>>7797204>The Classics line was doomed as early as 06 when the completely mediocre and underengineered Starscream became the breakout mold of the line
It was pretty good for the time though. About on par with most Cybertron toys. And you have to take into account that MP Starscream wasn't scratching that show accurate Starscream itch, what with the sea green colors, side skirts and weird feet. The closest you got to a G1 Starscream aside from Classics was Robot Masters. Anyway, they didn't make another G1-esque Starscream until RiD/TR, unless you count WfC.>while an excellent figure like Mirage just has people complaining it was too redesigned
Really? I only heard high praise for Mirage back in the day. Although I personally thought his articulation was overrated, due to the lack of thigh cuts. That said, he did get repainted at least twice.>Once the Bay movie brought in that wave of returning nostalgic fans who hadn't collected since they were kids in the 80s, thats when you got the truly entitled people coming in
As much as I'd love to hate on the Bay, I dunno... I mean, this entire argument/discussion is about the Geewunners but Geewun didn't get any real love till, I wanna say, the last 3 to 5 years? There were G1 homages yes, but up until fairly recently, the bots still had horrible nightmare faces inspired by the movies.
