    Honestly the only thing I’m a little bummed I’ll be missing out on by passing on this set is the extra paint on Devy’s head/grinder.

    wonder if this could be hasbro's "big holliday toy" on the transformers side.

    altough it would be underwhelming for some considering he's already out but in parts :p

    I think parents will definitely bite, considering the constructicons never directly advertise the fact that each member combine (aside from the sides of the boxes).

    It's not different enough for me to pick it up personally, but this is gonna be great for those that missed out on the retail releases. I know my cousin's gonna be all over this, since he got into Transformers with ROTF.

    Wow, I'm in the wrong thread and I know people like this thing, but I find it astonishing he's about good looking as a Madball.

    I'm kind of relieved Demolishor wasn't in the boxset instead of Scavenger, and to a lesser extent yellow Long Haul, so I don't feel the urge to justify buying the boxed set. The dirt paint apps don't look great, but the paint apps on Devastator's face are an improvement.

    It would have been neat if, like the legends class combiner, they did a set with him in g1 colours but darker.

    Although it would be a bit garish if the green was too light like the cw one. Really didn't like that shade.

    no date is known but i would say sometime next month or early december.
    price is not known either but it is NOT 500 bucks as some people on here still believe somehow.

    a combined set of each figure would cost around 260 US dollars which is also the price you pay for this boxset in asia according to a previous leak so perhaps it would be the same in the western market.

    The new paint apps on Mixmaster look nice, and the ones on Scrapper are OK. Not sold on Long Haul's, though.

    The big question is, will this release fix the QC issues with some of the molds?

    Agreed. Most of the Constructicons unfortunately seem to suffer from at least one QC or painting mistake. Hightower’s loose combiner joint, Rampage’s misassembled waist, Scrapper’s nostrils painted as eyes, Long Haul’s wobbly torso ratchet, Scavenger’s eyelids being painted instead of the eyes themselves, and Overload’s ratchets prone to breakage really drag the team down a bit for me.

    Unless this set rectifies most of those problems, I can see a lot of people not giving a shit about it.

    I don’t think the figure itself looks too bad, but for a collectors set I can understand the disappointment. I expected a bit more, as well.

    Never been a fan of the Bayformers aesthetic so I can't say how "good" it looks but I can appreciate the engineering that went into it.

    Extra bronze to really flesh out the sculpt.
