Didn't know that someone else had posted about the Combiner Wars Constructions review.

The team looks good, the limitations are expected but no matter. He's a cheaper alternative for those of us who can't afford the third party combiner teams. Hope to get them if able.

Wow that was something! :DANCE: There were some flaws like any other TF but this CW line and the combiners is the best line yet IMO.

I can honestly say that I forgive HasTak for all the bullsh*t combiners they have given us in the past few lines...we are friends again HasTak and I. :P

Now c'mon Takara lets see what you have planned for our beloved Devastator...please!! :PRAY: :VEHI:

True indeed. The entire 'Power Core Combiner' line was mistake from the drawing board, and FoC Bruticus... well, at least they tried. Or did they, looking at that thing it's hard to tell...

I suspect Hasbro just got tired of seeing 3rd party companies coming out with bigger/better combiners, seeing people making money off them, and not being part of the action. Whatever the reason, I'm glad they finally got their act together and have started making some decent combiners...

That video got me really excited. For all the flaws, this set looks magnificent.

That review was EPIC. I'm very thankful for the time and care that went into making it. Sadly the message for me was to steer clear of this behemoth. If Hasbro really went the extra mile for tight joints and whatnot...why was there no extra attention paid to the fact that the functionality of intended vehicles modes are overlooked. I'm sorry I'm not buying another figure where tolerances were ignored to the point that individual figures do not roll in vehicle mode. Additional paint apps are not going to make this figure shine any brighter. Takara cannot do anything to fix tolerance issues. This set is an easy pass. =; Total Bummer. EPIC Fail. Slag.

Well that review certainly was just about as English as you could get. Guess I'm waiting for the Takara version for sure now.

Very thorough, very well done review with little time wasted. Only part I didn't understand is when he claimed to prefer the retail deco over the SDCC deco, and then in the very next breath complained about the tire rims not being painted....a major feature of the SDCC edition.

If my snark translator is working correctly, I believe the point he was attempting to make is that we Transformers fans fell in love with the franchise even when first-generation toys were unequivocally worse toys than what we are getting today. Yet there are those among us that believe that what Hasbro has been serving us with this Devastator is the pinnacle of cheap, lazy toy design in spite of the fact that had we received this toy in 1984 it would have been held as the greatest robot toy ever conceived in our wildest imaginations.

But my snark translator might be a bit out of tune. >:oP

Probably some Pre-Transformer thing since the line started properly in 1984. :P

On the mark. Some people................well you can't please despite whatever else you do. Don't know if it's for the sake of complaining or just trolling.

I keep on repeating this in my previous posts....back in the G1 days, we had to use this while squinting our eyes.......

Image

G1 Bumble didn't look like his show counterpart until the Takara TFC 2004 release. Did we complain back then?

Now, we have advanced engineering technologies and still people are complaining.....on something NOT RELEASED yet! #-o

If the complaint is about design faults like for example, Ironhide henkei drooping head or MP09 exploding shoulders..........justified.

After Ben's review I will still wait and see what Tak is going to come out with but if Im not blown away by the extras... this bad bot is mine. Great review, joints were an issue I was worried about so glad the review focused on them :BOWDOWN:

"That should just sit plush"

THAT'S NOT HOW YOU PRONOUNCE FLUSH.

:BANG_HEAD: That review triggered my inner grammar Nazi a bit.


That aside, Great review. To the point. Less than half the length of the chinese one with the dude who had disgusting fingernails.

I'm really hyped for this figure, and I can't wait to have him in hand. I wish I could get my hands on the SDCC version though, as I'm so tempted to bust out a paint brush to add little details in, and I know I'll end up doing too much and making a mess of it.
