    Even though I already have the figure and in most cases all figures you review I watch your reviews just for the pure win and humor of them LOL

    Thank you for not ending that "my Hot Rod is so naked."

    Sure, my brain went there anyway, but others might be more fortunate.

    Unless they just read this post. In which case it's your own damn fault and I'm not even slightly sorry.

    (also, nice video - if I didn't consider trailers to be mostly pointless wastes of display space, I'd gladly get this)

    It looks really nice. The review almost had me adding it to a cart. In the end, it's just not $80 nice for me. :(  The stealth mode and Powered Commander hitches are irrelevant to me.

    Like I said on the youtube page, darn you for making me want to buy expensive things.

    I don't have and don't plan on getting the Powered or DIA Commander trailers (Magnus is all I need) and I think the stealth mode is a nice, but ultimately pointless fanwank. Like I said before, I don't want an $80 toy that I can't see (given some suspended disbelief).

    Everything else about it looks great though. Classics/Henkei Prime is just begging for a trailer, both base mode and repair bay modes look good (even if it is just the same thing "standing"), and while I don't necessarily need the weapons for my figures, I'd gladly substitute what I've got out for these weapons.

    Is it worth $80 to me? Not quite. But I just might go for it anyway if I have the money to blow.

    Awesome video as always, Vangelus. Any plans for the Nemesis Command Center?

    Roller comes out with impressive force. If you hold the ramp up when ejecting, can Roller actually get some air? The part of me that played with hot wheels and ramps as a kid is dying to know.

    Awesome review as usual, dude. But as with all the other kits/trailers etc by FansProject, i shall pass for the sheer reason IMHO its a novelty item. And therefore, it should stay novel. :D  Pass also due to monetary constraints and that they are not on my most wanted list. :lol

    Good Gravy that review was fantastic.

    And I was sold before, but with this review there is no doubt in my mind. So many nice little feature and touches that FP has put in there. The thought that went behind this puts alot of official products to shame.

    Thanks for the review Vangelus.

    Best review yet! Seriously, you got the professional video reviewing down pat.

    The G3 trailer's not too shabby either.

    I so want the weapons. Too bad they aren't released alone. I don't think they warrent me spending $80 on a trailer just to get them though.

    Thanks for another great review! I'll look forward to seeing you review the Protector someday :) 

    I have to ask, what is the secret to "toothpick TLC"? The last time I had to sticker a TF (Star Convoy), I used Q-Tips to press them on, and even then, I somehow managed to scratch the finish on a few of them.

    In retrospect I ought to have mentioned that the G3 stickers also felt durable as all heck. Though with fragile ones, I just find it's all about being as light with the toothpick as possible. And if it's chromy stickers I try to just touch the side edges.

    I really really want this trailer. But it's just out of my price range and I really don't have any place to put it. :(

    I don't know what it is about this particular review video, but I keep having it play and then cut out... keep playing and then cut out (repeat). My broadband connection is fine and I just sampled some other review videos and they seem fine.


    EDIT: Of course, with perfect timing, the video clip finally works just after I posted this post. Great review!

    FANTASTIC review man. Well done on the editing and your voice work is top notch :thumb 

    I'm expecting my shipping notice for this and the superion kit tomorrow from BBTS. Can't freakin' wait.
