This idea struck me after a trip to Target yesterday. For the first time I found Thundercracker and Rescue Ratchet, but I had to pass on both. I passed on 'Cracker because they were down to one G1 Starscream, half off, couldn't pass that. And Rescue Ratchet I want bad, but I passed it because the paint aps were horrible, especially on the door. Nicks and overspray, paint that didn't go to the edges of the door, red lines on areas that were flat white... messy, no thanks. So I walk out with Screamer and Air Raid cause I love that trippy 8-bit camo job. I picked this one out through four of these cause I kept seeing speckled and chipped paint aps that bugged me on the others, and even this one ended up having a green blot on his canopy. Top this off I get a left hip that's super tight, and a right that's... well, not. This lead me to this thought. If they offered a variant line of main line figures, probably store exclusive, that cost more, say $12-15, that were guaranteed to have the best paint aps and the best joints possible, no parts damaged or missing in the package, top notch quality checking, would you buy it instead? In my history of buying modern figures, I've gotten a Cybertron Bendy Prime with an unpainted faceplate, one Cybertron Downshift with one eye unpainted and another with two left fists, a movie Payload with his entire head and upper torso missing right out of the bubble and a replacement who's gimmick kept getting stuck and popped parts off him when used. And I lost track of how many figures with loose joints, my Universe Repugnus has a right elbow that'll probably drop just from the weight of the dust he'll build up. Personally, if I knew the toy was top grade, I'd be willing to pay the extra. And before you say no, think of this, online shopping. How much does it suck to finally break down and order a figure off an expensive eBay listing only to find sloppy paint aps or bad joints on the figure when you get it? Or an online shop that uses stock photos so you don't know what you're getting at all quality-wise? Think of how much this would have saved the Titanium line just for starters.
