Ever since Hasbro announced the vintage Transformers line back in July, we’ve been hunting for it at every Walmart we could. We finally tracked down the Constructicons set, and we had to share it with you.
After checking numerous stores – and the website claim they wouldn’t ship it – we were able to track some sets down about an hour away just before Christmas 2018. We picked up multiple sets as you can see, and the set is nice, but it is truly amazing to be reminded of just how far the Combiner concept has come.
Devastator feels like he’s going to fall over at any moment, and that’s just from the design of the combines figure, and not a comment on the quality of this reissue. And there is also the stunning amount of ‘kibble‘ on the separate figures as well as Devastator himself.
All that aside, this set is an amazing walk down memory lane for an old Transformers fan, and a great piece of history if you’ve never experienced it before. If you can find one and you have any interest in the Transformers line, this is a must-have piece.
