the first one was pretty funny, i've never watched reviews but that totally seems like the sorta stuff you'd see. lol

gotta say that i dont get how the 3rd one made it up so high. i'm sure there were many others that were much better. i do like how the incorporated TF themes into the music and the way they got around having to show him transform but yeah..didnt seem 3rd place-ish. lol

as for the 2nd video, they thank the actors for Optimus Primal and Megatron...now i see why they sounded so close to the show. though wouldnt that break some sorta rule? lol

Funny how true it is too, sometimes searching for less popular TF bots that have been reviewed, you get such annoying videos, with looonngg intros, and blurred visual and crappy audio. :lol:
My favourite reviewer is Optibotimus though... and Vange1ous or whatever, hehe.

Gee thanks! Maybe I should have just stayed home? I say mine and his were equally funny, mine was just more for general audiences and his specifically for toy reviewer youtubers which made up the majority of the crowd.

Fantastic! All three videos were good. Nice job. The music on third film was really good. The cast on the second video are all very talented. The first video had me Rollin!

Your right man, as much as I didn't really care for the 3rd one, the music did show good work.

Liked the first one the best. I wish he would've included reviewers that make size comparisons with 3rd-party/unreleased/rare figures. He also should've included the never-ending clicking produced by the figure everytime it's handled. I fast forward most reviews mostly due to that noise.

I liked all three of them for different reasons:

The first one was for the niche Transformer fan: those who are so "into" the toys that we "read up" on them by watching video reviews to see if they are complex enough (or not) to hold our attention.

The second one is funny for those who are into fan animation: and we have a LOT of different fan animators contributing to this one! All the biggies are there, giving a sense of a viewer changing channels from one to the next. We even get a live action bit that spoofs the mayhem commercials. There's also quite a bit of top notch voice acting!

The third is fun for those who have ever watched old time, silent movies, such as Charlie Chan or Harold Lloyd. We have the "boy meets Transformer and is rescued" story, but told in a way that matches the style of silent movies, using the same sort of old time sight gags.

Basically, all three of them were great, and lots of fun. A round of applause to all!

Okay, I'm gonna put this in very carefully so I don't shoot and lose the missile. I LOST THE MISSLE!

All three are great, but the first and third ones strike me as being particularly good.

Yeah, I made mine for a broad audience including non-Transformers fans and the first place winner catered JUST to those toy reviewer people who made up most of the audience and that's how he just barely beat me out of first place.

The second was the best IMHO. The first was ok. Funny parts but reviews overall just seem lame to me, even good ones. Sorry guys, I don't care what Peaugh's reviewing next. The third, was.............different. Ill leave it at that.

The second had good animation, great voice acting, humor, actually had to do specifically with Transformers and Botcon. Should have won first.

If only there had been 500 other like-minded people such as yourself present at the film festival, I probably would have won. ;)
