At this point, it would help if they stopped putting toy-based POP in a negative light and rationalizing the style guide/Filmation looks. We already know the latter is generally more popular. It's really a moot point. If toy-based POP figures are a real possibility in MOTUC, there should be no need for those sort of explanations. They're making this more complicated than it has to be. Once in awhile they could toss in figure that's faithful to the toy. Spread the love some.
As for my use of the word "true", I'm using that in the context of being a fan who generally prefers the toy line looks to the style guide.
