    Funny you say that, i always thought that on the contrary he was one of the easiest because he was a 6 bots combiner instead of 5, and he didn't have giant feet shape feet.

    since this devy will most likely have thigh pieces that clamshell on. i wonder when @NOCV will give us a set of proper studio OX thighs...o_O 

    if we had those this would be absolutely perfect and a mini TW devy basically.

    Need to apologize, I just realized I mixed up Scrapper and Scavenger's names (again). Need to turn in my "G1 fan" card...

    They just released Bumblebee and the first Stunticon two pack, right?
    If I remember correctly Prowl, Shockwave, Motormaster, Dragstrip/Deadend, Ultra Magnus 2.0, and probably Smokescreen are the only other figures announced so far.

    Looking at the NA devie, for me the magic square version will display much better with my MP figures.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Smokescreen is another year, given the pointless delay between Bluestreak and Prowl.

    I know other places can be cheaper, I do make sure to note the option, but clearly plenty of people still buy from US retail since US retail still exists. All those sales can't be completely ignorant of the foreign options. With the US retail price it is basically more or less the highest price they might pay, assuming they don't wait for the secondhand market. If they are surprised about the note of a cheaper option there are always people willing to help with that. I'm not familiar with them to really be able to help with something like AliExpress anyway. My personal circumstances simply set the cost to benefit ratio so the US retailers make sense for me.

    I'm worried for this one because NA looks to have dedicated knees however this MS one doesn't look like it does... maybe it's just the angle?

    Dedicated knees as in it has a separate piece, or has knees at all?

    Also seeing these two side-by-side, for me MS is what I hoped an "animation accurate" Devastator would look like, and NA is what I feared it would be.

    they should make a removable grille on Mixmaster for a cartoon accurate version. just a green plate with no detail. similar to MP Inferno frontend attachment.

    then that would look perfectly like the animation model. that's one of those things on Devastator that is always going to have to be grey/Chrome or coloured due to cab/ mixer mode (and G1 toy) mode.

    I don't own much MS toys since I don't collect much legends stuff, but this guy is definitely on my list !!

    like alot of people have said, this is what I hoped an animation Devy would look like. ❤️ !!

    I think you might have them backwards. But regardless, I don’t think “dedicated knees” are a thing to be concerned about on a figure like this. I can say with a fair confidence that both will have working knees.

    Probably gonna be the usual body part pairing. Although it’d be amusing if they scattered it. Like Bonecrusher and Mixmaster together.
