Devastator idea; multi-con?? Not really a new idea, so much as just stuff Hasbro has already done applied in a new way. We know that the chances that Hasbro might do any new gestalts is pretty much slim to none right now, so perhaps heres a way they could get around some of the difficulties. Remember the Duocons? Two vehicles which attach to eachother in order in order to form one larger robot; the idea is along those lines, but with more than just two vehicles. Closest thing I can think of in this area would be Armada Tidalwave- the 3 vehicles of the dark fleet combine to form one gigantic TF. What if this idea were applied to Devastator? Say, 5-6 construction vehicles, sold as one figure, that comprise one giant robot (Devastator). The compromise would, unfortunately, be losing the existence of robot modes for the individual Constructicons. However, at their expense, they would have a lot more room to get the vehicle and combined form right, resulting in a larger, sturdier, and more solid Devastator figure. The only transforming the vehicles would have to be designed for would be to form their respective body parts, allowing for better articulation in combined form, easier to conceal hands, head, etc. in vehicle mode, and an overall more cohesive look. Again, if you look at Armada Tidal wave (who was only 3 components, and designed around merging with A. Megs) you'll see what a large, solid looking figure they can come up with using this kind of compromise. If you stand Tidalwave next to, say, the Energon combiners, he towers over them (any of the G1 combiners, save Predaking, too for that matter). Again, the sticky point would be the loss of the individual robots in order to make a more cost-effective Devy. Perhaps they could do a few individual, non-transforming Constructions too, in which this Devastator multi-con (duocon = 2 vehicles, multicon = multiple??) could work for, perhaps as extra equipment, with his giant robot mode their ultimate weapon?? Anyways, let me know what you think. Aside from Devy, I don't think this idea would work too well on other gestalts: with construction vehicles you have moving parts (shovel arms, front end loader, crane arm, etc.) but you wouldn have this so much with cars or jets. Might work really well with the monster-like combiners though- Terrorcons, Monstructor, Seacons, as they all have arms and faces and such in their monster modes.
