Enjoyable prose

A friend just IMed me, suggesting I check this review because of the high level of discourse at some points compared to the average description of a Transformer design, and I agree. Parts of your writing here (notably the paragraph after the side view photo) remind me of "formal analysis" from art school, describing the visual motifs of a work and the effect created without making broader judgments about the work.

P.S. I think you pasted that "His torso ... open fingers." paragraph in there twice.

Bumblebee seems like a

Bumblebee seems like a pretty nice toy so far. However I just don't find myself liking the character very much. I always preferred Cliffjumper to Bumblebee, and since they announced a Cliffjumper remold of this toy, I'll have to wait until that one comes out!

Great review. Awesome

Great review. Awesome descriptive talents you got there. If a Pciture is worth 1000 words. Yur Words are worth 1000 pictures.

The Movie concept BB I believe is now closing in on the double digits region in terms of repaints and retools. So if ts not the most repainted and retooled mold out there, its certainly very close.

By the way Chopster there looks awesome with WFC Prime in Axe mode.

thanks a lot! I really

thanks a lot! I really wanted to produce something worthwhile for my first review and I'm glad you enjoyed the way in which it was written.

And Chopster does make an awesome substitute for Prime's axe! At least until some third party makes us a real one
