    It's funny how the CW Machinima purposely made Devastator the same size as Victorion, Computron, and Menasor. Pretty much conceding that two different combiner sizes in the same line makes no sense.

    If Devastator is supposed to be that big... why even be afraid of Halonix Maximus :lol

    I didn't know it off the top of my head... I just typed "Giant Autobot Heavy Metal War" on Google :lol .

    I like how his torso has the Sky Reign/Lynxmaster color scheme going lol.

    No. Legend class toys work the same as they did during TR. They can be ridden/piloted by the Prime Masters, see here.

    That's disappointing. It makes Slash so much less worth getting unless you just want a complete Dinobot set.

    I am going to make a "Beta" team for her. A G1-ified movie Scorn, Paddles, and maybe a Dimetrodon and an Anklysaurus to round them out.

    Same. I think he would be a fun custom to do, or if Third Party comes up with an upgrade kit for Paddles

    Yea they made it from their sludge, it's a nice figure, decent remolding, huge double cannons and it comes with clear swords for their swoop. Glad I've got all 6 of their dinos

    They so obviously wanted to call it Volcanus and someone sensibly stepped in and went "Uhhh...."

    We will find a way to fan-combine them, you know we will! Watch a 3D printed connector piece go up on Shapeways within a week or two after release
