What was cool about toys in the 80s is that they actually had some for the kids that were dumb and couldn't transform a transformer for shit, often breaking it and pissing off their parents who just dropped $20 on a toy. For these kids, they had Battle Beasts. Very simple paper/rock/scissors concept for them so that they knew how to play with the toys:
Wood beats water
Water beats fire
Fire beats wood
Rub the hologram and go to town!
