    Up until now, I loved all the Devastator upgrade parts from CrazyDevy but I just received CDMW-09 in the mail a few days ago and am very disappointed.

    1. The right should brace advertised as "allowing 45 degree inward movement of right arm" is almost a lie! From the pics and description, one would think it is a pivotable joint that lets you move the shoulder in and out 45 degrees. WRONG. It's set at a static 45 degree inward angle forever. It's not a joint at all.

    2. The new waist that allows left/right rotation of the waist leaves too much of a vertical gap between Hook and Longhaul. I wouldn't say it's the sturdiest attachment either. Good luck trying to rotate Devastator at the waist without his upper and lower halves crumbling apart unexpectadly.

    3. The purple cement mixer barrel: actually this is the best part of the set. No complaints here.

    Yeah, I think they're pushing it a little too far with those newest bits. He's getting a little too lego-y at this point.

    Youtube's Optibotimus did a review on this set and he too was not very fond about the arm piece thing. I don't own a devastator but as far as the reviews by Optibotimus, the upgrade kits for these are fenomenal!! Turns the blocky devastator into more than meets the eye!

    I have all the sets besides the 09. I am awaiting it's delivery and was really stoked to finally have the complete set. UNTIL I heard all the problems with this set. I am going to have to find something to put in the stomach area as it looks wrong to me. I only hope that the problems people have been having with the arm accessory are not common to all but time will tell. Overall, I am very happy with the sets and cannot wait until they come out with more for Superion.

    Agreed. The ads for the 09 upgrade set were very deceptive.

    Yeah! Fuck CDMW-09!!

    That shoulder thing is a joke. The waist looks stupid now. Guess it's perfect for them to make a new chest piece...

    Yeah, I can't bring myself to buy this upgrade. The upper torso swivel is cool but leaves a gaping hole in the middle. But I do remember someone posting that CrazyDevy is making a new chest piece that will cover it up.

    Friends I love this thread !!!! Besides the purple mixer, the other two parts are dramatically useless !!!

    CrazyDevy, you know, I always support your creations but this time I don't know what to say.... and that hole in Devastator body is ugly !! :( 

    This is mine on the shelf...

    the problem i have seen with some of their kits is they dont think things through. they get an idea and make it but dont really try it out. they leave it up to the buyers be complain and be like what the heck. then they realize they need to make another part to fix one part or cover something else up.

    they should really have made all these pieces first and sold it as one big set. i think some of these are cool but for the quality and price and having to buy all these different sets suck.

    The head and legs are the best parts.

    Personally I am fine with my G1 Devastator being a brick. That is what G1 means to me. I did unfortunately spend over $100 on the ROTF legends Devastator parts and and disappointed. They should call it "Delicate Devastator" as CrazyDevy parts are fragile.

    Funny, I was watching TFTM '86 last night and noticed that Long Haul had a purple dumper when combined as Devastator... Would that open the door for one last set with maybe another accessory to fill up the chest cavity left by the previous kit?

    The upgrade kits for Legends Devy are VERY crappy btw. Not worth the money.

    I think I'm probably the only one that likes this set. :confused2 

    I mainly bought it for the purple cement mixer, but the other parts are really not that bad in my opinion.

    I think the arm extension was meant to be used only for display purposes and the waist piece, although it provides some functionality, does gives Devastator more height.

    I posed my Devastator with all CDMW-09 parts attached like this...

    [​IMG]

    By posing Devastator in this manner, the arm extension allows Devastator to hold his gun in a way that blocks the emptiness that is now present due to the waist piece being attached... Personally, it looks good in my opinion.

    I think if CrazyDevy does one more upgrade for Devastator, a new chest piece would definitely benefit it.

    I hope CrazyDevy decides to upgrade the chest piece by making it longer, more detailed and possibly throwing in some LED's (Yes, I'm a fan of LED's).

    Anways, I thought I would share my point of view.

    Knowing them, they'll probably sell a piece to cover up that hole they created.
