    Comparison Time totally got the shaft!

    (I know he showed them side-by-side, but he never focused on it as per custom)

    It's a great piece, and I can't believe I hadn't even really noticed the weird, colorful emblem on the back side yet until Dan pointed it out.

    I can't help but think that it is an image of the Fighting Foe Man who invented it - sort of like a stamp of creatorship.

    It's fun to imagine, anyway. Of course, now I want to see a Custom Figure of that guy.

    I wish mine had been in as good of shape as Pixel Dan's. I love the Battle Ram, but QC issues with it and Man At Arms did put a damper on it. It's sort of like some one went to hand you something you've always wanted, then through it on the ground and stomped on it a few times before spitting in your face and then walking away. I'm left sitting here with spit on my face and a beat up toy, going "yeah I guess it's still kinda neat."

    Awesome review as always by Dan. I love that he is always having fun with toys. Isn't that what this hobby is all about? Thanks Dan!

    They just pulled it for the Cyber Monday sale. I'm sure it will be back soon.

    The Sky Sled has always been my favorite vehicle in MOTU. I'm more excited for an Evil Warriors Sky Sled than I am the Battle Ram itself! Though that is still awesome. Just wish the Evil Warriors Sky Sled was in green. Pretty disappointed with that. It's like getting a Filmation Hordak without his Filmation style head.

    That weird face on the back really doesn't fit in with the rest of the vehicle. Might see if I can remove it when I get mine.

    Great review as always. I find myself really torn on the finished product though.

    Whenever Mattel adds features that remind me that this is just a toy - such as the firing mechanism - it makes me question if I should have spent so much money on it. I know that probably sounds strange considering how deep we are in the line at this point and the fact that I am posting this on a site dedicated to these things, but I get this little itch that says "You could have bought new curtains for the spare room with this money."

    I think that the Battle Ram is such a faithful recreation I am somehow finding it hard to turn away from the fact I just spent over £100 on the same toy I had when I was six

    Think of all the socks I could have bought with the money I spent on Battle Ram!

    I think 'I could have bought new curtains' may be one of the most boring sentences I've ever read
    Bask in the glory of your MOTUC collection and to hell with curtains!

    Love the "pew-pew" at the end where (at least this) adult collector isn't afraid to start playing with his 'toys'! Hopefully BR goes back up for sale after all of the Cyber Monday garbage is over with.
    Harken the coming of Dragstor!!

    I wonder why Dan doesn't post his own videos in the forums anymore? Nowadays someone else does it.

    Maybe it's old man Withers' fault?

    He got all that flooding dealt with, then he just finished putting in flooring. So his basement is still being set up. Things are still a bit chaotic for the poor guy, especially with all that happened with little Spencer. He definitely looked for the vintage Battle Ram during filming but couldn't locate it.

    The vintage battle ram was shown very briefly , Dan just didn't say "it's comparison time",
    Man I feel for the guy with his baby being un-well and the flood,
    but you know it's a good sign when I still watch the review when I already had the product,

    Oh yeah, keep the beard, it looks good , kinda evil pixel-dan

    Great review. I love Dan's enthusiasm for this line. I love my Battle Ram.

    Pleasantly surprised that he has managed to put a review together, despite all the other things he has got going on now.

    Thank you Dan
