Except the old birds were never standard ... they were an upcharge on most models.
So would the old birds become standard and the new birds be the upgrade, or just do away with the new altogether in favor of old?
I would love to see the old birds come back. I'm probably in the minority here but I'd even settle for old birds made of MOTS or just plain white plastic with abalone and MOP available at an upcharge.
I've said no, as the new models should have something new.
Save the original birds for the '85 reissue models that will surely eventually come out.
Exacrtly that! I hope it'll be a regular production model one day.
I like the way the bird decor has evolved.
My favorite birds are anything pre-hollow birds. Any of the materials used are fine. While I like the hollow birds and "dirt" birds(on select colors), I like the look of the old birds best.
Long live MOONS!
But the newest style, like on the CU24, are the best birds yet aside from etched.
I'd like to at least bring the old birds back as a standard option, even though I like both the old birds and the new birds.
