We as consumers recieve our toys assembled and painted. But other lines like Gundam get theirs primarily in kits. Are there advantages of one above the other? Would it have anything to offer the hobby? Would it be practical? Could buying our Transformers in kits make them cheaper saving on paint apps and assembly? Or could we be open to other advantages? There are disadvantages of course, people would not have the time to invest. Also I'd be concerned that the toy might not feel so robust. Or that self assembly might hurt the toys engineering. I've been thinking about this for a couple of days now after picking up some kits. Any other thoughts?
