rated, chrome accessories flake (just look at the transmetal from beast wars), decals are crap when put against paint apps (see titans return and power of the primes), and you’re honestly pretty ignorant of what it takes to create these figures if you think 4 points of articulation figures are “better constructed than most toys from the last two decades”. You my friend are the definition of a geewunner, the kind of fan that obviously can’t move past the original iteration of a franchise. Let me guess you thought the Super Nintendo was crap because they added the s to the acronym right?

    Yea I am

    And you should be very lucky that brand has moved on from unarticulated bricks into the poseable dynamic options we have today.

    This hobby may not be around today if it hadn't.

    I was thinking....I like how their pipes and huffer turned out and I'd be into more minibot/scout class figures and I would love to see some non G1 stuff. Energon omnicons and terrorcons would be cool if they decide to do another original outing.

    I'd also like to see them upsize iron factory's warpath just a bit. Somewhere between legend and deluxe would be pretty cool.

    This might not be in their wheelhouse but I want an oversized mft springer. Voyager or just a head shorter.

    I'm happy with regular IF Warpath and their Springer

    Oh I like their springer too for a legends collection but with all the crap 3p springers out there this one is SO good I just wish he were bigger for fun. Especially with the hardon everyone seems to have for needless oversized figures this one would be great for a chug collection.

    Hasbro Voyager Springer is so good though. I don't think I'll ever replace him in my classics display.
    I'm also happy with Hasbro deluxe Warpath.

    Two characters Hasbro actually did right :)

    Having recently acquired g1 Megatron and reissues of hot rod and Starscream, I feel confident saying they were not better constructed.

    I can't remember. I looked into getting him but he was too expensive or hard to find or you could only get him with their Megatron or something. I'm waiting for hot soldiers and using the mega scf as a placeholder.

    makes sense...it can be a bit of a pain finding gt prime for a decent price let alone single. i know after i saw him in a few threads here i had to have him. it took me around a month to finally get the set for around 40 new in box. but i have never been happier he is the reason i collect legends now.

    I have been waiting on a blitzwing for the longest. I have even passed on him 4 seperate times at a steal of a price. Just because I think he is a tad too small for me to enjoy him properly.

    My g2 gold chrome bumblebee says "hi", he still has his chrome and intact rubber tires, and he travelled across my country with me. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    You can say that again. It took a month or more for my last two orders to reach me. The tracking said "left customs" for almost TWO WEEKS. That's how long it used to take for them to get here after leaving China, no more.

    good for you...

    and hundreds of other members on this site can pull out all the instances of broken rubber tires on G1 up to RiD/CR figures and flaked chrome and chipped die cast from G1 through transmetals....

    all those figures say "hi" to your one bumblebee and remind you the one exception for you doesn't mean it's not a common thing for everyone else regardless of care.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I ordered mine on 9/25, since then its just bounced around china and still hasn't made it to international waters. Speedpak just straight up sucks and I've got to wonder if its having an effect on sales for the retailers forced to use it. I keep eyeing the DX9 Soundwave KO but at this rate I wouldn't get it till next year.

    I don't think anyone is forced to use it. I have sellers that still send epacket. Others have requested EMS and Epacket from sellers using Speedpak and they've happily switched. I think that Chinese sellers might just get a better discount via speedpak vs. regular EMS/epacket.
