Hey, has anyone got an "ugh" answer on your comments by Optibotimus? That really bums me cause you´re this guy´s fan, follower, etc. he asks for support and subs and stuff and then he tells you off in your innocent comment?
Or a "talk to the hand"
response? Not trying to start a war or anything but I just wanted to get this off of my chest
That´s the only thing I don´t like about Optibotimus
Optibotimus kind of reminds me of Kanye West. He's REALLY good at what he does, but he's just a total arrogant ass. Similarly, I love watching Optibotimus's reviews because he really shows off articulation, gives great comparisons, and nails the transformations (forwards and reversed) every time. As a person, however, he's a dick.
Also, to stay on topic about the toy, I really don't care for the backpack. I could live with the color (which is a pretty nice shade of blue in its own right). But that huge ass backpack just kills it for me. I'll stick to my FE Arcee. Sure she's a bit too tall, but I've come to accept that my Prime collection won't be perfectly in scale.
I do have to kinda laugh at the Kanye West comparison, but i do thank you for saying i'm good at what i do. But i'm sorry, you do NOT know me in person. So saying i'm an arrogant ass or a dick, as a matter of fact...as if you do know me in person, isn't something you should do. I do fully admit i have a level of arrogance. But the fact is, i get asked the same things time and time again. Most of the time, and i mean most of the time...i'm generally pretty nice with my replies. That being said, i'm one of the few "big" reviewers that takes a lot of time to interact with his "fans" and replies to their comments. Not to drag other people into this, but compare the number of times i reply to comments in my videos with the number of times Sean Long or Peaugh does. I do concede the fact that i have a short fuse with things. But i live by the rules that if you ask a stupid question, expect a stupid answer.
All that being said, if i've ever offended anyone, i apologize. And i do greatly appreciate your compliment about my work. I'm very happy you enjoy watching my stuff for the reasons you listed as those are the reasons why i pride myself on the stuff i do put out.
Hope that clears things up.
Actually, that does clear a lot of things up. I understand the frustration of being asked the same things over and over (I'm a teacher). Some people have the patience for it, others don't. Nothing wrong with that, and I apologize for misconstruing your intentions.
That being said, I never claimed to know you as a person. I know you regarding your craft (making TF Reviews). Sometimes you have a crabby attitude towards A LOT of your viewers, so I'm basing my opinion on how you handle your craft. By the same token, if some of my students' parents said I had a bad attitude regarding how I handle my students' questions, I wouldn't run off about how they don't know me in person. They DO know me by the craft, and if I carry myself in such a manner regarding my craft, I have to be expected to be judged as such.
All things consider, though, you are an excellent reviewer. Whenever I can't get my Transformers back into Alt mode, I can rest assured that your videos will help (which is more times than I care to admit! Lol). Though I understand why you respond the way you do to many of your viewers, I can't condone it. Still, keep up the kick ass reviews.
You did say that "as a person, i'm a dick", that would insinuate that you know me as a person. What you do say has a lot of validity to it. Except i would disagree entirely with you on how you see view my attitude towards "a lot" of my viewers. You being a teacher, i can understand and appreciate what you go through. My wife too is a teacher. She's gotten parents that tell her that she's a bad teacher because of how she "treats" their child. Without knowing exactly how that child really does behave in her class. You, me and her have that in common...that we deal with a lot of younger people (presuming you don't teach college or other higher learning). That being said, i know you know all too well that common sense isn't very common. I'm fairly certain that frustrates you but you're able to handle it easier cause you're in control of a classroom environment. Unfortunately, i deal with the same kids, but in the world of the internet. Where they're allowed to be stupid, for a lack of a better word, without any repercussions. You at least can get em to stop. Me, i have to be a little more tough i suppose. I'm not saying what i do is justified, but again, if you ask a stupid question, you get a stupid answer. I've literally been asked how i get my white backboard white. When it comes down to it, the times i'm rude in my comments are probably far fewer than the times i'm nice. But naturally, the mean replies i make, are going to stand out a lot more. Believe it or not, i've worked really hard on ignoring questions that typically ignore me. But then, i get told i'm being rude because i'm ignoring them. Someone just the other day asked me if Mattycollector is Mattel. I just left it alone. They probably didn't know, but i didn't want to come across as rude to them. They proceeded to go to Sean Long to ask him, citing that i was a jerk for ignoring him. So, as the old saying goes, "you're damned if you do and you're damned if ya don't"
Upon reading my first post, I did say "as a person, he's a dick". I guess you can take that literally and assume that I'm assuming that I know you personally. Of course I don't. This is actually my first interaction with you in my life, so I'm sure you think I came off a bit ignorant attacking you "personally". Actually, I should have said that you come off as a dick when I read your replies.
However, now that I've actually had some type of interaction with you, I don't think you're a dick at all. It's possible that you're just a very frank person and since this is the internet, it's very hard to pick up on subtle verbal nuances that would make you seem blunt as opposed to an asshole.
So yea, I suppose I apologize because I honestly figured you would barge in on my comments, call me an asshat, and stomp away pissed. You actually explained yourself in a very civil manner. That alone shows me that my impressions of you were way off.
Again, I'm a fan of your reviews and think you're probably one of the best reviewers on Youtube. Though sometimes your may come off a bit hostile and blunt, after your explanations, I can understand why.
