    Nobody knows for sure, as far as I know.

    I imagine if Devastator or other potential upcoming reissues in Japan do well, we may see them eventually pop up as something like a TRU exclusive like Perceptor and the Insecticons did no too long ago.

    At this point, it's see what Takara does and either buy theirs or hope they see release in the U.S. I don't have much hope for a U.S. Devastator release because of the size and cost.

    Doubtful. Hasbro seems to have had more success with the classics/Generations motif. We may see sporadic G1 reissues (e.g. TRU insecticons & Perceptor) when it makes sense for hasbro to release them as part of an existing line. As an entire line like Takara's Encore line, it doesn't have the profitability in the US that it does in Japan.
