    What's the price going to look like? 160 Ish? I know the molds are old and they're not as dense as Scorponok or Omega.

    Awww, I didn't know they ditched it. I would have been 100% for a devy set with some nice bots.

    They could just as easily bring it back if the G1 SS stuff sells well enough. Think about how it took 3 years to do something as ambitious as RotF Devy.

    I think I'll hold out for a new Devastator.

    Combiner Wars Devastator is a wonderful piece, and one of my favorite Transformers releases in the last decade. The UW version is even better of course, but any chance to own this mold at retail price years after the fact should be appreciated.

    I just think it does everything right.

    I had expected the CW Constructicons to perhaps turn up again in the 86 Studio Series line individually seeing as they seem to be doing larger scale Dinobots.

    I’d have really hoped for a Unite Warriors reissue, but the base design still has a lot to offer. The Takara one just gave it that extra little more to raise its game.

    Great! This is one of the few things I bought during my self imposed TF exile (actually the UW), but hopefully they will rerelease the Perfect Effect 06 upgrades as well because those are going for crazy numbers right now.

    Would prefer Metroplex. He’s the one Titan I’m missing, and I ain’t paying the overinflated 2nd hand prices.

    At the time you could have gotten the Hasbro Devastator, both PE Kits, the Reprolabels, and a couple silver sharpees and make a Devastator more superior to UW's and it would have been cheaper too.

    Got that one on it’s last release, and indeed it is better.

    I got the UW version but my main take from this post is that its Amazon Globally so hopefully they have noticed that fans actually do live outside of the US and Canada.

    LOL, I just re-bought him on aftermarket. Mentioned it to buddy in Feb. Saw him past weekend and he found his extra, brought it. Paid average eBay prices, fair. The timing on that!

    I had the SDCC one, didn't like the purple being different on chrome and plastic, sold with intent to pick up retail. Never did. But, wanted him to battle Omega on the shelf.

    My biggest issue with the UW set was Mixmaster.

    Why they went that route with him I'll never know. :lol

    Nice something I can pass on. I already have all 3 versions. Hasbro, Unite and SDCC.

    That sounds like a great marketing ad for Gigawatt!
