    My anger burns hotter than a thousand suns at Hasbro.

    Takara one-ups us Americans, yet again.

    Please Takara, buy out Hasbro! Get the yakuza involved, I don't care! I have had enough of their corner-cutting BS as far as TFs are concerned.

    No, I'm not bitter...not one bit. No sir...

    Wow this is AWESOME!

    Okay, I usually try to be nice, but I have to tell all the people who made stupid moronic comments about how something like this was not possible how IDIOTIC, SHORTSIGHTED and MORONIC you were! You rememember who you all are. When that ToyFair thread was going you were saying "it's not practical to have robot modes and vehicle modes that combine." BULLSHIT!!! This is AWESOME! And I said it could be done - and I even said "why not use legends class figures?" Hasbro pussied out. They suck for failing at this. Long live Takara Tomy!!!!!!

    I will totally buy this and will not buy the BS horribly STUPID version that Hasbro released. This rocks!!!

    lol That's awesome for a lot of reasons.

    I actually always thought legend combiners would be a neat concept. I wonder if they'll conceder ever doing G1 combiners in legend scale?

    so the legend version is the best version with all modes? Something doesn't compute.

    Holy crapspackle

    OK if hasbro doesn't release this they should have the license taken away from them!

    i must admit to being a secret lover of legends scale figures and the fact that here they have managed to get ALL 3 modes in... well, why not in any other size class?

    fan bloody tastic. so, who do i have to give money to to get this? hmm? anyone?

    Q

    I've found my Devastator toy :) 


    I'm sure Hasbro will release this one - Possibly as a Voyager pricepoint giftset.

    Either way, I'm buying this in favour of all the other Devastators. Not sure about how Scrapper looks connected, but the rest looks awesome, and a pretty reasonable representation of the actual Constructicons, considering they're only 2-3 inches tall each.

    That's probably why this is possible at this scale - less plastic weight for the individual units.

    Yeah, I think you may be onto something there. Maybe it honestly couldn't be done on a large scale.

    Man that thing is fricking sweet. Now if only there was a bigger one like this. But then again this could look badass, in a mini city. Or if you own the hotels board game.

    And lmao at the fact it's LEGENDS scale, and has all modes. Not only is it a one up, but it's a one up in the smallest scale possible! Now that's a tease.
    But yeah added electronics and battery weight too and all that for the big one.

    Minidevs all the way for now. He seems much more poseable too.

    This 7th construction (maybe Scavenger) could somehow fit on the Demolisher and forms the joints for the other constructicons. And perhaps that one has the instructions for the other 6. (Just wishful thinking)

    no need worry about Hasbro release,IMO,in Movie toys line,Hasbro lead the project,TakaraTomy only make some color different or variant,no Japan exclusive mold(except the nsuccessful TF1 TranScaning series).So we didn't see Hasbro version not means no Hasbro version,they just didn't reveal.
    and I can see G1 color repaint in the future
