    In the scene where Simmons is underneah devastator's scrotum, you can see the legs attach to the hip by ball joints.

    here is a pic, i know its not the best but it's all i could find.
    OK HOLD ON! i know that devastator has balls, but i am talking about the ball jointed legs. For Instance look at where overload (the waist) attaches the longhaul ( the leg).... now do you guys get it.

    You can also see this in some other shots of devy too

    Well, I see the balls... :lol 

    I kid, I kid.

    Yeah I can see the sockets where the thighs actually attach to the pelvis. I wish they managed to put them on the actual Devastator toy though, but we got a giant brick-zord suck-a-tron instead.

    I don't understand how Starcream managed to re-attach his arm though. I mean Prime sliced it clean off with his blade. Huh.

    That's when we need Omega Supreme to kick Devestator in his junk to bring him down.

    Actually, if you watch it closely, Prime does not "slice" it off. He actually comes down with his fist/forearm onto Starscream's forearm and RIPS the arm through the bicep into the shoulder socket. It leaves a bunch of frayed ends.

    BUT, this STILL doesn't explain how a TF can reattached a dismembered limb. Was it a Quality Control issue where things can pop off??

    transfofrmers are based on nanotechnology,so maybe they have healing abbilities that normal robots or creatures dont have. You can see how the parts of starscreams arm connects to his shoulders

    If you remember from the first movie, when they are examining Scorpinoks tail, they mention that its a self regenerative metal. So There for its very possible that they can reconnect severed limbs. But this still doesn't explain Bumblebees voice issue.

    Sam makes mention that Bumblebee just likes to play it up.


    Also, Devastator's balls are actual wrecking balls attached to cranes folded onto his back. They just hang down in a very compromising way when he hunches over.
