The Review That Never Was..... *UPDATED*

Later this month will be the seventh anniversary of when I started my Youtube Channel. Over the years a lot of weird things have happened that I haven't really shared with too many people. This is a little story about an inside joke that I have with myself...

Almost every year I take photos of a certain toy, but have never put a review together and released a review of it. The toy in question is the Jishakku Change Series Robotack figure. For the uninitiated, Tetsuwan Tantei Robotack is the last Toei Metal Hero show. Robotack himself has two modes, Normal and Special Mode which he can switch to when the Wonder Flute is played.

I've had this figure pretty much since Robotack was on the air. When I started my channel in 2007, I didn't have any interest in doing any reviews or videos on any non-Henshin Item toys. As time went on, however, I added a couple of Henshin Belts, Action Figures, Super Sentai Mecha, and Model Cars. When I first started dabbling in Action Figures in late 2007/2008, I put together a photo set of the Robotack figure...which never made it to video for whatever reason.

Two years later I came across the set again and decided to take a fresh set of pictures since I was using better backdrops than I was using during the original set. Nothing ever came of this set either. Another year went by, another set...no video... In total, I have taken four sets of pictures of the same toy with nothing to show for it.

Now, in saying this...there are quite a few videos that I have made and never uploaded. Also, there are quite a few videos that I have taken multiple photo sets for due to quality issues. The Robotack figure is different because there is absolutely no reason for me not make a video of it. All of the pictures I have ever taken have been good and it's actually a really cool toy.

Maybe it will finally happen if I put it on my Google Calendar as my 401st video? Or shall the joke continue...?


*UPDATE* Added to my schedule as Video #401. Took yet another set of photos and put together the video just to make sure.


  1. I'd vote to stop the curse on the little figure and give it a review.

  2. Looking forward to see this review... when ever that will be. LOL
