That does not look like Devcon's head. http://www.seibertron.com/transformers- ... 3366/1/45/ http://news.tfw2005.com/wp-content/uplo ... 0002-1.jpg (better shot of the head)

Devcon has odd, pouty lips, this toy has normal lips. The ends on Devcon's helmet curve inwards while this has the normal shape for Scourge. The lazer on Devcon's head is different than that of this toy (the Sweeep has a hole with light piping, Devcon does not). The Sweep has light piping, Devcon does not (I haven't taken it apart, but it looks like the eyes are sculpted on the face). From the side of the Devcon toy you can really see the difference.

I mean the head really looks like Devcon's. But if it is, they didn't derive it from the Botcon version.

You are correct, that is Devcon's head, but not from the BotCon set. I noticed back at Toy Fair that the "gun" on his head is different, but it really is an entirely new head. I doubt it's a pre-tool either, otherwise BotCon would have used it. Maybe there's an official Devcon in our future? I'd buy a set of him, Smokescreen, and a cartoon accurate Astrotrain.

Can anyone confirm?

:MAXIMAL:


Its been said a while back why he looks so similar. To make chromedome, Takara started with CW Dead End and copied some of the engineering but added a lot of new parts and transformation steps (like feet and a headmaster). So its based on that design but only as a base, its doesnt use any aspect of that initial mold. So its not technically a retool.

You know, it's kinda hard to keep track of posts when half the news staff is linking stuff to this topic and the other is linking to the Titans Return topic... :BANG_HEAD:

Seibertron.com is no longer stuck in the hotel room! As we browsed the Hasbro area at BotCon 2016 in Louisville, and took some initial shots of the products on display prior to the new reveals, we also took some video coverage of the display cases - which you can check out below.

Included in each, respectively, are the Generations Alt Modes line, Robots in Disguise, including Windblade, Bisk, Ratchet and Mini-cons, Victorion, G2 Bruticus, Titans Return and more, as we've already seen in the galleries here, here, here, here and here. But take a look at them in motion, accompanied by British commentary from yours truly!

I loved that titans return segment with Optimus narrating the Trilogy so far. Neat! :MAXIMAL:

Good job keeping the camera steady, man. My arms would have been shaking holding that thing still for seven minutes. ;)^

He's right, you know.

I mean yes. On the one hand, it's all on the same show floor and it's easy to make comparisons across lines since they're all there. "Oh Chromedome looks great but man, did you see Bisk?"
On the other hand we have individual topics for all of these lines and the information should be there as well.

Afraid not. :( That's a panel from spotlight: metroplex. sixshot chases the throttlebots to the planet where metroplex is hiding and he saves them by smashing sixshot into the ground.

Please feel free to post links to the main stories in the various threads! I personally do not have the physical time to do so right now.

Scratch that, just moved things into their existing threads.

Only need to move Victorion and Platinum stuff. :D
Off to Hasbro panel soon, be ready for hopefully lots of STUFF and THINGS.
