Once I heard that the CB were making a comeback in the toy aisles a couple years back, I was excited. Now I didn't have to troll auction after auction on ebay. But now that they've been out a few years now, what's you're opinion on them?
Why are some getting color changes, like Champ, Secret and Proud Heart? Why tummy emblem changes, like Share's (who now looks alot like Friend's)? But more importantly, where are all theses new bears coming from?
Some are okay, like finally making at least one of the Panda's. Releasing the old 3 inch poseables as keychains filled in HUGE gaps of my collection very cheaply. I really like Surprise Bear, with it's jack-in-the-box tummy emblem. Laugh-a-lot is okay with her laughing star, but the name is too similar to Love-a-lot (who is one of several Bears missing). But Do-Your-Best Bear? Bilingual Amigo Bear? The deformed baby Bears (not Hugs/Tugs, but the younger versions of other Bears)? I can tolerate some stuff, because change is inevitable (the eye patch over Loyal Heart Dog's eye was kind of clever) but has some of the merchandise gotten out of hand?
