Whipped up a comparison of the Hasbro retail versions versus the SDCC versions. Like I keep saying, the vac-metal purple is the least notable change. The SDCC versions are dramatically superior in the paint apps and decals department.

That comparison definitely solidified my decision to go with the SDCC version, and at only $30 more than the regular it's a no brainer. Now I just have to watch HTS like a hawk.

Before it looked like chrome; now it's metallic highlights, right?

"Vac-metal parts" (short for "vacuum metalised parts") basically means it has chrome covering certain parts, like Transmetal figures from Beast Wars (hopefully not as flaky).

Thanks Va'al, I was waiting for those pictures. ^ ^

The chrome appears more like a metallic paint in effect.
At the moment, I think I will buy this version, waiting possible Takara version pictures.

You know, the more I think about it, I dont get why Mixmaster couldnt be the conventional cement truck he was in G1. Both ends could easily be interchanged if designed a little different.

They went with a model of cement truck that would be of appropriate size with Long Haul's gigantic mining dump truck altmode.

Like Scrapper's missing elbows it's probably for stability. The cab of the original toy was rather big and still had the wheels in leg mode, while CW Mixmaster has a smaller foot, more room to wiggle and above all, no wheels.

Ah, but as we all kind of agreed on, alt mode scale is not something any of us really expect from the brand ;)

I rpeffer this reason to the one above. I am all for structural integrity :)

I've been getting Deja Vu from that SDCC box.

It has finally dawned on me.

I've used that image off and on as my phone's wallpaper.

Between group teammates in this line, it is. Hence the reduction of Groove to a Legends.

They wanted the Constructicons to all be giant mining vehicles, so the model of cement truck they went with for Mixmaster is the kind that is that big. And they wanted to modernize him.

It's worth noting that there seem to be enough details on both ends of the truck that Mixmaster can pass as a more traditional cement mixer if that's what you want him to be.

That still seems to go against the general look of the figure that is basically: pure G1. I find that its G1 look is more invasive than it's theme of them being giant mining vehicles.

And as for groove, while I totally see that Hasbro logic being carried in both that release and this one, I am pretty sure the fandom proved just how much they would rather have a deluxe one.

Oh totally! Hence why I wasnt sure why they didnt simply go full on G1. But the wheels comment makes sense, and it seems the capability to make him face either way is a good compromise to the alt mode change for structural reasons.

Thus, an accurate Prowlastator would require two new figures: Prowl as the upper torso, and a new Hook to form the right leg. In addition, building a Prowl who would be his usual black and white in robot and car mode and green in combined mode would tax even the most brilliant engineer at Takara.


1) Prowl is green in both modes as a constructicon, so it wouldn't be as hard as you are making it out to be.

Prowl is black and white. Period.

That picture you posted of Prowl in green and purple is fanart.

Hey guys. now that we have a better look at the remolded head for the SDCC version, which one do you preffer? I actually like the normal one but I preffer the paint apps on SDCC. And for only 30$ more, it sounds fair. But since I dont want to end up with 2 devastators (I dont even have space for 1 but I will figure something out), I think I will stick to the normal version dur to its head sculpt.

Or rather, colourist Josh Perez playing around with the scene. But yes, not official colours in any way.

I'm with you Will. I'm torn over the head, but dem paint apps.

$30 isn't enough to sway me, so it comes down to deco preference.
