And now for a non-Devastator related question (although pretty appropriate name for him with the "devastating" news that he's such a disappointment to many...lololololz) Anyhow, the alliance Bumblebee fig...is he really Alternator sized? Thanks much!

I am so very ecstatic to see a good Arcee figure. And as a car. This is one important step closer to getting a true, G1 Arcee in the Universe line. Wow.

Everything else is pretty underwhelming.

And Devastator.....:lol:

Devastator or not, that is one of the the ugliest, biggest wastes of plastic I've ever seen.

Leader Prime looks good as does Soundwave, dirtboss, knockout, & rollbar the rest look like gobots. Worse than the first movie figures i think. Except Strascream. He looks alot better but im renaming him again. Arcee looks great. About damn time they mad a real figure for her. I cant believe they gave animated Soundwave a frakin keytar. He already looks retarded enough now you have to twist the knife and give him that? I dont care if its Ratbat it still sucks. And of coarse its Soundwave so ill have to buy it. Damn you hasro. Universe Legends are a win. Looks like ill be adding another Hot Rod (or 3) to my collection. The RPMS i dont get. Yeah ill get Barricade since its Barricade but i dont see the point other than money for hasbro And possibly display options. Use the RPM to show alt mode rather than spending money on a 2nd or 3rd figure. The remote control prime is a cool idea. Would be better if it transformed but still cool. Devastator is an epic fail no matter how you look at it. Sideswipe looks cool but he looks to much like a generic anime robot rather than a Transformer. But that seems to be the theme of the movie other than smashing dreams and wheeled feet. Ill get him but once again rename. Thank you hasbro looks like ill be saving alot of money this year. Yeah right, knowing me ill go through withdrawl from not buying TF figures and buy all the crap i dont want. Well adds value to my ever growing collection. And i can pass them off as gobots or anime robots.

There is no way this can be $100 toy:

For 100 bucks you can get three real voyagers and 4 real deluxes. Shoot, even with the new prices you can ger more than 2 real voyagers and 4 real deluxes...

The individual vehicles look more like FABs too--maybe this is FAB Devastator!

Sigh...I guess there is still the smallest smidgeon of hope that's not it, but oh well... :(

I don't know, rounding up, four 13 dollar deluxes and two 23 dollar voyagers equals 98 bucks. It's about even. I suppose one could argue the lack of robot modes takes away from that, but like I said, maybe it does something more. Demolisher is a pretty big centerpiece.

Me too...

How awesome would it be to have this guy set up with the rest of your movie toys? I think the toy looks very cool, but I just can't visualize paying 100 dollars for it. But if the price drops, it's probably mine.

Can't wait for these toys to hit shelves.

I think movie Devastators popularity will increase after everyone sees him in the movie. You know he's gonna be badass on screen.

Wouldn't be shocked to see him become the Ultimate Bumblebee type fig...shelf warmer until x-mas time hits, then suddenly the hot holiday toy. But I wouldn't be shocked to see him sitting on the clearance rack either.

Well, here's my current outlook for 2009.

Animated Soundwave w/Ratbat- Probably going to get. I like the black repaint they gave him, and the keytar Ratbat just looks too cool to pass up.

Animated Arcee- I need this. Looks like the best Arcee figure yet, in my opinion, and I've passed up every other Arcee figure that's been released in my lifetime.

Movie Devastator- Pass. That thing doesn't look too good. Maybe if it's on clearance later on in the year? But I'm probably just going to buy the individual pieces, even if they don't combine.

Movie Retools/Remolds (Optimus Prime, Starscream, Ironhide, ETC)- Pass on all. I got them from the first movie, why would I need another one that looks a little different? Although the Starscream with hands looks nice...

Movie Sideswipe- REALLY nice figure, the only Movie figure I KNOW I must get.

Move Skids/Mudflap- I think their faces are funny, but I still think the figures are great.

Movie Scouts- Awesome alt ideas! A forklift is something that definately perks my interests.

Universe Legends- Need them all. Just depends if I can ever find them. Never had too much luck with the popular Legends figures.

Bumble Spud- :lol: I can't believe they're making another one. Still, if they had to pick another character, makes sense for it to be Bumblebee. And awesome name choice.

I've got to admit, I'm....confused. Very confused about Devastator. I simply have trouble visualizing them marketing 'Does not Transform' transformers...you would really think Hasbro would have learned from the Actionmaster debacle...

That said, I have high hopes for the transforming Cons to be able to combine....somehow...even as I admit that that would make No sense. It does please me that theres no mold cloning going on...and I'm Very curious about Mixmaster. Does Dev's mouth open up as a cannon?

I'm not sure if it;s been done yet because i haven't read through all the pages but lets all take a sec. and give a BIG thanks to Ryan (and staff?) for going through the trouble of getting these pics for us fans! :APPLAUSE:

that being said here's my 2 cents...

im really dissipointed with most all the movie figs...
but im really happy (like a lot of you) that i'll be saving quite a chunk of change. however i would have been happy to shell out $$$ for AWESOME movie toys... i still think the movie will ROCK and i think it might even make it more enjoyable without having to worry about tracking down all the toys.

but who knows, in the end i might cave and end up collecting the whole set, only time will tell. but as for my first impressions of the movie line... Hey where the smilie of the guy throwing up?

