Let us put Transformers aside first, and take a look at what Hasbro is offering to children these days. This is the upcoming main Spider-Man toy for the Into The Spider-Verse movie, http://news.toyark.com/wp-content/u...E-6-INCH-Figure-Assortment-Spider-Man-oop.jpg This is a basic Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Leonardo toy by Playmates Toys, https://playmatestoys.com/uploads/brand/ROTMNT_basic_LeoTheTrickster_pu1.jpg I think the differences in effort are self-explanatory; Playmates Toys produce toys like they always do, while Hasbro seem to deliberately go out of their way to neuter them. Where are the basic knee joints for the Spider-Man toy?! This lack of effort or deliberately neutering of their children toys is seen also in Star Wars, and more recently, Transformers too. It is both concerning and frustrating to see. When was last the last respectable main Transformers cartoon toy line? Transformers: Prime. Yes, I can agree to a certain extend that children probably do not care much about articulation and paint job, but this is definitely not a good reason to produce bad products.
