There's no images shown but they have listed the MSRP price of 10,700 Yen / $132 USD as the price. The figure is listed to be released in Japan only on November 19, 2011.

Shit, our dollar really sucks. I got the KO Devastator last year for $45.

Thats a good price. I have been wanting to get that but cant find it for less that 100. $132 is OK to me for a legit release though. Actually glad I held out.

Wasnt Devs on the list of broken/lost molds at one point?

This could be real bad news for the not-devastator toy coming out. I for one would not get a third party toy when a reissue is coming out. I could see how some would be really enthusiastic about the larger scale update though. Either way, this has been an expensive year, and it looks like it is going to get worse.

 

Hasnt anyone heard that the economy is rough out there?

I got the Big Lots KOs of Devastator and Defensor for $8 a piece last year. Didn't they reissue G1 Devastator back in 06 or 07?

If I didn't already have an original G1 Devy, I would be all over this. I wonder what "differences" this one will have to distinguish itself against the original like all the other Encores have?

Noper, old Devy hasn't been released since G2.

 

Man, I can get a Devy in my choice of colors for about 5$. I even got a WST version a while back. Though a official release does offer those nice things like Hook having a face again and those metal pins used in the construction, and don't forget those wacky stickers.
