Coming via Josue Cahua of the Transformers Colombia Facebook group, we've got a word of warning about Titan Class Devastator tonight. While we haven't been able to track the original source yet, an image was posted showing Mixmaster severely cracked, with an attached warning to not over extend the Devastator ankle tilt joint. We can't know how likely this is to happen in general, or if this resulted from pushing the toy beyond its clear limits. But we want to make sure everyone is aware to be on the lookout and take care with Devastator's left leg. Keep reading to see the full image!

Among the more interesting points is confirmation of fan theories that Devastator, at least to Hasui, is also effectively a stand-in for a Masterpiece version of the character. There's a lot of great material in here, so click through to read more!

We here at TFormers would like to take a quick time out today to send our well wishes on to celebrated voice actor Peter Cullen, who turns (an impressively young-looking) 74 years old today. While of course in our fandom he is and always will be best known for the voice of Optimus Prime, he'd had a great career outside of the various iterations of that role, including Dungeons & Dragons, GI Joe, and of course the voice of Eeyore in numerous Winnie The Pooh animations. Happy birthday, and thank you for all you've given us!
