    ... cause i do, despite all the hate going around for it-just wish they had used all 7 Constructicons, instead of just 6. (actually, i really wish they had made him perfect, with bot, alt, and combiner modes, but for what it is, it aint half bad)

    We've had threads...

    I like it, just not really $100 bucks like it, for what it is, being that it can't separate into individual bots. But oh well...

    I love it. He is the best thing to come out from Hasbro. Super detailed and movie accurate. I love that they didn't waste their time on individual bot modes. Who really needs that anyway?

    There are a ton of threads like this already... We most definitely do NOT need another one. Sorry Torque.

    So far out of 100 only 15 people like it. Thats pretty bad IMO.

    I don't necessarily dislike it...I just do not see it as a figure that warrants my spending $100 on it.

    I love it, I can't wait to own it. Out of all the Movie toys I know about so far, only Sideswipe, The Fallen, and possibly Rampage are higher on my "YAY!" list.

    I might get it...if it turns out that the individual Constructicons can't combine. Even then, it's unlikely due to the price tag (which is gonna be worse for Australia, I just KNOW it) and the fact that it's only vehicle-to-combiner part, which takes most of the fun out of a combiner toy.

    Have you heard something Different on the individual Constructicons? I thought Hasbro said at the toy fair that they wouldn't combine hence the uproar that has been going on.

    I don't like the toy at all.

    I'll only be getting it if I can find it on clearance, or when people are selling it in the aftermarket for next to nothing.

    Musta missed that bit. Though to be honest, all I was interested about from Toy Fair was the images and that's it.

    I'll repeat myself.

    I like it, but the price is just impossible for me right now.

    strangely i like it.

    though i do too, wish it had bot modes, but, meh, i was going to keep it in combiner bot mode anyways.

    as i am sure most of you were going to do, as well.

    besides we all know combiner indiviual bot modes normally SUCK anyways.

    they sucked in g1, *for the most part, at least compared to other bots at that time* most people only bought them TOO form the super robots. even then, they did not hold together well at all.

    so, i will give this a try, if it is at least fun to play with, AND if it holds together better then the regular ones, then i will like it, and welcome any other combiner bots like this, BUT if it still suffers from the same flaws of the other combiners, *falling apart easily for one* then no, i will be saying it is NOT the way to go, only scarfice bot modes so it can be held together better please!

    I think one of my biggest problems (outside of the prospect of having to pay to get the Constructicons AND Devastator..separate) is that, this thing is gonna run $100. The design is fine, but it just doesn't LOOK like something that costs $100. I got my MP Megatron for $90. He looks like he would cost $100. You would think in sacrificing robot modes that the end result of that would really benefit the figure more than it seems to have. I just think that at $100 they could have found some way to work in effective robot modes as well.

    I'm still kinda confused about Devastator... so I don't really have an opinion yet.

    Is this right?:

    There's going to be the set of 7 Constructicons that transform into vehicle mode but DON'T combine with each other and a bigger Devastator that will just be the pieces you put together?

    I made a thread like this a while back. It didn't last very long. ;) 
    I like the Devastator toy a lot, but the only thing thats keeping me from a 100% definate buy is the pricepoint.

    I hope the articulation and the.... moving light up mouth with sound effects live up to the price.

    I'm buying it for completionist sake though. So its bought on sight.

    Did we really need yet ANOTHER thread about Devastator?:sly2: 


    Anyway no, I don't like him one bit, which is a GOOD thing seeing as how I won't be tempted to buy him now.
