    In the cartoon only the extension is purple. The largest part of the boom is green, and so when unextended it is just green. The toy is green also.

    Nonnef has said that he intends to make a variety of add-ons for Devy - including a cab-cover for MixMaster - each of which will be sold separately. Only draw-back, is that we haven't had much of an update about it for a few months (so, not sure where he's at with it).

    Personally, I'm really enjoying my UW Devy as he is at present, so I'm prepared to wait - especially given that the number of upgrade options on the table only appears to be growing.

    Uhm, well I kinda got that after Autoboty said it up a couple weeks ago. ;) 

    After Autoboty's post I noticed that UW's Hook/Glen has purple which was a nice touch.

    Got it, the UW gun does mount.

    It's also compatible with the perfect effect kit

    Is there a plastic color difference between CW and UW Devastators? Or are they both the same green?

    Dr. Wu - dw-p28 hook

    Can someone post what the hook upgrade looks like when attached in robot mode? It looks and functions great in vehicle mode and combined mode, but does it collapse enough to not be in the way in robot mode?

    Some people say they're different but I've seen both right next to each other. It's the same color. If it's different, it's so minor you'd need a spectral analysis to see it.

    Yes this. The PE kit won't sit flush against Hook's back when he's standing unless you want to cut or modify the original boom. If you put this one, is it flush or is it another tripod effect where it has to lean out?

    Any pics or info would be greatly appreciated before I pick one of these up.

    The Dr. Wu kit (by itself) will allow the figure to stand upright without a tripod effect.

    I have the PE kit on mine but I have the Dr Wu crane arm. He stands just fine. I'd take a pic but I don't feel like taking Devastator apart right now.. :lol

    Is this still available anywhere? It's literally the only upgrade I wanted for my UW Devastator and I'm not sure how I missed the original release. :(

    These are almost impossible to find anymore. Is it you just want an extending crane for hook or this one in particular? Just thinking the one from the PE kit would be easier to locate and give you at least an extension ability.

    I have the Perfect Effect kit now... an its... meh. I was mostly just wanting the more g1 toy-ish looking extending boom crane that the DrWu kit had. I didnt know it was rare. Maybe DrWu will reissue it eventually. :(

    Yeah Dr Wu stuff is all like that. It's around and then it's not. Usually it's something you need to jump on pretty quick.

    You could always go to the Buy Sell Trade section here and post a "Want" for it. I've gotten some pretty hard to get stuff there that was similar to this.

    Still bothers me that this is a 3P product, when it should have been designed this way right from the start. I mean, I love my CW Devastator, but Hasbro cut so many damn corners on some of the simplest things.
