    Rushed Review: Universe Sunstreaker in 30 seconds

    I'll apologize in advance for my voice in this one, I caught the flu over the weekend and it's been kicking my ass. But not enough to keep me from this!

    All must bow down before Sunstreaker. And thank you for continuing to show that it doesn't take ten minutes to review a toy.

    Oh nuts, someone broke Vangelus. ;) 

    Loved the last part, I know I wasn't expecting that!

    (What's this about Longarm Prime?)

    I believe in a light that will purge the darkness.

    I believe in decency and justice.

    I believe, in Longarm Prime.

    I believe Longarm Prime has an extra robot & vehicle mode that will be revealed in Vangelus' next review(hopefully)

    Good review. More references to robot toy fellatio than I necessarily needed, but good review.

    I have to agree with you (my apologies to the subtitles for validating any of Vangelus's opinions) that the new Classics do feel really bland next to the Animated toys. They aren't bad by any means - especially Sunstreaker - but they lack the strong sense of character that you see in something like Animated Starscream or Bumblebee.

    Hilarious as always, though I do have a little bit of constructive criticism.

    First, the problem of having to force Sunstreaker's legs to flip out is easily avoided if you pull the torso assembly up first. It takes a bit of fiddling to unclip the arms from the legs, but I find that it is overall easier to do it that way.

    Second, I'm kind of surprised you didn't mention his severely restricted shoulder articulation. Like the fact that his shoulders can't go more than 45 degrees out from his body. I just thought that was kinda a major problem with his poseability, but that's just me.

    I'm really, really, really, really, really not trying to be a jerk, or to sound condescending; I'm just trying to be helpful. Forgive me if that seems obvious, I just get paranoid that people will misinterpret my intent.

    Y'know Vang, I'm with you on the Universe toys. I'm nowhere near as excited as I should be for them as I would be for, say, an Animated Sunstreaker.

    I'm not sure its whether the Universe guys lack soul (I mean it IS Sunstreaker, couldn't be more so if it tried, a spot-on update of one of my favourite TFs ever) or its just that the Animated stuff is SO different from what we've ever seen before and, relatively, quite simple by comparison and, therefore, more fun to fiddle with.

    I'm guessing we all know what the next review will be all about! xD

    Honestly, I ADORE these reviews. The camera's commentary is so refreshing. :p 

    But really, I like that foreshadowing! You should do that from now on Vange. :3
