So do I buy Encore Devastator with my extra TF money and hope Hasbro & Maketoys do RID Scourge, or buy this?

Tough decision. At least I have 2010 Primus covered.

I dunno.. not sure if I'm sold or not. I wonder how this will stack up with City commander since it's damn near the same concept. Like someone said, I like the set but the figure not so much..The 3 that I bought seem to be very floppy making some of these dynamic poses sort of impossible..grrrrrrrr Why does all of this 3rd party stuff have to be so irresistable :BANG_HEAD:

NO,Thanks,This thing doesn't grow that much in height. Their is a comparision pic of this thing in full robot trailer armor next to generations deluxe size Drift. this battle tanker next to deluxe drift is only a 1/4 of a inch taller from toe to head.

Personally such a waste,in combined trailer armor robot mode it's still deluxe size. they had all the battle tanker parts to use. they could have had the trailer parts form a lower leg/shin. instead of just a raised foot.

IMHO,Paying $100 for this to get a STILL DELUXE COMBINED TOY makes ZERO sense.

At the very least the PROTECTOR armor did actually make the classics rodimus toy add about 1 & 1/2 inches in height. the protector armor did make the toy grow from deluxe to voyager size.

The city commander armor made classics ultra magnus go from a voyager sized toy to a ultra sized 8+inch sized robot mode.

Height does not a voyager toy make, but sheer mass instead. If you're looking for height, then this isn't for you. Wait for that Powermaster Prime upgrade that someone is making.

if you want to take a figure which was not the best in its line, give it a trailer THAT TURNS INTO AN EXOSUIT, and give him the ability to light up a MASSIVE sword, then this is for you.

This isn't a EXO-SUIT. A exo-suit is something a figure slips inside of.

This battle tanker is more defined as a parts-former or Trailer armor that splits up in armor pieces for the robot mode to wear.

A exo-suit in toy terms is defined as such: something more similar to the DOTM Ultimate optimus prime toy. Something similar to the Takara Brave 1990 King Exkaiser,the MP King Exkaiser. those Avatator exo-suits. all these things have robots that slip inside a exo-suit.

I read a thread last week. that only the japanese limited edition version comes with the light up sword. I could be wrong on this but I could have sworn I read the mass released 2nnd shipment & so forth won't include the light up sword.
