Ozformers, who first stated that there would be an Amazon exclusive reissue of Combiner Wars Devastator has now announced that it wouldn't see a release until January. It was initially supposed to come out before the year ends.

A "small" update from Hasbro, just days after we broke the news...the reissue Combiner Wars Devastator has been delayed to January (everywhere, not just Australia, so it isn't just us this time).

If's it's the Combiner Wars reissue, it will be a hard pass from me.
An Unite Wariors reissue, now that I could think about it.

All signs point to CW

Argh.... #-o [-(

I hated it so I sold mine long ago. But if Takara would pull the rug from under the KO companies feet and make a downsized to standard CW combiner version of their UW set, I'd be all over it.

It's amazing how much better the Unite Warriors version is. Just a few guns and elbows, and you take the set from disappointing to nearly perfect. I mean, what the hell was Hasbro thinking? Voyager sized figures without elbow articulation? A few cents extra for guns?

Plus they probably figured that most collectors would end up sticking Devy on a shelf behind other figures and never touched again. I mean what's the point of the extra stuff if you never use it?

I really didn't like the feel of this Devy. As if it was made out of Tupperware / margarine containers.

Hrmm... I've never handled the CW version, but the UW version is solid. Not sure there would be that much of a difference in the quality of plastic?

I really wish they'd reissue Metroplex. I can't find him at retail anywhere :( He's the only modern titan I'm missing.

Greetings. I was in the same situation as you until about a year ago. I was actually hoping Hasbro would reissue Metroplex back in 2017 when TR Trypticon came out, but it did not happen. :TAKARATOMY: has reissued Metroplex twice I believe, and the last time was in 2018. BBTS had them in stock until Feb 2019. Just as I was about to get my tax return and pull the trigger they sold out.

Fortunately an auction came up on eBay a few weeks later, I was able to get a MIB T30 for just about $200. But the TT reissue would have cost me close to $300, so I was glad.

Don't give up, and be patient. It took me a couple of years of looking before I finally was able to get one. Also understand exactly what it is you want. I was willing to pay up to $200 for a loose complete T30, but I was fortunate with what came across my path.

Everyone is different. If I were still missing Metroplex, I'd be willing to settle for a loose complete one for about $250, and a MIB (of either the hasbro or TT version) I'd be willing to pay probably $350. I know they can list for much higher. I'd pursue getting one as best as possible as opposed to waiting until *who knows when* for another release, or a new toy, which I dont think should happen for at least another 10 years.

But believe me, I know there are limits. There are a few items I've resigned to myself that I'll never own because they are next to impossible to obtain (look at my wish list), or even if they were, would probably be more than I am able to pay for them. Hindsight is a pain in the ass. I had the perfect circumstances also. If I had known BC2016 was going to be the last one. I would have taken out a couple new credit cards, got the golden ticket registration, flown my whole family to Louisville, and signed all 4 of us up for the build-a-figure class. But I digress...

Don't give up searching for your Metroplex, be diligent and patient, and hopefully you can score one.

i paid a STUPID amount for a san dieago comicon metroplex (the one with the phil jiminez art)as the fig in even its basic set never got a release in ireland and i never thought there'd be a re release.

que the two that happened !

but i had the disposable at the time so im not that upset really

hold out , ya may get it again in few years or so.

i recently dropped the hammer on an encore fort max that big bad toy store got back in recently. ive wanted that lad since i was 16 but thought id lost the chance. he's STILL pricey but ALOT cheaper than the alternatives ive had available up to now (seriously im talking 700+ euro range from other sources PRE postage ! )

in a way im glad Devy has been postponed. covid is fking things RIGHT up economy wise so i cant justify him now till things get better on the financial front. but AFTER the crimbo bonus?

suddenly he's alot more affordable.

i dunno though. ive been using the toy lines lately to fill out all the missing characters i couldnt get back in the g1 days and ive already got g1 devy. right now the main attraction is ive got all the other titans so he's bascially all i need for a complete set.

i probably will. i said i wouldnt get scorponok for the same reason, then he ACTUALLY hit stores in my country so was too cheap to pass up (as well as the whole "scaling with fort max" thing)

I'm pretty sure G1 Fortmax will scale well with ER Scorponok. But CW/UW Devastator don't scale with anyone.

Correction, devy scales with Omega Supreme, as it should.

Oh? Is that his "official rival"?

Yup, more or less thanks to that G1 episode Secret of Omega Supreme

Plus he doesn't look too out of place on an MP shelf.

Ahhh my favorite episode. It's cheesy, fun, and has a great ( albeit brief) battle between Omega and Dev. Also the B story in San Francisco was cool also as someone who grew up in the area.

This was my catharsis. Ever since Dev trashed the Dinobots in Heavy Metal War, I had seen Omega in the 85 catalogue, and truly hoped he would be the Autobots answer to a powerful bot. I was not disappointed
