the red does do wonders for the face. seriously, if i am going to spend 100 bux on a combiner toy that size, it better have paint apps and then some. i hate the thought of the laziness and "cost savings" that hasbro does. it truthfully makes me sick to my stomach.

I was thinking of getting Dev's for my birthday this year, but now I might just wait for the premium series figure, if it means a more accurate deco.

That small change does do him wonders. Still no Decepticon insignia on Mixmaster though...

A 100 quid TF really ought to have half-decent paint apps at the very very least...

I saw a three-pack of Legends Mudflap, Legends Sideswipe and Fearswoop, a repaint of MOV Dreadwing. Is that legit?

Ack. They used the crap BB mold with one hand for the repaint? I'd rather see the other one, which isn't great, but is probably the strongest BB they've released so far imo.

I like the Legends set, and I hope they do Runabout soon. Still disappointed that they didn't repaint Cybertron Runamok (though they did give him Runabout's color scheme?). I mean yeah they're the Beavis and Butthead of transformers, but it still would've been cool.

Out in stores? That pack does indeed exist, but hasn't been sighted yet. Why shouldn't it be legit?

The Hoist/Mixmaster two-pack is also out.

Yeah, it's out here in Singapore. I thought it was a knockoff or something, as I never recalled a Fearswoop repaint... My bad.

BREAKDOWN IS AWESOME!!!

I like the blue swords and gold flame detail. It's nice because it doesn't go the standard Nemesis route. :up:

Good luck with the Prime. It's in a similar boat as the Vardia Starscreamfrom the first line, although not as drastic as buying a 100,000 Yen HDDVD (HA!) player. Amazon Japan has Prime for about... $180.

I may wait until that red-headed Devastator comes out instead of the green-headed Devastator.
