    I think we don’t have enough info and it’s a wait and see sort of thing

    Finally got the last bits in today. I’m planning on having them as individual ‘cons in a diorama of Starscreams Coronation/demise, but meantime? Prepare for extermination! (Ignore the ceiling titty)

    Gotcha, thanks for that - might wait for confirmation, it's a bit of a pain to ship to New Zealand right now.

    Mine arrived yesterday. I love the individual six bots! There are a couple of wobbly legs, and I don't mind the hollow feet. Scrapper's chest panel fell off straight out of the box, and I think the pin for it could have been longer:

    But the combined mode is underwhelming.

    There's too much of the skeleton frame, and Long Haul is an irrelevance, just hanging off the back. The combined form is too stretched for me, with the thighs seeming overly long. (Yes, I had looked at pictures and wasn't keen, but it's more noticeable and worse in hand.)

    There aren't enough ratchet clicks an the top of the legs, so you go straight from parallel legs to full-on power pose. And here isn't enough heel to make him as stable as I'd like, but maybe it's just my Scrapper being a bit loose.

    But never mind. I buy Newage for fun little bots to fiddle around with at my desk, and the individual ones are definitely good for that!

    Stupid awkward spaced ratchets are gone.

    Worst part of the figure is an easy fix. Take apart the hips, reverse the ratchets and friction a'hoy. Your path to to a reasonably spaced A stance 20210924_225750.jpg

    in the EX set...lol

    but seriously no one really knows if this set will have the extra faces or ox kit. i dont hold much hope for it since i haven't heard a peep about anything except the replacement feets.

    That's pretty rubbish considering it was on the toon set for a lot of early photos.

    Please excuse my ignorance but what do you mean by “reverse the ratchets”. Could you please explain. Thank you.

    My C sets and the body came earlier this week from ShowZ (yay they shipped these together too!). There are the odd choices and annoyances about this set that others have touched on (needing an extra ratchet on the hips to avoid such a wide stance, how do you engineer a Hook that can't move its head, I wish Long Haul's dump truck bed could fold into the backpack more instead of just hanging off the back, no extra faces for the combined head feels weird), BUT this is still probably the most enjoyable Devastator I've owned since the G1 Encore release? I can't remember actually enjoying combining a Devastator before since the OG toy, and I own a bunch of options (Universe/RiD, Classics/Energon, RotF combiner & Legends, Studio Series, TFC, Kre-O). Yeah having a whole separate torso is a bit of a cheat, but after experiencing XTB's trailer and combining of Menasor, I appreciate when everything tabs in nicely and stress-free. I own several combiners where I have no intention of separating them ever again because of what a pain in the ass it was to get to the finished product, but I legit enjoyed the process and end result of Newage's Devs. I really really hope Diaclone and G2 yellow sets are on the table still, and hell I'd even buy G2 orange if offered.

    Is MFT Huge Dragon a viable Omega Supreme to pair up with NA Hephaestus? If not, what would you guys recommend?

    A good, even-handed review!

    As someone who cares about the individual bot modes, I'm a bit miffed about Hook's immobile head. That is one design choice I really wish had not been carried over from Hulkie!

    I'm assuming they're disc ratchets, which means there's a smooth side and a toothed side. If you flip the discs so the smooth sides are together instead of the toothed sides, it becomes a friction joint.

    Thanks! And yeah I bought extra sets just for the individual modes because those matter to me too, so Hooks' head basically being trapped made me sad. I opened it and just assumed I had to push something down or pull something up because they couldn't have designed that intentionally...oh wait, oh dear they did, oh no.
