[spoiler warning]

Peter over at /Film picked up on a very interesting revelation from a review of Transformers 2 by Empire. In it, the reviewer discusses the Constructicons and Devastator.

Read at your own risk:

“A notable moment occurs during the dementedly frenetic final act of Transformers 2. A robot-on-robot fracas is unfolding around Egypt’s Giza Necropolis, with Devastator, an especially massive mechanoid comprised of several construction vehicles, set on clawing its way to the peak of a pyramid. As it lumbers up the dusty colossus, a shot tilts up to its mid-section, revealing two wrecking balls dangling down. Yes, Michael Bay, the man who brought us cyber-micturition in this movie’s predecessor, has one-upped himself: Decepticon testicles.”

Devastator is a ballsy robot, now in more ways than one. On that note, it was a pretty ballsy decision for Michael Bay to actually include the Constructicons and Devastator but he actually managed to pull it off.

Speaking of Cybertronian Anatomy, here’s another little scene from the movie which pieces together some of what we saw in the trailer and TV spots – Pay attention to the weapons of the little robots and where they are placed:

So now we know why Sam screams for his pet car to bust out of the garage – I’d like to see what happens next.

What do you think about this info?

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is directed by Michael Bay, stars Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, Isabel Lucas, John Turturro and Tyrese Gibson. It opens this Wednesday, June 24, 2009.

  1. I saw this film last night at the cinema? so i dunno why its not out in your country yet but just to let you know without spoilers, ITS AWESOME!!!!!!!

  2. @Ollie
    let me get some spoilers

  3. That clip was pretty cool.

  4. haha ok clip was kinda cool ( I love the dad in this movie) but it reminded me of small soldiers… which ironically this dad played another dad in that movie. But I’m more concerned with the addition of that many new robots and the fact that devastator has “robot balls”. I’m all for the humor and stuff but this seems like a little much and wayyy to immature. What did Bays 15 year old son beg him to put that in as a joke? I hope this movie doesn’t suck balls.

  5. i was so tempted to read the spiolers but i didnt

  6. Is it just me, or is all the focus that’s being placed on the technical CGI aspects of the film a tacit acknowledgment that the story/characters will suck as bad or worse than the first?

  7. OKay, i’ll finally say it: This is a rental. Where’s the Michael Bay hate-wagon? I’m jumping on…

  8. Newsflash…there is a current argument going on as to what exactly constitutes an IMAX film. IMAX argues that it is a physical process, others disagree and argue the physical SIZE of the screen does it…either way there is a VERY good chance that your view of OPTIMUS PRIME does NOT equal someone else’s view of “him” so claiming that he is “life sized” on the IMAX screen is a disengenuous point at best.

  9. I cant wait

  10. @ Fenix,

    It definitely reminds me of Small Soldiers as well.

  11. @Rob Keyes
    So where was the weapon placement you were referring to? A little hard for me to make you on my 19″.

  12. The testicular appearance(if it is true) is perhaps one of the worst ideas in the history of cinema..it didn’t take balls for Bay to do that it just took a lack of brains. Why didn’t someone involved heavily in this production tell Bay to scratch the idea?..Maybe he thinks the character is a reflection of him and his testicular size or maybe he wants to be remembered as the guy who put giant “balls” on a ten story robot..Moron..

  13. Love that picture of Prime at the top..It shows Prime has “balls” without have to physically put them up on the screen…

  14. Small Soldiers? For some reason I was thinking more like Gremlins (or was it Gremlins 2?)

    The whole “cube turns machines into transformers” is silly. One of the worst plot points from this serires. I’ll still see this movie for the robot fighting tho.

  15. Maybe thats how they overcome devastator, shoot him in the balls?

  16. robo-testicles and phallic weapons? hope it is nothing like adding nipples to the Batsuit ;)
