    Hey all,

    RM here and I am not sure if yall know this or not,but I see the ties on
    the Nest Bee and Soundwave 2pack are different,instead of having plastic
    twist ties they now have some kind of thin papery string holding the figs.
    Could Hasbro really be going eco friendly atleast a little,has anyone else
    noticed this?,and have they done anymore Nest Figures like Recon Ironhide,
    or Bludgeon.I wanna know what this is about.So talk away yall.

    I believe it was in a Q and A awhile ago that Hasbro said they were looking into more environmentally friendly ways to package figures. Guess this is it.

    I'm all for it, mostly because it's now even easier to cut those bastards and get to my toy. >_>

    The walmart exclusive scout packs also have those bio degradable ties.

    beachcomber/deadlift and slapdash/trenchmouth

    Blugeon and Recon Ironhide use the older ties, expect the environmently responsible ties to be the standard within a few months to a year.

    Holy Shit! Paper ties are a bigger story than Seaspray.
