Greetings Seibertronians! Hot from the reveal of Studio Series Devastator this weekend at Wonder Festival 2020 [Winter], fellow Seibertron user, MadProject, has pointed our optics over to the Transformers Official Instagram account who have sent out their own picture of Devy, with one major difference. In this picture, Devastator has a yellow leg. This is our first look at Skipjack, the new name for the yellow rampage, seen in the Revenge of the Fallen movie.

As much as I hate the Bayformers, that actually looks interesting. Whether or not its interesting enough to burn cash on remains to be seen. >:oP

Since there are multiples of many of the RotF constrcticons, there's a potential for many more releases as alternate parts for Devastator. I'd still maybe like to see 2 alternate deluxes for the right arm giving us a 9 component Devastator instead of 8.

He looks good with either a red or yellow leg.

I hope SS goes on long enough to give us a Demolishor in addition to Skipjack, and maybe through in a Payload and someone else in there too, alternate options.

Gosh I love this line

First time I've noticed Hightower's head and neck being used as a thumb. Looks a little silly, mine might go thumbless or maybe I'll just pop his head off...

Hope it's possible to turn Scrapper over without affecting the elbow, otherwise his thumb and fingers end up reversed.

Hightower's hook is supposed to be attached behind his head to make a proper clawed thumb, it isn't in that images

The combined duo are pretty flexible. I've seen quite a few combined arm options with one of Scrapmetal's "figures" turned around and used as a thumb or the treads/legs used as thumbs.

Even with the claw mounted the official way the head is still there looking derpy.

Since we have some visual confirmation of Skipjack, hopefully we’ll see him and Sentinel at NYTF. I’m looking forward to seeing Devastator in the more usual hunched-over pose.

Also tried recreating SS-49 Bumblebee’s pose on the box art!

Same here. If we do get Skipjack, I can have Bumblebee fighting Rampage as a display.

I'm still trying to figure out how a giant yellow killer robot tractor got named after a tuna.

"Skipping Jackhammer" :P

Hasbro sometimes is a bit... oblivious when it comes to names?

Redeco Hightower into Hook.

Retool Mixmaster into his alternate-headed version and name him after Quickmix.

Redeco Overload in purple and name him after Frontloader.

Redeco Scrapper in red and name him after Buckethead.

Redeco Scrapmetal (here's the fun one) in an all new blue and red deco with the name "Rumble" in honor of Cybertron Scrapmetal's Japanese name (and as a fun mockery of the FIRRIB/RIRFIB debate by giving him both colors). ;)

I so need and want those two final Constructicons. This might be the most ambitious combiner I've ever seen from Transformers, and from all appearances, unless there's something majorly bad, they'll have stuck the landing, too. Nice job, designers! :-D :michaelbay:

My biggest concern is I don't think this will be able to hunch. I have Mixmaster coming in the mail so I can see how he connects to Scavenger then, but I am not sure if the head can angle up much more, he is already looking way down when standing up right. I really hope there is a way to make it work because Devastator needs to be on all fours.

Assuming overload is the red one, what kind of construction equipment is he supposed to be exactly?

An articulated frontloader.

Don't front loaders normally have scoops? Looks more like a flat bed / dump truck hauling a big round thing. I really hope that part can be removed or collapse.

I got my wires crossed. He's an articulated dump truck. Specifically a modified Komatsu HD465-7.

Ah cool that it's based on a real vehicle. They all look plausible, but are all the SS Constructicon toys based on real life vehicles? Those giant construction vehicles can get pretty crazy.

I'm only 2/8 of the way in and I have no concrete plans to finish or not finish Devastator. The combined figure they just showed off sure isn't doing a good job selling it to me. I do find the individual ones that are monster-like a lot of fun and may continue to pick them up on whims and sales.

So I know what that is, the Red one, WIth them using names that aren't original constructicons I'm fully going to admit to not knowing who is who.

I'm talking about long red truck with what looks like part of a space bridge on the end.
