    i came back to this thread to read but i can't get over how good this looks in these colors. definitice CHUGgerpiece Devastator IMO. Given teh combined size though, i think i will have it mostly hang with the siege guys in combined mode though it may hang with the MP scaled but not slavish G1 MP bots (TFM guys, other GT bots, maybe even some reformatted guys) when its in its bot modes. that said, i don't konw how many times i've almost bough the KO OS set but had my reservations about a design being scaled up with not much re-engineering going on with the joints. glad i passed because while "small" by todays MP standards it looks outstanding and i'll let him be a giant among the siege/ER and other CHUG bots.

    Despite my one hiccup with the Dump Truck figure, Rebuilder as a whole just has a presence that is second to nothing else in my collection and helps complete my collection of Season 1 Decepticons (Press F to pay resects for Buzzsaw). I got to say that I love the shade of Purple that they went with for this release. It's leaps and bounds more appealing to the eye that the pinkish purple of the original Gravity Builder set. Here are some photos that I took of the individual bots (Because for some reason it's next to IMPOSSIBLE to find photos of them in these colors online) as well as how Rebuilder looks in my WFC trilogy Decepticon shelf.

    Here's how they scale with some figures from the WFC Trilogy. They're all basically Leader class (Whatever that means anymore) in terms of height which may not work for some, but definitely works for me.

    Thanks for the pics! Personally, I think the scale is fine as construction vehicles are meant to be big and hefty.

    I'm back with an update involving my defective Dump Truck (Long Haul). After showing BBTS the QC issue my figure had (The extra left foot), they actually sent me a replacement Dump Truck which came in the mail today. As for the original figure; I gave it to my step father since Long haul was his favorite constructicon to which he was extremely happy to receive from me. Now my ReBuilder has symmetrical upper thighs putting my OCD at ease so overall I really have to thank BBTS for helping me out.
    Here is a photo showing the before and after.

    Just over a year ago moved half way across the country and had to separate my combiners and put them into alt modes for travel. Finally decided to start combining them and today I learned that First Aid and Blades are compatible with Devastator

    On the negative aspect, the ratchet to Hook’s boom stick stopped working. Anyone know if that can be fixed and how?

    Just picked up a gently used set online for a decent price. These guys were never really on my radar but thought they looked awesome. But now, they seem to fit perfectly with the siege aesthetic. Snagged a warbotron too.

    Yep, I'm hoping the black one goes on sale at a big discount. He would look so nice next to Nero Rex.

    Finally got my set in and all put together. I really pleased with how well he fits in with the WFC line.
