That's because it IS lazy. Hundreds of straight ridges is not a substitute for real detailing, it's just meant to fool people into thinking they put a lot of work into it. A lot of people here know people who did that same exact detailing in high school because they didn't have the skill to draw proper tubes, pistons, or geometric shapes. The people who did this in my art college never got work from the major comic book publishers, or even the small ones. If you accept ridges as details, then all the more power to you, I really do envy you. But A LOT of people know better or this wouldn't be a recurring subject on these boards. Remember, no one is complaining that MMC toys have too much detail, they are only complaining that the only detail they have is lazy and a cop out to real effort.
