Transformers Studio Series Devastator Review Showing Off Fully Combined Figure

Postby Bounti76 » Thu Apr 02, 2020 2:26 pm

Weapon: Vibro-Axe
Thanks to regular YouTube reviewer PrimeVsPrime, we have a highly anticipated video review to bring to you today! While we've seen all the Constructicons in individual reviews, and he teased their fully combined form in his review of Overload, we can at long last see Devastator in all his towering, terrifying glory! He does focus on each different part of the combined figure and goes over the articulation and also does some fun size comparisons.



While Mixmaster and Scavenger are the most recent figures to be released (and we've already seen Hightower, Scrapmetal, Rampage and Long Haul), most of us will have to wait a bit longer- Scrapper isn't due for several more weeks, and Overload isn't due to be released until the 4th quarter of this year.

So what do you all think? Are you excited to finally see this figure come to life? Let us know what you think below, and stay tuned to Seibertron for all your Transformers news!

I'm a little disappointed in lack of knees, but interestingly enough, the way the legs are designed give the appearance of faux knees. This is a magnificent figure in all. The details are just awesome. The only other complaint is the lack of scaling for potential Skids and Mudflap figures. However, they were pretty small as it was and I wonder if we could see a SS two-pack of those two in the same way the cycles got a three pack.
It finally happened. The Chicago Cubs won the World Series. Yes, I cried.

I would almost bet on that. Considering Camaro-Bee's size and the fact that he was at least a head or two taller than Skids and Mudflap, I don't see how they could make them single Deluxes. Also, given his actual size in the movie, Devastator isn't in true scale with anyone- either he'd have to be much bigger, or all other Studio Series figures would have to be a lot smaller.

That's what I figured. Scale is always the enemy of Transformers.

Not to mention they’d have to bump size categories up.... so is this devastator officially a Titan? Do we think he’s sold well enough Hasbro May consider other combiners (individual members) at retail again?

Considering the SS line is aimed more at collectors, I'm not sure. There is one more combiner in the movie verse, though I'd have no idea how they'd pull THAT one off...

Im not sure what combiners are left. We got all of them recently. I am really craving some new material...I want to see Transtech finally done.
