Did anyone say or suggest it was?

Takara may feel that 'putty moulding' (shaping by existing example and then scratching out imperfections) undermines their reputation as a quality toy manufacturer.

Doubtful—the 90/91 releases were a fairly even distribution of special teams, original Autobot cars, Dinobots, triple-changers, etc. Early moulds were brought out for the G2 line as well, so it's possible (even likely) that the Classic Heroes were a trial run for this.
