Simplistic Engineering Vs Modern Figures.....

I'm going to sound like an idiot, but what does CHUG stand for?

Classics, Hunt (for decepticons), Universe 2.0, Generations....

I always thought the H stood for Henkei! Henkei! The Japanese version of the Generations line, makes more sense since HFTD was a movie tie-in line

....guess you're right. I never even considered Henkei! Never owned one of the Japanese releases.

That's always gonna be one of the great debates. Some people love simplicity while others want a Rubik's Cube. I think Hasbro plays into both courts well enough. I totally agree about gimmicks though. Most of the gimmicks have hampered a clean design or otherwise over-complicated the transformation process. Worse yet, if the gimmick breaks most times you're left with a useless clump of plastic. Personally, I subscribe to the KISS theory:

 

Keep It Simple Stupid!

Probably the only instance where KISS and Transformers can acceptably be put in the same topic

I like my G1 Headmasters, but I guess it's also a bad concept, as far as the toys go. If you break or lose the Headmaster component, that's it, your Transformer is now useless.

simple is better. i think the prid revealers do a good job of keeping things simple. then there's also the legion, commander class bots that are also simple. i hope they stay on this track of making transformations fun and simple as in the prid revealers line.

    • The final Wreck 'N Rule set that I'll be looking at ends up being my favorite. The colors on G2 Leadfoot pop, I especially like the metallic sparkle on the blue. Mastodominus is a good Fossilizer but I'm still not a fan of that style of figure. If you're looking to build your Wrecker ranks or are a fan of the G2 era, this set is worth the purchase.

    • i just got my Motormaster in and the other Motormaster legs are surprisingly stable and the combiner wars fit in there nice and snug they don't rattle around or anything. i don't feel like they would fall out or anything  . but then again i have different feet on the limbs lol . most of  you know as well as i do those combiner wars hands/feet parts are not very stable at all lol . no yellowing on him so far its good . tell you what what a transformation actually impresses me for the Motormaster . I can see Meany collectors doing this till the other bots come out .
    • MIP Monday heads to Japan for a look at the 2007 Transformers Movie Optimus Prime & Megatron B@arbrick exclusive set. Medicom's flashy 100% scale set presents two shiny leaders with the rather patriotic Optimus Prime in red, white, and blue flames and stripes accompanied by totally chromed out Megatron be@ring only his faction symbol.
