Youtuber Prime vs Prime question

Sorry if this is the wrong forum for this.

I assume that Prime vs Prime on Youtube is known to all you transformers experts here

This is the channel just in case
https://www.youtube.com/c/PrimeVsPrime


He always reviews new transformers figures waaaaaaay ahead of release. Does anyone know how he gets these figures so early?

Yeah, it's probably the standard "has access to stolen factory samples" method.

In fairness there's a number of reviewers who got starts that way.

factory samples have ID sample stamp that's visibly seen. only way to get a retail copy that early is through a corporate contact or most likely a shady contact at the manufacturing/packaging/warehousing level, I also imagine he pays a premium to get these in hand
