And if they can pull it off, then their complaints will be justified.

The toy designers at Hasbro and Takara are people too, they can't do the impossible. If anything, they're going out of the way and doing extra work to make sure fans can get the best of both worlds and can have two sets of solid toys instead of one giant jumbled-up mess. I still hear people complaining about the unstable Energon Superion combiner - and look how simple he was!


Dude..that was brilliant. :grin: I want to buy you a drink. Actually...I think I already owe you one, so I'll just run a tab.. :-)

Sweet everloving mother of... :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: That movie combined form is going to be simply enormous. HUGE! Those are not small vehicles by any stretch of the imagination. Good grief, his SHOULDER is an articulated dumptruck? Those things are easily 25-30 feet long...but it makes total sense for a joint...same with an excavator for the other shoulder.

Oh please oh please let's see concept art soon...

THis means he is formed by 6 robots and one crane part from one of these forms an arm.

Now i want to know if Bonecrusher will be part of it, he better be for continuity sake. It's enough crap they called Brawl Devastator in TF1.

I can breath easy now...


Ok that doesn't add up, going by that the legs will be short and stumpy and he will have no mid-section :?

and what happened to the 9 cons confirmed by the other 'reliable' source?

I don't mean to complain at good news but like I said it doesn't add up

I mentioned it earlyer people have and will, if the latest update turns out not to be true and we are stuck with a non combining version the kit-bashers would make it combine (I may have a go but Im no-where near compitent enough)

is it just me or does this sound like a glorified remake of 80's vehicle Voltron except with fewer transforming possibilities?

I doubt it's going to be that simple. I suspect that the "shoulders" are also going to make up a good portion of the torso. Though I have to agree that the heavy long arms and short legs tend towards a gorilla-like appearance. I could live with that i think..that type of body structure tends towards very powerful and heavily armored. :-?

I do so love speculating :grin:

I hadn't noticed that. I would guess that there probably are 9 in that case, since they need something to make up the torso. Whether those would be vehicle drones or transforming bots we'll have to wait and see.

I'm also inclined to suspect Devastator ends up with gorilla-like proportions. I have a feeling I read something suggestive of that elsewhere several weeks back. I actually wouldn't be totally against it. He'd be well set for going on a Kong-style city smashing rampage.

It may also be possible that the arms will be made of smaller size class vehicles than the legs, so it's not necessarily gorilla proportions. Construction vehicles come in all shapes and sizes. The legs could be formed from like those uber massive trucks.

considering it's hasbro I'm surprised they don't make the deluxe figures and then include a Build a figure part of that character to make a BAF Dev. like they did Fing Fang Foom

Say all you want to say about it being lame, but I would be looking forward for this movie version of Devastator. :grin:

That truck itself is 25 feet high...

Optimus is 30 feet..

if this is, in fact, true...Dev is going to be massive...maybe too massive...

If I remember correctly way back when we first heard that the Constructicons would be in the movie it was stated that the combined form would have a lot of uperbody strength like a gorilla.

Massive may be an understatement for this incarnation of the Constructicons. It occurs to me also: they may not use the name Devastator in this movie since they (mistakenly) used it in the first one. I'm betting on Constructicon Maximus (like in Energon)...but who knows for sure until it comes out? :-?

i'm thinking.... his head is a cement truck! just his HEAD!
Just that cement truck is roughly the same mass and size of optimus primes truckcab....if not more mass....
so we got a bot with a HEAD the same mass as OPPrime :shock: :shock:

this thing is gonna be HUGE ! :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

king kong? this guy is gonna make king kong look like a midget....

BRING IT!

ow btw.... if this whole thing turns out to false information to get us worked up about the movie and the constructicons don't turn up in the movie..... Bay is gonna get shot , seriously :p

No don't shoot him. We should dispose of him in the true way of the Geek:

COLLOSAL NUCLEAR WEDGIE!

I would have to agree with you, because my first thought (shooting a precision guided nuclear missile up his mis-informing ass) would, frankly, be wasting the brilliant irony that is MBay dying in a massive explosion...


JMHO, of course...

I for one don't plan on buying anymore movie toys ever. Most of them just plain sucked! Optimus and bumblebee were the only ones worth a damn.

The damn "price class" system ruins a lot of TF toys IMO. I'd like to see scale models, with detail that goes as far as the masterpiece series, but Hasbro wants to keep things cheap, so instead you get a Hummer H2 thats bigger than a GMC Topkick pickup! Also love how Jazz is larger than bumblebee.

You guys must never play with your toys or watch kids play with them. If you want something huge to sit on a shelf you will need to build it yourself. Big toys are not that much fun to play with. This is true for an adult and super-true for a child. If you have ever tried to play with Unicron or another large toy you will know what I am talking about. Big toys are cumbersome. They are slow to transform, they are hard hold while holding another toy, they are hard to interact with another toy, etc. Smaller transformers are more enjoyable to play with. Members with kids will know what I mean. Legends class toys are great fun because they are easy to hold in one hand, transform quickly, and are fairly tough (parts don't fly off when they are thrown). Kids are not all that concerned if the toys look like what is on screen. If this was true, G1 would have never made it. Kids use imagination. A seven year-old will imagine a huge, complex Devastator while he is holding an eight-inch figure. Hasbro designs these toys for kids, not adults.
