Congrats on the find!
Got all devastator I happy with it... I don\'t need or want other rampage (yellow).
It’s weird, the two leg configuration is growing on me. Especially with what the DNA kit will do for it. Those shoulders though are the weakest part of the whole thing. I really wish they were normal in/out and up/down capable.
Stupid question but is there any idea of when Overload will be in stock anywhere online?
I've seen some Walmart b&m stores restock on leaders.
I'm trying real hard to get rid of my Devastator lmao
Finally got my hands on overload. After looking at the different configurations, then playing around with my own, this is what I have:

Im really disappointed they didn’t go with option 1, it’s the more accurate layout for devastator.
The stability of Devastator as a whole would have been absolute dogshit had they not gone with a Leader Class Overload. But it is cool that a Commander Class Scavenger was considered at one point. He probably would have scaled better in terms of individual robot mode.
the two options both have a label saying \"scrapper weapon\" even though he doesn\'t come with one
Hmm, interesting how in the 'Option 1 vs Option 2' photo highlights Mixmaster in green like Hightower and Scrapmetal, implying he was going to be a Deluxe at one point. It probably would have scaled better for his individual modes, but left Devastator with a tiny head.
Wow, looks like Hasui was largely responsible for the engineering on this guy. I knew he was largely involved with the Generations stuff, guess I shouldn't be surprised about Studio Series.
These pictures are so great.
Sooo. We all now have to pretty much acknowledge that it was TAKARATOMY who were MAINLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MAJORITY OF THE STUDIO SERIES MOVIE TOYS.
I've been wondering if they'd reveal a Commander Class SS figure. Seeing this seems to put that option out there.
We're getting a "Titan" in the Devy boxed set...so I wonder if Studio (and maybe Studio 86) continue to thrive if that'll happen in the next year.
As a 3D designer, I absolutely adore those unsculpted hip prototype pics.
Thanks Mr. Shogo Hasui for this wonderful design! I read an interview in Japanese in which Mr. Shogo Hasui explained the challenge he faced when designing this masterpiece of work.
Do you happen to have a link to the interview? I've only seen the stuff on Unite Warriors' Devy.
