Post your reviews of Transformers toys in this topic. Please keep each topic dedicated to one specific toy (i.e. DOTM Deluxe Class Optimus Prime"). Videos can be posted in a topic as well as text reviews and images.
This is a very long video and i apologize for that. I basically did individual reviews of each robot in my normal style. Ending it with a review of the big guy himself. I included here as well as time stamps in the video description on youtube itself to help you guys out. Enjoy
*UPDATE* Due to rather high request for this, here is a separate video showing the different limb configurations and such. This originally was going to be included in the first video, however i cut it out because the video was already at an hour long. Here's a whole new video. Hope it helps guys

However, it convinced me that I actually do not care for these figures. Swindle has the PRiD Knockout hollowness and I-am-going-to-break-you feel about him, and you say that they all have that. I really do not want to risk it.
I'm going to focus on the Prime line after all (and maybe FoC Grimlock).
EDIT - Afterthought: have you considered doing an update with the limbs swapped?
Here's the one many of you have been waiting for, a review of the SDCC 2012 exclusive Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Bruticus Box Set. Seibertron.com member optibotimus gives us a comprehensive look at the set, including the individuals figures. It's a long one, but he was kind enough to list when the review of each figure begins if there's one you more interested in than the others. Check out his review embedded below.

It's okay, not a very solid combiner as many would hope for. I think the engineers were retarded for giving Vortex that lame-ass hand in combined mode...WTF! I think of all the Combaticons Onslaught does have the crappiest looking alt mode, looks like a incomplete atv quad. I hope the powers that be learn from all this and make major improvements for the next combiner...'nuff said!
Yeeeah I think I'll stick to my Fansproject bruticus complete with rotf bruticus maximus...much more true to the original and doesn't look like a mess of terribly proportioned parts, I've seen knock offs that look better than this.
*edit* All right to be fair the bot is good looking until you get to the arms and then it's just an awkward looking disaster, so if some third party came along with better arm limbs and I don't know...chunkier legs? I'd pick up this set, but left as is, I see no reason to get this in addition to the Coupe de Grace fansproject set.

Very nice! I like what I'm seeing. I wonder how long it will take for the screen accurate version to make it to shelves? I'd be waiting for that if it weren't for the fact that they might not have done first edition or the last few waves of DOTM. As it stands, I'm forced to get the shitty G2 version. Oh well, at least they have the awesome G2 symbols on them. I just wonder what the **** Hasbro were thinking by making the accurate one a convention exclusive and not the G2 version? Dumbest idea from them I've heard of from them in a long time.
