New Gallery: SDCC 2015 Combiner Wars Devastator

DEVASTATOR!!! - This is it, the gallery you've been waiting for... SDCC 2015 Combiner Wars Devastator! Still unsure about Devastator? Still unsure about the bling the SDCC version is rockin'? Well check out our newest gallery to help you decide! (I have the retail version in hand and I must say it's worth the money, so while I can't say much about the chrome, I'd imagine if you're an SDCC junkie, this guy is perfect for you!) Before we head onto the gallery, make note of the special edition packaging, chrome accents and G1 toy accurate paint apps used to match those of the sticker sheet that came with the original many moons ago.

Diaclone!!! - The latest offering in the galleries in the post-BotCon 2015 weeks features some more Diaclone homages in the shape of Burn-Out and Lift-Ticket, and their pilots. These two figures are the previously 'leaked', so to speak', redecos of Generations Skids and Hoist, the former featuring a black paintjob, and the latter sporting a full red makeover - and the pilots, Dia and Cline, are repurposed from the Targetmasters that came with deluxe Scoop, Holepunch and Caliburst.
