    what? voyager? didnt know that. its a shame imo his bot mode is so lacking. i wish they could have done something more with his hand, like separate fingers, but if youre right about him being an arm, that would make sense to have them the way they are.

    its a shame you cant really keep him in bot mode and have him stand. the motorcycle thing is neat but i would assume most will have him combined with the rest for dev.

    You have 3!!!

    I like this guy's non humaniod appearance. When I get him, I will probably leave the top wheel folded back.

    NICE!

    Good review, Mike.
    I really like the vehicle mode, with all the detailing and the Mech Alive gimmick.
    The robot mode has grown on me, especially with how he looked in the trailer, but I do think he could have had the shovel turn into hands/claws.
    He seems kind of simplistic, but since the focus is on the vehicle mode and the combination, that's not a big deal.
    I can't wait to see the other Constructicons.

    Very awesome. I can see how that would be an arm.

    Nice review Peaugh, really looking forward to Devastator. I hope his components keep a good balance between inhuman humanoid robot modes, so that it doesn't get old really fast. I'm really liking Scavengehammer so far, though.

    PEOPLE, GET A CLUE!!! this is not A combining mold.

    There is going to be 2 sets of CONSTRUCTICON TOYS

    One will be Vehicles that Combine and the others will be Seperate robots that transform into Vehicles.

    come on folks, your smarter than this. :D 

    And the Bot mode still looks mis-transformed as some other have also said.

    Not bad at all. I sure hope that despite what some say, Hasbro takes the risk of making a gigantic gestault.

    My guess is that he will be both left and right arms and the head of Devastator kind of like Buildking for RID (well the arm part at least). I would rather this be just one arm BTW, but I think that would be asking to much.

    Wait a sec, Do you have some inside info?

    Or is this based on a theory of yours?

    There seems to be a little articulation at the end of the Shovel. Does it actually move?

    It was clearly stated that this rumor was debunked.

    I was surprised to hear this thing is a voyager class. Still, it's one of the smallest voyagers I have ever seen.

    I really don't see how they could possibly make that a part of Devastator. From photos I have seen, I would have to say that the cab rests about 3 stories high, or maybe more. a cement truck is maybe one and a half stories high. the rest of the devastator figures are going to be uber small, if they exist, which I'm sure they do.

    these kind of makes me think that the power shovel won't be to scale with the rest of his parts. which leaves me to believe that Devastator won't be in the movie, but will be available as a toy.


    this is all assuming that this figure is part of the Devastator toy.
