Blog #338: Toy Reviews: Transformers Kre-O Micro-Changers Combiner Devastator (Bonecrusher, Scavenger, Scrapper, Mixmaster)

I’ve put up reviews of all four Micro-Change Combiners, Bruticus, Devastator, Predaking, and Superion. There are links to my other Kre-O blogs at the end of the review.

Transformers Kre-O Micro-Changers Combiner Devastator (Bonecrusher, Scavenger, Scrapper, Mixmaster)

Bonecrusher has one of the best vehicle modes from all the Micro-Changer Combiners.  Unfortunately, in robot mode his chest art is covered.

Scavenger

Scavenger really isn’t great.  His robot mode would be, but his chest art is covered up.  Vehicle mode isn’t horrible, but I think they would have been  better off with something different than his robot head and helmet at the front.

Scrapper

Scrapper’s robot mode is great.  He’s the only one in the set that doesn’t have his art covered.  Vehicle mode could have used a few more parts, but isn’t too bad.

Mixmaster

Unfortunately, his vehicle mode isn’t a cement mixer.  I suppose that would have been too hard to pull off.  Robot mode has the chest art covered up.

These combiners are awesome.  They gave him a few great details, like the steam shovel on his shoulder and the truck front for his left foot.  The only thing that is a problem, and it is on all the combiners, is the lack of real hands.  The Kreon legs aren’t awful.  You’re dealing with a limited number of parts, so I can forgive the hands.

Overall:  Three out of four members having their art covered up really sucks, but he’s otherwise really great, and for $10-$12, you really can’t beat the price.  It should also be noted, that Hook is available in the first wave of Micro-Changer blind buys.  Hopefully we’ll get a Long Haul in one of the upcoming waves of blind buys to complete the team.

Here are my previous reviews of the 2011 and 2012 Kre-O sets, Micro-Changers Preview and First Series, and the Toys R Us exclusive Ironhide. Here are links to the newest Kre-O toy reviews, Beast Blade Optimus Prime, Battle Net Bumblebee, Dragon Assault, Mech Venom Strike, and Ripclaw Strike.

Thanks for reading!
