Let us introduce some Mandarin to your Sunday morning routine, with the first long video review of the upcoming Generations Combiner Wars Titan Class Devastator, via Zhen Yan Reviews on YouKu. The video is entirely in Mandarin, but we get a fairly detail look as the two reviewers show off each individual Constructicon (Scrapper, Hook, Bonecrusher, Scavenger, Long Haul and Mixmaster), in both vehicle and robot mode - as we have seen several times before, including NY Toy Fair. The big Green itself will be featured in a second video, it seems - so take some time to check out the single transformations, below!

Perhaps..

That is unfortunate. :-(

Works fine for me, it just takes a long while to load (it's an hour long!) and I got two commercials before that. It doesn't stream properly though as it likes to pause.

I'm using FireFox with all the necessary addons.

I am still not feeling this Devastator.

That airborne-kicking-Metroplex pic shows that the combined form has excellent poseability... Overall, the combined mode looks pretty great. (Except I think the Mixmaster foot looks a bit small.)

And the vehicle modes.. five of the six are pretty great. (Again, not feeling Mixmaster.)

But I just still feel that too much was sacrificed on the individual robot modes. I know that they probably had to do this to stay on budget. But still, it feels lacking to me.

Maybe if the figure was smaller, so that the gestalt was about the same size as other Combiner Wars gestalts, the flaws in the individual robot modes would seem more forgivable. (And then, also, I wouldn't have the problem I do with his size!)

For many people, this will be a great Devastator. And for those people, I am happy that this exists. But for me... Well, I'm just glad that I'd already gone with another (third party) option before this was ever announced. (I don't like going third party when there is an official option.)

Wow, that video player is all sorts of terrible.

I guess I didn't realize how hollow they actually are. I guess it makes sense given it's size, you wouldn't want any more weight than absolutely necessary.

Also that dude's fingernails grossed me out. O_o

I also caught his fingenails, they startled me in a way.

Well, this confirms what I previously said, the kibble forearms are stored on the back of long haul.

Good call. What is that black thing that folded up from Bonecrusher's Butt?

These guys are awesome as all get out. I'm loving that bow action Scrapper is sporting.

That guy sure took his time transforming them... I wonder if they'll do a combining video follow up? :-?

It can't be coincidence that there's enough designed features and details on Mixmaster to make him work either as a flat nose cab with front exit bucket, or long nose cab with rear exit bucket (i.e. Geewun).

true if i had choose i still perfer titant class devastator smaller class combiners look short and stumpy arms are longer than legs bend them over on all fours look like gorillas, devastator looks normal his aarms go above knee joint not past knee joint as defensor and others. devastator will be one combiner i buy. if there was way to extend legs out longer on smaller combiners i buy them
