Updated homage TF new molds minus nebulans, minus beast modes & minus shells? like or hate? How does everyone feel about Hasbro/Takara creating all these updated homage TF new molds without the G-1 gimmicks. like the headmasters,no targetmasters,no pretender shells no power master engines. Personally I'd rather get a exact updated homage instead of a radical updated homage. if the updated homage doesn't have the G-1 gimmicks then it's a radical updated homage. recent release examples: (1)ROTF 2010 Mindwipe not having a animal bat alt mode & missing the headmaster. (2) HFTD 2010 Highbrow missing his headmaster. (3) ROTF Bludgeon missing his pretender shell & inner robot gimmicks stuff/accessories (4) Generations Skullgrin missing his pretender shell & inner robot gimmicks/accessories/stuff. (5) Universe classics 2.0 TRU exclusive dreadwing missing his powermaster nebulan engine/humanoid figure accessory. (6) Energon scorponok,minus his headmaster nebulan partner/gimmicks. (7)Generations Deluxe Thunderwing. minus the pretender shell & inner smaller robot gimmicks/stuff/accessories. Personally i'm not a fan of Hasbro/Takara giving us either pre-forms or after-forms. where these character toys are suspose to represent the before years before they got their headmaster/powermaster/pretender shells gimmicks. or after forms,where these characters out grew their nebulan partners/pretender shells & got rid of them. I'd like to see hasbro do the updated homage new pretender toys as follows: instead of the whole front shell popping off. how about a few panels from the front shell open up to squeeze a basic sized robot inside the shell. ofacuse for this to work the pretender shell must be voyager sized & bigger. I don't understand why hasbro refuses to give us updated homage headmasters with heads that transform into humaniod nebulan partners. Is hasbro afraid todays kids are going to lose the headmaster & not then have a robot with no head?? I'm sorry,all these gimmicks (headmasters,targetmasters,powermasters,pretender shells,brainmasters,breastforce) the 1987 thru 1990 TF toys had made them extra special & more powerful than the average transformer fiction character. take all this stuff away then the characters are now puny & not special anymore.
