    Or are people banking on fansproject to make him crossfire 3, which in turn is driving up the price and making fans think twice about selling it.

    he's been uber valuable for at least since two years ago....i wanted one BADLY when it came out but it was around that time when wal-mart got rid of layaway :( 

    and apprantly it has been confirmed that crossfire x3 is neither a devastator upgrade set or their glacialbots set.....which means it is nothing we can figure out ><

    Hmmm he is super rare in UK seen a few on eBay.com but he is like $130, if I'm not mistaken was around $40 when he was released.

    Classics Devastator is not rare, just ridiculously expensive.

    More than often, you can still see him up for sale on eBay but you'll have to fork out higher dollars. :)

    ^This, but you couldn't actually pay me that much to own one. I think he's a terrible figure. But then again, I dislike all Energon combiners.

    I think after the FansProject Superion and Bruticus sets people are just hedging their bets and buying up all the Devastators out there just in case.

    I paid $45 for one back in 2007 on the junkion Exchange. He was never released outside of the U.S but i didn't think he's that uber rare.

    Well they haven't reissued him since 2007. Bruticus and Superion have though.

    Well back in 2007 I reallly desperately wanted him. This was around the time cliffjumper and ramjet came out for classics. Was extremely happy to find it after checking three walmarts. $30 at the time. Almost paid $50 for a loose set off ebay.

    Even though we knew it was a repaint. It is a G1 colors version of a well scaled imposing devastator toy, with five triple changing robot, vehicle, combiner robots. Its actually very impressive for the time.

    But I don't think you should get it now, since the engineering is showing its age.
    its a great piece for the 2006-07 original US classics line. Bulks up the that decepticon roster well. Probably would be odd with the modern stuff, even generations.

    I display the combined set with energon tidal wave and cybertron menasor the decepticon super heavy weapon aesthetic runs deep in those designs.

    I believe he was only $30. But I could be wrong.

    You can still easily find a loose/complete one for 70-85 on Ebay.

    I think it was $30 as well. But that set was on Rollback at a lot of stores and the pricing was weird. Even when it went on clearance, it was still marked at whatever its retail price had been.

    Meh, I got the Energon version already. I don't need to fork over more money for a green repaint. Even with fanproject I doubt it'll look that much better. Just a ugly toy imo.

    I got mine for $20 on clearance, along with the last of Classics Megatron and Optimus, and Jetfire. It was so weird too because this store had a bunch of them, and everywhere else was sold out. It was like someone found a box of them they forgot to stock LOL.

    Anyway I don't think the figure is all that bad. A new head would do wonders.
