    Read that Hasbro had no current plans for the legends Devi. Can someone at SDCC confirm or point to me where is says that? Can't view the video.

    This correct. Hasbro announced that it'll be a giftset stateside, at a Voyager pricpoint. This was announced a while ago.

    That's good to hear. Voyager price is very reasonable for seven legends class figures.

    Yes, that is correct. They were talking about doing a store exclusive gift set, in 2010, but have not worked out the details yet.

    Someone must have taken the "not worked out the details" as "the details don't work out, so we can't do it".

    Never heard about the Voyager pricepoint part. Sounds logical, but I never heard any talk of costs.

    I agree. Voyager Price is very good, but it might be a few dollars over that to account for something in the budget.

    Recent releases show that Legends tend to get repaints after repaints so I wouldn't worry about it. When parents don't want to spend much they buy kids Legend size TFs, I see this often. My guess is not only a Hasbro release, but also repaints, just a matter of time.

    a

    I hope I can get a Devastator, without paying a ton.

    Since no one would want an incomplete set, and no one would want to sell the central hub of the toy.
