How you annoy me so...

I understand these are directed more towards the younger crowd, But when are they going to realize collectors are who really buy these now. :x

Repaints, Remakes, Crappy Artic, Crappy Sculpts, Crappy Everything.
The only thing they seem to be good at is Packaging Flare.

Sorry about the rant, But i just cant get over the Toy Biz Era~LoL.

You my friend either need to stop collecting figures or stop hating on Hasbro. These new Iron man figures are great that War Machine is near perfection.

Take it from someone who has to many Marvel Legends toybiz weren't perfet and hasbro has improved upon many characters such as daredevil and that sand giant Cyclops

The thing that annoys me most about the IM2 line is the scale. Why would they make this line at 3 3/4? So they can look like Iron Toddlers next to the toys from the first movie? bollocks

*hides from the mob*

Heh,
It's not all bad, But there's room for tons of improvement.

Side note:
Hasbro just acquired the "Sesame Street" licenses for 10 years. :lol:

They're packaging wastes alot of space too, especially on transformers compared to 25 years ago. You look at japanese packaging and you have just enough, i've gotten TF packages you could fit 3 more figures into the empty spaces.

For people who think Hasbro is better than Toybiz, any marvel stuff that went into the hands of Hasbro it turned into a disaster. Doesn't anyone find the new hip joints so annoying. To move the leg forward, you have to move it out and then turn it forward. Why can't just forward? It's the way the hip was designed and molded that they have to use that annoying hip joint. And what's with the scale? It works for Star Wars and GIJOE because they started out like that but not for Marvel. Look at the Incredible Hulk figures in small scale, X-men Origins Wolverine with the unnaturally looking elbow joints, and Wolverine and the X-men toy line with even more limited articulation. The first Ironman movie figures are 6 inch but have that annoying hip joints and now the next movie figures and possibly anything in the future will turn into small scale. The sculpts are so ugly because it's so small they can't get all the great details on the figures and articulation is so limited.

You can't blame hasbro for that hip joint design, ToyBiz ML had hip joints like that, Bullseye and all of his body doubles had hip joints very similar if not exactly like what you're talking about.

personally I think they should buy the rights to Revoltech's joint setup and use them or something i hate how the crotches look odd. DC's figures have nice leg joint setups. Heck i've seen some neca (Streetfighter) figures with really nice setups too.

Well Guys if you don't like Hasbro send them a message.

Stop buying their inferiour proudcts. If everybody who was dissapointed with Hasbro stopped buying their toys thean they would take a hit on profits.

So instead of just talking about how worthless Hasbro is, do something about it!

Stop buying!!!!
