Interesting.. I wonder if the Devy upgrades will start pouring out in yellow. I'll buy this if I can get the upgrades.

otherwise not interested, they can be found, cheaper quality at Walgreens for 15$, and display the same way.

This image sums up my thoughts perfectly.

I hope that e-Hobby/Takara have worked with Hasbro to reuse the G2 packaging that Hasbro's marketing/packaging team created for the upcoming FOC G2 Bruticus. If we get an actual G2 reissue, this would give credence for me holding out hope for the past 15 years for a G2 reissue of the G2 Stunticons and G2 Protectobots at some point. I was really disappointed that something hasn't been done for these yet.

Depends on your definition of "display the same way". I would never have cheap knock offs, or any knock offs for that matter, on display in my collection.

It seems to be G-2 galore for Takara Tomy. :lol: Because we are getting that for Devastor, and wonder if the same will be done for either the Encore Bruticus or his Generations version. :-? Either way, I am glad that they are doing a metallic paint version of the SDCC set. 8)

I am wondering the same thing. Because while I have been trying to figure out what I need to seek out for my collection, I have been reading why people buy KOs as temporary pieces... And others buy major third-party pieces. So what he means by that intrigues me as well. :???:

Whoopidy-Doo... Took them long enough. Now give me a G2 Bruticus, and while you're at it, make Encore 20 B the orange versions of the Constructicons please.
