So many Classics threads! Lol.
I too have lost interest in most g1 toys and prefer classics. I would have killed for these when I was young.
Yes it is. Yes it is.
Yep... sold the G1 stuff for CHUG a long time ago.
I just wish the line had some combiners.....
CHUG is everything I could want in a Transformer. Updated designs to the classics, perfect.
My brother is a G1 fan, and the only new figures he's ever purchased are all from the Classics line.
So, pretty much... yes, Classics is the ultimate collection for G1 fans.
Altho I think they drop the ball from time to time, Classics is so far the ultimate collection for me.
Have to jump on the pile also, loved g1 growing up, LOVE classics line now (except ironhide/ratchet). I'll probably always keep updating my classics shelf.
looks like the transformers toyline has truly transformed itself in making the ttransformation from g1 to classics/henkai/universe/generations
heres hoping we see some classics molds repaintedrereleased in some of the original diaclone style colorschemes as original characters
I don't JUST like G1 for the toys, but still CHUG is the only line I feel compelled to be a completionist with and it's the only line I continually keep up for display. Well, I'm not a completionist with the henkei figures as long as their is a hasbro version of whatever given character.
I too have lost interest in most of my G1 figures and have sought out replacements on my shelf from the classics/heinkei/universe/generations. Currently only Predaking, Sky Lynx, Fastlane, Cloudrakker, Pounce, Wingspan and Six-Shot still get to hang with their updated pals.
I'd say yes for the most part, but I still find some charm in the old, articulation-limited toys. They show just how far the franchise has come.
That, and child safety laws weren't as restrictive on designs. I mean, the bad guy turned into a small version of an actual gun. And then there's the Fortress Maximus, who didn't have to contend with today's drop tests to get sold in stores.
Same here. As much as I like my G1 collection, the Classics line is much better. Great updates to the characters and much better articulation. Still I will purchase the G1 reissues if I don't have it in my collection.
Why not collect both?
G1 is awesome in its own right, especially for its age.
Classics are awesome due to the vastly superior articulation but limited due to safety laws and what Has/Tak really thinks will sell in today's market. Also, no combiners thus far.
So I personally don't find Classics "The Ultimate", but I still like them.
Yep....I'm happy with CHUG, I wouldn't mind collecting the odd G1 piece here and there (like SDCC Blaster), but those will just remain as just that. CHUG is where it's at for me. No movie, no PCC, no puddingformers, no M.A.S.K....just good old CHUG.
for me as awesome ass Classics/Henkei/Universe/Generations is G1 will always be my favorite.
Yep, I'd say that every G1 fan can find something to like in Classics.
I collect both. I don't think I'm ever giving up on G1 originals, to me it's not just their design, because I'm not a fan of reissues...there's just something about the originals. That being said, I do love classics as well. To me, alone neither are the ultimate, but rather, together, in unison, they are.
I'm not in the geewunner camp, but I'm kinda surprised at the amount of people who appear to be dropping the G1 toys in favor of Classiverserations. Guess it's all personal preference - Some embrace to the point of ditching the originals, others complain that Bumblebee isn't a Volkswagen or Galvatron isn't a giant purple cybertronian butter churn.
