"Also, these toys are not meant to be exact replicas of their onscreen counterparts, just a representation of them for kids to play with. If you want absoloute accuracy, you will have to wait for something from Gentle Giant, Master Collectors, or one of the other "collector focused" high end collectibles manufacturers."...Spectre
No one expects perfection, but there is a standard that has been set. If you look at a figure of a Biker Scout, and what he looked like on screen, it's pretty close. But if you looked at a Barc Trooper, and the reapinted Scout figure, there's lots of differences. Please don't use the "they're toys for kids" as an excuse for Hasbro's laziness.
The thing is, Hasbro is business. Kids will buy the figure either way, but many collectors will only buy it if it's right. Why not make product for the largest possible audience?
