I'm sure there are a plethora of opinions on which repaints are "unnecessary" vs. "necessary" (recognizing, of course, we're talking about a toy line, so "necessary" is a strange word to use, but hopefully you get my point). For me, the issue was "unnecessary" pack-ins. Those Fossilzers are great for a lot of fans, and I don't mean to insult their opinions. I just don't share them. I deeply dislike the Fossilizers to the point where they put me off of getting toys (Impactor and Leadfoot) that I might otherwise have purchased (noting that I'm aware I could go halvsies with fans who want the opposite toys, and I hope fans able to do so find such willing partners, but I'm tired of such hassles these days. I'd ultimately rather save my money and go without the "better" toys in the sets).the wreckers line is overall so disappointing. leadfoot is great and was an instant buy, but i'm passing on the other 3 and waiting to see what comes tomorrow. they had a chance to make something really great here and floundered hard with unnecessary repaints
Hasbro's made the decisions they made. This time, they weren't to my liking, and they won't get the sales from me as a result. I doubt my actions will make Hasbro regret their decisions.
