Does Penguin hold reviews on new effects?

One of the things I like about Penguin Magic is that they have no qualms about publishing negative reviews of effects. But I'm wondering if they might try to spur sales of new effects by holding all reviews if the initial ones aren't as glowing as they had hoped? I'm thinking specifically of "Taken," which has been on the Bestseller list for a while now, with not a single review? The description makes it sound almost too good to be true, and I'm curious to read feedback from those who've already purchased it.

Taken is still brand new. It was released less than a week ago.

The only people who have access to it are those who purchased it immediately or those who attended MAXX West.

After they receive the effect, it takes time to write a review. Then after all of that the reviews go through an approval process to edit out cursing, and exposure. This takes time as well.
