ROTF Demolisher

Photobucket
Didn't add a TF post for a really long time. I didn't expect that the figures from Revenge of the Fallen come out that soon. I found Voyager Optimus Prime, Demolisher, FAB Megatron and Jolt in package! I bought the Voyager Demolisher rather than Optimus Prime as it is a new mold. I really had some hesitation on picking up Demolisher as it doesn't really have a robot mode, but as a diehard fan of Transformers, a new mold beats everything.
The vehicle mode is a excavator. As a member of the constructicons, this vehicle mode is really cool and nice. The mechanics is very detailed. I love this excavator mode very much. However, it is very disappointing that the caterpillar band is not moveable, and also the cockpit. How can it dig the mud without turning its shovel? The transformation system as a voyager toy is also too simple. For the robot mode, you can't except too much neither. Demolisher does not really have a humanoid mode, it has a single big wheel as "leg". Though it looks really like a piece of crap, I kinda like it as it is strong. With a pair of big arms, it looks like a giant gorilla! I really hope that later Hasbro will offer add-on figures to let it combine to Devastator! Anyway, lets have a look of this beast!

Bio. Constructions are stupid.

I like this boxart style.

What does this symbol mean?

This is the voyager Optimus Prime in the same wave. I hate so many repaints!

Really nice excavator mode, and very detailed. What a pity that it is not moveable.

At least have a little gimmick.

Robot mode really sucks...

Many people do not like the face sculpt of movie figures, but I like how evil they are.

Lets see how I dig out the fun of Demolisher,

Hi, my name is Patrick. I am also a TF collector. My view is that the ROTF toyline is a bg disappointment to me, eg
.Supreme Devastator that split into 6 vehicles with no robot modes. ROTF Demolisher is out of scale. As shown in the ROTF trailers, he is the Largest Constructicon.He should be least ultra or supreme size.I may buy the ROTF Leader Double Blade OP.

I agree that it is a pity there is no Devastator toy that can split to 6 separate transformable robots. Out of scale is always the problem in any TF toyline. Only those characters like Optimus Prime or Megatron can have ultra/supreme size figure. On the other hand, I prefer smaller size figures as I am living in the small place called Hong Kong...

Agreed, furthermore the Twins Mudflap and Skids have deformed faces.I may skip these 2. Sideswipe is okay, Wheelie is again out of scale. I may skip Preview BB cos I alreeady own 7 versions of Camaro Concept BB from 1st Movie line. Soundwave is a sure yes!!!I am not certain on Sideways yet.
