The original colored set was also an exclusive, at Wal*mart. Makes sense this one is too.

There's some minor paint apps, to show dirt details and such. No purple on it though. =\

So this is quite a bit different from the G1 colored Takara version that never hit the US anywhere right? The packaging is obviously different.

No purple? Pass
Somafreak38
Wow, the green looks pretty cool, definitely a bought on sight.
Lucario Prime
...And if you look to your left, you can see a huge, ugly character from Revenge of the Fallen painted in an equally ugly shade of green. Devoid of any purple, this equation isn't too hard to solve, it's ugly squared, folks. No flash photography, please...it will anger the beast, possibly putting some more ugly shades on him.

Let us continue with the tour, shall we? If you look to your right, you will see Masterpiece R...
tobuttica
There is ridiculously too much green on that, which is something I didn't think I'd ever say about Devastator. The lack of purple, or really any black makes it look sorta bland.
DecepticonSpike
I've been waiting for this release, but the timing is very bad for me.

Damn frakking bills.
Kaijumaster
WHY SOLID LIME??????? Turned a must have into a total pass!
MrSoundwaveGuy
eh, that's pretty ugly. I didn't care for the Takara version either but jeez, didn't that version at least have a silver face and more purple on him?
Rob Almighty
It looks like the same green used on the original Long Haul Legends figure.

The lack of purple isn't too bad. It's not really an homage without the purple, however it doesn't look horrible without it (aesthetically speaking, of course).

I'd prefer it having purple.
hotrod422
I may bite on this one.
Megatronwp38
here's the Takara one. Def a better break up.
Powersa
I paid $20 for my Wal-Mart Devastator. I doubt I will pay more than $20 for this.
SpicyRichter
Glad I grabbed the nice purple Takara Version

For those keeping score, Takara: 2,784 Hasbro: 87

Yeah, I thought about buying this for my older brother who used to watch the cartoons as a kid, but that was when I thought it would look like this version. This TRU one is ugly as hell.
AutoBobby
I'm probably going to have to pass on this one,unless I can get it cheaper,but knowing TRU they'll probably raise the price on it.
Dinobot Nuva
Do want. Here's hoping its easier to come by than more recent TRU exclusives.

That looks like an easy paintjob to make
barrelks
That's a lot of green. Anyone got the item number yet? I am too lazy to dig up the SDCC pictures to see if I can read the SKU. May as well get it at this point.

Smokescreen
Looks okay. I wouldn't mind picking one up.

Thanks. Gonna have to stop by and see if it (or the new animated) is on the truck tonight.

Goddam Hasbro,would it kill ya to at least add some purple,i honestly dont think it would cost any more to add purple plasic....=/ once again another example of why Hasbro fails at detail...
Rayzilla Prime
GAAAAAAH! MY RETINAS! TOO MUCH GREEN!!!

Well, I've already got the regular version, and that's enough for me. And SHEESH, Scavenger can look good no matter what color he is, even in this set. Even so, he's the best one outta the bunch (mold-wise, at least), but that's just me.
Scantron
I already have the Wal-Mart version and I'm happy with it, so I'll pass on this. Surprised that it's out already, though. TRU seems to be getting a lot of their new exclusives (MP Grimlock, Rodimus/Ironhide, this) in all at once, for some reason.
Bgrngod
I just figured out why I strongly dislike this release despite loving the hell out of the screen accurate version....

It's Grinchastator!!


Asshole be ruinin' Christmas.
Skyclaw
Even though its a homage to G1 Devy its still aweful looking and this is a BIG PASS for me. More wasted plastic by Hasblow
wolfe
I like the takara and the walmart versions better. I would like to pick this one up but i dread trying to find it.
NormanB
Makes the WM version look awesome by comparison.

Could have been awesome with purple.

But hey, at least we'll all be able to get him on clearance, no?

And we can get someone to carry this POS as a store exclusive, but not the unreleased Genrations Robot Heores?

BOO I say. BOO!
Toxicon
I actually really want that. Still, what with all the Generations toys coming out, I'll have to wait for a sale/clearance.
barrelks
Picked it up today, and while it doesn't look nearly as good at the Takara version, it actually doesn't look that bad in person (and I am not even that big a fan of the original). He is definately really green, but the highlights and wheels almost break it up enough for me.

Edit: Damn it, now I am gonna want the Takara version to complete the trifecta. For a mold that I don't really like, this may get expensive.

Lol, bow to the king of slime, the king of filth! I already have the Walmart version, and now i'm even happier that i do.
RageTreb
I was waiting for this because I was mildly interested in the mold (even though I'm not that into the movie aesthetic) because I love G1 homages, however I didn't really want to import it because I didn't want it THAT badly.

Without purple there's really no point in this existing. It sounds silly to say it, but it's true. The only reason this was repainted was to homage the G1 Devastator, right? Then why the hell isn't it homaging the G1 Devastator? This thing fails at doing the only thing it was meant to do. Easy pass, especially for that price point (I know the other Legends Devastator cost that much and I didn't like it there either).
KingStyle
Bought mine today, Im curious to see if they are a bit hard to get. They come 4 to a case, and I think maybe 1-2 cases per store.

Easily one of the best TRUE combiners for Devastator. I wish it had more purple, but what can you do about that?
microclone
saw this today, didnt even know it was coming out, i passed on original version, didnt see walmart or japan versions, but i like the look of this, the nostalgic green really works for me, and the windows on the vehicles are purple!
