    I haven't heard it from anyone besides myself so I'm glad other people are thinking it

    There is not enough fire in the world to burn these as they deserve to be burned.

    Dear Hasbro thank you for not letting adult fans dictate your business structure and allowing kids of all ages to enjoy the characters, not just adults. Considering most adults don't play with their transformers but merely treat them as possible statues or a puzzle, it's good that Hasbro continues to focus it's attention on the demographic that actually uses these toys for what they're intended purpose is... to play with.

    These actually look pretty good. Especially Sideswipe, who is probably my favorite of the nuRID Autobots design-wise so-far.

    How come whenever something is a huge pile of steaming shit, the response is "No, no, that's a good thing. It's for kids!"

    Be it shitty food, shitty toys, shitty TV, or shitty video games...It's designed to be shitty to appeal to kids!

    Don't give shit to kids. They deserve better. When I was 4 years old my favorite thing in the world was a Lionell train set that went for $100 a car. Not shit.

    Retire the shit=kids defense forever.

    What is shitty to you is not necessarily shitty to a kid. My son has one of the titan figures and he loves it. He has other more expensive toys and yet he still enjoys playing with the titan figure as well.

    You have no idea that as a 4 year old you wouldn't love to have a titan figure. I'm sure you loved cheap Mc Donalds toys just like the rest of us.

    Kids will like literally anything. I played with dirt. It does not excuse these toys that were made by grown men who know better.

    I took section of an interview with Vice President of Hasbros global brand and marketing.
    It gives insight into how they approach what types of toys they make and why certain toys come out.



    Mr. Adam Biehl: For me, I’ve been working at Hasbro for 9 years now and the bulk of that has been in the boys business. I think it’s one of our best consumer insight stories that allowed us to take what we were learning literally from the hands of kids and take it to the market place. As you’ve probably heard, over the last…several years, we worked really close with our consumer insight team to do a lot of different research with boys, focused around what’s engaging them, how their play is changing and evolving, especially in the action figure arena. Within action figures and surrounding figure play, we always want to know how their preferences are changing to better understand what their needs are and identifying new opportunities to improve play and the way they want to play.

    I guess buy a few give them to kids and watch them play with them. The reality is Hasbro lets kids play with these toys before they ever see store shelves. I think they know a bit more about what kids really want and enjoy, then a bunch of adult toy collectors.
