What might have been...


So No Tornato

There's nothing wrong with voicing your opinion about products you find unsatisfactory. It's good business to please the consumers and remain competitive. I occasionally do art for Hasbro and I discovered things about them. I also have a friend that is a manager in one of the sculpt departments. Toy Biz developed sculpts on a larger scale than the finished product while Hasbro sculpts on the same scale as the finished product. Hasbro does this to develop better and more creative packaging design. However that doesn't explain the strange joints they are implimenting lately.

I loved Toy Biz Legends and I collect Hasbro Legends also. I don't like the new elbow articulation and lack of hand articulation. If Hasbro prefers to leave out articulation maybe they can do interchangable hands like SOTA Street Fighters. (I'd love for She-Hulk to have had fists. )

Fans have a voice and our voices (and dollars) count. Don't let anyone tell you to "just shut up and take it from Hasbro".

ML 14 15 did not rock in my opinion, they suffered massive flaws due to the carelessness of Toybiz. My Bro had gotten Falcon and his arm fell off, so we returned it to get Zemo, and his neck was cracked. This line was utter trash in the matter of quality pure and simple, as for characters, it was okay. That is something that we never have to worry about with Hasbro, but that means nothing of course. If Toybiz's name was on the package than we all LOVED the glass figures we purchased. Don't get me wrong, Toybiz did make some great figures, but they were very flawed. Hasbro has also released some crap, and yes there is no real paint wash, but at least the kid opening his present Christmas day won't have the legend fall apart in his hands. Lastly, Toybiz is no saint as so many here identify it, they made cheap figures [re-used sculpts, POOR quality, poor paint jobs] and sold them simply to make a KILLER profit [not to make us consumers happy] because we purchase all the figs in bulk or simply or faves. Money is what they stood for, they could really care less about us. Hasbro actually asked us who we wanted and all that stuff, let's appreciate what we've gotten instead of whining.

 

Oh yeah, Lebowski, you're whining about whining. Doesn't make sense to point fingers in that fashion.

 

 

WTF are you talking about? I haven't had a post in this thread in over 2 weeks so maybe you should use the quote function if you want to call someone out on something, tough guy?

Tough guy? Looks like I struck a nerve. :P

I had already written most of my post when I remembered your funny post, so I simply wrote it in. And you noticed it didn't you? Don't take it like a gun to you forehead, I'm just messing around.

Hasbro could be doing a great job with this line: they have great character selection, overall good sculpting, strong plastic; but then you have the terrible articulation, no paint, and lack of ability to find the figures(at least in Canada where series 2 is not available at retail). I can deal with the lack of paint, but the removal of articulation and the new terrible articulation really hurts the line.

Paint app is the least of my concern, they need to start paying attention to the elbow, knee, ankles, and hand joints and articulations. WE WANT THEM!! Hasbro is doing fine, I didn't like how Toybiz waas sooo behind on there waves. By the time a wave be out u go to a store and its 3 waves behind.
