    Anyone want to be petty with me and start a petition to get Hasbro to release a CG render of Devastator?

    Nah, no need. Eventually we’ll get one and that’s all that matters.

    Splurged and got Legendary Nemesis Prime (still appears to be Takara only for this mold). Early impressions: Compared to vanilla version, Nemesis has much better hands (not perfect, but can actually hold his own weapon stably now and even other 5mm pegs) and the hips can now do a full 90 degrees in alt mode. His legs are not all black and the gunmetal looks nice in contrast to the black areas.

    I did go ahead and order a KO MP10 Black Trailer (getting much harder to find nowadays...at least from reputable sources). For vanilla version, I couldn't find a KO MP10 trailer in regular colors from reputable sources, so I got the Boku trailer and heavily modified it (including a completely custom hitch).

    Holding his own blaster and a 3rd party weapon (Reaper Scythe):

    Pretty much. But according to a lot of Geewunners, G1 has always gotten the short end of the stick.

    This is starting to get very irritating.

    So, @Unicron the Chaos Bringer suggested here that Devy's torso may be completely backwards! Tonton's Scavenger review uses a different configuration and Overload seems to have a waist joint in his torso.

    I hope he's right, because the current pics have ruined a lot of first impressions and it's a shame.

    It would make sense because it looks nothing like the chest that the CGI image had.

    On another note, maybe ToyWorld is teasing all these figures because they know Hasbro isn't going to reveal anything.

    A comparison between G1 Optimus Prime and Studio Series Bumblebee movie Optimus Prime. You wouldn't be complaining about partsforming if you handled any G1 Transformers like the original fanbase has and like I have. I've seen plenty of G1 Transformers that were incomplete in the collection owned by a cousin who grew up with G1 including a G1 Skywarp that was missing everything but the core figure. As Emgo316 said in his G1 Starscream review, "fans are spoiled rotten and still complain." 20191026_145249.jpg 20191026_150942.jpg

    Everyone's complaining now and then tomorrow or a week later you'll all be singing Hasbro's praises again when they're ready to show something. We're waiting on what, half a dozen figures to even come out? Savor those, enjoy the ones you have. Catch up with the line and let the new figures come out before bitching we aren't getting reveals. Patience is rewarding.

    You mean Scavenger should make the abdomen? That would have the vortex grinder end up in Devi's abs. Right now it's on his back where it should be. Another reason is mixmaster. He fits nicely in this configuration and I doubt they sort of just balanced him on top.
    There you have it. Two reasons that make this theory very unlikely

    Oooor did you mean only overload is inverted 180? That might be more likely

    I was saying along with UnicronTCB that Devy's waist should turn around making the arms end up on the correct sides and that Scavenger probably won't have the grinder, while Mixmaster will end up lower in the torso. Overload would stay generally the same on Devy's back. But that's just going off Tonton's review. I could be very wrong.

    I found this guy (Allspark Tech) on Amazon for $10, free shipping.

    Never saw him at retail. Needed him to complete all the TLK Megatron molds- I have every one, plus the OS KO Voyager.

    It was a weird goal, but I made it! Yay, I guess.
