As soon as my local store has these, I will be grabbing one. (I have a gift voucher so need to buy it from them).

As far as I know, this set is exclusive to TLG, so that might not be an option.

Not sure about other countries, but here in Hungary it is listed at ~15 retailers and toy shops at one of the price comparison sites, so it's definitely not exclusive everywhere.

Lucky you! Unfortunately it's TLG-exclusive here in the UK.

In all fairness it’s not listed on the Lego uk site as an exclusive is it just more that it’s not in stock anywhere yet which is just like the D11 and BMW are in most places.

Don’t you hate it when a big time reviewer builds a kit and completely shags it by putting something obvious on backwards like a panel but doesn’t realize all the way through

Besides the obvious fact that none of us is infallible, I suggest to try building a set while you are recording it and trying to make it look good on camera, and possibly taking notes about the build the same time, and so on.

I’ll leave that to professionals like yourself.  I would have thought he would have realized and edited or redone the build to fix the mistake especially since the instructions are so dumbed down according to the review.

I don't think I'm a professional, maybe I did more reviews than others. But I also do make mistakes and I don't recognize them all before posting, we are human after all. I simply found your condescending tone unnecessary, and tried to point out that the whole exercise might be more complex than you think for the first sight and errors might slip through easily.

I agree with above.

I think is always better to focus on positives and in my opinion videos with reviews and guides made both by Sariel and RacingBrick are on very high level and their contribution into LEGO Technic building is priceless.

Regarding errors in reviews videos (made by (almost) professionals):

I remember Sariel's review of 10277 Crocodile locomotive, and in his review he didn't realise that pantograph can be fully lowered - as he thought it could be lowered only partially. Somebody kindly remarked that in comment and Sariel admitted his omission and everything was just fine.

Its power of a community: we learn from each other and all that process makes us better builders. And even expert builders are not gods nor immune to (simple) errors.

Kind regards
