    Here you go

    Trans Craft Moxigan (TLK Mohawk)

    My fear with an SS Mohawk is that he would turnout like the Arcee Triplets. Very chunky and not very detail oriented, sculpt wise.

    Unfortunately by the looks of things he doesn’t have great head articulation :( 

    Doesn’t seem like he can look left and right

    After years of struggling to remember how to transform ROTF Mixmaster, the simplicity of this guys transformation and all the faux-kibble makes me die a little inside :p 

    Kinda funny how neither version could figure out how to make the cab part of the transformation, at least this guy has storing Devastator's head as an excuse!

    Ironhide is cheap now cause he had issues and people found him disappointing (not me but some). Barricade became cheap cause he’s not as popular a character. Both megatron and jazz are both popular and their figures are highly regarded so I very much doubt they’ll be on deep discount like this.
    Sweet! I’m gonna save it for later and skip around a lot. I want Scavenger to still hold some surprises for me when I finally get him. I’ve been wanting to see him the most since devastator was announced.

    I figured I'd at least give them until Black Friday to see if anyone has deals for them.

    Damn lol, he mistransformed hightower pretty badly in that one comparison shot. That and not tabbing in the upper wheel to the red support struts really makes me wonder if he transformed the combined mode correctly.

    Edit: here’s a screencap of combined mode:

    I don’t need it.

    I don’t need it.

    Wow, that's incredibly disappointing considering the cab does nothing between robot and truck. That's just extremely lazy engineering :( 

    Actually there's almost no engineering in mixmaster at all

    He looks good in all modes though. Sucks I will have to waiste money on this

    Bit of a bummer that Scavanger's top wheel is stationary, but he still looks miles above his original toy.

    Looking at the reviews on Scavenger and Mixmaster, I'm still wondering where are Devastator throat gears?

    Man this scavenger is awesome! A few things are bumming me out, but this is by far the best version of the character we’ve gotten. I was hoping he’d come with a stand or something for balance like rampage did, but I think I’ll just make do with using the hands to keep him up. I’m also hoping his upper torso mode was mistransformed, as I’m hoping he can have those grinder thingies for devy. But seeing as how the robot mode was also mistransformed, I wouldn’t be surprised if this was the case.

    But damn! Seeing those pictures at the end makes me reeeeeally want him! He’s incredibly dynamic! I honestly expected this guy to be a static brick, but color me impressed once again. I’m really digging this constructicon set so far!

    Okay, so according to you this toy that improves upon the original, replicates a complicated ILM model that hasn’t had a new toy in years, and also transforms into the head of an even more complicated ILM model has no engineering because of a minor nitpick but you are also going to buy it anyway.
