Is the red-headed Devastator just the Japanese release, or is that coming to America as well?
I hadn't actually looked at the individual vehicles before now. Mixmaster looks a bit bloated in the mixer, doesn't he? Unless it's just a bad camera angle.

As far as I know, the red-faced Devastator is a Japanese release only.

Oh God! Not the mighty, unforgettable Fearswoop in his epic, memorable battle with Mudflap and Sideswipe? How can such nerve-shredding excitement be contained in just a single box?

Apparently, according to the bio, Fearswoop ingested some sort of funky energy source or somesuch, making him grow into a large size, thus justifying why they packed him with Legends Mudflap and Sideswipe...

But how do they justify reusing that rather meh-tastic mold? :p

Eww! Wideload is horribly bland looking. Beige and gray? I definitely need to hunt down the Red Bull version of that mold now.

Bio has connection to the Jungle Ironhide figure we've seen pics of. Not only does he have MechAlive, but also Hidden Scabbard!

So the subline imprint's name is "NEST - Global Alliance"?

Yeah, that really doesn't make sense since NEST went all over the world already in the movie. They were pretty "global" already. But, if this Global Alliance thing has to do with other countries being involved, then maybe if Ironhide gets a Human Alliance run, the human character will be "international."

Although what with the shoddy writing on the movie, maybe it's too much to expect continuity and detail in the toy bios.

Ft. Smith's Target store finally got Bruticus Maximus in. Sadly no money and there are only four of him. I like the toned down, darker colors to him better than the brighter ones. It simply is amazing how nice a toy looks when it's a bit darker.
