yes. yes they do.
Let's start a petition
Hopefully they don't give us an OS Prowl with Smokescreen's helmet.
I think WeiJiang could give us an OS Prowl as well.
It wouldn't have any lights
my only real problem with this guy is i had a little bit of sloppy paint. there is some red on the white in the forearms.
same on my copy
That's a bummer. I've had mine for awhile so it's an earlier run I guess, but that's one of the things I thought was nice about these- excellent paint.
Have you tried to get it off? If so, what did you use? I haven't tried, yet.
I haven't tried.
Is it me or does it seem like Optibotimus isn't doing constant MP/3P MP reviews like he used to 2 or 3 years ago. It seems like he has cut back friom doing so significantly.
Luckily it's not that big of a deal to me.
He only does fansbobby and fanstoys stuff, it one's like downbeat when he thinks there isn't an official mp coming out. Idk with him anymore. Seems like he tries to stay on Hasbro good side and have limited 3rd party reviews
of course he cut back. he's not making nearly as much money from youtube as he once used to. youtube has seriously hurt a lot of reviewers and their revenue.
which is why most people have Patreon accounts now, so they can recoup all youtube takes from them.
Plus he's got another job whatever it is, so that takes up a great deal of his time. he seems mostly all about them Hot Toys these days. Hot toys are very expensive. he's also invested in TF Statues now days. again they seem to kill his wallet a bit.
In the end though I can't pretend to know why he's not getting as many TFs to review, but if you watch some of his Vlogs he does explain why he had to make cutbacks on reviews.
Perhaps if @Optibotimus wants to, he can better explain.
Plus he reviews a ton-load more of non-TF stuff (TMNT, Marvel etc)....kinda like what BSF is now doing.
Yea guess there's only so many tfs they can review.
I didn't get extra hands either and I purchased from the first run.
Why would anyone waste their time reviewing anything non TF. What is this world coming to?
wider audience = more views, more subs, more add revenue.
Feel the same!
I kind of want him to go with my mpp10 but then mpp10 was supposed to be a stand alone piece. Lol. I used to have this guy available in my Rub deals but my supplier for it ended up selling out elsewhere. I didn't buy one at the time and am now kicking myself.
Do I need this? No
Do I want it? Yea... I think I do...
There seems to be a LOT of speculation in what you're saying. Let me try and clear some of it up. Yes, revenue is down on Youtube. It's caused some shifting in budget stuff but in general, it's not too bad. A lot of what it's hurt is just my every day life. Such as anniversary vacations with my wife (thankfully she's extremely understanding). I do my best to consistently provide content for people because if i reduce that dramatically, it will have an even worse result in just lower ad revenue....it will result in less people watching which ultimately will hurt more. As for 3rd party stuff. I never really did a lot of those because i am extremely picky about what stuff i spend a lot of money on. If i'm paying $200 for something, i want to make sure i like it. A lot of 3rd party stuff, i just don't like. Not that the figures are bad, i just might not like the look they're going for. If a company is producing a figure that is based off a comic book look, well i don't read the comics, so i'm not going to spend money on something like that. I'd rather put my money to other stuff i do like. So it's not really a reduction in revenue that has caused that. It's just a personal taste sort of thing. Also, i don't know how often you've watched my videos, but Hot Toys isn't what i mostly do. I still primarily focus on Transformers and have reviewed just about every figure that's come out (except for maybe smaller ones that i don't care too much about). The main legends, deluxe, voyagers and leaders i have reviewed them all if they're out. The statue thing isnt' something i've done in a couple years now. All i have in terms of TF statues are Optimus and Megatron and again, those were from a few years ago. Not really hurting things now. I did get a second job to help provide more revenue for my every day life kind of stuff (again, i'm sure my wife is happy about that). But there have been cuts. As with anyone that runs a business, when revenue is down, you make adjustments....that's all i did.
Some people assume too much.
A lot of people assume instead of just asking. Most that know me know if you come up and ask me something, i'll tell you. I don't hide really much about how things work.
