    This week i have started my own Transformers review channel on YouTube under the name Bigg Hungry Joe. I am planning on posting a new video every day, and i am about a week ahead so far. My goal is to aim the videos for casual collectors, parents looking for a recommendation for Transformers for their child, and even children. My goal is, besides the usual review, to point out points of interest that pertain to children. For example that a transformer in question has a difficult transformation, choking hazards and stuff like that.

    Now, I've never done a lot of videos with the goal of them going up online, so my backdrop is rather crude, being paper taped to boxes on a wooden table, but i plan to update and replace as i go. I'm currently doing my recordings from my LG G4 phone on a tripod, although that may change at some point. In these videos, i am a little quiet and not confident sounding, but again, work in progress.

    So far I've posted videos for Titans Return figures this week and i will continue to do so, with a personal favorite on Fridays. Without further ado, here is the link to my channel:

    And my latest video:

    This Friday i decided to put up a video of my Masterpiece Convoy MP-04 figure and mostly talk about how i received it. It isn't really a review, because it's not like I'm going to come up with something a collector isn't going to know about the figure. I did some testing with a new microphone and i was using it backwards, so the audio is messy, and i was trying out a bew lighting source. Anyways, the video is below. Please subscribe!

    Tuesday's review is for Titans Return Mindwipe and Vorath. I enjoyed this figure, though there were a few minor tweaks they could have done to make it amazing. I still recommend it to collectors and children. Check out the video below, leave a comment, subscribe, you know, the usual.

    First video of my fourth week of posting videos. I do my review of Titans Return Blaster here. Solid figure, my only negative comment being the robot and boombox modes lack a little visual interest. Can't say enough good about it. Here's the link

    Today's update is a review for Titans Return Alpha Trion with Sovereign. I'm liking these triple changer Voyagers, though the cowling gimmick doesnt feel worth sacrificing much of the torso internals for the mechanical parts neccesary. Anyways, check out the link below!

    I don't have any more Titans Return figures to review right now, so i have started review some Combiner Wars figures. I am going through the Protectobots figures and then review Defensor at the end, starting today with Blades. I enjoy this mold, even though by the end of the Combiner Wars series is was easy to be tired of seeing it. Anyways, check out my video below!

    In continuing with the Combiner Wars reviews, today i have ny review for Deluxe Rook up. He is fairly solid, but his hip joints are loose on mine, and he felt a bit bland. Anyways, check out the video and leave a comment. Thanks!

    Another Friday, another of my favorite Transformers. Today i talk about my Arms Micron Megatron figure. I also end up giving up on the transformation near the end. Hey, the figure looks cool in robot mode, at least!

    Today i take a look at the Protectobot Streetwise from the Combiner Wars series. To me, the small differences they made to the mold really make it much more worthwhile. Check out my full review below:

    Here is my review of Combiner Wars Protectobot Voyager Hot Spot. A nice, detailed figure with some obvious issues. I don't feel any of the design issues really impact the figure too harshly and i give it a positive recommendation. Check it out on my video below:
