    Not sure of the condition exactly, but is that a good price for a loose complete ROTF Devastator? I never had a chance to buy one in stores cuz he was too expensive for what seemed like a pretty crappy toy, but I do want one for my collection, and there's a guy here in town selling one for $60

    As much as people complained about it, i think it's a fair deal, assuming it's complete, w/in striking distance of new.

    I'm going to assume the supreme one because the legends version wasn't that expensive.

    i'd consider it if some one pays me $60 to take it off his hand.

    It's much better than the $100 he was going for in stores, or the >$100 he usually goes for on eBay. Personally, I'd gladly pay $60.

    Be awarer that oftentimes (going by eBay) Devastator is lacking fingers, "ears", pistons, scoops, cab noses, or other parts, if not full components; Devastator technically doesn't need them to transform into bot mode, but he's still not complete without them. Definitely look before purchase.

    Yes, if you must have it you wont find it for much less than that.

    Really? I would have figured with the almost universal hatred for that figure, he'd be much cheaper by now.

    Lowest I saw it in stores was 50$ cad. Loose. Maybe 40$ or in between.

    I'd say watch a review or 2 on youtube, if you find it appealing enough and YOU think it's worth $60, then go for it.

    I see quite a few of this figure at car boot sales and they're always missing something. Maybe if I'd bought all the ones I've seen I might end up with one complete one and a lot of incomplete ones, but then it would probably work out cheaper and certainly far less hassle to just track down a new one. What always baffles me is when people want thirty-odd quid for their Devy missing almost all the parts just because they paid a hundred for it brand new back when the RotF movie came out.

    Universal hatred? Don't believe everything you read on these boards... Especially when it pertains to the more expensive toys in this hobby.

    I know I'm not being constructive here, but I wouldn't take that toy even if I was the one getting payed 60$ to take it! :p 
    Seriously though, do like some have said already, check out a few reviews, and if you like it enough, go for it.

    60 seems a bit much to me, given how clearanced those things got by the end.

    I wouldn't pay over 50, which luckily I got mine on clearance for that.

    Tryin to customize mine. Maybe I'll appreciate it more. I think there's some better stuff to spend 60 bucks on. But it doesn't matter what I think. Do YOU want it enough to pay 60?

    See, for me I've never seen Devastator on shelves anywhere near long enough to go on sale, much less clearance, and searching eBay is such a hassle (inflated price and/or incomplete), so $60 for an actual complete (if loose) Devastator would be a bargain to me.
