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.

After Giant, Hercules, Kreon, and the standard Takara re-release; not to mention copious amounts of add-on kibble - Devastator isn't allowed to have any more of my money!

But Devastator has 10 protoforms to support and his royalties are shit.

TRUE! After this guy, I'm capped out on Devastators.

Wish we could get these reissues stateside...

I wish that they had released this version first. I really have no need for another one.

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.

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?

Hmmm I may not be able to pass up on this one.

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. ;)
