Nice review.

Dirge is one of the few figures from the current batch that I'm interested in. Good to see that he's not going to be a waste.

*Woooo. I even remembered how to upload this stuff!*

Thrust's facial expression is identical to Ramjet's, that is a stern, sombre look. It's white instead of black, though. Again, like Ramjet, there are two ways that you could leave the wings. You could swing it up like the G1 toy, leading to a Thrust that really looks like his character model. This ...

Yeh, Thrust's a gem. I like how Hasbro is pissing at those who got Botcon and Henkei Thrust by releasing a mass-market one that's more show accurate than the other two. He even has the Henkei chrome! But will they re-release Thundercracker and Dirge? I'd bet on it, but then the question becomes can...

Right, they're all going into the "Transformers 2010" index with a prefix of 2010_ for the purpose of retaining sanity. Kamen and Blackjack: I'm probably going to add any reviews into the sql database with "PCC" or "Gen." into the review name to denote what's what, and leave "Hunt for Decepticons" ...

"The Kingdom" a sequel to "Kingdom Come" is not that great, certainly no-where near the epicness of "Kingdom Come" I've been reading the miniseries "52" most recently, and so far that has been fantastic. Also, the latest Blue Beetle series written by Giffen and Rogers is tons of fun. For older stuff...

Your review is pretty good, but one mistake I saw consistently (edited now) is a failure to capitalize proper nouns (Optimus, Star Wars), section titles (Robot Mode), and after a full stop. Otherwise, everything is fairly clean, and I'm hoping to see some Star Wars mini-figures in your pictures. ;) ...

You're assessment is pretty accurate to my own view: not unwatchable, but not a must see either.

It would also be a huge help if you ran the review through a spelling/grammar check before posting, at the very least. And remember, this template may be boring...

I see. Then how about this:

Articulation: Does the articulation help or hinder posing the figure? Mention any problems with posing. 1=Greatly Hinders 10=Greatly Helps

I dunno, I think articulation should stand alone. Maybe include in the description how useful or useless the points of articulation for the figure impact the poses. Articulation: Describe points of articulation. Does the figure pose well? Any noticeable distractions? Do you mean you think there sho...

Updated the 'Transformation' section to focus more on quality of transformation instead of complexity. Maybe at the end (before the scores) a 'Final Remarks' section? Basically a short summary of the pros/cons of the figure? Hm. Isn't that the point of the Scores in the first place? That said, I do ...

Nice review. I also immediately think of the Terror Who Flaps in the Night when I hear 'Darkwing'. I just posted a review for Universe Darkwind using the new template and point scoring scheme. If you would all take a look at it, and see if it fits well and the point assignments make sense, that inpu...
