Shockwave? Aerialbots? Constructicons? Insecticons? Stunticons? Springer? Galvatron? Ironhide? Ratchet? I love how more and more 3rd party toy companies are catering to the fans of the G1-era, such as myself, with remakes of the much beloved original Transformer characters and retaining the designs of old. They definitely put Hasbro/Takara to shame. Granted, I've yet to purchase any of these 3rd party toys, so I don't know their quality in terms of sturdiness and plastic quality; however, from a visual perspective these 3rd Party figures BLOW away anything done from the official line of Transformers. In fact, it seems that Masterpiece is the only area of toy line that Hasbro/Takara has actually created for the G1 fans worth mentioning. In my opinion, even those remakes (classics, generations, etc) have failed to capture the true essence of the original G1 line. I only can't wait to get the Uranus figures when I start buying Transformer toys again as I want those to be my first G1'esque figures. Anyways, I just wanted to show my appreciation for these 3rd party companies doing what Has/Tak is failing to do for us. Kudos to them. Any thoughts on 3rd party companies compared to Hasbro/Takara design of G1 Transformer remakes?
