    I wish, but at the MP level, it would probably be too expensive (something like 300+).

    I doubt it, as it would effectively require 6 Masterpiece Constructicons. I think a real Universe/Classics (not a redeco) Devastator with 6 individually sold Constructicons is much more likely, though the chance of this happening is still slim at best.

    I don't really see it ever being bigger than Predaking though. You get too big and it's too heavy to structually support without turning it into a big brick like Scorponok or Fort Max.

    I say make 6 individual Voyager Constructicons that have all the parts to merge into Devestators, thats a gaurentee of $120 bucks per customer to has/tak

    I think they might. It's the most iconic combiner and deserving of an upgrade. I'd still like to see the other 4 Dinobots become MP though. Hell, Takara should just promote the MP and Encore Lines as the main lines. Drop all other crap.

    If we did get one, I'm thinking it would be the largest of all MP's. Not like Fortress Maximus size but comparable to most of the MP's, but just emphasizing detail, quality and proportion to each individual Constructicon.

    I'd buy it but I highly doubt we'll ever see one.

    Some would, but I doubt enough would to make it financially feasible. I would love to see it, and I think if they released it as a set and also individually, and made the set around $200, it would be a great deal. You wouldn't get it perfectly proportioned though, but if you made the combined status about that of the Max's then it would work well enough. Most people wouldn't/don't have room for anything bigger than a max anyway.

    Perhaps if the upcoming movie Devastator sells well (which, unless they hash it up badly, is bound to), then the powers that be will consider it.

    Otherwise I'd be up for an Encore version (which again may happen if the Movie figure sells well).

    don't see it ever happening.

    we're getting a new devastator in the movie line, that's probably gonna be really big. good enough for me.

    We need them to be a lot bigger than scout class though, maybe 5 voyagers and an ultra or 6 voyagers.

    We just need new, decent combiners. period.

    I don't know if I would be willing to buy a 20" tall Devastator figure. That seems just a tad too big to me. And if they did it any smaller it would be tough for them to warrant putting it in the MP line instead of the Uni2.0 line.
