    On the contrary, there's virtually no difference at all. Let's face it - the reason this line has excited long term fans, and drawn in lapsed fans like myself, is because of the work of the Four...

    The only thing I'd add is that the problem here is that the anti-Matty faction of Mattel is an unknown and qualifying things with it would really help resolve issues. With the Hoverboard debacle,...
