From ACToys user foklau we have a few in-package images of the Transformers Encore 20A "animation type" Devastator. Encore 20A's box art has been given a facelift to match the altered designs of the Constructicons, most notably, the head on the artwork of Devastator. The new head is presented as a major selling feature, and has its own window in the box.

Click on the link above to check out the images.

Nice! I hope the forearms are indeed black.

Randy
saberconvoy
Looks pretty sweet to me
PoweredConvoy
Glad they updated everyone's character art too.

Randy

Oh man!!! He finally looks perfect!
Now I know why I didn't get any other version of Devastator earlier (except the EZ Legends RotF Devastator). I was sort of on the fence, but just pre-ordered him. Purple mixing drum, new head, purple windows on Hook's crane... SWEET!
If Hook's crane-hook faces outwards again like on the G1... That would the be icing on the cake.
Kaijumaster
takes effort for ME to not order that.....
GavynN.X.
That box art is stupid!

But gonna be buying this =)
RDprime
Looks good...I have the first encore release of this with the CD addons and Green Giant and am still compelled to grab this, but it's not a necessity. I don't need it. There's too many other things coming out that are far better.

Just got to keep telling myself that.
Foster
I love the look of this set. Glad I passed on the straight reissue last year.
REMINATOR
Whooo, that face and lip are gorgeous! Luckily I passed the 1st release, I couldn't stand Devastator lip. Can't wait to have this set.
Autovolt 127
For some reason though the green looked almost looked like the yellow on the G2 version.
Foster
No, it's far away from the G2 yellow.
MeGrimlock1976
Why does all this amazing stuff have to come out all at the same time. I wish I could hit the lotto because I would love this! By the time I can afford it, I will have to pay second hand scalper prices for it!!
Timesynch
Get on the upgrade set for this guy, Junkion Blacksmith. XD

sweet, this as well. Im just waiting for the order confirmation from Amiami.
Batman
Looks great. I got the first Encore Devastator release but I might still get this one at some point.
Enigma2K2
When I preordered Encore Devastator, it looked like this... then they switched them on me. I'd be REALLY pissed if not for the fact that I got a new Devastator.
The_Black_Sheep
I'm a sucker for pretty much everything G1 but this? I really don't need this barely-there remold/repaint...
dannyboy76
The new head is good but the yellowish green looks crap. Pass.
Anguirus
That is a devilishly clever way to "reissue." Not for me though, don't like Devastator enough to pay what the sucker costs.

One question is if they were going to put extra effort in why not put the window inserts back in longhaul or the leg split in Mixmaster. ?

It's not a matter of putting them back in, as entirely retooling the figures / creating new pieces for such.

As the photo you linked to isn't a variation of the original tooling but a prototype that was heavily altered before being finalized on and then having the molds created from what we've been getting since 1984.

So for all intents in purposes, those parts never existed on the figures released.

need need need to get this!!!!!!!!!!!!!

but will be staying misb to sit behind herc and giant ( when i finally get giant )
Foster
You can always open it for display, then put it back in the box once you get Giant.

going to get the original for display in between the 2 third party devs
Foster
Yes, I got you the first time.
D-Unit
I think it looks cool. If we didn't get the two 3rd party ones last year, I would get this one.

what i ment to say was i'm getting the original to put between the 2 third partys and the encore to sit behind the 3 combined devs misb
Foster
Ahh, okay. That'll be a pretty sharp setup, actually.
JetBrawn
some 3rd party/custom-maker needs to sell one like this for Green Giant

to replace the derpy head. And while they're at it, paint the back of the head (Hook's foot) green and use clear red for the visor.

It'll be in next year's version.
Stepper
Still prefer the head for Encore #20 than this #20A
kaszal
This looks great... I was thinking of getting the old Encore 20 and JB-07 but now I'm not sure.

Does anyone have any in-hand photos of how the colours on the new Encore 20A match up with the upgrades from CD or JB?

Basically I like the new 20A but want the upgrades to go with it. Any recommendations welcome
Foster
I got the in-stock preorder filling e-mail earlier today from BBTS.
