M.A.S.S. Device Toy


Recommended Posts

I got the first 2 boxed sets today that have the pieces to build the M.A.S.S. Device and noticed the containers that hold the elements are empty. I remember seeing pics online where the containers had the elements in them. I know Cobra Comander comes with a container that has the red crystals in it, but does anyone know who will come with the other 2, or when they might be released?

 

Maybe this is their way of making sure our M.A.S.S. Devices are as difficult to complete as they were for GI Joe and Cobra.

Current speculation runs that the canisters will be packed with two other re-paints like CC version 134, just to force consumers to buy more product. No official word yet though.

 

I'm quite thankful I have no interest in completing the device.

I've had the same thoughts about the canisters. I'm still on the fence as to whether or not to pick up the CC that comes with the canister of crystals. Part of me hates the idea of having to by yet another CC, but it would also be nice to have the crystal canister for the MASS device.

My suggestion: go to the nearest fabric or craft store, pick up a couple of their colored beands, paint them as required, and shove them into the empty canisters. Its cheeper, and you get fewer repaint figs.

Before getting the set, I wondered why Cobra Commander even came with a canister of those crystals. I assumed it was just so you could display him holding it.

 

Nope, hasbro's more evil than that. Its another marketing ploy to sell even more re-paints.

I peeked through the orangy clear part of the canister that came with radiated Snake Eyes and thought the piece inside was the red orange element to go in the mass device canister so I tried to pry it open, but it wouldn't budge. I don't think I'll force it, I can make custom elements easily enough. This slight disappointment was swallowed up with the joy that I found recognizing that the weather dominator sits nicely atop the mass device parts so far.

Leaked retailer lists indicate the last two element pieces will be included with other single figures:

Cobra Diver w/ Heavy Water element

Tripwire w/ Desert element

 

No word yet if these are accurate or when they'll see release, but I think it is safe to say if they are coming they'll be out before Christmas.

The only rumor we've heard thus fas is that Tripwire may be repainted for Wave 8 2008 (Wave 12 overall), including one of the other two elements.

 

Seeing as how both Waves 7 and 8 of 2008 have been revealed, and none of those figures come with a MASS Device piece, both will probably be included with Wave 8. There's also rumors of a Falcon repaint coming in that wave (every fourth wave of this line is a Filler wave consisting mostly of repaints or re-releases).

Hey this is great question thats been on my mind. Everytime i see CC with the crystals i wonder if I should get him for the crystals. A mass devie is WORTHLESS without ALL the Crystals. So is CC the only way to get the PINK crytals Cuz if it is Im gonna get him next time I see him Peg Warming Walmart.

As I suggest above Obiprime, it may be cheeper just to buy a couple beads from the craft section at wally in the colors you need to fill the canisters.

So Tripwire will be released on a single card? So I don't have to bother picking up the CC & Tripwire Comic pack...

The last I saw about the single Tripwire said something about Desert Tripwire. So if you want him in his original colors you might want the comic pack. I'd wait and see what the other looks like first. By the time we see protos the comic pack should still be available. I figured the single Tripwire might be a Tiger Force with improvements like Duke and Flint got, maybe different arms and legs and the HISS Driver body.

 

I bet the Cobra Diver is a re[ainted Eel to look like the MASS Device generic Cobra divers. That would make sense to have them come with the heavy water too.

You know I would buy a tripwire if he was a single card. Heck if it is this much to gettign the entire MASS Device, Think GOD they never released the B.E.T. @smilepunch@

 

The Weather Dominator was released all together. I don't see why the BET couldn't be as well.

The Weather Dominator seems slightly oversized to be able to be used as props. How would a figure the size of Spirit haul that fragment up a cliff under one arm? And the MASS Device seems a bit small despite coming in multiple pieces. The whole point of making them into actual pieces of plastic is so I can reenact all the scenes from a ridiculous cartoon plot from my childhood! =)

Well let's give Hasbro some points for doing them, and some slack for size.

 

If you have watched the MASS Device recently, you'll remember that the MASS Device was bigger than 2 Hiss tanks and a group of soldiers. So to make it "accurate" in scale for us, it would be huge and expensive.

 

As for the weather dominator, well I chalk that up to what I call "transformeritis". Just like in the Transformers cartoon, scale seemed to shift from one scene to the next with the weather dominator. I mean how can Spirit carry a piece, and then Destro needs to sit in a chair behind it to work the dominator?
