    I think it would be cooler if Devastator was produced in the original Diaclone color scheme.

    Already have both originals and I bet Hasbro won't like the boxes.

    Don't care. If they made new molds of the Constructicons so the bots had more articulation, then I'd be excited. Of course it would probably cost a fortune but hey thats Hasbro.

    Damn, they're still making new stuff, huh? I was hoping that without Ebay the counterfeit G1 makers would give up. Oh well. At least these aren't as easy to mistake for the originals as the green ones.

    meh, don't think they are even worth the price, considering that g2 devastator doesn't sell for that much money, heck, i can pick a loose one up, complete for $50, lol i can see the orange one being worth it, but i can't see the yellow one being lol.

    Awesome! The Green ones were really nice quality, so I can't imagine these will be any worse -- sign me up for an Orange set! And as a bonus, I get a nice box to put my extra G1 Green set in... Yoy! :drool: 

    ...Take THAT, ebay sellers! You shan't have my arm OR my leg for Orange Devy! :scalper

    Hasbro? Quality testing? Does not compute.

    With all these G1 Devastator KOs I am surprised that they have not released a clear G1 Devastator KO.

    Part way in between really.

    Yeah, I'm with you MG. More boxes to blend in with real product though.

    Does anyone know which KO/bootleg company is doing these? As they both did a 'Devastator' gift set before.

    These are being done by Zhong Jin, the company that does most of the counterfeits. You can tell because they used Zhong Jin's version of the Devastator box. The box of the one done by Kiditoys (the counterfeit Metroplex maker) looks different.
