By the way, does Eljay plan to continue the Recent Reviews for the 2016 sets after he wraps up 08?
NickonAquaMagna is the best reviewer in my opinion, cutting the extraneous stuff and going straight into set design with a fair-minded but logical mindset and explanation.
Nick's reviews aren't for everyone (the length limits the potential viewership significantly IMO). But I absolutely love how he picks apart sets from an aesthetic point of view. As someone who invests a lot of time and energy into MOCing things that flow and look good, his reviews are a joy to watch.
I'm never been certain about putting my trust into anyone who's subscribed to Game Grumps tho...
Yeah; every time I watch one of his reviews, I feel inspired to go and make a MOC and focus mainly on achieving such an aesthetic flow; there's only one that I really feel like I've succeeded on that front with, and it's unfortunately not on my topic yet.
@Eljay I'm sorry eljay, jang is better because...
I can't shake the feeling that Nick is a bit too apologetic toward some sets but it might be just me personally disagreeing with him. Either way, I like watching his reviews from time to time as he often makes some good points about certain design choices.
To me, the best toy reviewer on YouTube is TJOmega or Type V3
Unfortunately, they only do Lego videos every now and then...
And TJ doesn't like Bionicle...
As for strictly building toys like Lego or MB, my favorite reviewer is Jang.

I don't see the need to waste my time.

I generally watch Eljay for Bionicle. and Jang for system. Seeing as I find Eljay's style better for forming my own opinion.
(Also watching the old recaps is oddly nostalgic)
... Huh? What does this even mean? Because I feel that it's a waste of my personal time to review my own creations, working for Lego is a waste of time all of a sudden?
I'll always favor Jang over Eljay. No offence @Eljay, Jang just seems to be... well, I can't think of the word but it means that he's better than you IMO
He didn't say Mocing was a waste of time, what he was saying is that it would be a waste of time for him to review his own Mocs. He was clearly responding to what tesla said
which really would be a waste of time for Eljay if he's just reviewing his own Mocs.
I agree, personally.Reviewing other mocs is fine, but reviewing your own creation seems pointless to me.
