    I talked to him a few days ago and he hasn't received Battle Ram yet. He is also dealing with some family issues that are taking much of his time.

    I agree. Poor guy (and his family) are dealing with a lot right now.

    He also has not gotten any Arrow or NA she-Ra samples from Mattel. He told me he will have a review up after he gets his sub items
    Looking forward to the entire 2014 & 2015 line

    I've got a burning question.
    So does Pixel Dan get all his toys for free as a sort of "deal" for doing all these reviews???
    Or does he actually PAY for every figure (as he subs like the rest of us?)

    Just curious... hes got like EVERY figure, even variants that were not part of any subs...

    Dan Has at least one sub that he buys, and he usually gets samples from mattel to review (free of charge for marketing and as a favor too customers who want to see the product before hand). Since Toyguru left, we will see how this goes from here.

    Pixel Dan started off reviewing his own figures and "proved" himself, building up a substantial fan base. Mattel sends out review samples when they can to not only him, but other people as well. As far as I know, he still subscribes to the line.
    Hey, if you want to wallow in the negative, go nuts. Sure, things arenít absolutely perfect, and people passionate about a property can get all keyed up about things. But I donít collect toys to be miserable. So Iíd rather think about the things that do excite me

    Who are those other people and do they also review the figures when they get them?
    I have seen what others have not seen!

    Pop crticia for another. And I think there's others in Europe, I've seen early samples in pics from Cons that Mattel doesn't attend directly.

    A guy called tycondrius fitz has a She-Ra review on youtube, just type in Galactic She-Ra. I really do miss the Pixel Dan treatment though, especially for a figure I think looks really great, yet doesn't seem to have people very excited.

    Yes, he gets them for free provided he does a positive review. Win, win for both parties. It's really the only advertising Mattel does for the line, and it's basically free for them.

    His reviews aren't always positive…he calls the figures like he sees them. Rio Blast recently comes to mind. Besides, Mattel can't exactly say "you gave the figure a bad review, pay up".




    As for the original question, Dan' family must come first. All else is secondary.
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    That's not how advance reviewing works, with these or any other types of upcoming merchandise sent to reviewers (DVDs, games, books). If that were the case, then advanced reviews of any type would have been dismissed decades ago.

    Dan has been critical in many of his reviews, from the Voltron disaster to the latest Mxyzptlk to tons of loose joints in the MOTUC line, and beyond. The key here is that even when he finds things wrong with an item, he doesn't act like a child and scream, and he doesn't incorporate outside factors into the reviews usually. He focuses solely on the toy, not behind-the-scenes politics, story lines, or the like. He is already a very upbeat and positive personality, so when he does criticize, he does so in an adult and mature manner that points out a flaw and moves on.

    Very true. Dan does this as a service to all of us; he's not paid for it. I hope everything turns out alright for he and his family.

    They don't always send out samples, UNO was one of the more recent ones. There have been others also I just can't quite think of who at the moment. Also most if not all of those who review the figures have at least one other sub. Reviewed figures are either kept, used for customization, or passed on to others(typically not cost, at most maybe a raffle of some sort).

    UNO wasn't sent out to keep the figure secret; there was a reason for that one. There have only been a couple outside of that sort of situation that weren't sent out early, mostly due to snafus in the production system that got them arriving late.

    Somebody please contact Pixel Dan...

    I've tried e-mailing him both at his website AND YouTube with no replies.

    Really looking forward to his latest MOTUC reviews... namely battle ram, NA She-Ra, and Arrow

    Last I heard he hadnt received them yet. Surely hes received them by now...

    After all, even I have battle ram and NA she ra in my hands right now.

    Haven't seen any site to review them, so my guess is that no reviewer has gotten them in advance.
