    I thought that the NBK ones were knock-offs Gravity Builder, I was searching for KOs of Giant 61. However, I'll buy the NBKs too, since they're around 10€ at piece.

    They are. I just misunderstood Scourgatron's original post :p . He mentioned Gravity Builder for $200 and the knock-off for $100 and then you replied. I assumed the KO being referred to was NBK's :) .

    Classics maybe. More stand alone, I think.

    i actually like CW's head. I just don't like the lack of articulation in the neck. The face sculpt is pretty on point, though.

    Just ordered myself Bulldozer (Scrapper?) from hzj401 on eBay.

    For a little under £12 shipped it was too good to hold off any longer.

    Bonecrusher is by far the best of the 3 released so far at least one more is out this month though. (perhaps 2 if you count the clear Bulldozer release).

    I'd not rule out the other manufaturer making a green one too though.

    Me too: I got Bulldozer, Excavator and Loader. I saw that the cement mixer is also available, but I'll wait for now.

    Can't argue that fact, but i guess it's purpose or intent is different than the others. From most accounts it seems like he's made more to play with (by kids) than display and is more budget friendly. At least that's my impression from reviews I've seen of the various devys

    Depends on your definition of Masterpiece really. As Devestator they sit right in with my Masterpieces (I am happy with his size, I found toyworlds too big for my taste and display)
    As individual bots they deviate away from their G1 look quite a bit. As mine will always be in Devy mode I'm happy but can see why others would not be.

    Just to weigh in on whether these are CHUG or MP:

    They are 16$ each & look better than HasTak’s.

    That’s my official opinion.

    Whether they end up being CHUG or MP, you cannot go wrong for the price.

    "CHUG" is such a loosey goosey concept, they certainly fit there, G1-Inspired Styling with G1-esque alt modes, but total disregard for matching 1:1 with any element of the G1 figures other than general colors and profile. Scale is ALL over the place in CHUG so, if you mean size in particular...then one can only shrug and see what you feel works.

    MP certainly doesn't fit the bill here...Alt modes, robot modes, none of it matches G1 styling at all (let alone Animation-Specific per current MP)...so other than "largeish" and "well articulated"..nothing MP'y going on.

    But the toy police won't arrest you no matter which shelf you put them on...so have fun. These are amazing toys for the price. Not sure how the originals are priced, but I wouldn't pay more than double for these guys...and I expect the real ones are more like 3x-5x.

    What megatron is that?

    Also anyone have a link for mixmaster from aliexpress? I can't seem to find it on that site. I ordered bonecrusher, and I have high hopes. How long did it take to get to you with seller preferred shipping?
