Luckily I’m not looking to fund anything with it, I just want it gone.
All I can come up with right now. I may have something better soon.
Don't be. I've had hundreds of transactions on eBay and I can think of 3 of them that haven't worked out (buyers cancelling, unpaid items, etc.) eBay is not evil, just do your homework and list your items with clear descriptions and pictures.
I guarantee your Supreme Devastator will sell on eBay as long as you price it accordingly.
If you don't want to ship far, I would recommend a website like Kijiji - Buy, Sell & Save with Canada's #1 Local Classifieds. List it for the lowest price you'd be happy with, and should you find somebody passionate enough about the product to meet all your terms, you could drop the price or outright give it to them

There's a trustworthy site called transformerland.com. They buy and sell figures. I've bought a handful of orders from them the past few years, they're also connected to Ebay, and I've had no issues. You can try to sell your Devy if you get in touch with them.

Already posted in the review but here's some DOTM Optimus pics.
Edit: Here's how the jetpack fits under the ring:
I think I may try to kit bash the FWI Jetwing with the official.
Finally someone shows how the shield works. Thank you
I should mention it needed help to do so (lego), but it fits in trailer mode still:
Edit: A couple more tweaks mentioned the review thread:
Added the remaining roof lights from hftd optimus:
And made slots for the sword to fit rotf style:
Speaking as an avid gunpla builder, I generally don't like treating action figures like projects, I want it good to go out of the box. IF I wanted to build something I'd buy a model kit...speaking of which...I just finished all my backlog, I suppose I should go buy a new gunpla now....
1. Ratchet - bad paint, flimsy legs, feels very half done and has a microscopic vehicle mode. Easily my least favorite.
2. Bumblebee - IDK I just think he looks fat and chubby, thank god SS-18 and SS Concept Bee remedied it.
3. SS05 Optimus - dull, uninteresting colors and a poorly done chest. Remedied and made mostly redundant by SS-32.
4. Crowbar - hairs get in the way a lot, also turns into a tiny and unattractive vehicle mode. Is much better with his dreads removed.
5. Bonecrusher - too small. He's not bad, it's just that other SS figures have been better in my opinion.
What about Crank.. Shut up. He doesn't exist.
Honestly i wonder what the chances of mixmaster getting revealed today are ?
I think its possible but im not betting on it
And yes i mean today when hasbro will have a transformers panel or rather hasbro panel at Fan expo Canada
Hey, you are in luck. Look what I found:
One down, two to go.
On a more serious note, I think most of the Bee Movie figures suck. The process for making these figures does not mix with the movie making process. They could have been made later and be decent but instead they waste plastic and the SS roster.
The way repaints have been handled in this line has kind of blown me away. Why would you make a new head sculpt and weapon and put it on a pre-existing body when it is not accurate (Sentry), then when that is all you have to do to make it accurate, you don't (Boss)? Battle Damaged Megatron should have been DD Brawl instead. Crankcase was supposed to be a repaint, too bad they repainted the wrong figure.
Would a Grindor figure ever make sense in this line? Is there ANY difference between him and Blackout (in robot mode at least)?
Ahhh Hasbro really let me down with that blue Stinger repaint.
That Dropkick 5 pack is a Walmart exclusive, right?
It's like over..... I dunno, 1 and a half year since the last time I got a Studio Series figure?
Got myself SS-46 Dropkick at last, after a long hiatus from Studio Series. Can't wait to open it up and see how this fella holds up.
Ebay is really different than it was when it first started. With paypal there are many protections in place and if there is an issue it's almost always resolved in a way that is satisfying to me. I've been on ebay for 15 years and I've bought and sold many many transformers off of there. Plus, in this case YOU would be the "unfortunate seller"
Awesome mods! I wish I had legos now...
Well that’s why I don’t like it. Heard of how eBay is all about the buyer and how sellers can get ripped off easily with a simple lie. eBay apparently always takes the buyer’s side. I don’t want to have to deal with that.
I'll just leave these here:
I like folding up Jazz's gun and making it into a sort of axe. Works really well since the gun barrel doesn't fold too unlike the SS figure.
Yes, maybe once in thousands of transactions have I gotten screwed, but if that is your standard for not trying things then you'll miss out on some cool stuff. Stop having a boring tuna, stop having a boring life!
