Bandai Tamashii Nations (trumps all)
But Mattel gets my Masters while Hasbro gets my Joes. Each have pluses and minuses but I tip my hat to Mattel for being way better about a subscription line, as barely passable as it may be, than Hasbro.
Mattel for me
In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago......a stable place sufficed.
What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.
I have to say Hasbro....Mattel has only supplied a few lines that I played with as a kid, and Hasbro the rest (or Hasbro now owns the old companies).
But Ljn, Hasbro, Playmates, Kenner (now owned by Hasbro), Mattel, Tonka (also owned by Hasbro) have always been good companies with good toys.
Bandai however....not so much.
And at the moment, Mattel only supplies me with 2 lines out of all I collect....MOTUC & Hot Wheels, and I only buy a few HW here and there....Hasbro 99% of the rest with Playmates the other 1% for the TMNT.
Recent.... Arrow, Tung Lashor & Bow
Wanted.... NA She-Ra, Double Mischief, Jitsu....
Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....
My heart belongs to both of them!
