It would be easier to swallow CD upgrades if they came in sets instead of nickel and diming us to death with all these little add-ons and never knowing if a set is complete or not (will they do new fists? A new head? New feet? Who the hell knows? Do CD even know?).

Actually they did make a new head for the guy.

You know, I'm sick of preview art, but when it comes to Crazy Devy and their stupid piecemeal releases spread over .... what? A decade? They should just release some damned art to let people know what they're getting into.

Agreed, or at least actually wait until all upgrades are complete and release them all together in a single set.

There's actually just one problem with that. Many of their upgrades are unnecessary / badly sculpted.

Take Herc. I bought their overpriced purple barrel because, damn it, I want a purple barrel. But I don't want their oversize gun or badly sculpted head. And all together that's $65. Also, look at G1 Devvy upgrade, my most regretted purchase. There's a ton of unneeded upgrades there. I think the legs and head are the only ones that really help G1 Devestator look good. If I could do it all over again, that's all I'd buy. The last few add-ons were especially unnecessary; I wouldn't want them in a package just for the head and legs. So I'm actually down with picking and choosing with these guys.

That said, buying these guys has become a lesson in regret, leaps of faith, and extreme amounts of patience.

Yep, that makes sense. I'd still like the option to buy them all (at a significant discount) in a single package once all of them have been released.

Anyone else has a G1 Menasor who leans forward? I cannot figure out if ti is mine, or if it is a problem with all originals. Thanks!

Hows the quality on the purple barrel ? I got it and the G1 head waiting in my pile of loot. I know you dont like their head, but I like how it looks from the pics at least. I want that cartoon look. I dont really care about the whole "neo" thing.

I actually want the cartoon look too, but I don't like the way they went about making it. I think it's poorly sculpted and overpriced. Plus I feel really burned on their G1 Devestator kit.

The purple barrel is decent, but one of the parts doesn't align 100% properly, just 90%. Mighta just gotten a dud, though. But it does it's job and it's not noticeable unless you look for it. It's just the skin of the barrel, so don't expect a complete item. If yr set on a purple barrel and stickers just don't cut it for you, but it.

Upgrades for G1 Devastator are all right, IMHO, because with his design you can add articulation to him, with the hips, elbows and waist. With the other G1 combiners... not nearly as much.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.
