i was just mulling over new TF toys and hasbros habit of doing homages to G1. we always complain 'why havent they done this and that G1 character?'. i guess if you really want to own a new version of an old character theres always the last resort of customizing one. but i dont think its just abt that. in the end i think its really abt the the idea the we dont want these characters to be forgotten hasbro. it would be like them being killed off i guess.
