    Yeah. The TR boxsets were worse. But that hardly makes this better.

    the only other option would be more repaints in the mainline and then you would have everyone complaining like they did during combiner wars and that would ultimately mean less product on the shelves

    It’s 60 bucks compared to like...100? 200? I forget how much those thing sell for. Skywarp should of probably been a retail release along with the targetmasters. But the price isn’t that bad, compared to like only buying computron to get scrounge or only buying the Tr boxsets for fastclash and pounce

    The thing is...the combiner limbs were deluxes. I don’t think many people would be too mad about a couple repaints of 5ish dollar figures.

    they retailed for $100-$120, just like the combiner box sets

    people complained about the deluxes, people complained about motormaster and optimus sharing a mold, about silverbolt/cyclonus/scattorshot sharing a mold, about megatron/armada megatron, about the seekers.

    it doesnt matter what the size class is, the most ignorant and entitled among the fandom will always complain about repaints. and again, more repaints in the main line means less product, because then there wouldnt be a need for lines like generations selects, store exclusive figures or the 35th anniversary subline.

    hell people complain that caliburst is a repaint of blowpipe and that aimless is a remold of blowpipe. people complain that not all of the micromasters are unique molds as well

    Just expect a bunch of individual loose Targetmasters to pop up on eBay as people unload the figures they don't want.

    huh, I’ve never actually come across these people maybe it’s because up until recently I haven’t been fully apart of the transformers community
    What exactly is accomplished if all of the micromasters are unique molds Anyway? They are tiny and hard to tell the diffrence since they all transform similarly

    I bought some extra Target master thinking parts were swappable to do customs, and they have different size pegs on the shoulders, hips, and guns connections.

    oh im in agreement, i love creative remolds and repaints (looks at my profile pic and name :p  ) but some people just like to complain

    the blowpipe/aimless/caliburst mold can be limb swapped as they all have the same torso, firedrive is the only humanoid one that is different

    I think Hasbro created the perfect tool to "unload" repaints in Generations Select. If they released all the seeker, lambo and datsun repaints in that line only the people who absolutely have to buy everything at retail would complain.
    My previous response still stands. But I guess it's kinder on the environment to pack them all together if nothing else.

    Not a matter of the characters themselves, more that to me something called LEGEND Class brings to mind a mental image of a big impressive figure, to my mind anyway, not tiny little figures.

    You forgot about Titan masters, but yeah, they aren't the smallest so...my point still stands

    What is the difference going to be between the normal Voyager prime and the 35 anniversary edition going to be (other than the cel-shading). Like any different paint aps or weapons

    You answered the question yourself: the figure itself is going to have all-new paint apps so it looks like it's cell shaded. No new accessories.

    I’m worried I’ll have to wear a straight jacket when the 35th anniversary “Cel shaded” repaints show up. I keep telling myself I don’t need that repaint.

    And yeah, I disliked Legends as a naming scheme. Very confusing.

    We have no idea if Cellshading is how it will be. That was just the cardboard cutout. I hope its super shiny.
