    Not an officially licensed piece, mind you, but still pretty cool. Has an LED light up eye display and the head can move side to side.

    Neat, but I'd rather have a replacement head for Classics Devastator (and Hardhead while we're at it)...

    That's interesting. I may pick that up if I get the extra cash.

    Not a fan of how it can't fold down for weapon mode (at least it doesn't look like it can). Also not digging the chin.

    Looks like an improvement to me. I'd buy it if I had (or cared for) a G1 Devy.

    See, now, this is the sort of thing that appeals to me so much more than a shrunken version of an existing toy.

    Looks cool, I like the ball joint neck, and light up eyes.

    I like my G1 Devastator the way he is and what is the point to have a ball joint head if the figure is un-poseable?

    Yeah... A pose-able head is definitely the least of G1 Devastator's worries.

    This one looks like it's photoshopped, not a final product sample...

    So you can pose him with his head looking the the left, or with his head looking the right. :confused:

    Looks to me to be the head and the purple connector piece. I'm thinking about getting it but I'll wait until it actually goes on sale and gets some reviews.

    For me, it's akin to the heads that came out for G1 Ratchet and Ironhide (probably where the idea came from). Yeah, it's kinda pointless on such a "stiff" figure like Devastator, but it looks nice and would be good just for display - probably what the designer has in mind.
