    I don't think that's a really solid leg as much as it is a really movie-innacurate FOOT.

    Yeah, I'm still not convinced these guys don't combine. I think Hasbro still has something up their sleeve.

    Yeah, plus you forget that there's scale issues and weight problems.


    Though this gives hope that if someone can make solid enough connectors, maybe with support a custom Devs could be done.

    I think the whole one leg is a voyager the other a deluxe puts a BIG hurt on that.

    But Long Haul is a small Voyager so it still could work

    Still think its a shame they gave some of these constructicons a third mode but the third mode isn't a limb for Devestator...

    Actually, Long Haul is a pretty good size voyager, and Rampage is a pretty small deluxe. The FAB Long Haul would be a better fit.

    They won't combine.

    All these fan modes can get hopes pretty far up, though. :(

    same here. I'm sure the design team wanted to do it right.

    I have a wacky conspiracy theory that combination may be possible, but not advertised because Devastator would've had problems passing the drop test.

    I can't se Hasbro releasing a proper Devastator. I think they would have done it instead of the Devastator we are getting.

    If anything, I can see Takara and/or FP releasing something.

    You should just stop getting your hopes up. It's not going to work,so either buy the Devastator toy or just live with having seperate Constructicons.
    Believe me,I would want it to work as much as the next guy,but you can't will it into existance.

    Hopes are definitely not up, I'm just not totally convinced yet. Until we see Overload, it's still up in the air. His flatbed might just be the frame and connectors we need, complete with face.

    We just don't know yet.

    Or you could get the Legends Class Devastator Takara is making and have individual transforming Constructicons who merge into Devastator.

    Of course your compromise there is that they are much smaller than the other TFs - but if the Legends are like the first Movie, then most of the cast will probably come out as Legends anyway.

    On another note.. Rampage's posability is terrible. I tried everything with this guy.. doesn't quite work out >.< Bloody hard transformation too.
