    For the first movie, hasbro came up with G1 repaints of Jazz, Ratchet Starscream and others.

    My question is, would you like a repaint of the constructicons and Devastator in his G1 colors.

    In my opinion, it would look nice if they did it right, but it could also turn to be an abomination.

    No thanks. Having one version of that pathetic POS is bad enough.

    Well, before considering a repaint, I would like a Devastator figure in the first place. A real one.

    Considering how bad the toy looks, I'll probably just pick up the individual robots, they look better than the simplified vehicle-limb only parts anyways.

    If I want a G1 colored Devestator, I'll go look for the Classics Devy repaint.

    No. Honestly, I think a G1 inspired repaint would just make Devs look worse than he already does. It might look interesting on the individual/non-combining Constructicons, but definitely not on Devs. Even then I'm not sure I would buy any of the CC's with G1 inspired paint jobs. Long Haul isn't far off as-is, since he's already green.

    IMO: it wouldn't go over well.

    Its already 100. Who wants to pay another $100 just for a repaint?

    Not in the neon colors, no. If it was a more subdued, pale shade of green (similar to the Longhaul FAB) then maybe.

    Do people really dislike Devastators look in the film? or just the toy? cause i absolutely love what he looks like, its nothing like the cartoon or comic books which i kinda wish had more influence from it but its still one sweet looking transformer :D 

    I would buy one when it comes out, but i just don't think i have the room in my shoebox room or the money lol.

    I love the Look in the movie, but When they announced the Big D. would be in the movie, I was expecting the big come back of the Gestalts in the toyline.
    How could Hasbro make such a miss is beyond me...

    I love combiners and was eagerly anticipating this toy. However, to me, it is not really what a combiner should be with this technology and from what I have seen so far I feel let down. So repaint or not I am disappointed

    Nope, Not even a G1 repaint could get me to buy it for $100.00. Heck, I can just about buy Masterpiece Grimlock at that price!

    I'm confident that a G1 repaint of this thing is pretty much a guarantee, so I won't be surprised in the least when - not if - it happens at some point next year.

    Too bad no repaint in the world could ever save that design.

    I don't mind how he looks now, and I certainly won't buy a repaint. I just want a proper Devy. Until this is done, I'm not buying either (planned) release.

    Screw a repaint, I'd rather them snip the price of the overpriced figure by 50%.

    Though honestly, if (and only if) they repaint it as well as cut the price, I'll probably get the G1 repaint simply so that the gestalt version and the single-bot versions of the toys don't share a color palette.

    The design of Devie for this movie would look sweet in the G1 colors. But the toy is so terrible that it just doesn't matter.

    First I want a movie Devastator toy that doesn't suck. Then we'll talk about repaints.

    Voted yes as much out of inevitability.

    Not planning on buying it, but a (huge) price cut and a G1 repaint could get me.

    You do realise that you will not be able to find any when they end up discounting it it to £10.






    Everyone else will, just not you! ;) 


    :D
