    I recently got a G2 Devastator (yellow version) and combined him into the big guy to be displayed but want to make sure the stress on Hook and Long Haul from the others as appendages won't cause any wear or breakage on any of the joints over time.
    Can you guys tell me whether it's safe to have him displayed as Devastator or better to just separate him out into the individual bots?
    Thanks.

    I only own the Knock off of Devi so my advice won;t be the best BUT....

    Most collection pictures I have seen have him in combined mode and in all my 16 years of collecting I never heard anyone bring up the issue.

    Hope that helps but wait until an actual owner comes to varify my words.

    Thanx

    Okay, thanks man.
    I've only started collecting G1 about a year ago so appreciate your experience with this.

    My G1 Devastator is diaplyed in combined mode; I have an Ikea Detolf cabinet that is just for combiners, and the fit better like that. He's been combined for a while, although he has been transformed a lot of times, and I can't see any stress marks anywhere. Hope that helps.

    Definitely helps; thanks.
    Looks like I can keep him combined for the foreseeable future.

    I have a G2 Devastator, and two of the G1 parts (which form the legs).

    The G2 Constructicon vehicles look brittle compared to the older G1s, the bright yellow plastic on the G2 almost looks a bit translucent. Can anyone please weigh in and tell me if you think the G2 Constructicons are really more fragile?