Arcee looks tiny. Is she a scout class? What's up with the two hill-billy Transformers? I thought it was a joke when someone mentioned "hill-billy robots" last month. But now I see that it's no joke.

The Devastator fiasco doesn't surprise me. Hasbro probably chose to go this route just to make more money. There will be folks who will buy the Gestalt version and then spend extra money to buy the non-gestalt version just to obtain the robot modes. It's all about the all mighty dollar.

I will be disappointed if this is the only Devastator set, but I have not seen the rest of the Constructicons in their Voyager or Deluxe version, other than Demolishor and Rampage... and those two have the possibility to turn into parts of Devastator. I remember seeing one of the first Demolishor pics and the tracks can be placed at the shoulders, similar to what this vehicle-only Devastator counterpart does. And if you look closely to Deluxe Rampage, he has enough joints to easily be transformed into Devastator's left leg (and I think he has proper feet, just mistransformed.)


If that were the case it would render the set displayed rather pointless, no? What I don't understand is why Demolishor's "bot" mode blows so majorly when it's not even a compromise for the sake of forming Devastator...



I agree - if the individual robot Constructicon toys were capable of merging together, then why wouldn't Hasbro display that during the Toy Fair event? In addition, the packages don't mention gestalt on them.

The Demolishor bot mode is very silly. I can only imagine that they are trying to make the toy true to the movie.

Holy CRAP!!! Did you see ROTF Rampage??? YES, HE DOES LOOK LIKE BONECRUSHER!

:shock:
I will be waiting for a G1 redeco of that Devastator.
Why is Bonecrusher and Jazz included in that "Devastator final showdown" car set?

Finally! Someone gets it! This wasn't a mistake or a 'lack of engineering technology' as some have suggested -- it's just old fashioned greed. Hasbro has played us for 25 years now, and they're getting craftier at separating us from our money with each successive toyline. The only reason for Hasbro to make two versions of Devastator is a sneaky attempt to make more money.

C'mon, let's be honest, we justify buying the same piece of plastic THREE TIMES simply because the toy is colored differently (i.e. Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker). That doesn't sound like good judgment to me, but I fall for it nevertheless. Hasbro is at the top of its game when it comes to doubling (or tripling) their money off of one product.

Frankly, this Devastator business is a little bit too far for me, though. Once they start selling us non-transforming figures from a toyline called 'Transformers,' you gotta take a step back and look at what they're handing us. As someone mentioned before, 'Robot Replicas' were shelfwarmers last time around, and I have a feeling that history will repeat itself there. Remember the last time Hasbro 'jumped the shark' with non-transforming bots? We witnessed the end of the G1 era with Action Masters! It took years for the line to recover!

I actually like the new Devastator mold, but I sure as hell won't spend $100 on a gestalt without individual robot modes, especially since it's highly likely that Hasbro will release an 'ultimate' Devastator edition sometime in the near future with fully transforming bots that combine, too. Look, if Hasbro could make fully converting gestalts happen in 1985, why can't they make it happen now? (and on a bigger scale to work with, no less...) I love the look of the new movie figs (Sideswipe and revamped Starscream are bitchin'!), but I'm not gonna fall for Hasbro's hocus pocus with the Devastator thing this time.

On that note, I truly hope that everybody who partakes in the Devy giftset is happy with their purchase and doesn't regret spending the money, but I have a distinct feeling that I'll be much more satisfied spending $12.99 on Sideswipe than $100.00 on an alt-mode only Devastator.

Let's hope ROTF kicks some butt!!! :D

Am I the only one that really likes Devastator (Combiner not Power Ranger version)? We know that the deluxe size have robot modes, or at least Rampage. Not sure how much I would pay for it though. I would probably but them seperately to spread the cost a bit. Who wants to bet Breakaway will not make it to the movie?

OK, this Devastator is an uber-epic-fail for me. What I don't get is> the transforming voyager red constructicon is called Demolishor here, while the non-transforming torso part has SCVNGR sign on him? Can anybody please explain?

This is the super big secret hasbro was protecting from the media and people????!!!!Looks like the hot air is out of the bag man.

Kids bought a combiner instead of a power ranger megazord or voltron robot because they wanted more than just 1 big figure. The movie devastator is such a letdown. Dudes come on. It looks nice but wnat the heck is going on? Kids might buy devastator but for its size I think its gonna be pricy anyway. If its a question of articulation, I don't think this figure is anymore flexible than a normal combiner. Is someone gonna pose him like he's doin a sommersalt or handstand? Look at the RID,beastwars and energon combiners.Were they that difficult to make?

What's up with the twins? When they reformated to earth vehicles they happened to see picasso's art and decided to look like it? Or like bumblebee lost his voice fighting meatron in the prequel comic did megatron knock their heads together or with a shovle for them to look like that?Or did hasbro hire people who were severely myopic to design the heads?

Overall I think that What are the guys in hasbro doing? Are they trying to do bad designs so that we would save money over the economical crisis?I guess this is what you get from a company doing coporate restructing before an economical crisis.Minimum manpower + maximum hours = alot of nothing.
