    The reissue Devastator giftset from 2018 is still a fantastic release. I knew I wouldn't find a vintage box in this condition, so the reissue was a no-brainer. Toy quality on mine is fantastic, so lush and fits together very well. Display value is off the scale, just look at it...

    ...I won't be putting the stickers on, though, as they're a touch too reflective and thin, prone to curling and peeling.

    All the best

    My son got this for Christmas and for the most part it seems to be excellent quality...most of the joints are much tighter and smoother than my G2 Devastator was as a teen. However, Scavenger's feet pop out of their sockets when rotated during transformation unless you forcefully push them toward his legs while you do it, and Hook's arms pop out of their sockets unless you use an extremely ginger amount of force to pull them out. That kind of control has been tough for my 4 yo! Have you experienced anything like this in your copy?

    I also don't know why they put those "release" triggers on the add-on pieces that barely do anything, but that's a nitpick! It's easily his favorite toy now (or at least tied with some other TFs ;)  ).

    Standing watch over my 2yo's crib while he naps (at his own request :D  ):

    Really? I thought it was just an accumulation of about 30 years worth of dust!

    A bit of both. Not as much free time as I'd like to dust everything. A makeup brush is good for that sort of thing (old one of my mom's, for the record), but I'd need to research the best way to clean off the more persistent stuff.
