    Yep. Hasbro once again goes the cheapy route on another "25th Anniversary" figure. How Aaron Archer and Greg Lombardi must be proud of their Hound. :sly2:

    You do realise that Henkei figures cost more than Universe ones? Does it occur to you that maybe the "cheapie route" is something forced on them by all the people buying these figures for $7?

    I'm not accepting ANY excuses for what we have been given for the 25th Anniversary figures AT ALL (let alone of all the other horrible, horrible, horrible, quality control issues plaguing the line since Animated started).

    None of the "Oh, Poor Hasbro." None of the "You do realize that Tarkara versions cost 1 bILLIONzzz dollars more." Not the "You realize that Wal-mart apparently is on the board of directors of Hasbro and they must charge a meager 7 Bucks for all Deluxe toys." Nrrrrrr ...

    None of it.

    This is supposed to be the

    *** 25th Anniversary Celebration of Transformers ****

    and Hasbro has treated it as nothing more than a Word Buzz, slapping the logo on anything that blows out of China, including Vector Turd Repaint 3, Cybertron Scattershot Repaint 4, Unpainted Multi-Color Leg Plastic Knock-Off Cyclonus, Fall Apart Galvatron, Sticky Paint Prowl, Left Over Allspark Blue Jigsaw Sticky Paint Ironhide, Lackluster Hound, Faceless Painted Cheetor, and so on and so on.

    And such a BIG 25th Anniversary it is. Just enough of a filler line to shove right out of the way for the 2009 Movie Line. Which, I am sure, will be full of wonderful, slop painted, defective uneven colored plastic, unpainted plastic piles of unimpressive robotic turds.

    After 25 years of collecting Transformers, I am absolutely disgusted with how Hasbro has turned wonderful, quality robot toys that we have all come to love into a cheap-butt, slam out as much crap as possible, who cares what it looks like .... THEY WILL BUY IT ANYWAY, cash cow.

    And now everyone can pile on me, defending Hasbro for giving us such *wonderful, quality, Transformers."

    Yeah, right.

    ^ Not even gonna comment ^

    Anyway, I like the deeper green, I like the silver rims, I even like the red kneecaps, but I just cannot bring myself to like this version of the figure. It's the dam yellow hood stripe. It looks so... out of place and stange. I like the simpler paint scheme of the universe one even if the green is brighter. I have the same opinion of ironhide. I love Ironhide's universe paint scheme and when I tried to bring myself to paint over the windows with black paint I couldn't do it. The light blue make Ironhide one of the brighter figs in my collection and I like that. Let prime and sidswipe be deep red, I like Ironhide bright and noticeable. Same with Hound.

    Translation: Screw your facts, reasons, economics, and screw Hasbro. I want exactly what I want, without exception.

    I think the problem is you were expecting more for the 25th Anniversary, when it was always going to be just a Word Buzz like every other Anniversary in the past.

    So, if you don't enjoy the hobby anymore, why subject yourself to such a torture?

    Wait one goddamned second. You're criticising a cheaper toy for not having something that a more expensive toy does. Defend that point of view with logic. Now.
