Rumor: Revenge of the Fallen Devastator Gestalt Toy Information

lh

2005 Boards member S250, who has consitently provided accurate information to the site, reports meeting with a local agent in Asia who had some information regarding the Devastator Gestalt toy for the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen line. According to this local agent, the Devastator gestalt will feature a robot that combines with transformable construction vehicles that have no robot mode to form the giant, combined robot. This type of combination would be similar to that used by Energon Optimus Prime in the past. The local agent also said that each component of Devastator would receive a Deluxe-class version that could transform from vehicle to robot but does not combine with the other components. If true, it looks like collectors will have the choice of collecting a gestalt and/or collecting the individual components of Devastator.

    At local agent clearance event,I met their product manager.He gave me a little blur information about Devastator.
    We have some rumor and speculations about Devastator likes Energon Optimus Prime,and his words proved this.In the Gestalt version,most construction vehicles just transformable drones as a part of Devastator,no robot mode.
    These vehicles will get Deluxe version,can transform to robots,but I think Deluxe version can't combine.
    And he's not very sure about the members number.

    And he mentioned Optimus Prime and Jetfire combine,but no details.

    So... Devastator's toy is nothing more than a glorified Voltron?

    ... I hope that isn't the case.

    My initial reaction was something along the lines of 'Why the *expletive deleted* not?'.

    It then occurred to me that Hasbro don't have the time to engineer a gestalt. IIRC it was said after the last movie that Hasbro would have more involvement in the design process this time around.

    This news suggests otherwise. I hope it turns out to be misinformation.

    Seven robots combining into one was way too ambitious for them to make into one set of interacting toys at a size/price/avialablity ratio that would have even worked much less pleased everyone.

    I imagine it'll go, big Devy that breaks down into chunks which only convert into vehicles and the smaller deluxe versions of the individual vehciles that S250 has mentioned.

    .

    Ambitious was definitely one of the words that came to mind.
