My grandma stored her valuables in the freezer, wrapped in foil. When I was visiting her and my grandpa in 2007, she gave me money as a parting gift. I decided to keep the foil so that I can remember this.
Devastator, the Decepticon combiner formed by the six Constructicons, is one of the few toys that I brought with me from Hong Kong. It is a toy that is now over 20 years old, and I’d say it’s held up pretty well over the years. Other than the fact that it is 20+ years old, another reason that it is valuable to me is that I had to collect each Constructicon one at a time. Not all stores had all Constructicons, with some being more common than others. Before I collected them all, I remember combing through the displays at the stores to see if I could “build” out Devastator (not that my parents would let me buy all six at once). Most of the time, I was unable to find them all. It was definitely awesome to finally find the last one and complete the set.
Below you will find some photos that were taken earlier this year (2011). I don’t know if I will disassemble Devastator to photograph the individual Constructicons. For now, enjoy Devastator!
