    I mean as in, they start releasing the figures in May, and for one reason or another, they stop after everyone got say, 4-5 figure, and it gets discontinued.



    Personally, I'd probably cry, and then mop it up and commission a customizer to finish the job.

    I wouldn't cry. I'd just be pissed off. Honestly, that's why I'd rather have a single release of all of the figures.

    And that's why I haven't bought a single one. I'd like to see a complete box set before I throw my money into any of their kits.

    It would totally suck. I'm already scared that something will happen seeing as news on this guy has been very thin and we've only seen 3 of the 6 figures.

    You sound like a glass half full kinda guy! :p 

    But seriously, I'd keep the ones I already had, knowing that I have classics style versions of some Constructicons, which is, after all, better than none. It would suck that I didn't have Devastator, but hey, they look like good individual figures in their own right (from what we've seen so far) so I wouldn't be sad that I owned them up to a point.

    Words out of my head. Unofficial (and official) toys are worth being miserable about.

    IMO... I feel that Hasbro will eventually give us a proper G1 devastator released in the Generations line. I could be wrong though but I keep my hopes up really high.. I could never drop the ball on a $400-$600 item like that. No worries on my end, I won't cry either.

    I'll worry about that after someone actually starts listing preorders for these things.

    This. A single set, albeit for more $$$, would insure a complete Devastator.

    When do these things go on sale anyway? Anyone have preorders yet? All I've seen is the proto images and that's like... it.

    You mean, you haven't brought it because its not even up for preorder yet, right? :p 

    =P I figured it was would be a decent discussion to talk about. Its not really a complaint thread, its just how we will deal with it if the situation arise. And you are right, they do look good in their own right.


    And btw guys, I was being sarcastic about the crying and moping part. The customer part, is true though, and yes, I would be a bit upset, considering at that point in the game I would have spent a decent amount of moola

    As far as I can tell the scale of that thing is about supreme. It is worth the risk, lets hope they finish.

    I would just enjoy the figures that I purchase since they have two modes like the majority of the TF's already do. The Devastator figures would be an awesome bonus.

    hm, I know that many of us definitely just enjoy the figures for what they already are, but I think something we can all agree here though, is that everyone is buying these figures mainly because of the combined mode, no? That's a given, at least for me.

    laugh hysterically

    i applaud them for their effort and that they made a combiner that big, but i havent seen anything from it yet that makes me go wow.

    not that its not impressive in its own right, but i think hasbro/takara can do the character more justice

    I agree - I'm not buying Classics Not-Scrapper, Not-Long Haul, etc - I'm buying Classics Not-Devy. Those things will only be separate for as long as it takes me to put the thing together, then it's gonna stay that way forever. But that's maybe just me.
