The 2000 defense is nice, the 0 attack is definitely not good.

The effect is only sub-par. The 2000 increase in attack is nice, but Cyber Dragon is still here. Plus, you need a Gadget to get the effect. So, if you are about to attack with this guy and your opponent Rings your only Gadget, you suddenly have a 0 attack monster in attack mode. Very bad!
If a card gets an attack boost, it's best that it doesn't have to have another card on the field to get the boost.

In a Gadget deck, you are going to want to keep on summoning Gadgets to increase your advantage, or a Snipe Hunter to clear the way. You DON'T want to summon a card that is dependent on the gadgets which are already dependent on your spell and traps. What's great about Gadgets is that while they are dependent on other cards to survive due to their weak attack score, they increase the probability of drawing those cards with their effects.

To put it simply, you DON'T want to play this card. Being dependent on something that is dependent is not good at ALL!

2000 DEF is good, 0 ATK is not. You win a duel by attacking or burning or milling, not by hiding behind monsters with 2000 DEF hoping to draw a Gadget to boost his ATK. The Trap Monster was better, and still isn't played, so guess what this card is going to get?

Traditional-1/5
Advanced-1/5

Dead Revolve Mobile Soldier
****
Earth/Machine/Effect
Increase the ATK of this card by 2000 points if you have a face-up "Gadget" on your side of the field.
ATK/0 DEF/ 2000


Dead Revolve Mobile Soldier is a Machine Type monster that needs a Gadget on your side of the field to have 2000 ATK. I don't believe its a bad card, but neither good also. Giant Rat can either search out this or a gadget. Chances are you have at least 2 sets of gadgets in your deck, so I see this being searched by Giant Rat other than a gadget if you are trying to boost him up.

2000 ATK can beat most things that your opponent can Normal Summon. Card Trooper sticks at 1900 and anything else is below that. When it comes to special summons Cyber Dragons, DMoCs, and a few others will annoy you easily.

Defending with him is great because of 2000 DEF, but on the other hand since it doesn'y have 2100 DEF a Cyber Dragon can go right through him.

Limiter Removal can boost him up to 4000 along with your gadget, but only for a final shot on the opponent's life points.

He is an Earth monster so he can be summoned by Giant Rat or removed from play for Gigantes.

It amazes me how the simplest of combos can escape your average Yu-Gi-Oh! duelist, especially given the fact that so much time is spent on building OTK's.

- Set Boot up Soldier (what's up with the OCG names?)
- So long as it's not hit by Nobleman of Crossout or Cyber Dragon, it's 2000 DEF should let is survive.
- Next turn, play Machine Duplication to summon 2 more copies from your deck.
- Normal summon a Gadget (shouldn't be hard, since you run 6-9 of them in a Gadget deck).
- You now have 3x 2000 ATK monsters, along with 1x 1200-1400 ATK Gadget.

Sadly, people would rather use Machine Dup on Card Trooper then on this, but then, this game hardly needs another OTK-type combo ^_^

--------------------------------------------

Traditional:
1/5 - ZZZZZzzzzzzzz

Advanced:
2/5 - has some OTK Potential in a Gadget deck, but I doubt anyone will try to use it anytime soon.

Boot-Up Soldier - Dread Dynamo (TCG Name)
Level 4
Earth
[Machine/Effect]
While you have a face-up "Gadget" monster on your side of the field, this card gains 2000 ATK.
0/2000

Well here we see the gadget support that on one uses. The big thing about this, is that you can't search it out. The effect is really good though, a lot of people overlook this card, but it no being searchable by a gadget effect really makes this card not played so much. Let's look more into shall we? First off, it has 2000 DEF which can stand up to many monsters in the format, and it gives Gadgets a defense, which is the problem gadgets can have, that they are not really fit to be set, this card you can. Creating a 2000 ATK monster makes Boot-Up Soldier a 2000/2000 Monster with a gadget, and those stats are nothing to scoff at. With all the defensive traps (or in the case of decree, Quickplay spells) you should be able to make sure the gadget or Boot-Up Soldier stays on the field. Try it out, it can do well, just it's a card you have to draw, not searched out by a gadget effect.

Traditional: 1/5 I don't like gadgets here
Advanced: 2/5 It's good, but not being searchable really makes this card not as good as people would think.
