The fandom demands cartoon accuracy & Hasbro, Takara & Toyhax/Reprolabels are doing cartoon accuracy. From coneheads, to goofy human faces to cell shading. The fandom demands proper scale. Now they're packing tiny Legends scale figures in deluxe boxes. And voyagers in leader boxes & totally ripping us off in the process. Just so the figures scale properly. (I personally prefer the old larger leader class & won't waste my money on the tiny Siege/Earthrise leaders) So if the fandom has so much power & influence over Hasbro & Takara why is it unable to get the last few G1 toys updated? Look how many times Hasbro produces the same characters. We just got Mirage, Ironhide & Wheeljack in Combiner Wars & we already have new ones. Look how much effort & materials went into producing all those Bumblebee figures since 2007. And yet they can't produce a full figure of Fangry or Squeezeplay? All they can give us are their heads? What bout Snapdragon, Slapdash, Venom, Barrage & Ransack? Why doesn't the fandom have any say in which characters are made? It seems to have influence over everything else. Why do we have to be 100% at the mercy of whoever at Hasbro decides which characters get made? How do they even choose which characters to make? Does anybody know? In my opinion we should have some way to let Hasbro know which characters we want & don't want. We should be able to let them know that they are making a character too much while others not at all. After Chop Shop, I've been waiting forever for them to finish the deluxe Insecticon team but now I'm losing hope, patience & interest. I don't want to continue collecting if I have no hope of ever completing my collection. Why should I waste money on the same characters over & over again while I can't even buy 1 of the character I really want? I am still absolutely shocked that they made a new Misfire. Do I really need to feel *shock* that they made a character? Why do I need to be shocked & feel disbelief that they actually made a certain character? You know what I mean? It shouldn't be a big deal. All of the original G1 cast should have at least 1 new figure by now.
