Motto: "It doesn't matter if the glass is half full or half empty, only that you work to make it full."
Weapon: Particle Beam Cannon
Wheeee, Legends class Wal-Mart exclusive Devastator!

Just a few quick notes:

1 ) Long Haul is amazingly movie accurate in robot mode
2 ) Overload makes me think of an incredibly long-armed D&D Dwarf
3 ) Scrapper has probably the best robot mode of the set, including articulation
4 ) Hightower has no reason to ever be out of alt mode or Devastator mode, his robot mode is totally blech.
5 ) Mixmaster was rather disappointing, especially compared to Long Haul, and the Devastator face is highly visible in robot mode.
6 ) Scavenger is also amazingly movie accurate in robot mode, I'm just not all that big on Scavenger
7 ) Rampage is decent, but looks moe like an RPM with arms than a robot in robot mode.

8 ) Overall, the articulation for the figures is below par even for Legends, with the possible exceptions of Scavenger and Scrapper, with Long Haul close behind.

9 ) The fact that all seven have good vehicle modes, and can combine as well as transform, makes those with good robot modes (especially Long Haul and Scrapper) even more amazing.

As i have passed the 400 subscribers on Youtube i thought it would be cool to have a contest with actual prizes:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EyGQiNh8aX0

The video also has a top 10 of best collectables of the last year.

The Great Big Video Review Thread

Motto: "If they can't see you, they can't hit you."
Weapon: Slingshot
EDIT:

All your video reviews are belong to here. Now and forever.

If you have something SUPER special or out of the ordinary, you may create a new thread. If you have to ask if your review is of a SUPER special toy, then the answer is, "No, it is not."

I will begin merging posts to here...now.

-Counterpunch


Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, please move it if it is!

Wanted to shamelessly promote my new youtube review! It's my first time, so please be gentle.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HFsC05CW7w[/youtube]

Take a look, tell me what you think?

If you don't bother with youtube, it's ok to just skip this one.

Thanks much!
