Well. Damn it. I'll have to get the Hellboy. I understand the articulated right hand, Kind of wish it had a solid fist option.

I remember that. If pinning or superglue don't work, MgGyvering a replacemente part might be the way to go. think.gif

I may get a KO just to get the hip joint from it.

I have a broken Figuart hip I need to figure out how to repair if it makes you feel better. I may or may not have cried when it happened. It broke a while back and I put it directly back in the box so I didn't have to look at it.

Apparently, Ep.323 is missing...

According to Saint Chrome, the direct download links are empty.

 Huh?

It should be fixed now. (It downloaded for me a little bit ago.)

Welcome!  Are you double scale or half scale?

Maybe they are snake scales. Or like one of those balance scales?

Welcome to the forum!

yeah I'm afraid to get any other transformers toys other then hasbro.i know their quality.

The guys at Open Your Toys Podcast talk a lot about third party. They have a Facebook group that would be a good place to ask a question if there was something you were looking at in particular.

I do think that if there was G.I. product on shelves, it would sell well, based on the success of product lines like Marauder Gun Runners and Vitruvian Hacks; however, I also think that Hasbro should commission a good media tie-in to drive the point home, be it a movie or animated series.

I suspect we won't see anything new until the next film ramps up.

My point is that Transformers compromise a relatively small part of the action figure community.  And I want to know why?

Well, I can only speak for myself and while I do concede that Transformers is one of the more innovative toy lines ever created, I don't consider them action figures, as I perceive them to be stuck somewhere in between that and model cars. And even though I do have a few Transformers toys in my shelves, I don't think I ever was part of their target demographic.

I agree with your analysis.  I think it’s spot on.

How about GI Joe, one of the pioneers of action figures.

Why does one of the originators of action figures not get collected as much by so-called action figure collectors?

Is it because it’s too Americana?

Probably more since there haven't been any figures on the shelf since the last film.

You are pretty much painting everything at that point.

I’m just wondering why Transformers does not get as much discussion on this forum compared to MOTUC, Star Wars, Thundercats, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, My Little Pony, etc.

¿My Little Pony?
¿Here?

I think there might be general rule against it and Elmo.

Transformers are action figures, yet those who identify themselves as “action figure” fans usually do not collect Transformers.  Why is that?

I think it’s because Transformers figures are too expensive.

Any other thoughts or insights?

Transformers are less than Star Wars Black figures depending on the scale. I'm an action figure collector and have a few Transformers cause they are cool. I do not understand your point.
