    It would take a fan less time than that to transform ROTF Leader Prime. There's something very wrong with them if they can't transform Grimlock in a few minutes.

    I can't be the only one who finds this video hilarious XD

    First off, robutt, yeah I choked on my drink a bit after that.

    The monotone voice, the way he presents it, it's all just funny to me. Still glad to at least have another look at the toy, seems to look better the more I see of it.

    They both look great. Can't wait for them to come out in the U.S.

    I think that while children will play with those toys, collectors will buy them to display.

    The company may be, but that is definitely not a New York accent. Not that it matters. It was a nice, concise review. Maybe a little too concise, but better than the other extreme. A lot of times, I get irritated at reviews that take 25+ minutes to say something that could have been expressed in under 5. Still curious what kind of accent calls it a "robutt" though.

    If Vangelus doesn't capitalise on the new term Robutt in a video review I'm going to get a little upset.

    More on topic though, that Grimlock looks pretty nice here. Odd, given how terrible it looked in some of the in-hand reviews.

    Yeah, I think the less harsh lighting really trimmed down the chrome gaudiness and he looks a lot better. Those white background photo reviews made that chrome look overwhelming. It's not so bad.
