Question Guests and members, what do you think of our Toy Reviews section?

The topic line really says it all. Suggestions, complaints, compliments are all welcome.

I like it, but I contribute to it so I'm probably baised. The scrolling menus work well (much better than the old format) and we've got a good mix of reviewers providing content.

Speaking entirely without bias also, its easily the best thing ever. The only extra thing I'd like is a link at the bottom of a review if there is an alternative review of the same toy. A bit pedantic perhaps, but I do also look at the excellent toy reviews at Transfans and I find I enjoy reading as many opinions about a toy as possible. e.g. I'd easily read several reviews of Battle Ravage as it gives a wider opinion to base a purchase on.

OR maybe important addendums? like Binaltech Hound and his easily pop-offable doors, or interesting notes like how the wing mirrors are incorrectly designed, or in the case of Alternator Tracks and Meister, links to their alternative colours, like the Red Meister and the Blue Tracks.

It's neat... when I first starting looking for transformers' sites on the internet, I was just browsing for pictures. It was neat to see write-ups of the toys along with them.

I can definately say with the armada stuff it got me to buy or avoid some figures. Some other reviews even made me get some older figures on ebay (RID Scourge is a good example) that I wouldn't have known otherwise. And, I've also disagreed with some reviews. (I like energon insecticon, so phooey on you, Luke!)

As far as writing reviews goes, I suppose it's just an opportunity to wax on whatever toy's amusing or irritating me at the moment. It's a fun way to get those linguistic muscles flexing before having to write something for a class.

I love it. It's great. One of my favorite things is the summery in the end. All the other sites has 2 lines of summery and an overall grade. This is the only site with a detailed summery,giving you the pros and cons of 5 most important details.
 

Really want the original(basic) Rattrap's gun. Please PM me if you have one you might spare!

No, the tech spec pictures are right, it's Kenner/Hasbro who screwed up the coloring.

Yeah, I find I enjoy writing as much as reading these days...

It's a bastard to administrate the r0x0rZ/sUx0rZ crowd and spam links such things generate. Maybe something based on board registration would be practicable, but we're not averse to posting alternate reviews that are substantially different.

All the reviews are great, the only critisism I'd make is that we don't get enough Aunty Slag ones as he has made me wet myself with laughter more than once. We should chain him to a desk and force him to review every TF ever made until he goes mad. Just now I was glancing through my Maximum Force review as I was printing it off (to impress friends and family with ), and I realised how much I'd been trying subconciously to "Do a Slag", and if I imitate you, you know you're good
