    Just out of curiosity, how many size classes/sub-lines do you think Devastator will show up in?

    The obvious one is the $100 gift set.

    Robot Heroes will have a "cute" or "Super Deformed" version... And there'll be a "Mega Power Bots" version.

    But what about a FAB? Or a Robot Replica? How likely would you say those are? Maybe even a deluxe/voyager version? Or a Legends?

    I don't know what the FAB or Deluxe/Voyager would transform into, but... that didn't stop them from making up alt. modes for Ravage or Scorponok, (or The Fallen for that matter).

    I think it'd be rather annoying for the only version of him to be basically a giant, absurdly expensive statue.*

    He's too cool of a character not to be available in a less expensive form.


    * - The lack of proper separation/transformation is excusable for something that's just over 10 bucks, like a robot replica... but for $100+ Devastator's parts should all have individual bot modes. Period.

    I'm waiting for them to hopefully make a trash disposal unite that munches up debris into smaller pellets that a hamster could eat with no problem.

    Initially i am quite disappointed about Devastator vehicles cant be transformed into individual bots.... But when i think about it, how are they gonna design the MiXmaster, into a cement mixer, mixmaster robot and Devastator turbine mouth.... Maybe is not easy.....

    Don't they usually create the toys first? It seems like they do it that way for the Animated series.

    Nope. For the Animated series they work together, doign concepts, then revising, then additional revising so that these cartoons can be made into accurate toys.

    With the movie it's similar, but ultimately they must go with what looks best on screen. Concepts, then designing them so they can make more accurate toys, but the last thing they want to do is sacrifice how they look on the screen for the toys.

    Ordinarily this true. However, as Mach pointed out, the movies are different entities. This is the reason why the Leader Megatron for RotF looks so unlike the final CGI.

    I'm hoping they'll do a combining version made up of legends class constructicons. They already have combining Legends Optimus and Jetfire, so I think that puts it somewhat within the realms of possibility.

    I know it'd be shit, but I don't care.

    We will probably only get the one transforming Devastator in the $100 gift box.

    I'm hoping a small KO version of it shows up eventually.

    I'll just wait till the $100 Devastator goes in clearance. (Which it no doubt will at some point)
    I mean, it looks like an okay toy, but WAAAAAAAY to pricey.

    I'd like a voyager Devy with smaller vehicles that basically does what the $100 one does, seriously doubt it'll happen though.

    ...That's not why, megatron and the render have the same design, it's just the execution of the figure that makes it differ so much.
    They are both the same design.
