    That photo presumably depicts an ooooooold prototype that is not representative of the final toy.

    EDIT: It's the 1985 Hasbro Transformers catalog Devastator prototype with black forearms, silver Mixmaster cement drum and lacking missiles on the hip connector piece.

    Just before anyone wonders whether they "changed Devastator" for Encore. The toy, and probably the photo too, predates the 1985 release.

    This may be sacrilege, but the more pics I see of Black Rodimus the more I want to re-sticker mine into a G2 Rodimus when he arrives.

    This. That alt mode (winnebago) is pure sex...and that is a term I usually don't use for TFs very often, if at all. Absolutely stunning.

    I'm even more sad that this mold is too expensive for me, than I was already because I can't afford the original Takara Rodimus. But this? It's 100x better!

    If it was cheaper, I would have bought both, but now? I'm double sad :( 

    I wish Classics Rodimus gets a new toy somewhere in the near future in the generations line or something and maybe then he'll get a Black Rodimus repaint in those colors as well.

    Please Takara and Hasbro, think of us poor fans! :D

    How can I possibly buy Black Rod AND TWO 3rd party Devastators? I am but one man.

    ...At least DotM toys aren't sucking money out of me.

    It looks like xibit stole the winnebago and pimped it. Pop your collar and let's go for a ride.

    The more pictures I see the more I like.. Still won't be getting him though, already have the takara release and buying this guy along with some of the others I want would really just bleed my bank account dry.
