Default Encore Devastator to have new head - not Gen2 yellow

Last month it was reported that the upcoming Reissue/Encore Devastator could be in Gen2 yellow to warrant a re-reissue of the set, but now it appears that it will again be Gen1 green, but just with a new head to mimic the cartoon head-sculpt.

A new head is nice, but for those who already have Devastator, or the "recent" reissue set, a new colour would make it more worth doubling up on the mould.
I guess they calculated that they would sell more in the same Gen1 green, than they would in the more obscure Gen2 yellow.

I think the purple looks darker too. And, Mixmaster has his purple mixer. I like it!

Disappointing. I would have bought yellow, not this.

At least I now have a slightly better chance of not buying a knockoff. Price?

Why don't you get the first release of Encore Devastator?

That's what I was thinking. That new head looks alright though. Shame shipping from BBTS sucks for it, IMHO.

Lol +1 They should of just included a new head as an extra in the 1st release which I didn't buy because I already have the original. So Im torn on buying this one as well. Why couldn't they just do him in movie colors and throw in a couple of new heads, a movie one and a classics one, would of been far more interesting. Oh well maybe when the finished product is released its going to look sharp.

That's basically all it is.
