Oh yes... THAT's the one I want (unfortunately, considering I have a perfectly good original version).

Is it just me or does Devastator look really happy in the close-up shot of his head?

He must have multiple-personality disorder. He's all screaming and yelling in one version... and grinning mildly in another.

It would be nice if the set had both heads, but guessing it doesn't. (?)

Wow. Looks good. Looks like they even nailed the color on those soft-plastic canopy bits. Bravo.

Looks nice... but I've already got my vintage Devastator and the recent reissue. So, pass for me.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

But then I wouldn't have to transform them, and where's the fun in that? ;)

It's a nice variance, but the head shouldn't be grimmicing. Is the purple/blue a little darker than the original? And is this being sold as store/retailer exclusive?

OK guys, Unicrondd had put out of the pics of Encore20A as well as Encore20 vs 20A:

20A really looks magnificent! I really love how they give the finish touch to those little constructicon and Devastator faces.

Agreed. And more than not needing another, I have zero interest in dropping another hundo-something on it. But I'll happily trade someone a MIB Encore-20 for the 20A. ;)

Teh colors are more yellow than I expected. No wonder why this was original mislabeled as G2 in the preorders.
