Also, those little planets that come with the new SW microscale stuff could work as small moons, or as toys for the children of Tzan's creation.

Yeah, nowadays they wouldn't dare make anything as awesome due to stupid kids "choking" on the parts...

Did you know Transformers don't use the old-fashioned ball joints they used to anymore? Everything's riveted on so you can't break it. And if you do somehow manage to detach a limb, you can't just snap it back on like Bonn-o-Tron.

Ok, then how does this Dark of the Moon Bumblebee sitting on my desk here have Ball Shoulder and Hip joints?

Huh. Weird.
None of the Transformers that I've bought within the last couple of years have any.

You've probably been buying some of the larger figures. Hasbro has been putting on ball joints, but they're just so enclosed you'd need a hacksaw to pop it off.
