    So I got Mudflap in the mail today and I couldn't help but notice his feet were backwards. His big toe is supposed to be on the outside of the foot. I'm posting this from my iPod touch so I can't link to a picture now, but I assure you, his feet are backwards. Now, a simple solution would be to switch his ball-jointed feet, right? Well you can do that except his feet are now lower than his wheels in car mode. -_- oh Hasbro. When will you ever make a decent figure?

    If anyone can help find a fix, please feel free to experiment with this finding.

    Mine are the same as the one in Peaugh's video.

    Don't be knocking Derp. He's infinite times better than Herp.

    Hmm. I just watched peaughs review and his are the same feet as mine. What I meant by "big toe" is the single digit toe. Not the toe with two toe digits combined. The single digit toe is the one that is supposed to be on the outside, judging from the first few pics we got of him from Activisions game website.

    Gotta love how people still call them Herp and Derp even though from what we've heard they are more like wannabe gangsters than country bumpkin/redneck/hillbillies/retards.

    If the feet stick out in alt-mode when you swap the feet, then maybe the feet aren't supposed to be swapped?

    No kidding. They are made to be the way they are now, except that way is the wrong way.

    Meh, the rest of him was sculped to look all buggered up anyway, so no big. Maybe he's supposed to have it that way to go the look?

    Where the hell did "Herp and Derp" even originate from anyway?

    Peaugh. It might have been earlier but I believe it started with the Deluxe Skids review.

    It's since become the most irritating thing ever.

    True story, I've never watched a video review of a Transformer toy.

    Am I the only one who just finds it completely unnecessary to need a second opinion on a toy purchase?

    I more or less stopped watching them myself.

    It wasn't so much about needing a second opinion as satisfying curiosity. Lets face it, you can pretty much tell from the first pictures whether you'll be buying it or not. The one occasion when it did make a difference was with movie scorponok. Finding out about the 'Japanese monster mode' was enough to justify the purchase.

    I tried to watch one once, but it was boring the guy spent like 2 minutes just talking about it. All I wanted to see was a video of it being transformed, with no commentary. So now I avoid the reviews.

    the part I never understand is the need to point out and describe every paint app. Newsflash guys, it's on camera, we can see it.

    Yeah, that's an awful lot like those schmucks that the Weather Channel send out in bad Blizzards and Hurricanes, isn't it?

    "It's like, yeah. We can tell. You aren't lying to us!":lol

    I have to say that I enjoy the video reviews from ilovemess, dyansis, and KalelPrime because of the humor and enthusiasm they put into their reviews. They don't just talk about the figure itself, but they give you little backstories as well. Makes video reviews totally worth it. I usually just skip the rest since they're pretty cut and dry.
