    Just checking to see what a good going rate now for the Classics Devastator that was exclusive to Walmart a little while back? MIB or MISB price... I see what Ebay is selling for but what is the Transfan(dom) community willing to pay?

    Im not sure, but if you have one, get it - and if not, find one. As soon as FP reveals that their next Xfire set is for Devastator expect the price to fly. If I was selling my Classics Dev I'd prolly try to get about $50 for it. Then again Im the guy that sold a complete Bludgeon for $20 when I knew it was worth $60 at the time. I'm weird like that.

    Edit: I just checked eBay - $149 for a MISB set? Are they effin serious?!? (12:24 AM)

    G-1 Superion & G-1 Bruticus are 5 man teams.

    while 1985 Devestator is a 6 man team.

    so if FP only does 2 new molds for the classics devestator. by all counts it'll still be inaccurate as far as the G-1 toy goes.

    there just doesn't seem a logical way to squeeze in a 6th new mold constructicon. un-less FP makes it a headmaster for the gestalt. basically it'll still have to have a robot mode,constructicon mode & headmaster mode. all this
    just seems too hard to pull off. other alternatives are making it a breast plate,back wings or waist clip.

    FP isn't making an upgrade for the Energon/Classics Devastator. :)

    I saw some fanart a few years back that added a steam-roller and something else to the G1 lineup. I remember that the steam-roller transformed into a robot (naturally), but it became a sledge-hammer melee weapon for gestalt form. I don't remember what the other one was tho...

    Energon / Classics Devastator is an overpriced pile of junk, imo, why'd anyone want one when the TFC Devastator is in the works?

    I saw one go for just over £80 MISB on eBay UK last week. Yeah, screw that.

    That is a fucking abortion of a figure IMO.

    Why do people think Classics Devastator is such trash? Pre-FP he was probably the best of the trio in combined form if you fan-moded him. He's far from terrible, even after Bruticus and Superion got their 3rd party upgrades.

    Sorry man I hate all Energon combiners in their original forms. They don't even have proper hands or feet...

    I have an issue with that as well but Devastator's a simple fix. The weapons that come with the earth mover limbs are perfect feet. As for hands, I use the cabs of the crane limbs.

    Really Superion's the biggest offender because his official combined form is horrendous. Bruticus was no slouch either.

    Ebay:
    A few people really dislike this set but they certainly cannot dispute the fact that people are willing to pay $75+ for this toy, meaning that it is high demand. Whether or not the toy is very good quality is moot point when the name of it is Devastator.
