    To be honest, I didn´t realise the reversed foot until I read about here in the forums, so I haven´t looked for that on the box.

    Details similar to Scavenger, but the CW Constructicons have much more transforming parts, which you can clearly see.

    I don´t want to say that CW Devy looks cheap, but I think he/ his bots follow the trend of hollowed parts.
    Guess that will make him light and so he won´t be very fragile and with hiss size and mass, he stays very stable.

    Just the waiting is killing me. 2 weeks feels like a month.

    It would make sense if they were hollow to avoid heaviness. But it would make it look cheap.

    We're actually down to 12 days, if past years are any indication. Toyfair "starts" on Saturday, but Hasbro usually has a preview night on Friday night, where they show 1 or 2 big things. Presumably this year, Devy will be shown.

    Hollow wouldn't actually help since that would screw up their center of gravity (he would end up too top heavy since most of his mass is around there). It would be hard to do anything with him them if his limbs were mostly hollowed.Look at any of the CW figures, they have some hollow parts but they mostly have a decent amount of weigh in them. I would have preferred a little more in certain spots but for the most part they work fine.

    This guys are described as like upscaled Deluxes. They should be just fine then.

    I actually kind of forgot about Toyfair. I've got more things to keep my attention until then. :)  But, I just wish he wasn't as HUGE. Not Metroplex size, but a more managable 15/18 inches or so.

    I will cry tears of joy over a CW Computron, it is by far my most played toy of all of my transformers that I have, admitted I don't own many but this one has fond childhood memories as well as Scattershot being a gift for my birthday from my grandfather, that you do not forget.
    So yes to Computron, 1000x yes.

    I will make sure to clear my schedule for that day. If we do see Devy this toy fair, it will mean months of waiting and day dreaming.

    The arms could be done with the hollow leg idea they have for the current CW figures. Seeing they are this huge they could easily be inside the vehicles. Like in the upper torso of the bot, flip it out. Just saying.

    That's possible, though there'd need to be a panel covering those parts, given they're black forearms.

    Guess we'll see though.

    Agreed. The fact we're getting this is just extraordinary.

    Sounds like a great combination.

    Yeah though the option that the tracks are his new forearms is a high chance too, tracks should be black, even though the constructicons are known for their high on green color scheme, and a little purple.

    The IDW comics give a good idea of how that would look, without interfering too much with the overall look of him compared to his original G1 self, face it it does not have to be a 100% acurate form.

    I finally saw the rest of the new Scooby Doo Lego I wanted to see. Now that that's done, now the only thing I want to see at Toy Fair is Devastator. Unless they show me Combiners that will make my mouth water or RID Warrior Jazz.
