    VIDEO REVIEW HERE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnrTVh00vrY

    You've seen this guy before Everyone. After I sold this Devastator a few months ago, the Buyer ran into some issues with it and I wasn't able to satisfy the customer's wishes to repair the connection joint with Mixmaster so upon his request, I bought this guy back.

    I have since made some substantial upgrades that I am very happy with.

    THE UPGRADES: Not only did I completely re-do Mixmaster's connection joint so that now it is far more durable then before, I have also decided to re-fortify 'ALL' of Devastator's joints as well as other connection areas. I have brought things in tighter and made them cleaner.

    Long Haul now has a removable dump bed which can also rotate 360 degrees, Hook's crane is now removable and better spaced, Devy's head is better articulated, Hook now rests cleanly and tightly against Long Haul, and I have made Devy's chest plate permanent. I have also modded Devastator's legs so he can now stand up straight as well.

    THE BIG UPGRADE: I decided to spruce this guy up as well. I gave Devastator a 'cleaner' and more vibrant airbrushed paint job that resembles more of a G1 cartoony look. I also brought out more details in his overall paint apps and brightened up his visor as well.

    The outcome is now an incredibly sturdy Devastator with LOTS of tight (ratchet-style) articulation, and a fun and vibrant cartoony paint job. I re-present DEVASTATOR!!

    He'll be up on Ebay pretty soon...

    Thanks!

    I used a plastic model firetruck for the cab and the mixer came from a Matchbox cement truck. I like the cleaner paint apps myself actually :) 

    Thank you!

    Well, I wish I would've known what I know now so that when I built this and painted it back then it would've been done like this now. I know I'll miss it when it's sold again but I do have another I finished building a couple weeks ago :D 

    Thanks guys! Frank, you never know bud!

    Thanks Juan, we will have to wait and see!
