I swear if the new "work in progress" set is cheaper than this, crazydevy should just stop....

Well, I appreciate their going back now that more people can get a g1 Devastator, but with MT and TFC making full on classics-grade versions, is the interest (outside the specific G1 niche) still there?

GTFO of here Crazy Devy. A whopping $36 for something that should cost even less on a second release since the R&D and mold making has been done forever. We aren't all as stupid as they seem to think we are.

I'm assuming there must be some subtle differences in the tolerances of the Encore set maybe?

Hopefully the old sets are combatible with encore as I was planning on moving them over once I got it in hand. Perhaps it's the same set and Crazy Devy is just rebranding the parts to take advantage of the encore.

I find it hard to believe that Crazy Devy got ahold of the encore set early enough to make new parts for it.

I have the entire Crazy Devy set and think people should just get the new add-on set if that's their thing. Crazy Devy's prices are just ... crazy.

I have to admit, I dunno if there's still a market for this. I wanted these upgrades to have a decent Neo G1 Devestator. Now there are two much better options than upgrading G1 Devestator.

I agree and I really hope this is just a marketing ploy. I will be ragin' cagun if all the parts I spent my hard earned bucks on is in some way NOT compatable. I will then never buy another CrazyDevy part/item again. Got that CrazyDevy?? Stop with the mindf*cking already...'nuff said! :evil: :VEHI:

Given their piece meal marketing strategy, I can only guess this is persuade Encore customers to order. Encore reissues have been (in my experience) exact reproductions (as far as molds, not colors). I can't imagine there being a difference.

FYI: There is a reason for this release besides a money grab, the original CrazyDevy thighs will not fit the Encore set. One of local collector buddies just let me know. Not sure where the problem lies yet, I've asked him for pics.

Well then, that would mean there is some kind of change from the G1. I thought Encore and the white box reissues were straight-up 80's molds. That sucks.

Could it be mold degredation?

Might be. I can't see any differences from pics.

So for someone starting with an Encore edition, is this a solid pickup?
