I'd say that sums up things pretty well.
Given the choice between the two, I'd happily take things as they are now, with little corporate oversight. In fact, I think this line is a breath of fresh air when compared to other companies (Hasbro).
I am more of a mainstream guy and I could use more in this line, but it DOES come in drips and drabs. Overall I would say the good in this line far outweighs the bad. Far outweighs.
