Yeah, if these oversized Legion toys existing helps Rhinox, Waspinator, Sandstorm, and all of the other awesome things that have and will come out around now exist, then I think I can live with it. After all, no one is going to force me to buy these.

I agree, which is why I might even buy a couple of these simplified figures. Most likely for my nephew, who I still think is a little young for the more complex ones, but one or two for my collection too. Predaking and Optimus actually look pretty cool to me, and I'm tempted to get Smokescreen just to display him in alt-mode.

That said, this discussion will most likely just end up a bitch fest. People aren't going to stop complaining about Hasbro's decisions, even when you present logical reasoning behind those decisions. There's a three word phrase that would work wonders here, but it's a phrase I can no-longer stand.

Tbh, I may buy a couple of these 'monstrosities' for my 4 yo. Will be nice to not have to TF stuff for him. He can tf G1 figures, but nothing else.

Why are you calling "rationality" "defending" and "toys aimed for younger children" "monstrocities?"

Not when you don't get Generations in your country because Hasbro decides only to give us Beast Hunters.

They wouldn't be so bad if they just had Knees and elbows. But a Deluxe sized legion figure at that cost ($30NZ+)... it's pretty bad.

Aren't the glorious Cyberverse meant to fill the simpler and affordable quota?

I'm willing to deal with it (by not buying them). My concern lies solely with the notion that others have suggested - that this may carry over in future lines.

Yeah, aimed squarely at kids is just about the only logical reason for them existing. Luckily for my wallet I won't be buying any.

Honestly? They look kinda good, all things considered, and if it weren't for all the great Generations reveals, I probably would've bought Twinstrike or one of the others. The sculpts and designs look very crisp.

So I welcome these versions of figures so that way I can save for the Generations line and the MP's. I'm so happy the kids are getting the short end of the stick this year. I know it's sad to say but, that means it's better for the collectors and kids will be happy with just about anything they get so... no harm no fowl as far as I see it.

What blue version of predaking are you talking about? I didn't see anything about a blue version on him.

It's a target exclusive for the predacon rising line.
