    Filipino Transformers Community Cybertron Philippines has gotten hold of a Classics Devastator.

    [​IMG]

    We were wondering how this exclusive compares to the Energon Constructicon Maximus. Here are some pics:

    We have also mixed and matched the limbs to give Classics Devastator the G1 look.

    Cool! I like the version that combines with the 2 green Energon figures. Looks more "classic" overall.

    I also like the purple and silver deco on the chest better. More dynamic.

    That looks prety sweet; I think the more uniform colour scheme helps this toy a LOT. Since I didn't get the Energon version I might well have to pick this one up. Thanks for the pics!

    kinda wish he was completely formed in the box... so this will be an opener for me.

    I don't really mind the repaint since I don't have any form of Devestator.

    So if they have it in the Philippines... they should be stocked here in a month or so?

    I was actually really excited about this set until seeing these pictures. Now I'm not so sure.

    Maybe I'll just get a KO WST Devastator and call it good...

    The colours are obviously more co-ordinated, but he still looks like a tornado hit a builders yard.

    Definately a "no thanks" from me!

    I'm still undecided on this one. I like the new colors and C. Max was by far my favorite of the Energon gestalts, but I already have a complete C. Max and I'm not really sure I need a second version of him.

    If I do get him, I'd be highly tempted to try my hand at some kitbashing. Just to make a couple of the limbs more distinct. It wouldn't be hard to stick a cement mixer drum or dump truck bed onto one of the cranes. What to do with the shovel, though, that's the tough one.

    I still think this is a bit of a rip-off, design wise.

    Duping 2 molds to create 4 characters? Meh...

    Is Wal-Mart Canada getting this guy?

    Please tell me they are.

    And I've got a few modifications planned for him myself... I bought a few KO Constructicons for spare parts, like the chestplate, head, and rifle...

    Hmm... I'm a little more interested in him now... still I've got my Universe Devastator with my Classics so even if I do get "Classics Devastator" I'll probably put him with my Universe figures to replace the gap created by putting the Universe one with my Classics...

    Still, he does look better than expected...

    I'm still amazed people still haven't gotten over this fact in the two years since these molds have been out.

    Constructicon musical chairs eh?
