    We're right in the middle of a ridiculous blizzard (its Spring Break, why couldn't it happen DURING SCHOOL?!).

    I've been trying to nab these guys since 2004 when they came out, my local KB closed down right when they hit retail (got my Protectobots from the Sears right next door later on though) and I could never find them. When I moved out here I was able to get the Railbots and Aerialbots from Kickback's KB Outlet store.

    Cue ebay back in 2005, I've been battling on and off for some of these for the last 4 years, and I FINALLY won an auction this past weekend (about $35ish after shipping), and sure enough the mail man comes out the white out and hands me the package.

    Yeah, it isn't some big rare Euro or Japanese G1 figure, or some minty fresh sealed G1 figure that's survived 25 years, but everybody has something they're after, right?

    Wow, sorry for the noob question, but is that the original one? or a KO? I can never tell. But since the OP says it only cost $35 delivered, i'd have to assume KO. Or am i wrong?

    Its the Transformers Universe Micromaster (Series 2) Devastator. KB Toys exclusive from back like 2004ish if I remember right. It is a repaint of the Japanese Six Builder combiner.

    They're real, It's the KB exclusives I believe.

    Congrats on finally getting you a little Dev

    Congrats, feels good to finally get something you've been hunting fora while. I've been looking for these on and off for quite some time also, seems like every time I find em something comes up to keep me from getting them. Defensor also.

    Gotcha. I forgot to mention congrats too. It looks super sweet. I'd love to have one too. But sounds like they're hard to find.

    I've had him for a while now. Got the reprolabels stickers to spruce him up a bit. Nice find!

    Congradulations! I know that you must feel EXTREMELY happy that you have him. I felt the same way when I got ALL 6 for my birthday in 04. Anyway, have fun with him!
