Soooooo today i have been thinking about the Good old days of Transformers toys. While playing with the TRU Arcee i felt disappointed with its weight and quality. I am happy with the robot design and love Arcee but it is light as hell and like all late 1990s-now Transformers it falls apart easily at the joints. I started fiddling with my original G1 Tracks and am just so much happier with the Oldskool toys. G1 toys were heavy, sturdy, and look better. They do not fall apart and look ore realistic. It saddens me that with all the progress in materials & technology in past 25 years that the toy quality dropped. The thing is that even the cheapie figures from the 80s like the cassettes are higher quality. They look and feel better. I have never broken a G1 toy but in past 3 years i have broken no less than 4 newer figures. G1 figures rarely fell apart in transformation. They were engineered while new stuff are cobbled together. The only exceptions are the takara stuff that are brought over like the masterpiece toys. I have only 2 Transformers ROTF figures. Those do not impress me . Is it just me or has the design and materials really fallen so much?
