I had totally forgotten this till Doug added it in, but -- at the time, I assumed that theft prevention was actually the biggest reason for twist tie excess, and that the Hasbro reps were kinda dancing around the issue when they said that it was to prevent shifting during shipping (even though there's certainly at least ''some'' truth to that.) Now, granted, the official word is the official word, but... I'd be interested in further inquiries on the matter. Loss prevention ''has'' to be something that Hasbro takes into consideration with package design. -- [[User:Repowers|Repowers]] 16:33, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

:I figure that it's a combination of the two. The twist ties make it a bit harder to steal stuff, but they also (in conjunction with the little rubber bands) make it easier to put toys in more dynamic poses, to the point where Joe fans get pissed off because the figures get kind of warped by the packaging. TFs don't really have "dynamic" posing in-package, but I imagine that's part of the rationale. [[User:Hooper X|-hx]] 17:32, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

Loss prevention and twist tiesEdit

I had totally forgotten this till Doug added it in, but -- at the time, I assumed that theft prevention was actually the biggest reason for twist tie excess, and that the Hasbro reps were kinda dancing around the issue when they said that it was to prevent shifting during shipping (even though there's certainly at least some truth to that.) Now, granted, the official word is the official word, but... I'd be interested in further inquiries on the matter.
