    Ok so at first I called these "gizmo duck" transformers, but after seeing the movie this big fella was just out soaking up the Chinese nightlife.

    My question is, now after seeing the movie I want to get the figure since the sale is on, I have read a few reviews, but does anyone have anything else to say, is he a get or leave on shelf?

    Also, about the uni-wheel foot, is it that it will not suppport his weight with out the arms down and will just fold up, or just the balance issue, for instance if you put a stand around his base somehow like Chromia, could you pose the arms?

    Thanks alot

    I love this figure. I totally recommend. But yeah, you need to use his arms to support him but its not bad.

    It's not a wieght issue cuz he's light as a feather, and the joints are sturdy enough to hold him up. He's a great figure cuz he's one of those figures with "hidden modes," if you like that sort of thing. I'd recommend him.

    1. Get him. He's worth the money. More fun if you have some legends to pose him with.

    2. It's a balance issue. Some may have one wheel that may collapse easier (mine does) but both the wheels spin freely around his body, so either would work.

    Demolishor is fun. He get a bad rap, but he's really a good figure. I'd recommend him.

    He's cool and all 'cause he's different, but God knows I had a hell of a time transforming him because the instructions suck so much -_-

    When the ROTF toys first appeared on shelves, I thought to myself, "what a dumb looking figure." And even shortly after, I saw that they were shelf warmers (and still are.)

    However, after watching the film and seeing how bad ass he was to help open the film, I had to purchase him. Everything I thought prior to owning this figure, I now take back. He is actually one of my most favorite figures of the ROTF line.

    Would be cool if he was the same size as the Scavenger in Supreme Devastator combiner. I would love a bigger sized Demolisher! If you don't have him yet, get him. He's so worth it!

    He'd be an easier sell at a cheaper price point.

    Not something along the lines of him not being voyager sized, or having less plastic or anything like that, but just because he's so...much less than other voyagers. He just doesn't come across as a transformer that should cost $20 to me. Shame, because I really like his design. I'd consider getting him sometime, but there are far more voyagers and deluxes I'd rather put the money towards.

    He's grown on me too. Initially I was less than enthusiastic about him, but now I find him charming. I don't buy Legends class figures (aside from Classics Cosmos and the upcoming Devastator one), but Demolishor's at least tempted me to pick up a Legends Prime to display him with.

    As an added bonus, he's one of the few Movie figures (not counting the more younger kid-oriented FABs and that sort) that I'd feel completely comfortable giving to a kid. The transformation isn't very difficult and it'd be fun to roll Demolishor through a row of Autobots.

    If you see him and have the money, GET HIM. I haven't seen a TF with so many possible fan modes since Cybertron Supreme Starscream.

    Agreed.

    Legends Prime is an awesome little Legend anyway, but his scale with Demolisher and combining powers make him SUPER awesome.
