EXTENSIVE GALLERY OF ALL VEHICLES AND LARGE DEVASTATOR PICS
ROTF Devastator - a set on Flickr

so here's the text review, while I wait impatiently for youtube to finish uploading

Pros:
- he's a monster, huge! about 13 ½ inches when hunched over
- great sound chip (in mixmaster) he says a few lines of text and sounds while in Devastator mode...the voice clips are random, same one might sound off several times in a row, but still, very extensive. the sound chip/lights are all in Mixmaster. Removing him and TFing him into his cement mixer triggers the "transform" sound effect. While in truck mode, mixmaster makes a few random machine type noises.

all seem to have the vacuum / vortex noise and then....
1) an evil laugh
2) "destroy"
3) I am... Decepticon!! (WTF is that?)
4) Devastator, Destroy!
5) yeah ahaha autobots (I think)
6) I am....Devastator (odd that's similar to #3)
7) Devastator, Destroy Autobots!


- solid. He's about 7 to 8 pounds
- ratcheting shoulder joints
- ratcheting elbow joints
- ratcheting hips
- some articulation in "fingers"
- quite movie accurate

Cons:
- really weak vehicle modes (pretty much blocks of plastic)
- little to no paint apps (hightower is solid yellow)
- sorta "back heavy" (mixmaster is heavy
- hightower arm is very blocky looking. they couldv'e made it a little smaller and it would have balanced better with the other arm (scrapper)
- Demolisher is called Scavenger on the instructions
- Price is too high, should be closer to 50-60 USD in my opinion
- Knees are on hinge joints and pretty much locked where they are in order to support the weight
- Ankles are also on hinges, and render useless because of all the weight on him
- Walking on all 4s is going to require some heavy modding
- Demolisher looks like a nike shoebox with treads on it
- noice trigger on mixmaster is too sensitive while in truck mode.

All in all, I think this guy's great. he'd make an AWESOME centerpiece to any movie fan's collection, a must have. I see huuuuge potential for this guy getting lots of repaint and kit bashing action, and wish I didn't have to sleep so I can get to that.

So, all that money and the vehicle modes aren't even that good? If they can't be robots, the components should at least look nice as construction equipment.

The mouth is pretty cool. For the price though I want way mor gimick.

Maybe if it could eat a legend or a Scout and shoot it out the back...
I had a $4 launcher/track dealy from KB that would fit perfect inside there.

Before that gets dismissed, remember Stratosphere who cost $22 has a miniPrime.

Also, why couldn't these have individual Bot modes? I see plent of room to work with.

so a hundred big ones nets you some of the crappiest alt modes this side of a fast action battler, hinged knees and ankles (honestly hasbro, WTF!!!), and a combined mode that is only slightly taller than RID omega prime and actually shorter than Armada Unicron (based on measurements alone).....seems like a good bargain to me :roll

Not to call you out, but if you see plenty of room to work with, then can you post a pic of Rampage in, as best as you can get it, leg mode? I just want to see if it can be done.
