    I'm sitting here looking at the FOC Jazz and it dawned on me that his joints are gears instead of screws. I don't think the packaging is more eco-friendly, I think they're making the toys more eco-friendly. I counted 3 screws and 5 of those little bars for pivoting. I think this is what we are to expect from here on out. Thoughts?

    If we were evolving backward I'd be happy cause that would mean die cast!!! This, this is just weird. How could plastic be consitered more "Eco friendly" than steel??? Man made vs mineral???

    if anything, it's the opposite. plastic is made from oil. therefore making it non-wallet friendly as well

    There was a thread exactly like this yesterday that got merged to the feedback thread, haha.

    I don't really have an opinion about it. As long as the toy is solid.

    I don't know if less is more in this case. The gear thing is kinda cool, but won't it wear out if it's transformed and posed too much? Time will tell.

    Sounds like another way they are becoming more like knockoffs.

    haha any thing hasbro said about 'eco friendly' is just pr speak for 'it's cheaper to use bio-degrable materials right now' less metal screws is just another cost cutting measure.
