    Soooo....now he looks like he was doing some chewing tobacco and stepped in Steeljaw’s turds. [sarcasm mode end]

    Looking at clean Devy here and have no desire for box set.

    Guess it's better than nothing, but did their budget run out after like 5 paint stokes between the 8 figures?

    i can for sure see why people who already have the team would be let down by this box set.
    but i\'m sure this is just for the people who missed out on devy and by making it a boxset,it\'s easier to get it.
    especially with how rare some of the figures are like scrapmetal.

    altough i\'m kinda suprised they did not add rampage alongside skipjack with this set.

    we can only hope that they spend the rest of their budget on fixing the QC issues.

    Why does Long Haul look like he\'s smeared in poop?

    Ok, I fricking NEED this. I've been toying with the idea of getting a second set of Constructicons (you know, for movie accuracy) and this is the perfect excuse. I love their extra paint aps, particulary on the head. And the box, instructions, and back drop look amazing! I hope it shows up in Canada. Maybe as a Toys R Us exclusive?

    The additional paint apps are nice, but ultimately lacking. Still, I'm glad for people who missed out on some of the earlier components who have a second chance at getting this inglorious behemoth.

    Ah well you see there's actually this other squishy brown substance it's trying to emulate called "dirt". It's usually found outside, commonly at construction sites- which is fitting, since they're the CONSTRUCTicons!

    This is how you properly enulate dirt:

    This is how you emulate poop:

    Would you really want it in TRU retail ? So everybody buys it, swaps out their mixmaster and returns it the next day ? If you wanna spend double for a few extra paint apps, Id suggest you take an L with the shipping to ensure you dont get dupped.

    I currently have two sets of these guys (one open and one sealed) and I was waiting for better pictures to see what to do. After these, I think I am going to be selling my sealed copies and getting this. The extra paint on the head really sold me. It will look even better with the DNA kit applied. I think I will stick with the original Longhaul though, it is just overdone on him. Looks like Scrapmetal has some extra paint on his claws also.

    I wonder if the robot mode paint applications for the individual figures will be compromised at all. Maybe the retail set could be "8 figures that combine into Devastator," and this set could be "Devastator that separates into 8 figures," if that's making any sense. Maybe this set prioritizes the look of the combined mode.

    Ah, I’ve never heard of dirt. I’ve been inside my house for all my life. I was never allowed to go outside or anything like that.

    The only reason I'd have bought this - with no new parts - I can't see me paying a premium for this - what happened to the all the new pieces from the London show ?

    Heh, sorry, but this monstrosity still just looks like someone broke apart a bunch of random construction toys, re-glued pieces back in different places, then stuck them all together and told their kid it's a 'combiner'.

    I guess my problem with that is that I don’t really have that much in terms of spending money. This would be something I save up for. For larger figures like this (which I have very few of), I kinda buying them in person. I mean, maybe not Toys R Us (though they have been good to me in the past. I kinda know some of the people who work there), but there’s a good comic store where I live which I would pick it up at. I generally prefer buying things in person as opposed to online
