G1 had metal,paint,chrome,and was a nice price of about 10$(deluxe) Then they went to plastic,paint,and chrome. Beast Wars though, started using the plastic colored molds with paint aps with little chrome. Now lets skip to armada, NO chrome and very little paint aps. Skipping to classics, they were nice, but had No chrome, were very small, and had a few more dollars tacted on. ROTF has almost no paint aps on there figures,making a kick-ass figure bland, my point is plastic and materials isn't as handy as it used to, prices go up and up, making us pay more and more with lesser quality. Not all characters have this problem like universe Inferno and Cyclonus, the point is the dallor is begining to be worth less and less, so how much are you willing to spend on a deluxe?
