If I didn't know any better...

...I'd suspect folks at Hasbro were actually reading my opinion pieces. As it is, I suspect I am merely one of many who feel the terrible truncated 'bios' they've printed on their packaging over the last few years are utterly inadequate...

...Because Wave 2 of Combiner Wars toys feature something surprisingly close to the Tech Specs cards of Generation 1: proper bios, written from the point of view of IDW's Rung (for the Autobots) or Soundwave (for the Decepticons) which actually tell you something about each character, what they're capable of, and what their weapons do. It's basically exactly the sort of thing I wanted.

Now if only they'd printed it either on a separate card within the package, or on a section of the card/box that could be easily cut out and stored...

Oh and, Hasbro, please make sure you keep them intact for the UK release. Truncate and translate for mainland Europe if you must, but if artwork exists for full English language bios, that's what I'd like to see in the British shops.

  1. What? Bios have returned to TF packaging?

  2. Hiya Colbey! Yes, that seems to be the case. I really should have included a link in the main bit, but better late than never...
