Any Marvel G1 (US and UK) fans feeling severely left out from toy collecting lately? Prime Wars had a pretty healthy mix of toy/comic colors and toon colors going on. Kup, Blurr, Scourge, SCROUNGE, and a few others all made for very comic faithful representations. As did most of the Headmasters. Lately the WFC shift into 'pure toon' has really been bumming me out. The cartoon was not the superior piece of G1 fiction. The Marvel G1 comic outclasses it in story, length, and oftentimes art. The comics, even the famously mediocre Jose Delbo, had a much more consistent visual quality than the Toei/AKOM mess the toon had going on. Plus you had several legitimately great artists on the book too. Only the movie and a small handful of toon episodes hold up visually today. The toon is also nothing but a loose adaptation of the comic anyhow. Very, very loose. Several aspects of Marvel characters have persisted into the present. Optimus Prime's heavy burden, Ratchet being the solid, skilled Autobot we all love to love, the Matrix, Shockwave's logic-driven power plays, Soundwave's commitment to 'the cause' over any one leader, Primus and Unicron, plus several other things are rooted in Marvel G1. So why can't we ever have a bone? Hasbro lost an easy $50 from me when they changed Earthrise Prime's eyes to blue. They have never released a slate gray and fuscia Soundwave. Not one. Black helmet Megatrons are phenomenally rare. There's never been a Generations, MP, or any Galvatron toy in comic-toy colors since 1986! UW Galvatronus doesn't really count all the way. Soundwave and Galvatron would need dedicated redecos. I think they'd sell though. Galvatron especially, Soundwave maybe not depending on what mold and the specifics of the deco. But most characters would only need an extra head with the toy.... An extra yellow eyes head on ER Prime, an extra black helmet head with any Megs, an extra...erm...blackfaced Starscream head with Starscream or any Seeker. A redheaded Ratchet would be stellar. Could have included one of those in the box with Walgreens Ratchet and I'd probably own one already. Why do Marvel fans get the shaft for cartoon crybabies? You people actually whined loud enough to get Hasbro to change the yellow-eyed bone they were finally throwing me to blue and now we have yet another blue eyed (on a blue face! It looks bad. It's why MP10s eyes were so dead) Optimus Prime coming out after Siege, Studio BB, Masterpiece. Shit. They gave Powermaster Optimus blue eyes! Has he ever had blue eyes in the full trailer-combined form? No. I'm 21. I'm not biased by nostalgia the way a lot of fans are. I've consumed G1 media freshly as a young adult and the fact is, it's Marvel all the way. Marvel G1 should be the direct basis for the movie series. Marvel G1 is usually the go-to characterisation for a lot of characters. But it's unique color choices can't even get an extra head? Heaven forbid a single Optimus Prime toy is faithful to the toy, and his first fictional appearance, even one time. /rant It wouldn't be hard to toss in some extra heads at all! Any other Marvel G1 fans feeling the blues?
