    Like the title says, who's your favorite?

    My first choice would have to be the board's very own Peaugh, as he always keeps his reviews brief while managing to showcase the toys plenty. Crystal clear resolution on all of his reviews, and he'll transform the toy so that you not only see how the vehicle mode and robot mode looks, but also how tedious/simplistic the transformation is. Usually if I'm every undecided on whether or not I should by a figure, I tune in to Peaugh's YouTube channel.

    Second choice goes to Simon, AKA Silverbolt. Those who frequent YouTube will better recognize him by "dyansis" given that it's his username. He's a fellow from the UK who mostly did G1 reviews, and he'd spend a bulk of the video talking about the character rather than the actual toy itself. He was always very witty and would occasionally delve into his personal life, but Simon was always so energetic in his delivery that I never minded. He doesn't review toys anymore to my knowledge, but he was definitely one of the reviewers who got me into G1.

    i prefer TjOmega and emgo316 for the same reason, they are actually entertaining and they seem like nice people, sure the videos may be longer than peaugh's but they go over details he skims over sometimes, I did like Vangelus and watch him if he reviewed stuff more frequently

    Thew
    Emgo316
    and TJOmega

    Sometimes I'll watch a review by Baltmatrix and I've tried watching Tman978 but now I just watch his toy hunting videos.

    I view a lot of Emgo316 because the second verse is same as the first.

    First time poster here... but already have a bunch of Transformers being a 38 year old panamanian.

    My first transformer bought with my own adulthood money was Generations Trilling 30 "Jetfire". (I love it). My collection is growing although I plan to keep it small. Current transformers are: Movie Leader-Class "Sentinel Prime", Voyager Trilling 30 "Springer", Voyager ROTF "Mindwipe", Movie AOE Voyager "Drift", Transformers Beast Hunters Voyager "Shockwave" and United Takara Tomy Voyager "Lugnut". Got a couple of second hand Deluxe figures that I don't care about (Plan to use as test for future customs)

    Anyway, my favorite youtube reviewers are: "emgo316" (amazing his skits. I always get a couple of chuckles from his videos reviews) and "optibotimus" (high quality videos, presentation, voice, etc.)

    For yt-reviewers:

    OptimusprimeSG (concise), Peaugh (straight) , Emgo (quite funny), Optibotimus (nice lighting), BensCollectibles (clear), Death Reviews (always supremely hilarious), Felzbug (another funny guy) are my faves so far.

    Haha. Great review of a truly unique toy. Would be great if they used the same mold again some time.

    Peaugh is my favorite. I like his selection of figures he reviews and straight forward style. I hit up most other reviewers because not everyone reviews the same stuff. I do have to give Optibotimus credit for probably having the highest production value. I have been watching a bunch more Bobbyskullface lately too.

    Nice.

    Optibotimus: Only because he has the best backround and lighting.

    I don't watch a lot of those.
    Some Emgo, who I find fun and quite the nice fella.

    Most of the time, mostly these days, I go with my guts or with what some members here show me with delicious pics, for toys I didn't plan to get at first. They know who they are (I hope) :)
