Devcon is receiving his first ever figure in the form of a Generations Deluxe Scourge retool/repaint! Devcon made his initial appearance in the original G1 Transformers cartoon episode The Gambler, as an Autobot bounty hunter. Check out the images mirrored below:

Excellent choice of mold, fantastic colors, and cool head sculpt so far. Can't complain about this one, even if it isn't all that surprising.

this looks pretty darn good, so that's 2 out of 3 for the set so far.

He prefers the term "tramp stamp".

This is more like what I expect to get from the Club and BotCon. Not Ferak and not a Cannonball update to a toy from 9 years ago that was a filler character. Devcon was long overdue and this looks better than Devcon from the Energon Slugslinger mold. Hopefully this leads to a proper closer-to-show-accuracy Devcon from Hasbro at some point but in the meantime, I can't wait to put this guy next to Smokescreen at long last.

Wow, I was joking and poking fun at his fans, but it turns out I was right? :BOOM:

He looks pretty good.

Question to all of you who squeed like fangirls over getting Devcon. Will he be staying in the BotCon set, or will he be displayed with G1 figures or at least Generations figures, since he's a very accurate representation of the character?
Re: BotCon 2014 Cybertronian Knight Devcon Revealed (1559811)

He'd go with my G1 toys, like Darkmount\Straxus did.

So far this is my first "keeper", Cannonball and Ferak are eBay bound.

I had very little interest in this set until I saw this figure. I like it better than Scourge, really.

I wonder if the pirates will all be lesser known obscure dudes while the knights are all bigger name dudes like Devcon here.

You want to trade a kidney or a lung for a TFCC toy? I call dibs.

I second this. I literally had the exact same reaction. And it also has me wondering if we may see a Devcon as part of the generations line in the future, for all of us that aren't able to spend hundreds on the box.
