TFW2005 has received confirmation that the combiner Devastator will appear in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. The confirmation includes the following details:
– Seven construction vehicles merge to form Devastator
– Devastator has lots of upper body strength, like a gorilla
– Not just green, some of the vehicles are red and yellow
– The previously seen Long Haul concept art (image to left) by Josh Nizzi is legit

Whoooo, seven month old thread!
*Nods* But I'll still buy them all, including the Devastator Combiner Giftset
its going to cost a fortune to get all of them.
from the front page, looks like you are correct. The more time that passed, the more I was afraid you were right. Looks like you were. Now we just have to hope that they can pull it off both visually and thematically.
You could always have read the news post.
Yeah… 29 pages is too long to read all the way through.
What pic? Hasbro/Paramount do not own that pic of Long Haul as that was created prior to Mr. Nizzi joining the art team for the movie. This was covered numerous times throughout the thread.
If it actually were real, wouldn't Hasbro's legal department have requested the pics be removed?
okay… i put a little more time into it… here is SP-Prime: revision 2.
Yeah. That's sweet.
Makes sense. I was just curious. Personally, I think it'd be cool, but that's just me. Though, at the very least I'd like to see Prime combine with his trailer ala Powermaster Prime.
And, yeah, I want to see Devastator as well! Even if he's got a kind of simian appearance (actually, I think this is rather original).
Honestly, I don't like the idea of two individual bots combining. Especially if one is Optimus Prime. I'm fine with groups like Devastator, Predacons, Computron, Superion, etc. When multiple bots like that combine they form a new group consciousness (IMO).
Also, there are some things that I don't want to happen in a live action version of the show that I will allow in a cartoon version. Two bots merging isn't something I want to see. That having been said I really want to see Devastator.
So, you found all the combining from the last four shows creepy? (not trying to flame btw, just generally curious)
Personally, I'm fine with it, but considering that it's more of a staple of the Japanese written Transformers shows I'd have to wonder if they would even consider doing that… hmm… sounds like a good question for Mr. Orci… might just have to pop in there and ask if it's ever been discussed.
I would find it extremely creepy if another autobot merged with optimus prime. I'm fine with him using his trailer in some form but not another autobot.
Ok something like that would be really sweet to see in action.
here he is! Superpants prime!!!
okay so it would be WAY awesomer in the movie but Jetfire combining with Ops… hell it could be kinda neat. and it's been done before so not out of the question.
Also… in line with my idea that this combiner may end up being bruticus? well Starscream creates bruticus while on that deserted island in G1. maybe moviescream creates bruticus in liu of megatron's return and… well you get the idea.. it could solve the name issue… and bruticus is kind of a bad-ass name.
anyway that's it…
im thinking mor 2 voyagers, if they do a crane or something else big. like i said earlier, these toys essentially NEED to be in scale for the combining to work.
Hmm.. okay.. lots of thought into this.
One voyager, 6 deluxe = Devastator yumminess.
Placing bets as to the official name of this monstrosity. While i expect Devastator would be ultimate fan-service… i can see Constructicon or Bruticus or something like that…actually i can really see Bruticus if there are some "combaticons" involved…
Also like the idea of Super-Pants Optimus in the film for Big-Bot-Battle goodness. Combine with Jetfire perhaps? fly up to take on Devy?
Edit: Expect a digibash coming soon… i kinda really like the Ops-JF idea.
No. They were drones developed for the video game. They're not "real TF movie characters". No more than Swindle, Cliffjumper, Hardtop or Wingblade. They may be expanded movie-verse characters, but not "Movie" characters. They did not appear in the movie.
wow someone is using logic in this thread…
the cement mixer is mixmaster, the forklift is scrapper… oddly enough… they are both already real TF movie character… they will be part of devastator.
the combine form is probably not going to be called devestator.
bonecrusher probably wont be one of the parts, even if there is a bulldozer.
wingspan means nothing. All a pterosaur wings are is the pinkie finger elongated and a thin membrane.
A pteranodon's actual body (chest, legs, torso, etc) was barely larger than a large turkey. Most of the size is in the enormous skull (which was hollow and almost as large as the body).
Can we please get off this, tho… I don't want a mod yelling at me about getting too far off topic. I've been a dinosaur geek to the nth degree for 27 years. I'm done debating the merits of Pterosaurs in Michael Bay movies.
