mib Devastator, c-8.5

Devastator is the bizarre combination of the constructicons: Team Leader Scrapper, Hook, Bonecrusher, Long Haul, Mixmaster and Scavenger. Released in 1985, this six-robot giftset were made available in many markets, including the US, Japan, and several European countries. Devastator's forearms are also spring-loaded missile launchers, able to fire his fists as well as his drill attachments. He also comes armed with a large purple laser rifle. Hook and Scavenger's pistols can also be easily added to him for a little extra firepower. While the others' pistols can be added as well, they're not in very useful positions. Unlike the later Scramble City-style combiners, Devastator's limbs cannot be rearranged into any other configurations.
Devastator was purchased online with the help of my friend, Jeff, who helped me greatly in the bidding of the toy. Apart from the usual shelfwear for vintage boxes, the box is generally in good condition. Another great addition to my combiners collection.

Hi, happened to bump in and find your collection of transformers fascinating, especially the Decepticons.
