Hello there. I'm wondering how many of you look at Transformers as just simply toys, figures to collect, or engineering marvels? I mean who would've thought "back in the day's" of turning an ordinary toy car, into a robot? Now, there are a lot of really simple Transformers that don't take much engineering at all like the small mini-bots, cassettes, and the like. Not talking about those guy's. I'm talking about the more complex figures, like Hound. Example, look at the triple-changers and Sixshot! Holly cow, how on Earth can ONE figure turn into three or six different thing's! How the hell do you design something like that? How do you design something that has six modes and not get itself mixed up? Look at all the hinges, bends, ratches, pieces, every tiny part. Then assembling the damn thing! Transformers are more than toys to me. There engineering marvels to be admired! Masterpieces are another prime example! WOW! Imagine what Masterpieces would be today, if G1 toy's back then were more like what the Masterpieces are now. Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn!
