Well, I started with G1, and I love articulation as much as anybody. It's not the complexity at all. I don't care if something is easy as long as it's well proportioned and looks good, but most if not all of the one step changers from AOE look terrible in robot mode. You can have simplicity and a good lookin toy at the same time. The cyberjets, beast wars basics etc. If the AOE/RID one steps were more like that, it would be fine. I mean, AOE one step bumblebee, ugh...that's a robot? Also, quality means quality....you mentioned power master prime. He might be a brick, but he's a well made high quality brick....I like Generations Jetfire a lot, but, as far as quality goes, given all of the hollowness and the lack of heft, he's almost just a facade of a robot. Compare that to, hmmm, Energon Galvatron...big, great plastic quality, solid.
