    Trophy Points:
    I've noticed something about the Classics figures.... They're constructed like a "Tab A in Slot B" fashion for the Deluxes.

    What I mean is, take the 2-Pack Megatron and Prime. Their swivel points (like Mirage's waist) are a post with a cap, that slides into an open slot. Now fortunately the connection is tight enough to hold them all together, but with enough fiddling, I was able to dismember Megatron, Mirage, and Prime for the most part.

    Now granted, I see how it cuts costs so that they don't actually have to seal the assembly closed, but it also makes me wonder how many figures will fall apart because of this.

    Is this a new, permanent trend? If so, I'd imagine we'll also see broken figures more frequently as well. Those posts could snap.
