    Ok, I really need to vent some serious anger over this topic.

    So it's my Nephew's 5th birthday tomorrow, and like most boys his age, he's into Ben 10, Transformers and other such wonderful childhood stuff. So we go out and buy a couple of Transformer figures for him. Just before the misses wraps them up, I decide to rekindle my own childhood and have a quick gander at the figures.

    Now, bearing in mind, I was a huge Transformers fan as a child, and had quite literally hundreds of the bloody things, so I'd like to think I know my stuff.....

    To my dismay, the small bumblebee figure, which cost £5 looks like it's made out of paper mache. It looks so cheap and nasty that if I stare at it too long, it's gonna break! But thats not the worst bit........

    The second figure, much larger in size (and cost) is of the all powerful Optimus Prime......And it doesnt even fucking convert into the truck!!!!!!! i mean seriously....WTF!!!!!

    Every single transformer when I was a child........TRANSFORMED!!!! surely thats the fucking idea of the bloody things, clue's in the feckin name!!!!

    I feel cheated, and I'm an adult....Imagine how a kid feels, opening the toy for the first time, only to realise it's just a robot, that doesnt do anything apart from stand there! There are many distraught, heartache filled, cry yourself to sleep nights that are gonna occur all over the world because of this travesty!

    I for one think that there must be some kinda consumer rights thing about this......I might call Watchdog........

    i know what you mean man. i remember i have an Optimus Prime toy where Optimus Prime turned into the truck and you could clip the trailor onto the back of him. not only that you could use the trailor as the legs to transform into a bad ass Optimus Prime all the extras were in the trailor.
    aparently you have to spend 100+ pounds on a good toy these days

    :teeth: - means I'm joking dude.

    Having a transformers toy that doesn't transform is like having a toy car with no wheels. Take it back

    I know, but I'm more angray at the fact that these companies are producing this crap.

    And yeah Weevil, thats the bad boy, I had that too! And the Megatron, that turned into the bad boy silver hangun, that looked proper realistic. And it had attachments like a surpressor, and a tripod to rest it on! Thats what tranformers was all about man!

    to young



    but then again when i was a kid i remember dominos used to be the good guys and a deck of cards used to be the native americans. lets just say the good guys always won

    ---------- Post added at 22:05 ---------- Previous post was at 21:59 ----------

    seriously...id keep the dominoes numberd side down...when they died id flip them up so i would remember. the playing cards would numberd side up but i would have them in order like spades hearts and things....have them spread out like different tribes and shit. when they died i flipped them over.
