    In case there's anyone else out there who actually believed the "plastics are plastics" argument, and thought this bit was TL;DR, here's a very simple rebuttal.

    Ever seen these?

    There are different numbers. That, in and of itself, is intended to convey that not all plastics are the same, in regard to environmental impact and/or recyclability.

    (More info here, for those who care)

    Rational peeps understand this.
    There is no reasoning with deniers, as previous page has shown.

    Would be nice to see the TF packaging images, especially since its the only new brand to be mentioned in this press release, it wasnt mentioned before

    Environmental scientist and former science teacher here: after 30-someodd years, we can declare "plastic recycling" to be a failed concept.

    Plastic recycling a 'myth' as packaging explodes – DW – 11/02/2022

    Taking into account the emissions of manufacturing and shipping a plastic-based toyline worldwide, adding or subtracting a plastic window on the box is just, well, window-dressing. If you want to make an ethical difference, in all seriousness and not being sarcastic at all, put an end to the hobby and industry. Like wild fur coats or ivory trinkets, stop all consumption of such products and reject the companies that distribute them. That is how you prioritize the environment.

    The alternative is to prioritize short-term pleasurable pastimes over protecting the environment. Which is what everyone in this thread will actually do, myself included. It is nothing to be ashamed of. It is the most human thing in the world to do. #YesAllHumans.

    This is what I was alluding to a few comments ago. To make a significant dent in the "plastics problem" we would need to target far more than just plastic windows, and instead drastically rethink our consumption of plastics use in daily life. Everything from food packaging to electronic devices to ... I mean, take your pick. It would all have to be curtailed.

    This is literally my points page(s) ago, and yet some of those "NUH UH PLASTIC WINDOW BAD!!!" Still go with "well I keep buying because no one follow me!" Excuse :rolleyes: 

    And some of them have the audacity to call us selfish because we don't want our toys to get parts lost thanks to open window

    No we did not. Previous reports from Hasbro omitted the Transformers brand from the press releases and only mentioned 6 inch toys (so not leader class stuff or voyager class). If you have a previous press release specifying the Transformers brand, please show me

    Here is what we had before:

    Transformers Toys Return to Window Packaging?

    I wish that we got to see the new packaging.

    And I wish no more of that weirdly shaped boxes.
