Today Show Previews Devastator

Via TFormers, below is the video from the Today Show from yesterday where they showed off a few toys from Toy Fair including Devastator. At the 2:15 point is when the Devastator segment starts and goes for about 45 seconds. At one point the presenter says "...these six vehicles you can do anything with. These are transforming and fun as well." I think the person was confused and didn't realize that the information from Hasbro is there are going to be at least two versions of the Constructicons, those merge (the one in the video) and those that transform but do not merge. Either way, the video gives you a good look at the $100 toy.

  2. I was surprised to see this kind of toy hit that show circuit. I can;t imagine anyone watching that show being interested in Transformers.

    Guess I shouldn't stereotype.

  3. Sadly, I think the brain wave controlling thing is cooler than Devastator. :(

    You understand why it's costing $100? I don't. It's honestly not that big, seriously. Definitely not two feet tall as we previously heard. Secondly, the robots can't even transform into individual robot modes. Finally, it looks very cheap and horribly engineered. I mean hell, look how big, awesome and feature packed Unicron was and he didn't cost that much.

  6. I wanna buy all of that.

    I'd hack everything together and...

    Use the brain wave doohickey to drive the Constructicons by Lego's remote control system, merge them into Devastator, and then spout candy necklaces out of his gaping mouth. That'd be pretty awesome, dude.

  9. The Unicron toy didn't have lots of lights and motors. Isn't this one supposed to be mechanical?

  10. I want that brain wave thingy.
    And she called Devastator cute? Clearly she has no idea who she's dealing with

  11. I am more concerned with the brain wave device. I believe it was Val Kilmer playing as Bruce Wayne once upon a time ago that told Edward Nygma that "Stimulating neurons... tampering with people's brainwaves... it just raises too many questions."

  12. Is Devastator going to be sold with both the full Robot mode and also the vehicles or is it sold as just the robot and then the vehicle sold seperately?

    I can see a $100 price tag if they are all sold together.

    It's vechicles that can turn be combined into Devastator, but can't transform into their ividual robot mode :P

  15. Did you notice in the video review of Devastator, Demolisher its there on the table?
    So those few decepticons under his protection are the other 4 constructicons to create DEVASTATOR?
    Looks carefully the video, seems like demolisher is only the main torso of devastator. (the Ready Mix Truck is just the head seated on it)

  16. Can this look like something different if you move it all around?

    I find it so interesting to watch mature women talk about little children's toys. I would love to bone than woman in blue.

  18. if they could transform AND combine in the same toy, then it would be much more worth it.
