Basically, it's as simple as this... If you're going to nitpick it to death as a "3rd Party" figure, then, no...don't get it, you aren't going to like it due to focus on the negatives, (which are few overall...). However, IF you're willing, AND ABLE, to view it for WHAT IT IS, which is a KO of a 3rd Party combiner SET, at a SUPER REASONABLE PRICE (for what it is), along with said flaws (which still aren't THAT bad), then, yes...I say buy it (along WITH the factory upgrade set, which most do include the King's Claws). The plastic is better than the Hastak Devastator, though not as good as other 3P or KO stuff out there, but STILL better than others (again, nitpicking a KO), and WAYYYYY MORE articulated in all modes. I have him, and I really like the entire set, flaws and all, and he LOOKS to be more G1 in combined mode than the upcoming Hasbro set, for what it's worth. Not to mention it's SIX OS/KO FIGURES & UPGRADES, WITH WAY MORE ARTICULATION & WEAPONRY THAN CW DEVASTATOR (which is where your true comparison may lie...or possibly with the OS/KO GT DEVASTATOR, which is definitely better, but there's an age difference between those toys to consider as well. Anyway, hope that helps you decide somewhat on which direction to go.
