    Has there been any news about a TakaraTomy Supreme Devastator? Usually, Takara does toys of movie TFs, but they're usually different from the American release in some way.
    Since the American Supreme Devastator sucks, I was wondering if anyone has heard any rumours about a Takara Supreme Devs?

    i bet it's gonna be just a straight up repackage with a few different paint apps, so don't expect much better. the pics on hlj are just the stock photos

    Unless they make a deluxe/voyager version of the legends class Devastator, I really dont care what they do. -- in terms of Devastator anyway

    If they have any respect, they won't release the stupid thing at all.

    The Legends Devastator seems to have very simple conversions so I think it will make a good FAB Devastator also by just increasing the size and it will be easy for the kids to convert and combine.

    It would almost be worth it if they painted the red details on his face.

    Ebay:
    Takara could add chrome. It does cost over $50 more than in the U.S.

    Takara will pee on it. After they do, it will have transformable individual components, better paint apps, and pukes solid gold as a gimmick.

    you can't paint away fail. All the paint apps in the world aren't going to hide that.

    Its true, Classics Prime happened after a Takara employee peed on a left over Superlink Fatimus.

    I think that if they do release him, and they probably will, that it'll have very few differences to it, if any at all. So far, there seems to be very little difference between Hasbro's RotF figures and Takara's.

    No, no, no... you've translated it all wrong. Takara's Transformers are partly inherently superior because they are without gimmick. Actually Takara's Supreme Devastator doesn't just add 3rd modes for individual robots, but a fourth modes where they transform into solid gold.

    6 Contruction vehicles
    ...change...
    6 Robots
    ...merge...
    Devastator
    ...finish...
    Solid Gold

    However the 4th solid gold mode is a bit of a throw back to G1 Sixshot, they don't give you instructions you have to figure out the transformation into solid gold from clues on the box.

    Maybe they'll add chrome balls to the toy to make it a little more screen accurate than the Hasbro version.
