For the past three years I drove that car and enjoyed almost everything about the car except for the the fact that in 2015 cars were still being made with manual key locks.

Review: Automoblox Mini X10 Timber Pack & Chaos and HR5 Scorch 2-Pack

Automoblox Minis Creations

This time around I had Andrew play with them to his hearts content prior to any sort of video. When the time came to make the video below he had had so much playtime with them that he could speak to them much better than an on the spot unboxing. He’s learning how to do these reviews with me. I’m learning how to give him his own space to talk about things in his way.
