    Looks fantastic! Although I think I'll be leaving mixmaster's hood off of combined mode. It sticks up a little much for my liking.

    Can't wait for the rest of the constructicons. So happy we're almost at the end.

    Anyone know what that Jet Optimus is in the diorama? It's not the studio series one, I can tell that much.

    Something looked a bit off about the face, so I tried to edit it to more resemble the concept art.

    I can't help overlook the fact that somehow Long Haul and Overload look like long lost brothers given that their head shapes pretty much match:

    It's like when I was a kid during ROTF when I thought Mixmaster was Megatron's little brother :lol

    It's just the original RoTF toys.
    Though they kinda got creative with the Jetfire bits.

    That face is probably the only flaw I have against Overload.

    Agree. It looks like his eyes are unpainted.

    I thought it's a known fact in the TF community by now. Believe it was John Warden that said it in one of the Con interviews.

    Devy's hip joints are Overload's shoulder joints. He'll be able to squat/hunch more than in these pics.

    Just noticed that Overload has a mouth now. I... don't know how to feel about it.

    It's the same kind of mouth as Long Haul's. A circlet of fangs and insectoid-alien scowl.

    Was wondering how much longer before we finally got to see the whole team together.

    Still need to get Scavenger, but funds are tight. Hope I have enough time before the last two are out. Really like how Overload turned out, even if I am bummed we didn't get the crab mode he at least has the four arms. Scrapper looks fine, he was always one of the ones I was looking forward to but also just kinda meh over because he is the most normal of them, sorta (I suppose him and Scrapmetal), but I do love his alt-mode.

    The full Devs is gorgeous and I cannot fucking wait to finally put him all together.

    Y'know, the similarities have suddenly got my brain gears a-turning and cranking out a new headcanon. What if Overload used to be of the same body type as Long Haul before being upgraded/rebuilt/mutated, with his mouth/general head shape being the only trace of his old self?

    For me, I assumed Scavenger. In the movie, the combination is this really aggressive process and Scavenger seems to be calling the shots. Chains whip out and grab the other bots to drag them in.

    Not sure if these were posted on the official news posts yet.

    I think the ones below it are also his eyes. In the Fallen storybook and on the Legends toy he has 4 eyes. I think they forgot to paint the lower eyes.

    I’m probably in the minority here, but while I feel the individual Constructicons all came out great, Devastator is a complete letdown for me. :-/

    The grey model was only a ‘proof of concept’, sure, but this looks nothing like it. The way his head and the grinder are plugged into the body is just super awkward, and he’s missing so much of the bulk around his shoulders (hopefully a 3rd party kit can fix that eventually). I’m really not sure having hun hunched over correctly will fix that. Negative nancy here today, but this feels like bait ‘n switch to me. :(

    For reference:

    I actually think they got it rather close. Collapsing the hip joints more will help. Though, I do agree that the one thing that would have done wonders is if Mixmaster could have attached a little lower and protruded more.

    Interestingly enough, I think a ton of the design was actually based off this concept art:
