    This price breakdown made me consider, if DNA Design essentially just ignored the existence of SS-44 and just made a DOTM kit for SS-32 that came with a replacement ab piece, and came with the jetpack and guns, all for around the same price at their PuP kit, I'd be all over it.

    Well the 4Ever tri-barreled ion canon costs $50 and goes with $50 - $100 TFs.

























    But I know that the 4ever one has 3A/Prime1 level details.

    Anyways @Megatron118,

    After fiddling around with Dropkick so much, Trying so hard to transform the doors, pairing it with Shatter and Watching Justin Theroux clips with him, all I can say is...





    By far the best Studio Series Deluxe figure to me. Unless it changes with Studio Series Soundwave.

    Yes, the only differences are that Movie 1 Prime (SS 32) comes with one blaster and no other accessories, and has the original chest as opposed to the silver chest that the DOTM figure has.

    Also, the DOTM one has pins in place of a friction hinge joint that SS 32 had on a part that was prone to popping off.

    There was some conversation about the Dr. Wu tri-barreled blaster so I thought I'd get mine out and have SS-32 hold it. I think it looks pretty good for a giant rifle.

    Score! Walked into Target this morning just as they were freshly opening cases to stock the shelves. Grabbed Hightower, Dropkick, and Drift. Also saw KSI Boss in person for the first time so now he's on my list lol.

    Each Deluxe excels in their own way.

    Hightower is the kookiest (in a good way).

    Drift has an amazing robot mode.

    Dropkick has an awesome transformation. My only complaint with him is loose hips, which are fixable.

    Brilliant wave!

    Wow looks way better in your pics! I guess it's a good size, maybe my problem is just with the design of the rifle. I always liked the regular blasters better because they were a more reasonable size and also it was cool that they clearly transformed out of his back. From dotm onwards they always had handheld weapons instead of integrated ones and I always liked the integrated more. Anyway yours looks awesome!

    Hmm. It all comes down to personal preference but IMO it needs to be a cm or 2 shorter.

    Does anyone have a good comparison between this Dr Wu tri barrel and the one that came in the FWI-5 weapons kit?

    So I scored this guy off of eBay for like $23.50. It's legit and came with the box too. It feels so much better than the cheapo knockoff I got. IMG_20190817_120115.jpg IMG_20190817_120828.jpg MVIMG_20190817_121426.jpg MVIMG_20190817_122541.jpg

    The weathering and colors are perfect. He is an amazing little devastator and feels and looks great.

    I really want Hasbro to do a SS box set of Devastator in these G1 colors.

    I'd buy every single one. I don't normally like SS figures. I got Prime and Bee from Bumblebee for deskbots at work and then picked up Shatter and car Dropkick but if they went all in Cybertronian-moded figures from the Bumblebee intro I'd love it. The aesthetic is awesome. I don't like Bayformer designs in the slightest and Siege can be a little too G1-y at times so Bumblebee Cybertron-intro figures would really hit a sweet spot for me.

    I can't help but wonder what it would look like if you took heli dropkick's chestpiece and backpack and modded them onto car dropkick (using the head of the latter). It would be non-transforming, but I feel like it'd be super accurate to how he looked in the movie...

    The FWI-5 is a bit shorter, but it's wider and less detailed than Dr. Wu's.
