If this is true, I'll finally have an excuse to bust out the yellow and orange G2 Constructicons as well as the European non-combining Constructicons. We'll have to have a Tonka truck themed week!!!

Man ... that'd totally help getting us to 2,500 galleries by the end of the year. All of those Constructicon galleries could amount to at least 27+ galleries, 28 if I do Action Master Devastator as well.

Well, Takara could allways storm the chinese factory where the dino KOs were made to get the molds back.

Now that's a damn cool reissue!

I wonder if there will be any changes/improvements, like there were for Predaking.

Not that I can think of many improvements that are required for G1 Devy.

That's an opinion, not a fact.


No No, I think there's a law somewhere. Maybe just in my head.

Now Crazy Devy has an excuse to finally get back and finish Devastator.

They could easily add ball joints to some portions of the component figures themselves. The legs would be next to impossible, given how they transform and combine, but arms and heads could be doable.

I doubt it'll be anything drastic.

This is just freakin' awesome. Now this mold had legal issues involved and that's why Hasbro never re-released it?? Maybe by next Botcon they will release the G2 set. I think its now a matter of time for Stunticon fans to get Menasor then all will be right with the world. At least for that moment...'nuff said! :VEHI:

I've been waiting nearly 25 years for Round 2 with this Devastator asshole.

I got the giftset one fine morning at my Grandma's over summer and that punk Hook's leg broke right off, first transformation. Naturally, I was enraged as a 5 or 6 year old kid and swore that I would only buy Takara when I grew up.

Then my Grandma took Devastator back and we got Defensor instead.

Defensor only has love in his heart where Devastator is an evil sack of shit.

(Also, I was dumb as hell as a child and had no idea what to do with those hoses that came with Hotspot.)

Reissuing the most bootlegged gestalt?

Interesting idea, problem is any one who wnats one probabaly already owns a good version between all the high quality bootlegs, mexican releases foriegn releases etc.

I can see this being the new skylynk and being a shelf warmer after a while and knocked out on discount, but hey atleast it was yet another Bruticus reissue.

Now when they get to Road Ceaser or Dino King I'll get excited.

energon devy was the first to be rereleased, back in 07 with the classics line as a walmart exclusive


Well 2 things:

1) I don't live in the US..
2) I started collecting in 2009..

So that's makes me unable to get hold of this current set at an affordable price, I saw a few that is way overpriced.
