Seven? Does he know something I don't?
For the amount of money asked for this figure, it should really be perfect. In my opinion it nearly is. It's definately a lot better than I think everyone was expecting. The only other TFClub figures I own are Hot Flame and Screamer, and I was worried the plastic was going to be the same as those figures. Not the case. Vastly superior plastic used on this thing.
Another big worry for me was the colours seen in promotional photos. The green looked alright, but the purple looked more Cybertron blue. In reality, it is most definately purple.
What I really don't like is the torturous eight month wait to complete the set.
I picked up mine at the post office today, as I wasn't home yesterday when they tried to deliver and I was needed to sign for it.
There's only supposed to be SIX (Not)Constructicons and it even says SIX on the outside of the box. I'm not sure where the video reviewer got the number SEVEN, unless he was counting the amount of Legend sized Constructicons it took to construct Devastator when those Legend Constructicons were released at Wal-Mart. But then again, he did refer to (Not)"Scavenger" as (Not)"Scrapper."
All in all it's an amazing toy made of thick, hardy, quality plastic, despite what the video reviewer said. It's really cool that the giant right hand of (Not)Devastator is stored on (Not)Scavenger during Robot Mode and Steam Shovel Mode.
It's a done deal with me that I will be getting the rest of the (Not)Constructicons, especially with them being Voyager size, towering over many of my Classics/Generations figures. Although I hope before (Not)Long Haul is released we get to see a colorized version of him as opposed to the gray clay-colored version being posted now. Of course, that goes for all of the (Not)Constructicons. Sure, I'll have less food in my refrigerator and kitchen cabinets, but I could stand to lose a few pounds. But at least each one is being released at least a month apart so you can save up for each one:
* Exgraver (Not-Scavenger) - Out now
* Heavylabor (Not-Long Haul) - September 2011
* Structor (Not-Scrapper) - November 2011
* Dr. Crank (Not-Hook) - December 2011
* Neckbreaker (Not-Bonecrusher) - March 2012
* Mad Blender (Not-Mixmaster) - April 2012
Once you get (Not)Scavenger and then (Not)Long Haul, you have to wait TWO WHOLE MONTHS to get (Not)Scrapper with (Not)Hook following a month later. Then to test your patience even more, my padawan, you have to wait THREE WHOLE MONTHS before getting (Not)Bonecrusher and then a month later, (Not)Mixmaster.
One problem I have at this point is that we've yet to see a WIP Model of (Not)Bonecrusher and (Not)Mixmaster. I'd rather see both of them or even a fully combined (Not)Devastator before investing in them, but I also don't want to be the one to come up with $600+ when I see all six (Not)Constructicons shown off here on this site because I've waited too long to order them. The fear here is those who have waited until all are released to order all six, you may not be able to get (Not)Scavenger or (Not)Long Haul as they'll be sold out.
I admit, $100.00 a piece is extremely expensive for these guys. But do you want to be that collector that waits until all are released and you see just how cool the (Not)Constructicons are fully combined into (Not)Devastator, wishing you had invested in these guys? You'll see them displayed here on this site and you'll wish you had bought each one when it came out as opposed to waiting to buy all six at a time, for a whopping $600.00+. And that's if you're lucky enough to find all six because you'll likely run into the problem of not being able to get the first one or the third one. Or some turd out there will have the one you need (because he knew someone would wait too late to buy these guys) to complete your (Not)Devastator and he'll sell it to you for $250, $300, or even $500. Just something to think about.
