Thank You for illustrating that the bigger the bot the less effort they put into the transformation!

 

Oh, and Brave Max's box is not a table!!!

 

As for Menasaur, yeah, great looking robot, but a pointless transformation. Still I think the robot does look alright for a robot. No hands, but does he need them? I use him as brawler and thats about it. My favorite feature on him is that you can stash the minicon in the chest. He looks better than having the mini on the arm.

 

Kinda sucks for a favorite feature on a figure that size.

Lol. I got Cybertron Metroplex around early release time and still wonder If I'm transforming him right. All three of my cats (when I had them :tfsad :emo ) Always knocked him off the high table he was set on ( :lol ). I will soon unsuccessfully try to sell him on eBay.

.. nice video, but your topic strays way too much. If this is about menasor, get to menasor. Cut the first 4 minutes.. we don't really care about your opinions. (I'm saying this as an editor, not to be mean or anything.) The next 4 minutes.. relivant material. :thumb

 

BTW, Menasor is exactly why I don't like Japanese TFs so much. I have not seen a recent american produced TF that sucks soooo badly like this guy does. You might need to dig back into the era of G1's dying days to find something this shotty. But in the modern age, there's really no excuse for it..

 

I'm glad TFA has been pretty well engineered.

I'm in advertising, so I understand what your saying. However exploring the other figures and explaining the outline of the review does set a president and give a frame of refrence for when the feature figure is finaly touched upon.

i hate video reviews... mostly because the firewall on my computer network blocks them all so i really have no idea what you said so i'll just tell you my thoughts on menasor.

 

to me menasor is a zord much like those on power rangers. he is a battle suit for his minicon similar to the relationship between Armada Overload and Rollout. while they were more like headmasters the minicon here fits inside the chest of the bigger bot so they are independant of each other rather than "lose the minicon lose the head." As a minicon battle suit, a specific altmode isn't needed as much. also factor in that he comes from a planet populated by other transformers so "being in disguise" is needed even less.

 

i like it but only because of the minicon interaction... battle suit gimmick. One day my minicons will overthrow the clumsy bigbots!

True.. but most of us already know what he's talking about. Its kind of like (and I mean this in no offense to screamer) watching grandpa's vacation slides for the 20th time .. It's just boring material. We know all of this, get to the good stuff. I came for the menasor rag.. which only contributed to half the video.. which probably could of been used more wisely like say .. introduce the character.. THEN pull out the other guys you want to show off in comparison. I haven't seen many video reviews that go in reverse like this one.. I don't know how well it works.

 

:P and here I am analysing this thing like it's a film project.. I really gotta learn to shut up more.

Thank you all so much for the constructive advice. The idea/format is that I want to touch on literally the good stuff, some bad...and then one thing that is really really really bad. Kind of a play on "The Good The Bad and The Ugly". Will work on shortening the first 2 parts...and really work on the meat per say.

I'm enjoying them, and I normaly can't sit 2 seconds through a video review. I like the flow you have going, and rehashing older figures, well yeah, alot of us do have them, then again there are alot of people that don't so what can it hurt? There are countless threads that pop up in forums with people asking advice on whats a good figure to get, so recap. Plus, if you don't talk about them, then whats the point of collecting them? Just because a figures a couple years old doesn't mean shelf it and forget it. With that line of thought, every library, museum, archilogic site should be shut down tomorrow.

 

Keep Going Screamer, I'm liking these! Any chance you can touch on Energon Sludgeslinger?

    • When SS86 Perceptor was revealed I think it was a foregone conclusion that Magnificus would come sooner or later. The man in black features a head that is based on Perceptors original toy head, which was also used on the Diaclone release back in the day. The biggest part of this release was being able to experience Hasbro's new insert tray that's supposed to be eco-friendly. For fans of the Japanese exclusive, this is a must-have release.  
    • Along with Minerva's light bar and guns.  It's some sort of real figure going by the color of the translucent plastics. With the way Hasbro has been making people's wish lists lately, I don't doubt that this is a real figure. I made that mistake in doubting them when reading the leaks before but not anymore. Bring it on Hasbro. I just want cool toys regardless of my connection to the fiction or if I have the mold several times over.  The only thing I don't look forward to is buying yet another filler kit. I very rarely pick them up but this is one mold where I did for all versions so far. So this is yet another one to get. Then there's Crosscut as well. Not to mention Reboost if they get around to that one. I'd also want the other red Skids as Reboost is red Crosscut or vice versa. And I'd want AoE Rollbar too lol but I wouldn't mind if they didn't do this one so I have a reason to keep the T30 Skids mold around.
    • Sonic Bomber-Core drops some more possible leaked figure images with the look at the so-called Leaked Transformers Legacy Medix Deluxe Holiday Exclusive. The remake of the Skids / Crancakse mold with Burnout's head is a supposed Combiner Wars homage. Read the notes followed by the images.Transformers Deluxe Holiday Exclusive (Medix?)This appears to be a holiday exclusive repaint of Crankcase with Burnout's head, and bears striking resemblance to the Rescue Bots character Medix, but with a head homaging the Combiner Wars Medix. - Read the Full News Story
