    More power to you. My wife and I have sworn off credit cards so that's not an option for me. I already have the Downsized KO for Devastator worst case scenario. I just didn't want to miss my chance to get the real deal. I'm prioritizing Kingdom figures though because BW is my favorite line. Still hope I'm able to get one though.

    That's probably for the best. I should probably quit using my cards, as much, but FOMO has me in it's grips, LOL!

    I'm super excited for this. Not because of Devastator itself, which I already have. But I have some friends who missed it the first time around. And in my case, I'm hoping this will get some prominent 3rd party companies to re-make their accessory kits! I decided after a recent discussion that I'd like to pick up DNA Designs', but in the last few months since I looked at them, they all appear to be sold out. :(

    Hopefully they delayed it so they can use the Unite Warriors molds.

    I'd like to know where I can find such a downscaled Devastator with Takara upgrades.... for a friend.

    I'm going to laugh if they use the Constructicons with no elbows.

    Get one at sir toys in either regular or G2 yellow. But there are no Takara upgrades. Its the hasbro version downsized to proper CW scale. (Bless them!)

    I think that they will move onto Unicron Trilogy, with Takara mostly making the figures, that Armada Prime I think was just a teaser for what's to come ;)

    I can only tell you its on par with the quality of the Hasbro version in terms of plastic quality (my friend owns the offical) The Takara upgrades would be nice but TBH its gonna stay combined most of the time anyways.

    Is it the same quality plastic? If so, maybe I don’t need to shell out for the official afterall...maybe I have a bad copy but I’m worried mines going to break if I look at it wrong. Scrapper’s leg joint had stress marks out the box

    Man, what a time when this was released. 99 bucks CDN at Walmart, you just can't beat that!

    You're probably thinking of the G1 reissue. The CW version was about $180 Canadian.

    I could just keep him combined, but TBH I would love proper deluxe constructicons with full articulation. Ah well. Can't have everything!

    Its really only scrapper and long haul. And that yellow G2 set makes it even more unique if youre looking to justify the 2 no elbow guys.

    Man, what a time when this was released. I could order the UW version cheaper than buying the CW version locally. But then Brexit hit hard and the exchange rate went to pot. I'll never buy from overseas again. :(

    In the bright side, this is a good thing. There are A LOT OF good stuff right now in pre-order and we are even angry because some of them are sold out.

    Toydojo put up a new listing at $230. Probably from older run as listing mentions the box being dinged up.
