    I like the added pieces and say leave em' on. I think it makes him more identifiable as Devastator. I also think adding more pieces would look too cluttered. :thumb

    I think he looks great without the add-ons. Looks enough like Devastator just by color.

    I don't think they're really that necessary and they actually look a bit awkward and out-of-place.

    I think he looks great either way. My only suggestion would be to paint the construction pieces the same colors as the body if you leave them on, as they stick out a bit due to some color differences.

    I'd take them off, the homage looks forced with them added IMO. Otherwise it looks great.

    Hey, I voted to leave them on, but that's not exactly what I ment. You may want to consider reconfiguring them so that they become hand-held weapons somehow.

    mabey a hand held hook would be good but that shovel looks compeltely out of place. I wouldn't add anything that couldn't be used in alt mode or hidden away.
