Doesn't make any sense at all though. The Universe Devastator set is already a KB Exclusive, so why re-release the exact same thing under the Energon line two or three months after releasing the Universe version?

Coz Universe is dead?

That seems to be the general consensus anyway.

Why is it dead anyway?

Because not enough people buy it, I guess.

Then again, it doesn't have a cartoon backing it, nor is it really advertised.

Five?! I thought there were six of them!!

And another thing. How big are they? Smaller than the original ones? Equal to Energon Strongarm for example? Smaller?

Ah, I already got so excited....

They're repaints of the Sixbuilder team, originally released as Japan-only toys during Operation Combination (late-end G1). Plus, they're "Micromasters". One of them is about the size of a standard G1 Micromasters, which should be about the same size as modern-day Mini-Cons.

Well, in this case...

Thanks for explaining all the details though.

Hm, so much for Devastator. I guess I'll find now something else to get excited about.

If they sold them as a set, I'd consider. They're not worth more than a couple of quid apiece, though...

Energon "constructicon" micromasters are now available in Finland. Sold individually (1 micromaster + combiner piece) for 6.50 euros per toy. The store that has those is expensive, so I hope price will be a bit more sensible in other stores.

God... 6.50? That's diabolical. I managed to fenangle a Sixbuilder off ebay for 8 [er, E12?] and felt robbed. The thing's generally below par, there's no reason for there to be six of them besides Fivebuilder sounding even stupider... and to be honest, I'd be even less receptive to them beind recoloured as lime Opal Fruits and shoe-horned with G1 names.

Mind, I might get a couple, so Sixbuilder looks a little bit more like he's meant to. God, I wish Takara would stop ****ing up reissues so they don't clash with their idiotic premiums...

Actually only three of the little ones have the G1 names. They pulled the other three out of there ass or something . . . I think one's called Buckethead . . .
