In the past several weeks, we’ve been given some glimpses at what the live action adaptation of the Constructicons and their combined form, Devastator, will look like in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

The feedback from the fans on this new incarnation of the massive character has been mixed, to say the least, but one common topic raised is that of Devastator’s strange glowing face.

To see what I mean, check out this image of Devastator:


The first official image of Devastator

Notice that his head is a unique glowing shape, unlike any of the other characters we’ve seen for the movie so far (that and the fact he’s made up of 6-7 other Transformers units).

Well, now we have an explanation for why he looks the way he does and why is head is designed as so: His head is a vacuum cleaner! Or more accurately as the packaging puts it, it’s a “grinder vortex.”

To see what exactly that is, check out this concept art of the character and his toy figure that was recently leaked:

Head over to TF08 for a much larger version of the image along with images of a few other characters that will be featured in the Transformers sequel. You can see from the bottom-left corner, that his face opens up to devour multiple large vehicles.

Interestingly, this packaging claims that only six vehicles form together to create Devastator which goes against the seven Constructicons number we got from the character list released by Paramount last week which I used to put together Screen Rant’s Transformers 2 Character Guide.

What do you think of Devastator now?

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen opens June 24, 2009.
