Alt.toys.transformersAugust 22nd 2001That’s very true… It also seems that the fine people at Takara likekibble, though. The Car Brothers are rife with it, afterall. It’s not toohard to create a vehicle minus kibble, as we’ve seen in the past. Addingextra joints to, say, Kup’s legs wouldn’t be difficult. Replacing themaltogether nicely poseable legs that serve the same purpose would also bepretty simple. Of course, this is fairly self-evident. It seems like Takaraintentionally wanted the Car Brothers to be contortionists, which wasprobably a decision made early on in development. To be totally honest, I’drather have Laser Rod quality toys than what we actually got. Easier for thekiddies to transform, more elegant in its design and just overall morepreferable in my opinion.Brian Kibbly,Most vehicular transformers pass off the extra bits of plastic as part ofthe design. Prowl, Bluestreak and Jazz have their doors hanging off theirsides, but few people complain about it. But that’s neither here nor there. Kinda-sorta but not quite what I suggested five years ago is the new Transformers “Classics” line. Found Rodimus in Raleigh yesterday. (They’ve not made it to where I live…) I’ve been told that Rodimus isn’t the best figure in the line but, well, I have to say that I think he’s awesome. I’ve always been partial to Rodimus Prime/Hot Rod and S3 in general but… this is the first TF-line since Armada that I want EVERY SINGLE POSSIBLE FIGURE FROM. I loved Armada, liked Energon and mostly like Cybertron. Call me a dork and a nostalgia-fan but I love this figure. I want more. Especially Bumblebee and Cliffjump. “That’s Cliffjumper.”Weeeeee!
