toywizard.net- Many fans were thinking either to themselves or out loud, that the two options that we have for movie Devastator (3 if you include the CyberStomper) do not quite meet expectations because well, the individual bots and vehicles do not have all three modes needed to be a perfect transforming gestalt as we are used to from previous toys. The two options were combining vehicles to form Devastator, or individual vehicles that transformed to robots, not both,until now it seems...

Are you ready for this? The answer to your desires seems to be coming from a very unexpected size toy...the legends class toy of the Constructicons and Devastator.

According to toywizard.net, the Takara Tomy EZ (Legends size in the U.S.) Devastator set toys can transform from individual vehicles, to individual robots, to a combined form of DEVASTATOR!!! Yes, that's right, the good ol' days are upon us again, it seems.

You can see the original news at toywizard.net, and a mirror of the image below.

So freaking impressive. So much so that I put up a story as well! Need to leave the news posting to you pros from now on.

Regardless, I'm floored by this. And Hasbro wasn't able to make a working full size version why again?!

So freaking bought! I like how the combined form looks.

I'm actually excited for Legends class figures!

Makes the hundred dollar version seem a lot more pathetic. Oh well.

Sorry, I was up with the baby, knew it was important, and saw that we seemed to have an exclusive here.

Plus, it's super cool.

Well, Well, Well... Takara can do it to some extent, and this has to be the first legends figure I'm looking forward to... It will be pathetic next to Frenzy Rumble's Devastator, which I hope to get, but this is good, and hopefully won't suck. :?

Am I the only one who's pulling a "oh looks, there's 7 Constructicons" looking at that?

Interesting... now UpSize that thing!

also, as odd as it may sound, i hope these come packaged seperately.

it would add a little more entertainment in the race to get them!

There are a couple weird ones in the group...Demolisher, and then the crane has some funky arachnid look to it. Then there is the grader that appears to be Bonecrusher re-incarnated....

So wait are we going to get this set in the states or is it some exclusive for Japan/some other toy company that will over charge?

This looks amazing! Totally a must buy, especially for the realitivly cheap price.

Guess it confirms that Overload exists, although it also confirms Demolisher IS Scavenger. Good to know.

I'm not, however, gonna dump hate on the big version.

The reasons for the hundred dollar version are simple. It's electronic, and has more gimmicks. It can do his mouth action. This one obviously cannot. Also, the individual bots, the ACTUAL figures, would not be able to combine while having very accurate vehicle and robot modes. And still be awesome figures on their own. The Legends class robots modes are hardly on the scale of the deluxes and voyagers, so there is more leeway to experiment since all modes are so simple (They need to be due to the price point.) I'd rather Hasbro not try to jam everything in one package, or seven, as it were.

Basically, I'll be getting both!

That's pretty impressive for its small size! And if the individual Constructicons are normal sized compared to your average Legends class bot, this is definitely a must have. Makes me wonder if they will do likewise for the Optimus and Jetfire or even the Sisters and Twins (seeing as that combiners seems to be the name of the game in this particular toyline).

Or maybe it was because they actually wanted to make good product?

Naw, guess that can't be it.

Definitely not the reason.

We've seen that Legends class, and leader class Jetfires and Primes will combine...

Well, I guess we'll have to respectfully disagree.

But on a different note,

I'm loving the different style of bot designs for this movie, and the constructicons. Hightower looks weird, but also kinda cool. Just like the bikes.

So Takara can make Legends triple changers/combiners, yet it cannot be done by hasbro in Deluxe/larger sizes....

go figure.
