I was looking around youtube and there's a lot of people reviewing toys. I don't have the time to subscribe and watch all the toy reviewers' videos, so to help determine which ones I subscribe to I ask the knowledgeable community here:
1.Who is your favorite youtube toy reviewer and why?
2.Are there any youtube toy reviewers that are popular/highly subscribed to, but whom you dislike and find the videos of overrated? If so, who and why?

I'm only familiar with the Transformer reviewers, of which my favorite by far is Thew (Barutazaru-- http://www.youtube.com/user/barutazaru?blend=1&ob=5). Hilarious and irreverant, with a personable delivery. All should check out the "Bumblebee Brouhaha," his reviews of ROTF Leader Prime and Jetfire, Armada Jetfire, and his worst Transformer of all time video. If you don't pleeple yourself laughing, there's something wrong with you. He's so metal, has a thing for lightpiping, and works in throw away references to his childhood like "the great sewer mission of '86" of which some bot did not survive that I find eminently charming. He also has that self-depricating British humor (he is British, after all) that works great and keeps him from being abnoxious like...
Vangelus, who I don't care for. I know it's a schtick and he can be amusing, but his vids are a bit much.
For serious reviews, I like Peaugh who always seems to get things months early.
Oh, heck with it. Here's Thew's Bumblebee Brouhaha:
