Windsaber review
check out my first ever 3rd party transformer purchase (I thought it was going to be Mastermind Creations' Salvia Prominon but this cost like 1/3 as much so it was an easier pill to swallow.)  See her full video review on my youtube channel here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=uM9kbR…

yeah, I saw the preview commercials and saw they were doing a spoof of some 8-bit games, which I really like...so I decided to give the show the benefit of the doubt and watch it.  The result was...actually not bad, I really liked the art style and animation, plus the jokes were legitimately funny.  Of course the show still sucks and even this enjoyable episode doesn't do anything to redeem it, and here are 3 simple reasons why:

1- Massive Filler: The first sketch, Starfire in Legend of Zelda, took up nearly half of the episode by itself, they obviously wrote about 5 minutes of material and had to stretch it into the 11 minute run time.
2- Nothing to do with Teen Titans: I know the creators of this show are the same team that did MAD, which was a funny sketch comedy show, and this episode felt exactly like that, but frankly the fact that it starred the Teen Titans had ZERO to do with anything.  This episode could just as easily have been made for Uncle Grandpa, Clarence, Adventure Time, Regular Show, or Steven Universe.  It's a stock plot that you could put ANY character names into and lose (or gain) NOTHING.
3- Why was this even on TV?  I have seen stuff EXACTLY like this on NEWGROUNDS, in fact I've seen even better sketches done using nothing more than animated sprites and Smash Bros as connective tissue done by relative amateurs.  I guess it could be worse though.
So, I'm sure this has been around for a while but nintendo has announced that they're going to start releasing more characters as DLC, and they're even taking some fan polls so we can vote for characters we'd like to see, even 3rd party characters are valid choices.  So Nintendo is likely to add at least 5 more characters so I'm curious what you guys would like to see.  I'm going to share my top 5 picks and you can reply with yours in the comments.  (Just remember to keep it limited to actual video game characters, so no votes for Naruto or Goku or something.  Just because they've been in video games doesn't mean they're video game characters.)
1- Krystal from Star Fox, this is the one I personally cast a vote for in the poll.
2- At least one more Sonic character (Metal Sonic, Amy, Knuckles, or Tails.  I'd be happy with any of them)
3- Simon Belmont, this way we'd have the cast of Captain N playable
4- Earthworm Jim, it has been WAY too long since the last game he's been in.
5- Vaati, there's more than one bad guy in the Zelda franchise dudes...though I'm guessing they'd go with Majora's Mask Skull Kid.

Also, on a side note, I'd like to see a few more skins applied to the existing characters (like how you can be any of the Koopalings, Alph as an alternate to Olimar, and 3 of the characters can change their gender.)  Peach should have a proper Daisy skin instead of just recoloring her with a yellow dress and red hair, Sonic should be able to swap between his classic and boom looks, and Megaman can be his other incarnations such as X, exe, and Star Force.

citadel is a good paint with lots of colors and it doesn't need sealant. Testors also doesn't need sealant, but can be harder to apply since some colors are thin and watery while others can be sticky. Anita's or Americanna are cheap, smooth, and can even be mixed to create unique shades, but it can easily scratch or peel off without a sealant or finish.

Hey wake angle:

Do they still sell the Jazz wares brand Sonic figures at the toys R us near you (you know the ones you always use for your conversions)?  Because I just visited the one in my town in Clackamas, and all I found was the sonic boom versions.

Am I too late, or do I just need to try another store (or eBay if I'm desperate)?

I haven't seen any Jazwares figures in my store for at least 2 weeks.  I don't think they're extinct yet but they are getting harder to find.

Um, hello sir. I've been watching your videos, and I picked up a thing or two about how your commission service works. Not that I'm asking for a commission any time soon, but I'm just curious about some things at the moment:
1) Can customers actually ask you which base toy(s) should be used or do they have to make one of those "box commissions" if they want to be specific about the base toy(s)?
2) Can you remind me at which intervals can the customers talk about specific details of the custom?
3) Do you accept tips from customers who are willing to pay a little extra for a job-well-done?

Thanks in advance, and sincere apologies if these questions come off as annoying/redundant.

1- If you want to use a specific base toy that's fine, as long as it's possible to make it into what you want, don't expect me to turn a Superman figure into Kirby or something like that.
2- you can ask any questions about your toys at any time before and during my work
3- People have given me a little extra in the past before, which is very nice of them, but you shouldn't feel obligated to do so.

Uh hey its Jay M from Youtube.You know the guy who entered that fan art contest of yours and you said my art looked like that of a little kid.Well here's the thing. I am 17. So I got really offended by that. Don't worry I am not mad at your or anything. But I just wanted to tell you of your mistake. I of course realize how not good my art is compared to other people. But I have improved I have improved.I even managed to get Paint.net and used it to make some of my drawings better looking. So I have gotten better. If you want to check out some of my art (and art made by friends of mine for me) you can check out my DA page.
