[NOTE: The photo that appears at the top of the post is NOT an actual pic of Devastator from Transformers 2. It is a fan-made mock up of what the big guy might ultimately look like.]
So I’ve been informed that there’s not a lot of love around these parts for Michael Bay’s robot extravaganza, Transformers. Now I’ll be the first to admit that Transformers was not without flaws, but come on—seeing your favorite ‘robots in disguise’ transforming in full CGI wonder didn’t send just a little tingle down your back and cause you to gush with 80’s nostalgia?
Ah well, you probably won’t care to hear that the famed ‘Constructicons’ will be a big feature of Transformers 2, and that yes, they will be combing to form fan-favorite colossus, Devastator.
(If you are psyched to hear that news, however, there’s some pretty cool concept art you can check out.)
Thank Comic Book Movie for the art, and for doing rumor control on the following facts surrounding the Constructicons/Devastator portion of Transformers 2:
– 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 Long Haul concept art (below) by Josh Nizzi is legit.
Honestly, look me in the eye and tell me that concept art isn’t badass. You know it is.
However, if I must gripe about one thing, it’s that Devastator is going to made up of multi-colored robots??? That’s blaspheme if you’re any REAL Transformers fan. I mean, Constructicons roll as a team, that’s what they do: they’re a team of construction vehicles. (Last time I checked, Mr. Bay, those still came in uniform color.)
That one gripe aside, I predict I will be wearing moist pants after the Transformers 2 trailer if those seven robots jump up and turn into Devastator. And unless Michael Bay TOTALLY screws this up, I’m betting some of you naysayers out there will, too.
