    Fair point about the original trilogy, however I'm fine with stories taking place within the same universe, but using new characters. However, I was referring to things in general. Not sure what's going on over there but characters like Han, Leia and Chewie are shelfwarming over here while the new characters are being bought up by new fans all over the place.

    And that's what Transformers needs; new fans. As much as I hate to say it, the fandom's been getting smaller and smaller every few or so years. We need more fans, otherwise we're on a decade-long trip to cancellation.

    Sadly, Hasbro is trying to get money out of the existing fans without thinking ahead, and a balance must be achieved between the fanbase and the general public if we are to continue this franchise.

    Fun fact, despite a couple of severely obscure G1 characters like Roadbuster, which toys were the hardest to clear out of retailers and sat collecting dust for damn near half of Combiner Wars, if not more? Rattrap, Rhinox, Skybite. Hell, the Walmart at Crawfordsville, IN had 5 Tankors and 5 Skybites on the pegs THIS YEAR. I personally dread anybody at Hasbro who entertains the idea of making the entire Generations line dedicated to one of those shows.

    Hm...seems a bit different over here. Optimus and Bumblebee are usually the shelfwarmers as fans and kids already have them, whereas I've never seen a Sky Lynx or Motormaster past day one anywhere besides Myers, where they're usually overpriced.

    As you say though; they are largely where the money is and i do understand that.
    I also care more by and large for the post 86 characters, but i do appreciate the earlier cast and some of them: Shockwave for example are among my favorites too.
    I may come of somewhat strong on this subject sometimes but I don't hate the 84-85 cast. I just hate their sometimes tyranical dominance.


    That doesn't mean they didnt sell though. They just have to make better assesements about howemany units to produce of certain characters. And that works both ways: they could have made much more money of the Sky Lynx mold because there are still people looking for him left and right.

    Let me tell you about the Beast Wars.

    Ok...whining on a forum about toys is a really worthwhile use of our time. We all get that. Grouping people by their age and assuming that they all think in the same (supposedly wrong) way about something you care about, makes you look like a moron in my book.

    As an old geezer of a fan (I'm 38) all I want is that Has/Tak are consistent in honoring what came before and continue to offer products that strike the same note of sophisticated, beautiful, well engineered transforming robot toys.

    Personally, I want a mix of new and old.

    Where did I say everyone who grew up on G1 complains about things being different? Obviously, yes, that would be a ridiculous thing to imply. I have no desire to tar everybody with the same brush.

    All "not G1 enough" moaners are children of the '80s but not all children of the '80s are "not G1 enough" moaners.

    Even that is not true.


    I've seen plenty of Beast Wars fans hate on G1, as if Beast Wars ever would have existed without it.

    Agree that it's a good indicator of case assortment argument, but the fact that they were sitting on the shelf/peg for a year and a half dictates that they didn't sell, though. Remember Cheetor and Dinobot? Pegwarmers. Armada Hot Shot didn't, but he was also an end of the liner. I'm a firm believer that if case distribution not been incredishitty, the pegs would have been full of Waspinators and I never would have gotten Crosscut and the like

    Could someone pop this on YouTube please? YouTube isn't exactly the best platform for sharing video. I'm in Japan and can't watch it anyway and hate YouTube, too.

    Cheers.
