Can confirm, found the only one in the whole city of El Paso, Texas yesterday and nabbed him to complete my Devastator. He’s definitely a big, chonky boi :shock:

Do you think Siege Springer and T30 Arcee would be good examples of what we would expect going by what you just defined?


I'd say that's the general idea. Many Siege and ER figures are already "mini MP". But I'd want brand new molds for the SS line. Maybe for Arcee, an improvement of her ER version.

I don't mind overload coming in last. As mentioned, this guy is the keystone of the combiner, and I want them to get him right!

I misread the news article as G1 Liokaiser found in walmart...to have my hopes raised and dashed due to lack of coffee. Cries. At least people can complete their Devys now.

Hoping Springers a bit more accurate in vehicle mode this time but also half expecting repacks of WFC stuff in studio series boxes :(

I do, of course we'll see for ourselves when they're revealed.

I wonder if they'll continue to do the diorama backdrops in the box for the 86 series.

As tempted as I would be to pick it up if I saw it in the wild i can wait for my Target pre-order when they were selling him at $30

I really need Target or Amazon to get this guy in already. I'm getting impatient now that he is showing up in stores.

I bet SS86 will come with backdrops, it's a staple, but i still wish SS86 didn't exist even as an idea

I found one at my Walmart a couple of days ago but did not pick it up as I have it preordered from Target.com for $29.99 (vs. the $49.99 it was going for at Walmart). Saving $20 is worth the wait for me.

looks like we got a first glimpse of the Devastator boxset.
I found the pic on Facebook, but I don't know the original source.

Looks like he won't have a different deco/accessories, so it's an easy pass for those who already got him, but surely a nice surprise for those who had issues finding some of the members like Scrapmetal.

EDIT: looks like he has some different deco. Long Haul looks like he has some dust effect painted on the truck bed.

Neat for those who want the whole shebang in one go, but thankfully not necessary for me to get, considering I just completed my Devastator like two days ago.

He comes with Skipjack instead of Rampage.

Which hardly matters since Skipjack is coming out in a month here anyway.

disappointed actually. Was hoping for some alternate decos or something.

Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user, MadProject has shared an interesting image with us all, that of our possible first look at the rumoured boxset containing all eight Transformers Studio Series Constructicons! The box lists the release as SS-69.

Image

While MadProject found the image on Facebook, Instagram user, seton2345 also has been sharing it, with no mention where they got it from in the accompanying Instagram post.

While this image could turn out to be a clever fake, it does show how big a box would be needed for all the constructicons to fit in. One thing to note is that while the picture quality isn't great enough to make any judgement on the decos of the figures, Skipjack is part of the group as per the movie avd there appears to be weathering on Long Haul.

What do you think of this? Do you think this is legitimate or not? Where you expecting different colour schemes? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

(If this turns out to be real) I'm actually kind of glad the decos are more or less the same, And not too noticeably different from the individual releases. It would be a real kick in the head to people who bought the individual releases, Only to have a heavily improved deco'd one appear after the fact in a new box set (which has happened before). Anyway, It'll be nice for anyone wanting to complete Devastator all in one purchase.

Sorry, couldn't resist. But the box set does look pretty amazing.

the only thing is giving me questions, is that the box itself looks more square-ish, while the plastic bubble looks more rectangular.
I wonder if there will be some extra stuff of sort with him.
Like, as incentive for the purchase, a weapon pack for the Studio Series figures, like they did with Centurion Drone.

Devastator boxset is neat, I'm interested to see some better pictures of it since we can see the weathering on Long Haul.

I'm actually quite liking Topspin too, they really nailed the sculpted detail, the transformation has some neat stuff (like the wheel flip in the legs), and I like that it includes all the weapons. The arms are a little long, but I don't have much in terms of complaints other than that. Very excited to get Topspin and paint it up!

My Scavenger was also delivered back home today! It'll be a while before I have it, but it's nice to know that it was delivered.

I suspect that box is not the final version since the art/image is the old render we first saw it one of the toy fairs ages ago. Also, even if the decos are somewhat different or weathered, won't be upset since it can't be better then my custom paint job on each one so far ;)^
