Echoing what a lot of the other commenters have said, I watch and like most of the other reviewers on this list, no question.  Robo is a great reviewer who I really glean a lot from, and I like Dan Larson's sardonic approach. I also really dig Boog's devotion to posing, feel like he's second place (know that's not a thing here), in terms of making me rethink how I'm posing and displaying my figs. 

But the guy who's done the most to get me back into the action figure hobby, for the longest running time now has got to be Shartimus. Really love his reviews and the way he speaks to the audience in a way that feels personal, and that's a special skill.  Wear his pin proudly on my backpack.

DD19 is the homie. Great reviews. Detailed reviews. Honest reviews. And makes custom capes for Batman/Majin Buu. All amazing wired capes. 

Good luck to him!

For me, Robo has got his reviews down to a succinct science, emphasizing the things I really want to know about figures I may be inclined to buy. Plus, he’s a funny dude. He gets a vote from me.

If this were a vote for "best toy collecting channel", Dan Larson and Toy Galaxy would easily have my vote. But as far as best toy reviewer... Shartimus's reviews are undeniably the most concise and thorough, while still retaining a level of entertainment.

Gotta give it up to Brad the DC Geek. I know his reviews are slightly limited to DC figs but he’s recently started doing thorough reporting on industry toy news and interviews that keep us informed on not just DC Multiverse but other lines as well! Hard voting regardless as all of them are great!

Erivera94 has a great sense of humor and very detailed during his reviews.

I don’t know how he does it but he reviews toys weeks before they even hit the shelves.

I suspect he works for Hasbro 😎.

Just asking..... How is he a sell out? I don't watch his channel but I'm just curious as to what you mean. 

He has been around forever.   He posted here back in the early-mid 00s as Mandalorian30.  He started off as a legit toy reviewer who took the hobby seriously.  Then Mattel started sending him MOTUC early and he was huge in the community for doing reviews on those.  His presence in the community grew even larger when he would preview MOTU items early at the Mattel booth during NYTF and SDCC.  He was a true asset to the community.

When MOTUC went to Super7 he didn't get samples early.  He still reviews toys but his channel is mostly stereotypical Youtuber crap where he reviews slime and every video has a thumbnail picture of him with a stupid expression on his face.  He's not about the hobby anymore and is a complete sellout to YouTube.  The picture I'm sharing is typical Pixel Dan stuff.

I respect your top 5. I'll take any feedback you have to improve since i'm the only one that's not good for you.  Constructive criticism is welcomed.  Respectfully Would like to know why you don't like my reviews.

I just saw your top ten Marvel Legends, erivera.  Half I agreed with and half I was thinking, "WTF"?  But that's the fun of it.

There were 6 I was stuck between and I narrowed it down to 3, then I landed on one! It was quite difficult to choose just one although I ended up choosing the one out of the three that I can relate to most!

I feel like everyone on the list did a great job though! 2018 was good... May 2019 be better!

Hey man, thanks for the love! I work pretty hard to put out content that has a good mix of facts and entertainment value. If you are enjoying what I do that means everything. Thanks m'man!

I would say voting had just opened and he likely had his subscribers come and vote for him.

I just want to note, You are more than welcome to share your thoughts on why you support or voted for someone but this isn't about attacking people. If you don't like a reviewer that is fine but I don't want this degrading to a such and such sucks or what have you. Hopefully that goes without saying. This is for fun to celebrate all the folks who take the time to try and contribute to the hobby and make it a better thing.

Future cyborg? He barely post any reviews and he got 20% already the last review was 2 months ago, what is going on with this pole? Why isn't Emgo on the list? Really hard to choose still from the list I really enjoy a lot of the people some of never heard of like future cyborg still surprised he has almost as much votes as shartimusprime despite the fact he has barely any content, in the end I voted for robo I found his reviews very entertaining this year

EDIT: NOTE: I just want to note, You are more than welcome to share your thoughts on why you support or voted for someone but this isn't about attacking people. If you don't like a reviewer that is fine but I don't want this degrading to a such and such sucks or what have you. Hopefully that goes without saying.

If there is a reviewer you like who you don't see here its because no one nominated them during the nomination process. Its not meant as a slant or means a reviewer is bad in any way.

 

Daredevil19 is more interactive and just a good person to people in general. I only know of Robo, Dan Larsen, D Amazing, and sadly Shtamus Prime...love Robo Dan and D Amazing but Daredevil 19 hands down has fun with his reveiws and treats everyone w respect. Hes all around a good dude and not rude and poserish like a certain someone on this list i didnt say who out of reapect for the forum but they know who they are hahaha. Daredevil 19 for president bruhs 😸👍

I'm not familiar with all of these reviewers, but Daredevil19 is doing fantastic work. He's modest and trustworthy, and he has a good sense of levity for entertainment value. 

I registered to vote for him. I highly recommend his channel.
