If you're unfamiliar with MakeToys, the make, um, well... toys. More precisely, they make unlicensed Transformers toys. The one that has caught the eyes of fans, and other makers as well, is their take on the original combiner of the Transformers series, Devastator. Aptly named "Giant", MakeToys has been rather quiet about each individual robot of this behemoth but they have finally revealed all six members of this combiner.
All six still carry the same construction vehicle type as found in the original Devastator but have a greater level of detail, of course. Compare to TFC Toys version of the six robot team, I like the more slender and detailed designs by MakeToys. I think it's even cooler that they have robot designs that are a little more unique as compared to the original toys. Really, I'd prefer to have this collection in robot form rather than the combined Giant form because of these different designs.
Still no details on pricing and release dates. Hopefully it won't be US$100 for each member like what TFC Toys' version is going for. That's just insane! But at the same time, it's still unlicensed. But it's so cool! Argh! What does one do? ...well, at least I still have TakaraTomy's Encore Devastator. While I have this internal struggle, what do you think? Forget morals, you're getting it? If the price is right? Or unlicensed is still unlicensed?
