I have been going on and on about stuff that either matters or doesn't to many people right now. I am glad to be back on a TF forum it is fun for me to rant or rave in this way. Now on to the next thread in my day. I just bought AOE Voyager class Grimlock and noticed that there were no tech specs on the box! Is Hasbro going away with the beloved strength, speed, and intelligence meters? I liked reading the bios and tech specs that gave personality to the figures where they may not have any in comics, cartoons, or movies? What do you think?

Actually Grimlock, I noted that in my review, and I don't have a clue what happened to the specs. I'd drop old Hasbro a line and ask if I were you.:)

The tech specs still exist in some form...on US packaging, at least (or they did up until Prime, haven't looked at the AoE stuff) The Stats are on the sides of the boxes/ blister packs and the bio is a dribble across the back with the lovely photoshopped images.

If they've disappeared from the new movie boxes, I should imagine its because its part of some further cost cutting measure (text free packages means no multi-lingual packaging is required), plus I suppose kids today aren't expected to give much of a crap beyond a given character's media appearances.

The AoE toys lack Tech Specs but the main Generations line still has them.
