Transformers Colombia, a Facebook fan page, has provided two images of the upcoming Titan Class Combiner Wars Devastator, courtesy of group member Felipe León Nájera. This time he's being held in hand so you can get a rough idea of his scale, which looks to be massive! You'll notice it's badly mis-transformed and missing parts, but neither of those are enough to detract from the awesome in the pics.

We've mirrored the images below:

Mr. U.S. President, I regret to inform you that your Devastator is horribly mistransformed.

Honestly, is there any other company on Earth that is this lazy when trying to showcase new products? Do car manufacturers present their latest models at expos with the doors installed backwards? Does Microsoft unveil laptops with all the keys arranged upside-down?

These are children's toys for goodness sake, it's not rocket surgery to follow the instructions to Transform them properly! The average consumer might look at that display, think it looks hideous and simply move on, needlessly costing Hasbro money and drawing unfair criticism to their designers. Yes, this Devastator is clearly a design for older fans, but you'd think they'd want to draw in as many younger fans as possible... It's simply not gonna happen if they have crappy displays like that!

I love laughing at the ridiculous mistransformations in the "professional" stock photography as much as the next guy (that recent Combiner Wars Hot Spot was a cracker!), but come on... Have some pride in your products, Hasbro!

This thing looks terrible! Look at the hollowness of Mixmaster, and the thinness of the plastic. Isn't this figure around the same price as MP Starsaber?

I don't know... to be fair the difficulty ratings on Transformers is INSANE since the 80's... Add in the fact that the instructions are often just poorly angled pictures leaving it up to interpretation what you're doing...

I'm getting better at these puzzlebots, and I doubt he'll be as tough as the Masterpiece primes or some of the 3pp stuff, but even Skydive's shoulders I just realized they were supposed to rotate back in jet mode.

.... Well, those SIX figures are the same price as Starsaber... ;)

I never would have expected 6 figures to be of masterpiece quality and as large as small child and still only cost what one of them cost...

It's still a comparasion between the $100+ or the $500+ 3P figures... And at that outlook I'm still looking forward to it :KREMZEEK:

True dat. It looks like something bought in a beach shop to amuse toddlers in the sand. It's getting to the point where the budget wannabe transforming toys like Roadbots are looing much more impressive than the real deal. I mean, just look at those shitty clip-on wheels on Devastator. They look ugly, cheap and fragile.

This also happens to be 4x bigger than a Roadbot.

Its massive, and oh no very hollow. look at the bottom of the feet. Devastator might even crumple under his own weight.

I know I'm not the first to comment on the mistransfomation, but it is so bad, that I feel justified in adding my two cents, as well.

There is mistransformations, and there is this. What the smeg in hell is this? At least in most mistransformations, the result is still functional and there is only an effect on the aesthetics of the product. But what was whoever assembled this thing smoking?

First of all, if the end result cannot even stand up on its own, you need to maybe go back and give it another crack.

And secondly... what is going on with his left arm? How does that even look remotely like an arm? These don't strike me as the most complex toys ever, yet that alleged arm is just a total mish-mash of just randomly positioned parts splayed any which way but the one way they should be. It almost seems like pure luck that the connecter joint ended up in an accessible location.

Seriously...?

The more pictures that come out for this set, the less and less thrilled I am. My purchase outlook on this set has gone from "hell yes!", to "probably not". :-(

It's called standards, which the Old Spice guy here obviously doesn't have. Klaus would have never allowed himself to be photographed with a Devastator in such disarray....
I miss Klaus.

As for Devastator, I want to see him properly transformed and combined before judgment, even if its size is impressive.

Sir, if you were the one who Transformed that, you suck at transforming these guys.

Metroplex had his initial release through BBTS at BotCon, followed by retail at TRU.
He was then released to and sold by Amazon and HTS. Costco had him as a Christmas special item. Target did not carry him at all, regardless of what people or their website might have said. Wal*Mart.com did carry him, but the stores did not.

Mainly due to his size and price point. He was never exclusive to anyone, it's just that no one really wanted to carry him in a B&M store, aside from TRU. Considering how well he sold at their stores and the apparently limited numbers, it felt like he was an exclusive at least.



Great detective work. I was really foggy on the Target. Also there was the SDCC exclusive Metroplex with the nice box/packaging. The $200 price point was too rich for my blood.

Oh ya, and nm the above pic of Devy, he's just drunk. Rough night, poor quality energon u know?? :P

I still wanna get this guy even though the picture looked bad. I can't wait 10 more years for a MP version, IF they even do it at all. Hmmmm, if i knew for sure, maybe I'd wait, I dunno.

And wait for some reviews before I go out and pay for Devastator. I'm worried about the hollowness and the plastic quality. This guy is gonna cost and I want to know if he's worth it.

Sweet Primus, what have you done? You've mistransformed him. Look what your careless hands have wrought. Without tabs, this thin plastic cannot support it's weight. Each movement this unnatural best lives is like a thousand years of misery.

Look at it's red optics. It longs for death.

Select the hammer, then select the Devastator. :P
