    Devastator (Michael Bay pentalogy)

    This isn't the Devastator we were all used to! This is a Gorilla-like abomination that we must fire the rail guns on!

    Devastator is a giant decepticon who is made up of seven, eight, or sometimes nine Constructicons (Eight are named; Scavenger (Torso), Overload (Pelvis), Mixmaster (Head), Rampage (Left leg), Long Haul (Right leg), Hightower (Left arm), Scrapmetal (Left hand), and Scrapper (Right arm)).

    Devastator is named after Cybertron's unwithstandable and terrifyingly destructive Devastator Winds, due to his intimidating strength. Devastator can also create powerful gravity wells by generating an artificial black hole with his Vortex Grinder, located in his mouth. Nearby objects are drawn into his gaping mouth to be crushed.

    Bad Qualities

    1. First off, this version of Devastator is for some reason a gorilla, complete with arms larger than legs, as opposed to simply being a robot created from other robots.
    2. This version of Devastator doesn't stay faithful to the original green giant that a lot of people loved back in Generation 1.
    3. Like many of the Decepticons in the Michael Bay Pentalogy, he doesn't have any personality.
    4. This version of Devastator also can be best described as a "vacuum cleaner on steroids" due to generating (ridiculous) artificial black holes with his Vortex Grinder.
    5. He somehow failed to even tear Mudflap to shreds when he literally sucked him in yet he pathetically gets half of his face ripped off while being shot at.
    6. Devastator also has wrecking balls on his crotch, resembling a scrotum.
      • It would be a little better if the wrecking balls were placed on his hips or heck, his ankle, as a weapon or the designers could've left them off.
        • Even worse is that his wrecking balls were indeed called a scrotum, possibly meaning that they only did this for an innapropriate joke and nothing else.
    7. His design, while alright, looks nothing like his G1 counterpart.
    8. He only gets a few minutes of screen time, before he gets taken out by a rail gun.
    9. His death by the rail gun was quite anticlimatic

    Good Qualities

    1. His transformation scene is one of the best transformation scenes in the Michael Bay Pentalogy. It even wowed producer Steven Spielberg.
      • In fact, He was so complicated to animate, that most of the computers couldn't keep up, and only one was barely able to animate.
    2. Some of his earlier concept artworks showed him standing upright similar to his original incarnation. This is still present in most of his toys.
    3. An original draft from Revenge of the Fallen were he is supposed to be the climatic antagonist after Jetwing Optimus Prime defeats The Fallen & Megatron would have featured making him spiritually faithful to the Generation 1 version but due to many storylines being cut & focusing of the humans & the twins, this completely ruined him.
    4. He is a much more threatening boss character in the video game adaptations, which is heavily based on R.Q. No. 3 above.
      • Speaking of video game adaptations, although Mixmaster somehow survived Devastator's destruction, he made a great appearance in the video game adaptation of Transformers: Dark of The Moon and a great boss for Ironhide to put up a well fair fight.
    5. As Mentioned in WHS#6, his design is alright.
    6. Depending on your view, his vortex grinder ability is pretty cool.
    7. His Studio Series toy is excellent.
    8. The "Wrecking Balls" scene is admittingly quite funny.


    • The extra two constructicons that made him up on certain occasions were a yellow dump truck (left leg) and a secondary bulldozer that made up (left hand).
