Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user, MadProject has shared an interesting image with us all, that of our possible first look at the rumoured boxset containing all eight Transformers Studio Series Constructicons! The box lists the release as SS-69.

Transformers News: Possible First Look At Transformers Studio Series ROTF Devastator Boxset

While MadProject found the image on Facebook, Instagram user, seton2345 also has been sharing it, with no mention where they got it from in the accompanying Instagram post.

While this image could turn out to be a clever fake, it does show how big a box would be needed for all the constructicons to fit in. One thing to note is that while the picture quality isn't great enough to make any judgement on the decos of the figures, Skipjack is part of the group as per the movie avd there appears to be weathering on Long Haul.

What do you think of this? Do you think this is legitimate or not? Where you expecting different colour schemes? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

(If this turns out to be real) I'm actually kind of glad the decos are more or less the same, And not too noticeably different from the individual releases. It would be a real kick in the head to people who bought the individual releases, Only to have a heavily improved deco'd one appear after the fact in a new box set (which has happened before). Anyway, It'll be nice for anyone wanting to complete Devastator all in one purchase.

Sorry, couldn't resist. But the box set does look pretty amazing.

the only thing is giving me questions, is that the box itself looks more square-ish, while the plastic bubble looks more rectangular.
I wonder if there will be some extra stuff of sort with him.
Like, as incentive for the purchase, a weapon pack for the Studio Series figures, like they did with Centurion Drone.

Devastator boxset is neat, I'm interested to see some better pictures of it since we can see the weathering on Long Haul.

I'm actually quite liking Topspin too, they really nailed the sculpted detail, the transformation has some neat stuff (like the wheel flip in the legs), and I like that it includes all the weapons. The arms are a little long, but I don't have much in terms of complaints other than that. Very excited to get Topspin and paint it up!

My Scavenger was also delivered back home today! It'll be a while before I have it, but it's nice to know that it was delivered.

I suspect that box is not the final version since the art/image is the old render we first saw it one of the toy fairs ages ago. Also, even if the decos are somewhat different or weathered, won't be upset since it can't be better then my custom paint job on each one so far ;)^

There's probably a second tray since I can't see anywhere on that one for Mixmaster and the accessories. Probably just the best they could steal procure.

I may have skipped the individual releases because I don't trust distribution.

But that ROTF Devy boxset... I want it. I want it a lot!

Yeah the boxart being that old art showcasing the prototype makes me not trust it at all.

I think the boxset exists yeah but I don't think this is it.

I never bothered getting the Constructicons individually for 2 reasons: I don't like how Devastator looked in the movie, and I didn't want to get them piece by piece. However, I will admit the individual figures, especially the leaders, look really good. So if this is really $250 or so, I'll seriously consider it. Also, the image seems to be compressed, I think the box will be rectangular, while the plastic bubble will be a square, with some stuff on the side. I was hoping for 2 deluxe or legends class Twins figures.

And once you have it, you can use your headcanon to rename it anything you want if you'd rather not think of this monstrosity as "Devastator". ;)

It doesn't have to do with the name, really. I mean, he's a combiner made of construction vehicles. So naturally, Devastator, right? It's the final form I have a problem with. It's too animal-like. If it had been able to stand straight up, it would have been passable. Luckily I think the toy can stand on 2 legs, so it's actually better. And yes, I know the reasons why he was like that in the movie. While they are plausible, I didn't think they were necessary.

Side note: this "reveal" has inspired me to watch RoTF for the first time in about 6 years. I actually managed to suppress the memories of stupid childish sexual humor, so I have been face-palming a bit.

Oof, good luck. It's that very kind of "humor" that's kept me from watching it again.

Though, here's a bit of irony. I always felt that if the movie had just left out all of that grossness then it would have been fine. But then when I first read the movie's comic book adaptation, I found that that version told the same general story as the movie and did excise all of the film's nastiness... but what all was left was just boring. The comic took all of the bad stuff out of the movie, left in all of the good stuff, and yet somehow, some way, the good stuff became dull. :BANG_HEAD:

I had created a separate thread about Vudu's new "family friendly" feature where it will edit out language and scenes it deems not to be "family friendly", I actually watched RotF with this filter on. It was a bit jarring, and the scene with Alice "aggressively showing affection" for Sam caused the app to crash, but it did make the movie better somehow :lol: .

Basically if you could cobble together all of Optimus Prime's battle scenes from that film, that's all I need to remember form it. ;)^

I still need a drill to the forehead to forget Megatron being subserviant to the Fallen & listening to Starscream.

Seemed to be a bit of an unwarranted uproar that Bay sexualised Megan Fox but no complaints about a child living robot being turned into hump machine. I think that put me off getting a Wheelie at the time (surely it was lost marketing and money if they had made him kid friendly and sold RC toys of him in the BB8 bucketloads but I guess it would take five script writers with a single brain cell to pull it off).

A new SS wheelie version might not beat the orig toy if the new SS satellite soundwave is anything to go by.

There won't be a ss wheelie (non 86 version anyway), scale is the big factor, the character is just too small to get a transforming toy.

Technically SS Wheelie already exists, but it was a non-transforming minifig with Shockwave, so that's still half-right, he is too small to transform.

Didn't micro figures of Wheelie & Brains come with SS Shockwave? Also I'd agree since the Arcee 3 pack were basically 3 legion class figures, I don't think we will be able to get anything smaller transformable. Laserbeak and Ravage I guess could arguably be about that size, but ravage never transformed in RotF. Also I guess the only Frenzy we may see is a tiny non transforming figure as well.

I meant to say a stand alone transformable wheelie, and I started questioning myself if Shockwave came with both Wheelie and Brains or just Brains for some reason

So I just found out that one of my Overloads is shipped from Amazon (US) and should be here Friday! I am so happy, I can not wait to get him in hand and finally make devastator!
