    Saw this in my local TF whatsapp group.
    Don't know whether if it is true or not.

    Looks like an edited pic of newage devastator

    Could be an upscale KO of the Newage set

    Probably just a KO of the Newage combiner blown up in MP scale? The Newage bots are mostly solid (mostly) for the size they are but some major adjustments need to be made if they want to blow them up to MP scale.

    I may be into MP sized NewAge Constructions if this is real. I do like the way they look.

    The individuals will need heavy modifications to look good at mp scale. At legends scale, engineering is at times simplified due to size, and some joints and gaps are a lot more permissible because they pill off so much in a tiny package. A lot of OSKOs often make whatever they KO'd bigger with minimal changes. In the case of Legends figures, all those shortcomings excusable at a tiny scale are blown up tenfold. I wouldn't be terribly excited until we saw it in hand to see what changes have been made, especially if it wants to shoot for slavishly toon accurate. Toon accurate is great for those who want that, but it almost always comes at a price. Something gets compromised.

    Look if it's cheap and looks decent I might bite, but I wouldn't go wild just yet. Heavy emphasis on might because the entire torso being partsforming frustrates me immensely.

    I just saw a review of the NewAge Devastator and while it looks great and well articulated, the parts forming bothers me. I know combiners are technically parts formers, but this one has a huge part of the torso that's a shell for other robots to plug into. That's just so weird. Otherwise, a MP scale of those might not be a bad idea.

    That is one long ass mixer lol.
    And scrapper looks…. Like stilts? They stole the top half, made minor modifications (I see the cab on hook is a tad wider) … and then screwed the pooch on the only parts they designed. Award winnning pooch-screwery…like beastiality level achievement unlocked.

    I don't think they even designed anything for real, that looks like some lazy ass Photoshop.

    Never Pre order till you see a physical prototype. Preferably in color and next to a real figure.

    Looks like you take apart Scrapper and Mixmaster. So, ugly romper body, faux parts, AND individual character partsforming? All the passes.

    I don't understand why they bothered changing the legs. I definitely don't dig how they handled Scrapper (I don't give a shit about the partsforming, though).

    But at the same time, Devastator is shaping up to be the only hole in my Season 1 through TFTM collection, since I'm terrified of buying a Constructor that will probably crumble under its own weight. So I'm kind of desperate.

    I think I'd rather have upscale of the MS Constructicons just for the individual bots. Keeping Toyworld as my combined form. Still, I'll keep an eye on this

    Oh wait, I guess that foot design for Scrapper is the way it was in the cartoon.

    I guess I can't complain, then. Toon accuracy > all.
