    Humans. Particularly very pissed off humans who want to make it take as much time as possible for me to get at my Titanium Rodimus, so they twist the things til they're at the very end and you can't get a decent fingerhold to untwist 'em.

    Wait, are you implying that the twist ties aren't the handiwork of Satan?

    To be completely serious on the topic, I would have to say robots. But personally, my first impulse answer, is a fat dude named Ralph, getting paid less than half of minimum wage.

    Twist ties are no match for my nail clippers of freedom.

    And I can almost see why they want to ensure that a collectable is property secured, but they have the same set up on My little ponies and Barbie’s, why damn it? WHY?

    That's all good until they start adding their own feces to the packaging, then it get's disgusting.

    I'll say monkeys too. Mainly because I'd probably snap and beat a human who did that a living to an inch of their life, but I dunno if I could kill a monkey

    monkeys would explain the totally erratic and incomprehensible wrapping jobs of the twist ties, but robots would explain how ridiculously tightly-wound they are. i also think it's pretty obvious that they're the work of the devil. the only clear answer is robot monkeys, doing the bidding of satan.

    EDIT - also, optimus primal under influence of megatron and/or tarantulas

    Combination of B & A: Humans with an infernal twisty tie device (think something like an electric screwdriver)

    p:

    I tend to agree with this theory. The occasional backwards wrapping kind of puzzles me, but maybe sometimes the operator runs the machine in reverse.

    my first horrific experience was with the armada unicron...it was if hasbro in its infinite genius, had created a demon that was to be banished to the box for an etirnity! as if beezelbub him self had said...there shall be mo more out of box transformers of any kind! and then he gave the twist ties of damn-nation to evil robotic demon monkeys named ralpf and unleashed them into the toy factories. and said twist my pretties twist! go and create anger among the transformer community! bwahahaha!!!

    but in all reality...evil bastards
