Taxes are annoying, How do you think you'll do with shipping? I noticed that Amazon is offering free shipping with this beast... I have yet to see any price limit that BBTS does that :(

I got excited about the $10 off too but now I'm not sure which way is cheaper.


Taxes are $13.50-ish from Amazon for me in CA. However, I use the BBTS "Pile of Loot" to lump my products into a single shipment, and since I already order other stuff from BBTS that's not on Amazon (Fan Toys sucked me in and I get my Masterpiece figs from BBTS, plus now I preorder my CW limbs on there since they arrive sooner) then for me the shipping cost is minimally incremental.

I HIGHLY recommend Pile of Loot if you end up doing multiple orders throughout the year from BBTS and lumping them into a quarterly (or less frequent) delivery. Currently I have a 2nd Masterpiece Optimus MP-10 in my loot bucket waiting for me, and a Fan Toys Sever (Snarl) on the way in a couple weeks or so.

Well, for $139, I bit. Perhaps TT's will list before this ships. I hate to stiff BBTS, but price is going to be everything for me in this decision...

I pre-ordered mine from bbts. I dont have amazon prime so I dont get the free shipping. I foresee this guy being hard to find like metroplex sure there may be some great deals to get him cheaper if your lucky. Otherwise trying to get him in the aftermarket will be even more expensive.

luks0r, I'm in the same boot as you. Amazon 149 + $13 Cali tax is no bueno. bbts 139 + $7 shipping and no tax. Had to switch orders to bbts. I've always purchased from them anyways and they are steller.

What state are you in? Because my Amazon orders are definitely subjected to NC sales tax these days.


MO no amazon sales tax here.

Oooh, you should be a staff member for this kind of stuff; just run around all the different forums doing advanced conversion-type-stuff :-B


I actually considered applying when Seibertron was looking for writers recently, but I'm already pretty busy thanks to my real job and my writing job (which pays me in review samples and occasionally money) so I decided against it.

You don't need Prime to get free shipping on this (assuming you live in the US, Mexico, or Singapore), at its price the shipping will be free for non Prime members.

Seriously ... this sale has been planned for months and they don't get all their stock. :roll:


This happens with the stores by me. It's the individual department managers discretion on what to order and how much. If they don't think something will sell they won't order it. Stock sits they're responsible.

nah, Hasbro AU has apparently been shifting warehouses, it's why we've had such a limited release of Wave 2 CW's as well.

Given he ended up on Page 30 of their big toy sale catalogue, I think it's safe to say Big W were placing more faith in Minions stuff shifting than Transformers.

My local obviously has little love for Transformers, yes we got a handful of Devies luckily but our entire TF section is 2 feet wide, oh and behind a 2 1/2 foot wide concrete pylon.

Who else is not a fan of the SDCC version of Devastator?
Just looked at the photos from the news page, and I definitely do not like how some of the purple sections of the figures are metallic and some are not.
I get they may have more articulation, but for me, looks trumps that.
The metallic purple sections being literally right next to the non-metallic purple sections just doesn't work for me.
I also don't need Devastators chest piece to be metallic either.

Yeah, they dont have more articulation, its the same as the standard version, just with some chrome and a different head. I am definitely not a fan. The ultimate version of this toy is clearly the takara version and I can guarantee that the takara version will be a hotter commodity than the SDCC one. To be totally honest, the only market interested in that SDCC Devy are the completionists or collectors of exclusive toys. And even then, they would be getting it for the sake of the collection, not because they love it. All this is based on the feedback all versions have gotten so far from fans.

I really feel that SDCC version is a failure since the added cost doesnt give the collector as much as another version. I would like to know who out there actually prefers this one over the other versions because I just dont see it.

I prefer the SDCC version to the other two. I'm a fan of the vac metal pieces and the metallic shine of the rest of the purple. Plus this version undoubtedly has better paint apps than the other two. I couldn't care less about the whole elbow thing since he will be displayed in combined mode 99.99% of the time. Plus it only costs $20 more than the regular retail release.

@SYG
I'm with you. Out of the three, the SDCC version is my favourite. Remolded elbows are dope, but if I'm just being honest with myself I can admit that at the end of the day they'll be Combined 97% of the time, so added articulation in the individual bots is kinda moot.

However, I'll be getting TT's because he'll be cheaper than the aftermarket price of SDCC's. *shrug*

I'm going to try to get him from HTS, I know it's going to be a crap shoot but I have faith that with the dwindling admiration of it I'll have a semi decent chance at grabbing one.

I'm with Shajaki, although I personally think the TT version is the best looking. I was considering taking the easy route and just buying the hasbro version, but after seeing all the cool stuff takara's comes with, (like the guns that will be lended to other figures in need) I might just go for the high end. The only thing is, how much do you reckon the behemoth will be with shipping? I imagine he's gonna be pricy, despite being less than the SDCC aftermarket.

I am really glad the SDCC version is getting some love, it means the toy has a market out there and that is always a great thing. Toys needs homes :)

Just a heads up though to those who say that the reason why Takara's is not benefitting to the combined mode, Takara does have a retractable visor which makes you able to alternate between the standard look from the Hasbro retail version, and the look from the SDCC version.


ALSO, here is a post I found on Talk Transformers facebook for the australians out there:

BEWARE OF THIS SCALPER ON EBAY!
---------------------------------------------------
Devastator came out in Australian Big W stores on Thursday and was instantly sold out. This low-life managed to buy EIGHT of them and is attempting to scalp seven of them for AU$330 each (even though he only paid AU$200 each). I strongly advise that you do _NOT_ purchase anything from him or any other scalper.
Remember that every time someone buys a toy at an inflated price from a scalper, you are supporting their despicable practice and encouraging them to do it again. Help fight scalpers by NOT buying from them and drive them out of business!
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/361329629645
I'm so glad I don't use eBay! smile emoticon But how funny would it be if nobody bought them, leaving him $1400 out of pocket (or forcing him to just sell them for $200 each :p)
BE PATIENT! Most stores _will_ restock. Big W's computer system indicates that most stores are waiting on an order for 8-12 units per store. Here is a list of Big W stores which are _NOT_ awaiting restock (so don't bother trying them):
Sunshine, VIC
Altona Meadows, VIC
Endeavour Hills, VIC
Parkmore (Keysborough), VIC
Forest Hill, VIC
South Yarra, VIC
Queen Vic Village (Melbourne CBD), VIC
Box Hill, VIC
Taigum, QLD
Bonnyrigg, NSW
Wetherill Park, NSW
Yeppoon, QLD
Golden Grove, SA

Scalpers will always be supported. Its not something anyone LIKES, just something we have to live with. There's always someone willing to buy them.
