Our favorite aussie Burn told us that today marks the big day that Combiner Wars Devastator is available in Australia. Karniv8l Prme on Ozformers was so happy, he took a few pics to remember this day by. These also show us how Devastator is packaged inside his box with cardboard. This Devastator as found at a chain called Big W for 198$ AUD (152$US).

Lol, I honestly thought that was Burn in the thumbnail, making good on the 'rubbing or noses in it' :lol:
Well, good for them, it looks like a fun figure to have.

I never thought I would say this, but that's a pretty nice Walmart. XD

That's a proud man right there.

Nice to see simpler, what I would hope is also cost-reducing, packaging. It continues to bemuse and frustrate me why toys are tied, taped and trapped in their packaging as if Hasbro believes the toys will jump out during transit! (they're not Woody or Buzz, after all...)

So the big guy is out in the wild? What's the expected release for U.S, and dare I ask...here in the U.K? :shock:

(Although I'm leaning towards Takara's...sorry.)

Got Mine!! Burn how many were in your shop? Rocky only appeared to have space for 3 at most on its display which was a little underwhelming for a limited exclusive release.

Hasbro saw Small Soldiers, dude. They know better than to leave that to chance.

Besides, who HASN'T made an action figure dramatically rip it's way out of the packaging?

How is it a limited exclusive release?

Big W apparently have the right to sell this in the Australian markets for a short period before it becomes available to other Australian market stores like K-Mart and Target with their catalogue even stating "FIRST AT BIG W".

I've heard it's because they're all shipped worldwide and what-not. These things need to go from the Chinese factory, to the ship, all the way across the ocean, onto a truck and then wherever... and still look pretty on a shelf. Too many bumps jostle the toys around I guess... I blame all those MIB Collectors ;)

Selling it in an enclosed box... No problems there! :D

There are no Walmarts here, that place is called Big W (owned by the Woolworths supermarket chain.)

None at my local, but left my details so I'll get a call when it arrives

Not sure I get it, what am I supposed to be seeing here? He is facing the same direction as bonecrusher?

Yeah, but it's less obvious that the mixing barrel is turned around from G1. With the smoke stacks (on the actual rear) and windows, and the actual front hidden by the packaging, he looks almost like his G1 self again.

So, the GEEWUNNERS can be happy with the new Devy, as long as they keep Mixmaster in the packaging.

(Just being a bit goofy with the observation.) 8-}

Think he means that mixmaster looks like his G1 incarnation from that angle looking down into the box. Indeed, he does actually look like it, with the pseudo-windows and smokestacks.

@Agamemnon: it would've looked G1 to me if the window was unbroken, that gap means it still looks wrong.
