    Cool, I love that they're doing these designer interviews, hope that Hasbro would follow suit.

    My guess is no reissue Devastator for whatever reason beause this is the perfect time to release one but instead we receive Bruticus.

    Do we know if Bruticus has die-cast chests? Or is it the all plastic version?

    Need to pic up that Encore Cassette set and the one that was previously released to go with my Music Label Soundwave (too bad they didn't make it so he could hold them like they did with the upcoming Device Label Blaster).

    it's not a TOTAL impossibility; they've put in some interesting perspective from the design team on stuff like design/mold feature choices and color concepts -- as with the TFU 2.0 wave 1 figures, and the TFTM Walmart exclusives [the Grindcore/Divebomb/Big Daddy/Jolt wave, as well as the Fracture/Crankcase/Breakaway wave.

    An MP3 player is much more complex than a USB hub.
