    what bugs you on your plastic crack?

    one thing that drives me nuts are clear windows...i know everyone loves them, and i actually do to, when they are done right...alternators have clear windows and if you look through them you see car parts...thats great....things like RID xbrawn, where you can see his head in the passenger seat...that drives me nuts...its removes the whole robots in disguise aspect....i look at other toys that do this too and it drives me nuts...

    another thing is rubber tires...almost all of my RID have cracks in the tires now....if thats gonna happen, i would rather have plastic tires...(btw, anyone know how to prevent cracking, cuz if my alternators do that im gonna kill someone)

    and the last thing that really bugs me, is when they toys dont line up again like they are supposed to....maybe im doing it wrong, but classic rodimus just wont stay together like he's supposed to...he's just slightly not together, but its enough to bug me...and other toys do this too....

    anyway, thats my rant, what bugs you?

    This bugs the hell out of me. I hate when they "almost" transform. Very frustrating indeed.

    As for the rubber tires cracking... I need to look at some of my stuff as I've never really noticed this.... and if it happened to my precious Alts I would cry like a baby.

    Applying petroleum jelly should act as a preservative. At least that's what we use on the rubber parts of my jets. Of course then you have greasy toys so. . .take it for what its worth.

    When pictures on the back of toy packages show paint apps that aren't on the toy IN the package.


    I'm looking at you Classics Optimus *Grumble*

    I hate the peripheral gimmicks. I think the stuff like the Force Chip and having the minicons activate an EVEN MORE AMAZING POWER (right, sure) and the Powerlinx garbage was...well, that. Garbage. A bad idea. I hope they don't ever do it again toyline-wide.

    On your jets. Suuuure. :D 

    I hate cracks in the plastic showing up out of nowhere. I mean, there's the MPScream debacle, and I just replaced Alt Sideswipe yesterday 'cause his back was starting to disintegrate. Yertle from BONR thinks my touch is corrosive.

    I actually really dislike the plastic tires, in my opinion, rubber tires like the Gen-1 stuff would look amazing on the new Classics stuff, could you imagine MP Prime of the Alts with plastic tires?!

    I like putting stickers on Transformers..They need to bring that art back to these new figures, it's the fun of opening them.

    Keys and minicons were one thing, thank God we now have Kissplay, eh? Now they can really get powered up, no keys required..

    I'm an aircraft electrician. I take possession of my work thus they are technically my jets.

    I must be a satellite because apparently I am way over your head. I did not intend to question the ownership of your jets, rather I was trying to insinuate that you used petroleum jelly on something much more objectionable and therefore were also ending up with "greasy toys". And the smiley was to indicate that I was only kidding and was not being serious about the objectionable greasiness.

    I just don't like it when a Transformer falls apart removing it from the package. Titanium G.I Joe Megs was the worst in that regard.

    The only thing I realy dislike is translucent plastic.
    I mean it cracks if you just happen to breathe on it too hard.
    My armada Sonar is a sorry sight, as is energon Cruellock, the balljoint on E Towline dessintigrated just after a few days not to mention the energon star and weapnry for Strongarm (I don't even dare to touch them anymore)
