Seibertron member What's Crackin' sent us in news this afternoon of yet another video review from YouTube channel TonTon Review! This time, it's Studio Series 41 Deluxe Class Constructicon Scrapmetal! This character is most famous for his role in the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen film as the hapless organ donor for the revived Megatron. Now, he's a fully fledged entry into the growing Transformers Generations Studio Series line! Scrapmetal has been promoted to a spot on the Constructicon team, forming the left hand of the mighty combiner Devastator. Scrapmetal is due out later this year in the sixth overall Deluxe Class wave for the Studio Series. TonTon shows off size comparisons for alt mode and robot mode with other Transformers figures, as well as the conversion between Scrapmetal's robot mode and his construction excavator mode. TonTon also lists off some details about the sculpt and paint job of the figure before ending with a demonstration of how to transform Scrapmetal into hand mode for Devastator. Of note, Scrapmetal appears to be a hefty Deluxe sized figure, standing not too much shorter than the already apparently robustly sized Studio Series 37 Voyager Constructicon Rampage we covered a few days ago. Ze little one? Hardly! Take a look at Scrapmetal for yourself below!



What do you make of this latest entry into the Studio Series line? Is your excitement for the eventual Devastator figure growing? Let us know in the comments below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest news on all things Transformers!

Hm, Scrapmetal looks fun. Nice in both his own modes and is a chunky deluxe. Looks like he's worth a purchase even if you don't buy any other Devastator parts (as all good combiner toys should be)

When I was at LFCC 2018 where this guy was revealed, they told me Scrapmetal is based off of concept art and didn't appear in the film. The organ donor was actually Scrapper.

tfwiki says Scrapper is part of Devastator though (the yellow digger and was in previous Devastator toys), and that Scrapmetal was 'ze little one' but the Scrapmetal toy here is based off the concept art as you say

I knew this guy was a concept Decepticon, but I didn't really remember him in the movie. Always thought it was Scrapper that gets mauled :-? . Although, he was in TLK, in the junkyard right before Megatron attacks. Think he was behind Hound or something, but he was definitely in there. Anyway, really like how these Constructicons are shaping up, can't wait for more reveals! :x

Looks like a fun little deluxe and the parts forming doesn't bother me here :)

I knew he was gonna release this SS crap next despite teasing Ironhide in the Sixgun review.

Whatever I guess....

Meh, he needs to combine with a 2007 Megatron to create ROTF Megatron
"Scrapmetal" looks neat, and is one of the more interesting to me since he didn't get a full toy before.

But the Constructicons I'm most interested in seeing period are Scavenger, Overload, and Mixmaster, to see how successfully they reconcile those.

I'm looking forward to more Constructicons in general. I love the variety of designs used, and so far they are turning out really cool!

I hope they keep Hightower as the sub-humanoid pet of the team. And I really want to see a leader Scavenger and Overload

In ROTF, when we see the Decepticons on the ship, one of them is a yellow excavator that inexplicably ends up transforming into a robot mode identical to that of Scrapper, despite having a very different altmode from the Scrapper(s) we see later in the movie during the battle in the desert. This Scrapper lookalike is the one referred to by Scalpel as "ze little one" who gets killed by the other Constructicons so that his parts may be used for Megatron's resurrection.

Concept art for a completely different Construction from Scrapper altogether was later added to Scrapmetal's TFwiki page, as part of its Notes section, since it was the closest thing to (semi-)official art of what Scrapmetal's proper robot mode might look like. Eventually, on July 31, 2017, a user with a history of questionable edits moved this pic to the top of said article as its mainpic. No one caught this curious edit, and it has been postulated that this edit resulted in Hasbro looking up Scrapmetal on TFWiki, seeing that art at the top of the page, and using it as the basis for the robot mode design of this new Studio Series Scrapmetal toy.

Meanwhile, the Scrapper/Scrapmetal lookalike seen in the junkyard in TLK was an Autobot refugee hiding out there with the others, and has been given the semi-official name of "Trench" by the company who made his altmode, Catepillar, Inc.

Hey, anyone who has SS Jetfire in hand -

Is the prime chest piece that comes with Jetfire the same metallic red as on SS-05?

No the lil piece is a bit brighter and slightly more 'pinkish'.

Am I the only one that doesn't care which Constructicon did what in what movie and just wants a bunch of cool figures that turn into a big, multi-colored monster?

There's hairs to be split, so you're probably in the minority (as am I). I have no interest in getting any of these toys, but I really wanna see this thing completed. It's gonna be 'UGE! I'm excited for those that are excited.

I like it u figures for what they are, their roles in the movies aren't a concern at all. Once I have these two I'll look forward to the next two

I'm right there with you. Hell, I haven't even seen the movie, so I really don't care who did what, I just love me some combiners and this one looks to be massive, even better.

Is ok. I tried to take a photo but my camera skills and current lighting here they end up looking very similar in colour in the photo but definitely in person they look different. Why were you wondering? :)

I'm also happy for those who are enjoying the SS line, but I'm not blown away by it. I've gotten 6 figures so far, and I probably won't get more than another few. I never cared for movie Devastator because he couldn't stand upright. I liked and cheered his combination scene in RoTF but when he couldn't stand up at the end I was bummed. Oh, and how can I forget, Devastator ballz. I guarantee Hasbro won't have the nerve give his SS toy those. :twisted:

Eh, physics. Plus I think hunching over like a gorilla makes him look more brutish, badass and unique.
Plus he's supposed to be 100ft tall if he could stand up, so hunching over and being 45ft tall instead helps get him in shot better with other characters while retaining all that chunk and mass. I always found G1 Devs rather goofy looking anyways (and for something supposed to be such a threat he seemed to always have the dumbest look on his face) and prefer the more beast-like RotF Devs.

As for the wrecking balls, I'm not generally one for crude humour but they had to store somewhere so that's as good a place as any I suppose (rather than adding a bit more weight to the already heavy top). They're just metal balls anyways, he's not a naked organic creature with actual testicles so it really didn't bother me.
