A tip from fellow Seibertronian shajaki brings us the linework by Marcelo Matere for the box art of the recently revealed Hasbro Transformers Combiner Wars Devastator. You can find the image mirrored below, showing off the gestalt form as it appears before colouring and glossing, and in its extended version. Enough to make you want to keep the toy's box too?

If only the actual Mixmaster toy's foot mode looked like that. Beautiful work.

Looks like he just drew a stylized illustration of the 1985 toy instead of using the new Titan figure as a reference.

Very nice artwork. More G1 Devastator than CW Devastator, but still nice. The box is WAY too big for me to want to keep though!

Mixmaster foot corrections or not this is awesome. This makes me want to see more of the transformer card artwork in all it's raw, line art glory.

I'm torn on this. I have Hercules (I thought it was Green Giant but I mixed the two up) which I think is a good hefty solid Devastator. You could throw one of those components through a window.

But the individual guys don't really match the actual Constucticons as much as I'd like. These guys do, although they also look flimsier and I'm not keen on spending $150.00 after spending $400-$500 on the other set.

I look at the new Mixmaster and I see..... a mixer-forward cement truck. If anybody's a toilet on wheels, it's Long Haul because he's a DUMP truck..... anybody? Anybody? Okay I'm sorry that was funnier in my head.

Metroplex had his initial release through BBTS at BotCon, followed by retail at TRU.
He was then released to and sold by Amazon and HTS. Costco had him as a Christmas special item. Target did not carry him at all, regardless of what people or their website might have said. Wal*Mart.com did carry him, but the stores did not.

Mainly due to his size and price point. He was never exclusive to anyone, it's just that no one really wanted to carry him in a B&M store, aside from TRU. Considering how well he sold at their stores and the apparently limited numbers, it felt like he was an exclusive at least.

Thanks for clearing that up. I guess we can expect a similar release for Devastator then.

No problem. :)

If I remember correctly, it was stated at one of the shows that he is, in fact, NOT a TRU exclusive. Basically, whoever will carry him, they'll have 'em sell him. Problem is, as we've seen in 2013/14, none of the big box B&M retailers are willing to take a chance on him, aside from Costco in a last ditch effort to have something for the holiday season, and TRU, of course.

I'd say we can expect to mail order this guy or make a trip to our local TRU. I'd imagine Wally World and Target (pronounced Tar-zhay (in my circles) for craps and giggles) will again back out. From what I hear, TRU and Target are splitting the Power Rangers Legacy line and those are very expensive, and generally large, items. I can't imagine them giving Hasbro/Transformers the same courtesy.

I still don't understand why Wal*Mart will carry that ridiculous Ninja Turtles playset (roughly the same price point) and overstock on it (which did finally sell out, crazy!) but they won't have their stores carry a handful of Titan Class items. I always see PR selling like crazy, plenty of empty shelves and pegs through most show runs, but TFs? Oh, you'll always be able to find a Transformer here and there in the aisle. I know they tend to target the same (and also not) demographic, but it's just not working, at least not in my area. Transformers just aren't the big seller they were circa 2007.

It's a non movie year, plain and simple. I've seen it happen every year after a movie.

Has anyone seen this? Video by CautionLowSign from TFW



He's gonna friggin' huge! Those hands are about the size of a baby's! It's like Hasbro had a look at all the 3rd Party combiners, including Warbotron and then went "HA! See if you can get BIGGER than THIS!"
