    Ooh, he's pretty big.
    Can't wait to see some more pics of a (hopefully) correctly transformed botmode.
    Those wheel/tread/feet look mighty interesting by the way.

    I'm still not entirely convinced it can make a botmode by itself from those pics, will just have to wait and see.

    ...Wow, did NOT expect the threads to transform like that. That's some kickass engineering.

    Is that really the confirmed bot mode, or still unknown? Looks rather dissapointing if it is. The head mold looks pretty sweet though.

    I really dig what they've done with the treads, I've been wanting to see something like that for years. Or a transformation where the whole tread unit bends over a torso or whatever to make shoulders, like on Brawl but without splitting up.

    It's looking increasingly likley that this thing really doesn't have a bot mode though.

    I think it does have a botmode, actually. It's likely that a few parts are supposed to be flipped around to fill out the chest more. But it'll definately be an uncommon botmode, with the big arms and literal wheels for legs.

    He reminds me of that Getter-robot.

    Maybe I'll get one or two of the constructicons, if they keep the creative thinking like that!

    Bunch more pics have gone up. And... frontpaged!

    Loving the unconventional design, and the paint wash on some parts like the face looks great. Hope that stays for the final product.

    Hmm. I'm not really convinced that this will be the actual robot mode, if it has one. It just looks... unconvincing. Like the person who has this figure just tried to see if they could come up with a possible robot mode. Still, it'd be nice if all of Devastator's parts could become individual robots instead of using that non-transforming Power Rangers theme.

    I am really liking this figure a lot. I think the bot mode is the most unconventionial thing I've seen for any Constructicon. I would never expect that kind of engineering to take place in creating a figure like that. The head reminds me of an insectoid. I can't wait to see the rest of the Constructicons and how they will form into Devastator.

    A thought occurs...what if this combines with another constructicon to form one robot...with proper legs?
    And also recombines for the big 7 part combiner.

    even in these new images it still looks like theres a big piece missing

    A combiner that combines again is no more outlandish that a headmaster headmaster (ala fortmax)

    Well that sucks. Either it doesn't have a robot mode, or its bot mode is pathetic. And if it has no bot mode, then that head is Devastator's head, which would be lame.
    So far looking like the Constructicons aren't going to be that big of a deal.
    At least the vehicle mode is cool...

    I'm a little disappointed as it looks like the individual robot mode is a bit of an after thought. Devastator may drop off my want list if the rest of the constructicons are like this.

    I like the bot mode, even if it looks as though his innards are missing.

    Wow, this looks like crap!!! I'll have to pass on this one and maybe Devastator all together.
