    Let's see:

    - If the mini figures could transform.
    -If the mouth could actually suck up stuff

    Oh god, I wouldn't want the mouth to suck anything up, we don't want another Harry Potter vibrating broom on our hands.

    Lmao.

    Oh man, the things perverted TF fans would be putting in Dev's Hoover-Mouth really gave me the giggles.

    That is a bad idea. A very, very bad idea.

    They could take it and smash it with a hammer into tiny little pieces then melt it down, pour it into new molds that actually transform, and sell us all the great product we thought we were going to get. That is one thing that would make this POS better. Sorry, I'm still a little angry about the whole thing. Anyone got a better idea. Lol

    Heheheh.

    Hmm...on a more serious note, maybe if it walked on its own, a la G1 Omega Supreme and Trypticon? The transforming vehicles-to-robot thing is a given. I can do without the lights and sounds gimmicks, though I can understand them being there for kids so it's not a big deal. Adding lights and sounds to a motor that makes it move might make it slightly less lame.

    I want a downsized one, that costs max $30 bucks, for us cheapass folks who don't want to spend $100 for a Voltron.

    You know what's funny. Volton and power rangers, always had simplier transformations than transformers, yet the robot mode always had less mobility.

    Just think, how many power rangers megazords actually had moveable legs ?


    THAT'S JUST HILARIOUS MAN.

    "oh, let's make it like a megazord, and triple the price"

    way to go Hasbro.

    For the fans.....

    I dont see why Hasbro cant make an accessory set to combine ROTF Constructicons instead of paying out a small fortune for both sets.I know the company likes to make money,but it would still be cool to see.

    Either lower the price to 30 if you're not going to have any robot modes, or add robot modes and STILL lower the price.

    Lower the price (to at least what previous Supremes cost) and paint areas of the face red to match his movie depiction.

    Yesterday, I got Superion for just $30.
    It has 5 jets and each can transform into a robot.
    The Supreme Devastator is overpriced.
    The Supreme Devastator is also missing Overload.

    As it is now, there is no way for me to justify spending $100 on a toy that will always feel incomplete. If he were $30-$40 I would at least get him just to have a big Devy. All $100 tells me is he is going to be be loaded with useless sounds and gimmicks that I could care less about.

    dont the little guys still have vehicle mode? idk what to do about this one. i guess we'll have to see how he pans out in the movie. i only collect ones that are in the movie.....if the individual bots take up most of the time then ill get them. if the bog ones does, then ill get him...its so tough to get the stuff i want with hasbro being dooshy about everything..like a repainted ultimate bumblebee which should be the alliance BB in ultimate size

    all they need to do is sell each piece seperatly (all 7) and make them able to merge....7 toys at the price of 12 dollars each = 84 dollars.... they would actually make more profit doing it this way

    no money spent on manufacturing $100 devestator

    people will be more likely to buy all 7 parts for 12 dollars each over an extended period than a 100 dollar toy all at once

    those who dont buy all of the pieces might just chalk it up and buy the ones they dont like just for the sake of being able to make them combine

    hasbro is stupid

    They should just sell a cheap $30 Devastator set made up of 7 scouts. They can also sell a bigger set made of 7 deluxe.
