    Do you honestly think that Scavenger will be released during the first wave of 2020 and Overload will be like Summer or Fall of 2020?

    Also Hasbro and takara never alternate between size classes for consecutive numbers
    So If anything scrapper and mixmaster would be 48 and 49 not 48 and 51

    I still have mine from back in the day 09' i think when he orginal came out. I think it's the same time around when the movie came out. I'm so glad i hung on too him but i almost sold mine awhile back. Now hearing that Hasbro is building him again in a time release for in the studio series. I'm REALLY glad i didn't sell mine or i might have regret doing so.

    Guys, I don’t mind to bump this thread but I need confirmation that if I buy the individual studio series Constructions, i can combine them into Devastator?

    Thanks guys! I’m so out of the loop that I didn’t know the above fact. All I recall was seeing a prototype of Devastator and thought he might be available in a gift set.

    No gift sets have been announced (yet)
    So right now each of the 8 Constructicons will need to be bought separately (with them all expected to have been released by late 2020)

    On that note, I picked up Scrapmetal yesterday. So my Devastator journey has begun! I just hope they all see release here in Australia
    We haven’t seen a voyager wave of Studio Series figures since Megatron and Brawl!

    Thanks for the update on the giftset. Can’t say I blame them as the original movie Devastator shelf-warmed pretty bad...especially in my country.

    I’m surprised that Australia hasn’t seen much released. In Singapore, Malaysia and HK these series is stocked almost everywhere.

    Well, I want to be cautious because I’m the original ROTF line the individual Constructicons didn’t combine.

    Understood. But the great thng is that since then a decade has lapsed and toy engeneering has improved greatly.

    Distribution has been pretty bad in Australia for a while.

    POTP took a while to get here
    Wave 2 deluxes were virtually skipped (but recently stated showing up, long after wave 3)
    Wave 4 never came here
    We got all the leaders, but Optimal Optimus was very hard to find.
    We got all the voyagers prime masters and legends though.

    Siege wave 1 only showed up at dedicated toy retailers, none of the main department stores got them in and started straight from wave 2 which has only just really started seeing proper distribution to all major retailers (well, most of them)

    Studio series we have gotten every deluxe wave. Although wave 3 and 4 were pretty scarce. The Shatter, Cogman, Scrapmetal wave is the most recent thing we’ve seen released, at one chain of stores first. And then in the last 2 weeks or so they’ve started showing up everywhere.
    Leaders we got the first wave. Guess now we will wait and see if Megatron and Jetfire ever show up
    Voyagers seemed to be going well at first. We got wave 1 right away. And pretty quickly moved on to wave 2 and then... nothing... now most stores either have no voyagers or some leftover wave 2s
    Makes me regret not grabbing Ironhide when I saw him while I was in the US earlier this year.

    So yeah, kinda wary about my chances of buying Devy at retail. May have to grab the voyagers and leaders online if new waves don’t start showing up here soon

    Having the first ROTF Devastator converting from vehicle to individual robots into large robots is really exciting.

    Agreed man! I have the red-face version and I was so happy to get it. It was the largest official TF combiner? But of course, the individual limbs couldn’t transform...

    Missed your post! From your experience, I’m glad I didn’t settle down in Australia...missing out on those figures would drive my insane! I mean, no Studio Series Ironhide?!

    For me, I will try to at least get the core cast from the first movie and even though DOTM is my personal favourite, I’m just looking forward to Sentinel Prime and that version of Megatron.

    For ROTF, I’ll try to complete Devastator and the Fallen - if he ever comes out!

    Hope you get to complete Devastator man!

    Haven been wondering how the designers could've pulled off Devastator's head without parts forming, and this video happened to pop up in my Youtube feed.

    Watch from 50:32 for the Devs head transformation. Yes it's Lego and yes none of the components here has individual 'bot mode. But I thought it's a really cool design and it's certainly one way to incorporate Dev's head in Mixmaster, and maybe also have these bits to form part of Mixmaster's lower body/legs.

    Time will tell. :)
