Have I mentioned recently that it's nice that the ATT archive never ever goes away?
packaging and all-new mold updates of vintage characters. Would that
be interesting for Transformers? Would fans be willing to pay more
money than a toy's size point usually gets, if the money went into
extra detailing and features and/or better packaging? (I asked for
clarification--'do you mean *totally* new updates, or things like
RobotMasters which have already been out for months or years, and so
by the time they come out in America the fans would already have had
the chance to buy them for an equal or lesser amount of money?"
Hasbro: "Assume for the moment we're discussing all-new designs.")
And we saw the first images of resin Classics Starscream and Megatron in June 2005.
Have to wonder just how confident they were, back at that time, in making this decision. Maybe they were really trying to draw a firm line between their core product and the recent animes?
