    I dunno why I haven't thought to ask about this before but...

    What's the deal with the change in name from movie to toy? is this another licensing issue like with hot rod figures?

    Just a screw up in post editing. He was called Devastator in the early writings but it got changed to Brawl. Guess they missed it.

    Michael Bay likes the name Devastator better, and as a result, he doesnt consider the subtitles to be "an error." However, Hasbro says it is an error. Plus, it says Brawl in the credits. It's rumored that the DVD will change it but that remains to be seen.

    Have you noticed the search function's back?

    Seriously, there was a thread with this exact title not too long ago.

    Bay said on his site that it's an error, and that it pissed him off.

    I actually thought it made a pretty good Devastator, it was about twice as large as the other bots and it took like three autobots and the military to bring him down.
