    Great video! Upgrade set is cool - would have liked to see some bent knee poses, but it's pretty cool. I don't have g1 devs, just a knock off, but maybe in the future.. Pretty expensive - they should group them all together and make it cheaper

    I forgot to ask earlier but could you post some action shots of Devastator? It seems you had a real hard time balancing him and that is kind of a turn off. Mixmaster/Scrapper aren't the greatest of feet and it looks like they counteract the greatness of the waist.

    Total cost...shipped was 95 dollars. I ordered directly from Crazydevy.com. BBTS has them up on their site and if i got the sets from them i would have paid 104 dollars..BEFORE shipping.

    What sort of action shots would you like? I can try doing some for you. Mixmaster isn't bad...Scrapper is the biggest problem. Also i kept trying to stand him with his legs straight up and down. If you angle them outward from the hip, he stands better. Also...bending the knees backwards helps a tad as well.

    Can the knees bend all the way, to where you can have him in a sitting position?

    100 bucks for that? both crossfire 2 sets combined are only $90. But I do agree it does make Dev's look much better and they did do a awesome job making it.

    When I watched the video I totally wanted that set, but then I heard the price and now I just don't know if I can justify paying that much for one of my least favorite combiners. Now maybe if it was Predaking or Bruticus then I may have to sell a kidney for it.

    Wow, that looks great!!!! Now how many different tf lines did it take to get this for Devastator?? Too bad, too late. Great review, great new look but I am still waiting for a new, retooled look for Devastator that is more geared to the G1 line.

    Here are a few pictures i took. Please forgive the quality, i took them with my iPhone...which eh...doesnt' take the best of picturs

    This picture displays the strength of the fists inside the original G1 forarms. They're stiff enough that the gun won rotate out of whatever position you choose to have it displayed (notice the cod piece is the proper position....rightside up)
    [​IMG]

    Here he is in a sort of, walking pose. Notice now the cod piece is upside down. I don't think it effects the overall look too much. But to get the thighs to go that far forward, the cod piece needs to be reversed to this position
    [​IMG]

    Just a "fun" picture
    [​IMG]

    A kneeling pose....pretending Devastator is screaming "WHY GOD??? WHYYYYY???"
    [​IMG]

    This one, i wanted to have fun with it...but also show the stability of his legs once you get them in a goo position

    Not worth $100, besides, if they ever do sets in G2 colors of Orange and Yellow I'd be lookiing at a $300 upgrade. Pass. If a combo set for about $50 comes about I may be interested.

    P.S. Very good review. :D

    Damn you and your enticing video. I had already pre-ordered the recolored legs as the original version was sold out, now you convinced me to drop the $100 to upgrade what is my all-time favorite combiner. Damn you and your persuasive video skills!!!

    This kit does not seem to let Devy stand still unless the legs are split further apart.... or have to bend the left knee back... Definitely these kits are expensive for such accessories...
