So this is a debate between my brother and I. We're both TF fans when we were kids. He had the G1s that he passed down to me. Now his four year old son is shifting from Thomas the Train to Transformers (at least my nephew is consistent with the "T" toys ). My nephew has gotten a few newer TFs that are on the "easy" scale. They're these spring loaded, push button... things. My brother & I have noticed how my nephew gets so frustrated with these push button TFs that are suppose to be simple. You transform them then they pop back open on their own after the sixth time transforming them. Then my nephew comes back to me and says, "Aunt Lilly, can you fix my broken TF?" Uuuuh... I'm learning to become a TF Repair Station. lol Now my brother and I are arguing whether or not older TFs like G1 & G2 are better quality. My brother says the G1s had a lot of metal so they held up better. He has a hard time transforming the new TFs and thinks they don't fit as smoothly as they use to back in the day. I'm starting to think he's right and I've purchased a few G1s for my nephew to try. He's still young though. Any thoughts from y'all about the quality between the old and new?
