What the hell is he talking about?
Apparently the new guy doing SSC toy reviews is a dude who tried to take over OSR on Facebook through a lawsuit because he wanted to be made a Admin and owner said kick rocks.

Now that people know that, SSC allegedly is banning accounts on their website of people who talk s*** about the new reviewer.

This is what he looks like:

I have plenty to say about the a***** that is Jon Deak. On the surface he seems like an okay guy but he's been doing a huge amount of back door deals to get his way with the likes of sideshow and hot toys. See how I used back door there. :sneaky:

*Takes a deep breath* - - - He threatened multiple admins on one sixth republic in an attempt to make himself an admin and take over their facebook. For Jon it's always taking the easy way out. So he wanted to wriggle his way into a site that was already established so he could takeover the user base. It didnt work.

He then made deals with Dave over at sideshow freaks to usurp much of the members there as long as he didnt create a competing forum. So he made a facebook group that directly competed with osr and ported over many of ssf members. Not only that but dave allowed him to spam ssf repeatedly for months about his new site. I actually thing I got a pm from him about joining the site directly on fb and I didnt have a clue who he was. I'm thinking many ssf members got the same and thats how he became so popular so quickly.

Fast forward to a couple months ago and he has wormed his way into a position at Sideshow itself as their official hot toy reviewer! this immediately went bad as he is the most awkward cuck you'll ever see. Not only does he produce ham fisted reviews he cant even pronounce their names correctly. lol Want the new Thanus figure anyone? So he's essentially made a couple bad reviews and people are taring him apart. Partly do to him being a full time a****** and partly because he's just a horrible reviewer. This has promted sideshow itself to protect their little man-child with all they got and have been banning those who comment on him.

Yea, he does suck in that video.

Oh and it doesn't matter to me anyway. I can't stand youtube toy reviews. Of any kind. I find them very cringy. They all try too hard. Give me nicely lit pictures.

Oh that guy. Don't know the man but I remember when he was relentlessly plugging his articles and YT channel on SSF way back, and I do mean RELENTLESSLY. Saw one or two of his videos and he comes off as disturbingly juvenile, so I never saw any of his videos again.

I don’t watch YouTube reviews either so I have no idea who that guy is.

Zod, you'll want to watch the first two minutes of this one. It's well worth your time. lolol
I watched the first two minutes then skipped around a bit. What an awkward, thinks-he’s-funny, a**-kissing piece of s***. Reviews like this are why I don’t watch YouTube reviews in the first place. And over 30 minutes long? f*** that. Show the figure, list a couple pros and cons, then shut the f*** up. No one needs to see your face. No one wants to hear your bullshit “jokes”. No one gives a s*** how important you think you are.

I don’t understand this desire to be internet-famous. People like this sacrifice their dignity in the desperate hope that they receive validation from strangers that they don’t receive from people in real life. The main reasons for other people avoiding them is that they are devoid of a genuine opinion on anything and are so socially awkward that they only illicit pity and/or disgust. Sideshow deserves any blow-back they’re getting for making this colossal douchebag their official reviewer. If I were HT, I’d demand he never gets compensation or attention for reviewing any of their products.

Exactly. Just give a quick review of the item. some pros and some cons. I don't need to see your face. What else in the the room or your porn star watch. I also don't need to be shown every.single.detail. One of the great things about the items we collect is discovering and seeing the fine details for yourself. Unless you are one that just pulls from the box, sit on shelf and say I got a hot toys doll.

In a nutshell, is the item you reviewing in the ballpark of comparably priced items?

I haven't even heard about this guy until a day ago. I know the type, these are the kind of people that you want to avoid like the plague.

I never heard of him until I watched his ht wick review and thought “this is the guy ss picked as their official reviewer?” Don’t know anything about the person but his reviews are terrible

Why would you try to put the “right” hands on the left arms, with the gauntlet? Kinda unnecessary to even mention.

Speaking of hands, what the hell was he doing with his the whole time? It was like he had no muscle movement. Was he so nervous to be doing reviews out of his comfort zone?

Anyway, I love watching toy reviews on YouTube. It’s one of the few things I will actively seek out on the site. That said, that one was bad. And I’m actually subscribed to him, so I know he’s done decent ones in the past.

We're not asking the important questions. How do butt plugs factor into this equation? If this guy is Friar Tuck does that mean Robin Hood is stealing from Pornhub and giving to the poor?

Something to do with the John Wick review he did. I think it was a comb sticking up in view of the intro that he likes to do where it shows his face.

It was an upside down lint roller used as a mic stand. A bit goof like some of the other things he does. People picked up on how it looked and took off with it.
