    I am infact slightly intoxicated as I type this, but not so much

    so that I cant type (though this line did require alot of

    backspacing). Im sure it has been said time and time again by

    atleast a few others (I dont visit the boards much), but I must

    say, "HOT-DIGITY-DAMN HULK HOGAN...I LOVE THE CLASSICS LINE!"

    There are many reasons to like this line, including the posability

    and the homage to the G1 looks, but what really has me hooked is

    the fact that I can transform them easily....even when drunk! Im

    not going to get into why a chose to transform them while drunk,

    but I feel that my being able to do so while intoxicated has to

    have some kind of IMPORTANT BEYOND THE WORDS OF A DRUNK MAN

    MEANING. WAIT! I know! My being able to transform these figures

    while intoxicated proves that any 4-6 year old Tim, Roberto,

    Antoine, Noel, Sue, Fred, Othello, Roselyn, Morgan, Enrique,

    Ravage, or Samson can do so. I love being able to simply twist

    the waste of figure, lower the legs, pull the arms out, and

    bam...done. Thats what I liked as a kid. I buy a a transformer

    that looks like a frieken truck, I a do a few simple things, and I

    be damned if I dont have Optimus Prime. Not like certain figures

    that require you to rotate the head underneath the crotch (most

    porn stars cant do that...so why should transformers?!), turn one

    arm at an acute angle while twisting one leg underneath, and then

    ending up with a robot that falls flat on his face while standing

    straight up (aka the RID line...or something Id probably do right

    now). While Im not sure if Im making a valid point, or slightly

    more intoxicated than I care to believe, one thing is for certain,

    these figures are flying off the shelves where I live. I have

    been watching three retail stores in my area (Target and two Wal-

    Marts) and while I have only seen a handful of Cybertron figures

    move off the shelves, the classics like has been sold out and

    restocked numerous times. They just started showing up where I

    live at the start of this month and already one Wal-Mart has

    restocked 3 times. I leave you now to shake your head at my

    pathetic existence. Please remember not to flame me, as alcohol

    is a flamable substance and my burning body may very well engulf

    innocent bystanders such as yourselves. For you young ones who

    did not know that, or to those of you who are living in more

    innocent times, now you know...and knowing is half the battle.

    Now that I think about it...what is the other half of the battle?

    Maybe someone can answer that in response if nothing else.

    The simple transformations are a big bonus as you stated. I personally dont find it to be alot of fun to take a few minutes transforming something and I can imagine what a little kid might not be as patient as I am. Having a toy thats easy to play around with when drunk is an added bonus.

    Not to shit-pick, but this might feel more at home in the Feedback forum.

    You are probably right. The mods can move if they like. But come on man, I was intoxicated! It took me quite awhile to write that (since I was constantly hitting backspace to fix errors....and laughing for no reason).

    Whoa...a fun review to read that may be, but it's too daunting a text block for me to attempt...

    I spaced it out for ya. I am actually really impressed that I managed to type all

    of that. Why I put it in such a text block can only be summarized by my being

    more intoxicated than I thought. Oh well. I was tempted to delete the review,

    but the fact that for some reason I used a line from a horrible Macho Man

    Randy Savage rap and managed to use kid names that spell out the word

    Transformers if you use the first letter of each name, made me not only want

    to keep the thread open, but also made me consider getting drunk for my

    tests, as it seems I actually did some pretty clever stuff.

    Great review. From one tipsy classics fan to another, I raise a glass.

    They're just great toys. I bought Bumblebee mainly because I always wanted a BB for my alts to play with. And d00d. Best toy I've bought in years. So I bought all the rest. Incredibly awesome toys. Even Meg's crazy transformation isn't that hard once you've done it twice. So mcuh fun to play with.

    Even my wife, a person who's always kinda sneered at my alts has fallen in love with the classics. I gave her my Starscream today (her favorite one). She was incredibly touched and has been blasting the cat with the Nullrays all day. I now need to buy another Screamer since this one is apparenty going to her desk at work.
