    I think the ROTF legends set established that a green & purple movie Devastator is not something the world needs. This design just looks awful in G1 colours:

    I support the hopes for a weathered but still movie-accurate paint scheme... hopefully with more detail, actual alt mode decals, and clear windows while they're at it. Just give us the best possible versions of these figures.

    My idea on how it will look, the front might not be clear plastic though

    As an owner of this set, I second the opinion that a giant green blob is not really needed.

    I’m also hoping for a more accurate paint scheme. Especially for Scavenger. Weathering would be cool as well. I also wouldn’t mind an all silver/grey face, which would be against accuracy I suppose, but would match the original renders and break up that sea of red when viewed from the front. But, I’ll probably be buying this regardless. I already have two sets of all the currently released SS Constructicons. So a box set will allow me to display them in all modes.

    I think Diaclone would be an absolute seller. Get some blue going on, it’d look fantastic.
    See I agree that this version sucks. But I think if they did make one it should use the colour philosophy of Back Road Brawl Mixmaster. upload_2020-5-17_13-14-25.jpg
    A nice balance of green, grey and purple. Having the whole set in green is like an ugly lime coloured chase figure.

    I could use a second one (went back and forth on getting two sets this whole time). Though it is not a priority, if it is assembled and displays nice in package, it will probably be purchased. Hell, me not having to figure out how to jam my individually packaged ones together to form this abomination is worth a few bucks alone.

    If I can afford it, I’d totally be game for this! I kinda debated having two sets, one for the individual bots and one for Devastator. I thought it’d be cool to have Devastator and then all the Constructicons separate, like in the movie. Plus, given that we’re getting Skipjack, and presumably a Demolisher down the road, I’d love to have them all in a group shot.

    Here’s my question, though. Do you think this might be more screen accurate? You know, more white, add on pieces for the combined mode, and maybe even a replacement for Scrapheap? Maybe the bulldozer?

    Lord God almighty...

    Let's look at the box. We all know that Hasbro would hate to waste space, right?

    Anyway, the total volume of the box is 58,838.592 centimeters cubed. For reference, the SDCC Combiner Wars Devastator's box was 32,118.6454 centimeters cubed. This box is 26,719.9466 fucking cubic centimeters bigger than a TITAN SCALE BOX.

    It is almost TWO FUCKING TIMES LARGER
    . THAN A TITAN SCALE BOX.

    I sadly don't have all the members (I've seen Longhaul in Krogers and I've been tempted but at the same time I don't wanna risk paying $36)

    Krogers is having a sale right now, so if it's still there you could grab it with another tf figure...And to stay on topic whoa that would be a very big box...

    So far I've only gotten the first 4. I haven't seen Scavenger, Mixmaster or Scrapper here. I mean, Canada already has a tough time getting figures, let alone where I live in Canada. Now with the pandemic, it seems like I'm gonna have to order them instead of going into a store, which is what I prefer

    I only have Rampage. This will be a great way to get them all at once, hopefully with Skipjack!

    I personally hope it's a version with more battle damage and realistic paint (maybe with even more accessories) and then Hasbro can release Demolisher and Payload repaints separately (like they're doing with Skipjack).

    Considering the only SS Construction I have is Rampage, I really hope they choose to release it with Skipjack

    If it's just the same w/ better detailing, pass.

    If at least half are complete redecoes I'll buy. Ooo, how about this, let's take things from ALL OVER the place:

    Long Haul-- Payload colors
    Scavenger-- Demolishor colors
    Mixmaster-- Animated pre-Decepticon colors
    Scrapper-- G1 colors
    Hightower-- RID2001 colors
    Scrapmetal-- Cybertron colors (red variant, to match Hightower)
    Rampage-- Beast Wars colors (so add some purple in)
    Overload-- RID2015 colors

    (Yeah, I know. Pipe dream.)
