still, if they did happen to fall into hot water, i'm pretty sure the large toy company would win...... i mean if they REALLY wanted to they could probably sue most third party companies out of existence....

They could (maybe, this is China) but in the process they'd go bankrupt.

If they even tried to go after the 3P market, they'd not only most likely lose, but they'd probably lose exclusive rights to the Transformers brand. Whether or not you agree with that being a good thing is up to you, but I would just like to point out that the US copyright system is only in the ridiculous state it is today because a certain mouse-loving corporation refuses to allow a nearly hundred-year-old cartoon to go into the public domain.

Now I doubt that HasTak and Maketoys will come to blows because again, it's a known fact that HasTak and 3Ps are fairly chill with each other and have numerous "gentlemen's agreements" but if sparks DID fly it wouldn't be that cut and dried.


actually, maketoys is one of the very few 3p company that, while the product stamp itself said made in china, the company itself is located in japan. which means, whiel they are out of hasbro's reach, takara could actually pull something off. altough takara so far sees no reason to sue them, as they didn't hurt the official market that much. and as long as maketoys don't sue them for this giant-inspired devy, there's no reason for takara to make a move. and i don't think maketoys will do that either. they are not stupid to wake a sleeping tiger.

I don't think Maketoys has a leg to stand on. I mean not only is Giant obviously inspired by Devy, but this statue shares no actual moulding with Giant. It just looks like him, same way Giant looks like Devy.

As someone who own Giant and pairs him with the official Combiner Wars stuff, I think it's cool that it's look inspired this.

New Image of Upcoming Imaginarium Art Devastator

Weapon: Hand-Mounted Lasers
Just under two weeks ago, Imaginarium Art shared a few images of their current project, a licensed Devastator statue first revealed in February this year. Now they're back again, with another image of the Constructicon combiner from their Facebook page!

While the original renders showed a vastly different design, and recent images of the revamped design only revealed his torso, right arm (Scavenger) and lower legs, this new picture gives us a much better look at everything from his waist up! There's also a hint of something being beaten up in the lower-right corner, though it's not yet clear what - or who - this poor punching-bag is.

What do you think about this new, more dynamic look at the statue? Will you be going all-in on this green giant, or staying away from the construction zone this time around? Share your thoughts below - and as always, don't forget to stay tuned to Seibertron.com for any updates on this or anything else Transformers!

Constructicons! merge for the kill!

Shame I have neither the money, space nor inclination to buy this because it looks amazing and it's based on my favourite Devastator design (Giant). But as is...nah.

More Imaginarium Art Transformers Statue Images: Devastator Legs and Coronation Throne

Postby Va'al » Wed Nov 15, 2017 5:21 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
After the last couple of images seen from Imaginarium Art and their latest endeavour in licensed Transformers statues (of a vaguely G1 style), we have another update concerning their Devastator project! We've seen his torso at least twice so far - latest was here - and it's now time to head for the feet, it seems, via their official Facebook page.

Along with Scrapper and Mixmaster in their leg modes and grey prototype colours, we also get to look at the base design, with parts of city demolished and askew under the might of the greatest Decepticon combiner. Take a look for yourselves, and let us know what you think of this high-end collectible statue. Does it have a place in you heart and house? Or is just too much?

Additionally, we also have a shot of the Coronation Throne made out of shells for the Shanghai Comic Con exclusive Starscream statue, as last seen here, and also included below. Check them both out!

Prepare to meet your doom! Nothing can withstand the might of Devastator!
