    Yes yes yes but definitely not if they combine LIKE road caeser due to how small of a torso dirt boss would actually make.If it was like the jet twins with dirt fitting into the middle of the top,that'd be fine

    I don't necessarily think they will, but they could always make up the mass they need for a bigger Devastator with some non-transforming vehicles or drones

    Since they were already designed by the animated cartoon staff and are canonical props and background elements, the only controversy would be for people who really want their combiner components to have robot modes

    There were also those Sumdac drones that got amalgamated by the space barnacles, they're already something between robots and vehicles in their own right so they don't need to do anything but add some extra construction equipment kibble for Devastator

    All already in proper Constructicon colors too!

    out of ALL of the fanmade animated Constructicon over the years (hell, animated fan designs in general), ive only ever found ONE that i truly liked and that felt like it it belonged. and god damn hes fucking perfect.

    animated hightower.jpg

    I absolutely love this design SO MUCH its not even funny. but i don't actually like the rest of Digilaut's Constructicons AT ALL, only Hightower.

    OC/fan design or not, i would give my first born to see this made into plastic.

    So, what I glean from that is that they're using their own original designs for the Constructicons! That's exciting!

    For sure. :D 

    I hope they don't get too crazy with their designs as this is a difficult aesthetic to nail without going too far in one direction or another. The Animated Pipes/Huffer effort that (I believe) MMC attempted a few years back-- although not original designs-- proves this point.

    I don't think Powerglide's alt mode is ever seen, but his character model clearly has treads. I think Derrick J. Wyatt elaborated on it in a blog post somewhere.

    I really hope Mix and Scrap aren't compromised for the sake of the combined mode. I don't care about TFA Devastator because it was never in the show. I'm just looking to finish my TFA collection.

    Think of the repaint potential with that last one... it'll help you build up some capital for this guy. ;)

    This is the TFA Renaissance I was hoping for, but it seems too late for the anniversary, and this set will be trickling out too slowly...

    I'm not sure we should get our hopes up too soon-- although I'm all for more TFA designs. One figure does not a gestalt or furthermore a TFA renaissance make. Until I see the other members of this group as well as any future designs from this company I'll simply bask in the awesomeness of Dirt Boss and hold all other expectations until they feel more warranted.
