    Regarding show-accuracy. Or toy-accurate character models.

    Examples of Show-accuracy: A handful of Animated toys;

    Examples of Toy-accurate character models: The Seekers having "Masterpiece" bodies pre-AHM.

    I'd like everything to match up. Make of THAT what you will.

    And I will further clarify this by saying I want what's in the box to match what ON the box. I'm looking at YOU Bluestreak!

    I'm quite happy for the cartoon to have one or two extra vents and small details that the toy doesn't have, as long as they're small details, not really necessary, and the toy does still 95% resemble the show model.

    Bayformers, however, don't need to be show accurate. They need to be movie accurate. Right down to the individual nozzles and rivets and whatnot.

    Animated, I'm quite happy with the lack of small details, the style fits that lack of detail.

    They should be one-in-the-same really, with today's technology, there's really no excuse for them not to match up, CGI aside. But they did do a wonderful job with Leader Prime and as far as we can tell, Leader Starscream.

    I think some of it comes down to the general consumer being actually able to transform their toys from one form to the other.

    Sure, you could make toys completely show accurate and complex, particularily in regard to the movie figures, but then the difficulty would go to well beyond Hasbro's current rating system.

    Show-accurate, because I usually buy toys based on how attached I am to their fictional personality/actions/powers/watehvah.
