    Devastator was by far my favorite Transformer growing up it is now my favorite statue. Now of course this statue was not cheap but, it was totally worth it in my opinion regardless of what my wife thinks. OK while I really don't play with my classic Transformers at all I do enjoy this statue just as much if not more.

    It comes in five pieces plus the base of the statue, it goes together quite easy and stays together very well.

    I guess you could say it is to scale with the smaller palisades statues but who really knows. The detail is amazing in this thing to as you can see. The decepticon logo's on this piece have a reflective paint which is a nice touch.

    Here it is with some of the smaller statues megs, ravage and shockwave.

    And with MP Ultra Magnus for scale.

    All in all I would give this a 10 out of 10, because I am into statues. Does anyone else have this statue what do you think?

    Had no idea someone had posted pictures so recently, WOW. I know a majority of the fan base prefers transformers that transform and statues were overlooked. With so many company's make TF statues now it seems like most fans pass on them.

    Good snag, dude! As I stated in my thread about it (which "ams" so nicely provided a link to), it is an essential collectors piece worth every penny. The only problem I have with mine is that the feet don't nicely fit into the base slots the way they should. Other than that, this is one of my favorite TF purchases ever.

    Damn, I wish Palisades hadn't closed it's doors when it did. I was in line to do some great statues for them. Plus this is the last statue that they did that I didn't get for free ;)  I miss the swag.

    Nice pics TB77!

    I just wish they would have changed his face. I tried to get them to but by that time palisades was shutting down. This statue wasn't even released by Palisades. It was bought by another company and released. There was very little quality control.

    Like Ams said, there are many of us here on the TFW2005 boards that have this statue and it is simply fantastic! The minute I saw this statue in my local comic book shop, I just told my buddy to wrap it and up and charge my card. This doesn't happen to me often, but there are just certain pieces you have to have in your collection.

    Now, I just have to wait for Art Asylum's Omega Supreme to complete one heck of a battle scene.

    I was thinking the same thing, but I can't seem to find out how big this statue actually is anywhere. I'm also not too sure how happy I am with that pose. I *want* to like it so my Palisades Devastator can be displayed with something other than my G1 Dinobots, but I dunno, Omega squatting like that just isn't looking right.

    Yeah, I have not seen anything to say how tall the statue is either. My ultimate plan for Devastator and Omega is to have them in a battle scene with my SCF PVC collection. I can picture having one on either side with the seekers attacking omega from difference directions, thus the pose will seem justified.

    bbts has it listed between 45-50, so im guessing its only 6-8" guys.

    (their recent soundwave diorama was 75-80 and it was only 9")

    I was hoping this would be much taller if is just as small as the 6" palisades statue this will be a pass for me.

    Very nice statue, I remember seeing pics mockups or whatver they're called online and I thought the statue was gonna come out neon green, but it looks good like this
