    I've always thought it might be something like this.

    I think he's had to put up with a lot of unfounded accusations when actually it could be something far simpler. A family member in the business or even, as a YouTuber with tons of subscribers, an advance copy from Hasbro themselves. He's saving them thousands on advertising revenue and reaching demographics they are keen to entice.

    Apart from that, he is objectively one of the best reviewers anyway - he ticks a lot of boxes.

    He is most definitely not getting advance copies from Hasbro because their team has said they don't really appreciate the early leaks.

    This is hardly early compared to usual. He’s released next week in the UK (where PvP lives)

    Nah he would have to disclose if hasbro sent him some, which he has in the past

    PVP has ordered Haslab figures and went to Hasbro events in the UK. He even showed his face in one video if I remember right.

    Yeah they brought in people like Thew and Sixo for stuff but I imagine that's because PVP is just devisive in the fandom.

    The only even he’s been to I believe is the ROTB premier, which is organised by paramount, not Hasbro.

    dude buys figures legit when he doesn’t get factory copies, I mean he just reviewed the selects pack despite it releasing 2 weeks ago in the country he’s in, very rare I have a figure before his review I was quite shocked it had taken him this long to get it out there

    I know he’s decisive but back I. The day everyone and their mums on YouTube was reviewing factory samples. There’s just less now. For me he’s a good reviewer because he’s generally positive and upbeat. There’s a ton of popular TF reviewers that just sound like they’d rather be doing anything else, I want to be hyped up for a figure I’m going to be dropping £90 on

    Even at that Parmount could probably tell Hasbro who he is and where he lives. So if Hasbro didn't like what he did he would've been shut down already.

    I love all his photos. He really shows off what a figure can do. And when he is negative it's valid criticism then he moves on.

    I personally like PVP’s reviews. I don’t watch them often, but I find him great if I wanna see one of the new figures and how it works without having to wait for someone like EmGo, That Toy Guy, or Perspective (the latter two I watch regularly) to review it after it comes out.

    My only problem with him is that he calls COMBAT ports MechTech ports and it drives me nuts every time I hear it lol

    Please keep the reviewer talk to a minimum. It never goes well.

    My question is why is Magmatron's release date so different on Pulse for both the US and UK?

    Takara's factory.

    Hasbro doesn't oversee that aspect.

    I mean, he is in the forum so he doesn't want to be divisive anymore he could just step forward and clarify how he gets the toys so early

    PvP is based, his photos and vid quality are great and does much better marketing job than actual marketing department.

    We know how, it doesn’t take a genius. I don’t know why people can’t grasp that if he was getting product from Hasbro he would have to declare it openly in the video.

    If he doesn’t say “I got these as a free gift from Hasbro hashtag free product hashtag Hasbro hashtag transformers”, he didn’t get the product from Hasbro.

    But also, he isn’t going to come out and say “yeah I’m knowingly and willingly purchasing stolen goods and having them shipped internationally” because you would have to be completely intellectually malnourished to admit to that in writing. We have multiple users on this very board who also regularly purchase stolen product, it’s not a big secret at this point. A large chunk of the feedback threads in the last couple year or two are started by people who purchased a stolen copy.

    Looks like the shopping date has been pushed to the 16th instead of the 10th in the UK
