    Shockwave transforms. It's a really simple transformation, but he does transform.

    I have filmed and am uploading the remaining 4 individuals of green shadow, I grabbed my other 4 devestators for comparisons of the parts. Navvy is finished, about half hour to bulldozer

    That is a great looking piece. I never realized he was that much smaller than Constructor. You obviously collect all the Devestator so I guess my only real question is in your opinion, is he worth the price point?

    That's a tough one, I'd say the clear version is due to its limited nature and being a very unique and beautiful piece, I doubt I'd pay that much for the normal version. It really comes down to how much money you have to spare. Constructor, especially the v2 giftset, is a far better deal for the money, but I love all my devastators (even the step child Perseus), and have a rather large amount of disposable income right now in my life. I really do like all the engineering that has been done since Warbo rebranded to GT (and TFM), they have made some very fun and unique transformations that are very solid, and the TFM figures are what made me finally cave and grab a gravity builder, and even be debating getting computron to be caught up on the company.

    I definitely agree that Constructor is the best option at the moment and definitely the best option out there at this time. I haven't gotten my definitive Devestator yet,I like the TW offering but I think I want to wait to see what Fans Toys does with their offering. I'd just like something a little closer to G1 myself.
    It's awesome that you've been able to put together the collection that you have. I think Green Shadow looks amazing but at this point,I'm going to wait and see if I can find one at a lower price. I'd live to have one just because it is such a unique piece. A hundred bucks less and I wouldn't have hesitated. Once FT shows their offering I'll get a Devy of my own. If I can find one hopefully at a lower price I'd definitely like to get him but I'll live without it if need be. I'm glad you were able to get this guy and add him to your amazing Devestator collection and thanks for the feedback. The reviews were cool to see as well.

    Thank you, they were definitely a step outside my comfort zone at the start. If FT does theirs I'll do a captain planet video of the other 5 summoning him (Perseus is Heart, no questions asked) once he's out.

    Hmmm... I think the alternate head for Bulldozer would make a decent head for an IDW Scoop custom with a little painting and/or sculpting:

    See?

    (GT Scraper already resembles Scoop's alt mode more than he does G1 Scrapper's.

    I suppose at this point it's a bit late to try to talk Generation Toy into doing a new head and chest for a more proper Constructicon Scoop....)

    for those saying that contructor is the best buy for money is that bcuz of his size? bcuz imho he's the worst buy bcuz he's just to big for my collection GT and MT imho are the best made Devy's and are the ones worth the money, i'm still holding out weakly for a yellow GT repaint or maybe any other color except green lol

    Anyone have the contact info for generation toy? I know they have a facebook page but it doesn't look like it has been used for awhile. TIA.

    That, the fact that people seem to dig the partsforming hips and thighs, and the fact that he's more G1. Cheaper, too, if you get the V2 gift set. Personally, though, I prefer GB. I like their transformations and their more realistic alt modes, I think four of the six look more dynamic (even if they are less G1), and I think the combined mode blows Constructor out of the water.

    Well, I don't think it's so much the size for its own sake as much as the fact that Constructor is basically a Masterpiece scale Devastator. So it's kind of in a category of its own.
