    Being that in my opinion Supreme Devastator utterly sucks (mainly because of the price tag), could Hasbro cash in on his name by maybe re-releasing Classics Devastator in the next year. I wasn't around the hobby when he was released the first time around and I wouldn't hesitate picking him up. Especially with how suprisingly awesome ROTF Superion has turned out to be. Would you be for it?

    Hell yes. My WalMart never got him, and he goes for insane prices on the Bay. They could repaint him like Movie Devs, too.

    Could work. Already got one, so wouldn't buy it myself, but it's a solid set of toys so it would be good for all the people who want one to be able to get one.

    I've been failing at getting it off ebay. Did manage the original Energon version, but I'd still like to see Habsro release the mold again. A G2 inspired redeco might be nice too.

    Ebay:
    Not going to happen any time soon. Releasing it anytime in the next year will cut into the movie Devestator sales. Hasbro knows people will pass up the Movie version if they know the classics one will be coming out. Considering they sunk $$$ into its development, they don't want any thing cutting into sales of it. Notice the legends version isn't coming out while the $99 version is on the shelves.

    I would say hell yes!! but knowing Hasbro they will probably never do it. especially with ROTF Devs being around.

    A G2 Orange or Yellow (or BOTH) repaint would be very appreciated.

    Got mine at Walmart a couple of years ago for $15 on clearance. I didn't know it was on sale until I got to the counter. Nice surprise. :) 

    There are some people that don't like it because its just a repaint but I absolutely love mine. Awesome combiner IMO.

    IMO, Classics Devasator is a piece of junk. My figures legs constantly fall off, if I move his arms everything falls off, it seems every time I look at him he's slanting more and more to one side.

    It's sad cuz he's such a neat look figure and I would love to have more enjoyment from him. Maybe I got a defective one years ago . . .
