    Yeah, exactly! :thumb 

    I pretty much hate Bay-verse stuff... but I also like weird, bizarre TFs! :)  So this Devastator is a complete contradiction that might be perfect for me? :lol 

    That said, I can't help but feel he looks TOO MUCH like a pile of junk. :sly:  In other words, he will not display well with any other bots.... (assuming you're more a fan of G1 than Bay-verse).

    I mean some bay bots very pretty cool in terms of design like Stinger or Jazz, and although Devy looks pretty weird is due to him being mis-transformed
    I consider the gray model is when an actual person who collects Transformers will properly combine to show how amazing he actually is with his gears and plates, right now he just sick from a "careless transformation" which causes him to look the way he does

    I’ll be surprised if we don’t get at least a Demolisher repaint of Scavenger and. Skipjack repaint of Rampage. Really hoping for the last one for more accuracy.
    At the very least then it will match my set for the legends (to a degree) since o have the red Rampage and White Demolisher repaints.

    We probably might get a repaint of them in 2020 along with a Grindor repaint of Blackout

    I would add that the color-explosion isn't helping things! :lol 

    I think some darker, junkier colors would be better... and hopefully the final copy has that. Otherwise, it's like throw some mud on the toy!

    The junk vibe works with this combiner. I think a proper display would be a junkyard with Devy rising out of the garbage like a beast. :eek: 

    But I have no idea what I'll do with mine! :lol  I'll probably combine him, appreciate him for a bit, and then toss him up on eBay! Or maybe I'll put him hunched over on a shelf, with a G1 character diving into him with a sword? :lol  THE BEAST MUST DIE!!!! :D

    And there's always the chance of a G1 repaint, sold as a box set, like they did with the Legion class Constructicons

    (Still an impressive figure, even by today's standards)

    Ask Cheebs to use his magic to repaint the prototype like he did here so we can see if g1 fits bay-verse devy

    I don't actually expect them to do enough repaints of the constructicons for a full on second Devastator outside of the obvious Demolishor, Skipjack, and Payload. (as much as i wish it would happen.)

    though, if they were to do a repaint of Mixmaster. I would also kinda hope they retool the face into something entirely different, just because. Give the combiner a whole new identity.

    Sooo, in a nutshell - mistransformed toy remains mistransformed but now looks better. Nobody is quite sure how this toy transforms correctly. People unsurprisingly like different things.

    My favourite bit was when the G1 MP 3P comparison was brought into play BECAUSE OF COURSE IT WAS.

    I hope it's not a boxed set, I'm just interested in Demolishor (I prefer his colours more than Scavenger's), and Skipjack.

    If you like all of those figures, then yes. I'm not a fan of most of them. When it comes to combiners, most of the time I display them combined. I have never taken apart Devastator or Predaking once combining them, and most Combiner Wars Combiners I have kept together since I had them. In the long run, I felt like they were worth the $100-$150 I paid for each set. I just don't think this guy comes close to looking $260 cool for me.

    It looks good for what it's trying to accomplish, I still don't like the backpack and how his head is reallyally just a face on Mixmaster's cab.

    yes i forgot to add some context, in the non transformable prototype they were but then they are not in the finished product and thats what some people have been saying, then somebody said maybe they were just a thing from the game, i forgot to say that

    I am so excited for him. He can do a hulking Gorilla like pose, and it looks as though he can stand a bit more. But it looks perfect!

    Imagine that being the price if they made a Gift set. Maybe even more as a SDCC Exclusive.

    Did anyone see this? While I don't think this guy has the combination completely correct either, I think he's doing some things differently than what we've seen, like with those red pieces tabbing onto Mixmaster.
