The Constructicons came and went with some states seeing him only briefly last year, and others more recently on clearance only a few months ago. He's still listed at full price at $74.00US but if you were reluctant to take the plunge on this set and regretted missing it, here's your second chance. Just click HERE or any of the images below to head to WalMart.com and prepare to get devastated!

Woot! The G1 Constructicons were back in stock on Walmart.com this evening! I was finally able to order them. Should have them by Thursday!

If you dig many pages back, I asked that question because the Takara Encore "anime colored" version that I got was stable as a house of cards. But the Walmart one was confirmed to be rock solid.
Yeah, there don't seem to be any complaints about the QC on G1 Vintage series Devastator, in as far as structural integrity and functionality. However, there do seem to be some changes made to the mold and assembly for some figures, like molded details being less sharp and more shallow than before, pins being used instead of screws, the green plastic being a slightly different shade, etc.
What I find interesting is how Hasbro has chosen either to update figures or not. They obviously aren't using the G1 rub signs, but then there are some subtle things like extra paint apps on the Minibots, using the remolded Bumblebee head instead of the vintage visored one, whereas with other releases, they don't make any changes to the original toy's presentation when they easily could, like giving Optimus Prime or Soundwave their respective cartoon blue and red optics, instead of the toy yellow. Is there any rhyme or reason to it?
