this thread is solely about the companies producing transformers rather they be official or third party. I just watched Bobby skullface community at war 4 dummies, while watching this it brought up some thoughts. Drama and fighting over hastak siege uni and mp 44. A lot of these products are causing dissension amongst the ranks (collectors). I feel like companies are trolling us. What brought this about is when they discuss in the video how pressure in the community was rising and boiling over, but when zeta announced their version of uni pressure released. The whole time I’m noticing this I’m wondering what is zetas angle on this. After watching I realized zeta comes in and relieves tension on the uni situation. Almost like they knew what was gonna happen and they provided a way for us options which in turn helped calm some of the community down. Which is a good thing and not trolling imo. Well you have hasbro with uni and takara with mp 44. These companies have extensive research and development tools at their disposal. They know how certain actions will affect the community. With all the knowledge and information that’s so readily available it’s easy to profile then troll people. Just like the person working in your shop or office who thrives on drama, they literally can’t function wo drama ie stirring the pot, talking shit about everything and everyone. That’s how imo it seems some of these companies are operating, like I said this is my opinion. Marketing has profiled everyone and with that being said you can’t tell me that when they make a move they don’t have a damn good idea how it’s gonna affect the consumer. Drumming stuff up for drama at the expense of others is trolling in my opinion. The troll who knows what they are doing then when the drama engages they sit back and laugh. I think we get irritated with each other, and I don’t think it’s right when it’s the result of companies “sheep dogging us” into what result they know is gonna take place. They all have been visiting here and seeing what our preferences and tolerances are and they’ve been doing it awhile. Use your power to strengthen the community not put a wedge in it for money. Like I said I think some of these companies are and some are not. These comments are solely mine and hopefully it doesn’t get deleted for speaking up about a situation that is obviously dividing us. We should be treating each other with respect and how we would want to be treated, a couple days ago I found myself getting angry about something and lashing out on here and it’s just not worth it. I would rather be a positive force and helpful then harmful, so while I am not perfect I can try to do better. A very good friend of mine who I met on here told me after a negative situation happened on here “collecting is supposed to be fun”. What has been happening and where it’s heading is not fun.
