    I just saw my friend's 7 piece set Devastator (Legends)

    All the Constructicons transform into robots and they form Devastator!

    1. Scrapper
    2. Hightower
    3. Overload (a flatbed carrier)
    4. Rampage
    5. Long Haul
    6. Mixmaster
    7. Scavenger (same as Demolisher)

    It will be released in 2010. He got it through friends at Hasbro's kindness.

    It's inspired me to get a few more Legends (I own Mudflap and Skids to be in scale fighting my full-size Devastator).

    But the larger Transformers are to scale with the Legends Devastator:

    Optimus Prime
    JetFire
    Megatron
    Starscream
    The Fallen

    Possibly Ironhide (if they made a Legends version of him - I'm trying to find out).

    So I'm buying these guys (above) in anticipation of getting Devastator. The Autobots are harder to find.

    What do you guys think of this Constructicon set?

    The set is neat, the Takara version has been out for a while now. We have received news of the Hasbro gift set too. But your friend is lucky to receive it early. Maybe you can tell him to do a review and comparison with the Takara version. And a legends version of Ironhide is available. It's red and is called Enforcer Ironhide.

    What does your friend do anyways to have received it early?

    I think he has a small Transformers website of his own, but he runs the Transformers Q&A for ActionFigs.com (a general toy appreciation site) and is the lead moderator at SirStevesGuide (a Star Wars site where he does the Hasbro Star Wars Q&A as well).

    He lurks and probably posts here at TFW2005. I never asked him his screen name over here, but he's likely registered as he's a huge Transformers fan as well and TFW is the most complete, best site for TFs that I've found.

    I think he's doing so for one or a few websites. I'll ask him to post it over here as well. But it's very likely that Hasbro sent a staff member here a Devastator set since TFW is the go-to site for all things Transformers.

    Grrrr. It's cool that they're going back to a traditional color for Ironhide (G1) but I want him in black for the TopKick used in the movie.
