Ow man, this looks insanely awesome =P~ :x :APPLAUSE:

But considering what the price eventually will be and then shipping it all to Europe, I can't see it will be ever affordable for me :BOOM:

I hope I'll get lucky in the lotery :lol:

these are looking really cool the more the pictures come out. by the looks of the crane its going to actually be a working crane with the cable drum at the base of the crane. i wonder what class they will be because going by the size either duluxe or heres a long shot maybe voyager but thatwould make devastator gigantic

These are looking so Awesome! Based on the 1st one we saw and the looks of this one, I believe they all will be Voyager class. I hope they take their time and do the detail cause this is shaping up to be the most awesome Devastator ever made! This will fit in excellent with Classics figures based on it's combiner size.... eeeek! :)

Nice. But how many TFC's are there.

You got TFC (Fun pub) and TFCC (Duluxe Overkill and Dragstrip) and now thesse guys who call themselves TFClub. Is it that hard to come up with a distinctive name ??? They do awesome work, but I never heard of em before. What other figures have they made in the past ???

TFCC - the official collectors club by Fun Publications

TFC Toys- fan based third party group. Responsible for the Gear of War Accessory sets.

The special edition Overkill, Dragstip, Megatron, and Optimus Prime weren't associated with either. I believe they were foreign exclusives that were made available thru HTS.

Based on the now old photo of a guy holding not-Scavenger in arm mode, I'd say voyager class could be a pretty good guess. Wow. Devastator is going to be so big he'll be able to use Supreme class Primus to clean out his audio receptors.

It's just in the prototype stage right now. No preorders have opened up yet, but hopefully they will be available through the regular online retailers BBTS, TFsource, etc..

My money's on Deluxe Class. Scavenger didn't look all that big in relation to the guy's hand and some other stuff on his work bench in the robot mode pics.

This may be the combiner that defines how all combiners are made from here on out.

I'm very interested to see this figure (and Devastator) fully painted and assembled.

Haha, yea I agree with you guys, this is defintiely worth the high price it might be. I can't say no to an awesome combiner, let alone a Devastator that, hopefully, intergrates every part like FP Bruticus, and maybe even better, hehe. I hope QC is good, coz thats where the money should be goin towards. God, i'm gonna need more space on my shelves, 2010 is the year of the Transformers.

I'm hoping Voyager Class for sheer size and quality while hoping Deluxe Class for price point.

Fansproject's not-Swindle and not-Blast-off sell for about $50.00/$60.00 each and both of them were Scout Class size. However, with the additional pieces that came with each one, that might have bumped them up into a Deluxe Class category.

Taking that into account, it's possible each one of these Third Party not-Constructicons could cost about $75.00/$100.00 each. Once this is all said and done and all six not-Constructicons are finished and set up for pre-order, I'll be surprised if a complete set of six sells for less than $750.00. And I haven't even calculated shipping by the time these are completed. So you could be looking at about $1000.00 price tag when you get the bill.

If they space em out to atleast 2 months between each, it'll be way easier to handle. When it all comes out together, people snatch em up and your screwed for gettin one, so... hopefully.

I am waiting on more information, pics, and perhaps the gallery of this combiner before I make my decision.

I'd rather they sell them as a complete set. If they sell them one at a time, 2 months a part, you stand a greater chance of not getting one of them. You know there would be that one jerk out there that would buy up all the not-Scrappers. That same jerk would then try to sell each one of his not-Scrappers for the price of a complete set, knowing that there are those of us that have the other 5 not-Constructicons, but unable to stand not-Devastator up because all of its right legs are sold out. And we'd pay that price that jerk is selling them for just so we could stand up our not-Devastator, the crown jewel of all our Transformers collections.

For my own selfish impatient reasons I would love for it to come out as one big set, but I realize the price tag would just be too much for a lot collectors. I'm curious how far along they are in this project and how close we are to seeing preorders.
