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.
Back in 2010!
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.
