If it's cheap and big enough Ill buy it. No such thing as too much devastator.
If its cheap and scales well with stuff hel yea
^^ pretty much what they said...
If the price is right, I'm down. It might even be cool to start a whole line of non-transforming G1 with the nice representations of the animated models (and good articulation). I'd totally be into that.
This is pretty cool.
I'm game, however I might wait to see if Custom Robots brings out a Revoltech version of Devy.
No point if he doesn't have his action master partner...
I can´t help thinking we might be seeing more of this in the future? Just think about the admittedly awesome Giant and Hercules, all that intricate engineering, and most people probably just keep them in their combined forms on a shelf most of the time anyways... It kind of connects to this thread I created recently:
why not articulate the hands? its a pretty good 86 movie Dev, but i need more stuff for him to grab.
Given the popularity of the Loyal Subjects vinyl figures (I'm hooked on those lil' things), I can see a market for this.
In case Hasbro never comes up with a legit Devastator (that doesn't suffer from any compromise, I might add), this'd be something to fall back on. As awesome as Hercules or Giant may be, both are well out of my normal range. Will definitely keep tabs on this.
I kinda dig this actually
Well, now I may need to get into Action Masters.
Yeah, Giant and Hercules are just too far out of reach, for me. I can't drop $400 on a toy, no matter how cool it is. But at the same time, if it doesn't transform, I want it to go nuts with articulation. Have to see what the price point on this is, to really decide.
Nice enough for the most part, but that head sculpt. Yeesh.
Could - and have, IMHO - done better myself. Somewhat unfortunate dealbreaker, as the rest of him is pretty groovy.
(Attached pic from back in 2010, of a planned upgrade piece for all the Devs being bashed from Unicron/Primus parts at the time.)
Yeah, I like theirs better.
Fair enough, horses for courses and all that.
Interesting. Agreed that since it wouldn't transform, they should give it a bit more articulation. Wonder how it scales with G1 Revoltechs and Custom Robots figs.
How do BnA go from one of the best figures this year to this. There is nothing wrong with this devestator but I had high hopes for the next effort.
