    I know i have at least 2 years to wait but i am curious to see what 3rd party addons do to this guy(besides the obvious wrencking bawlz). Maybe some hooks for hightower like what he used to grapple the pyramid.

    Just got mine this weekend and finally found this thread before trying to turn him into a foot (because I remembered the issue but not the specific joint).

    Has anyone else ran into this yet to confirm if it's a widespread issue or just bad luck? I'll double check mine tonight.

    Don't think it's particularly widespread. There's been plenty of pics of Rampage in all three of his modes with no other mentions of a similar issue.

    That's what I was thinking, but figured it was worth reupping now that he's hitting retail on a more regular basis. Also to see if it was a particular batch of them.

    (I'm reminded of the issue with leader Ironhide from DotM where some of them had glued head/neck joints and others didn't. With no particular rhyme or reason as to why (if you had two sitting in a store together one may have it and the other may not.)

    Damn, really want to know what he looks like. They followed the 4-legged or the 4-armed design?

    Considering I don't much care for movie designs, I really love the Constructicons. I dunno why... maybe they are SO monstrous I forgot they were supposed to be the G1 guys. :) 
    Devastator is gonna be a very unique gestalt, since it is obvious from the prototype shown they are not designing all 8 members at the same time, just a few. Interesting.

    I took a look at these joints on mine. The left arm rotated fine, but the right arm was a bit tight at first. Thankfully I was able to rotate it fully for transformation and nothing appeared to break.

    One thing worth noting, the joint appears built to only turn one way. On mine, they will not rotate from alt-mode to foot-mode unless I turn them towards Rampage's torso. It's possible the defective one was either glued or had the wrong installation...so it didn't rotate properly and broke when he tried to change it.

    But make note, it only turns one way naturally. So keep that in mind.

    Maybe he'll be able to do both modes with his two legs separating into multiple legs.

    Just took at look at my copy. Same thing, left arm rotated at that middle joint just fine but the right arm feels like it’s going to snap. What a bummer that this is so widespread..

    Well I have some interesting news Southern hobby has posted the "wave 8" assortment for studio series voyagers due in October.
    https://www.southernhobby.com/transformers-studio-series-voyager-class-wave-8-case/p35799/

    What's Interesting is that this wave may not include any new figures meaning we may be waiting to wave 9 for Mixmaster, or Scrapper.

    the wave 8 Assortment:
    1x Bonecrusher, 1x Rampage

    So this wave looks to be straight repacks unless of course Rampage is the Yellow Version.

    it will be interesting to see if any of the other constructicons come with accessories like scapmetal and rampage do and if they do what those accessories will be used for when forming devastator. Also i would think we will get instructions on how to combine scrapmetal and hightower with hightower.

    my hope would be the spider legged one, however im gonna put my money on the bipedal one.

    We have to remember that Overload here is gonna be supporting a lot of the weight of Devastator and will need to have some pretty heavy joints to do so. more limbs = more complex transformation = not enough room for devastator joints.

    Doesn't matter if wave 8 voyagers is just yellow Rampage only new figure, I just want to know if wave 8 Deluxes are a few new molded figures.

    Maybe, I just got Scrapmetal and I can't see anywhere to plug that piece in while he's in hand mode.

    It's most likely on hightower I assume.

    You can line up Devy's "fingers" in hand mode and use the piece as a stabilizer so it forms more of a claw...but that seems more fan moded than official. ....but I agree that absolutely is going to do something. It's too random even hanging out as a "shield" on his one arm.
