    Would it be easier to paint them green?
    Maybe take another (green) piece of constructor to a hobby shop and see if they can find a close color match.
    EDIT: Or take it to a home improvement store that sells paints

    IF I recall correctly, someone who did just that here said that an off the shelf lime green color by rustoleum/krylon or similar common brand sold at walmart and other big box stores is a close match...

    Nice one. I'd not spotted the extra treads in the sprue packet. Embarrassing, but at least it's sorted out. Ta muchly.

    From TheChosenPrime this morning. Packed differently than my other constructors, plastic clamshell with extra pieces just kind of laying on the plastic in the box.

    Looks like they tried to get the box as small as possible due to increased shipping costs. The foam inner added a lot of dimension.

    Well, after finally getting a bit of free time to combine the jolly green giant, I can finally see what all the fuss is about. He's nice. Really bloody nice. I can see why some people consider him to be the gold standard of combiners, and despite some flaws, I am very pleased with the results. To celebrate, here is a terrible photo.

    because it's a money printer and they'll know we'll all buy it if they move the RGB sliders 5% every 12 months.

    I love constructor and have two, but I would really love it if someone made a more cartoon accurate Devastator. By that I mean more the individual modes and Constructor pretty much nails the combined mode.

    Man, still wish I had caught these guys at $300. Always miss these dam sales and am always around when they stop them.

    Don’t give up. He pops up every now and then. And I’ll bet money that TW has not stopped making iterations of him and improving him so for sure people might sell their current set to maybe upgrade. Just a hunch. LOFL!

    That's what I'm hoping for. I'm building my collection around the G1 Toon aesthetic and I really want a toon accurate devastator. I know Fanstoys teased a silhouette, maybe they'll announce something during TFCon later this month.

    Honestly I hope it isn't FT that does one. I have what they have put out of their superion and I'm super disappointed with them. Between the very basic or lack there of articulation and their price jump. It seems they did a much better job with the Menasor bots, but I went XTB there. Their non combiner figures have been all over the place with articulation and price as well lately.

    Doesn't have to be FansToys, I just know they teased it. I haven't heard of any the other major players discussing Devi. I went in on the XTB Stunticons and I'm pretty happy with them so wouldn't be disappointed if they took a shot. Also got MMC's Bruticus which I really like the bot/alt modes, even though I'm not super happy with the scale of Bruticus.
