    So what does everyone think that the animation is going to look like for the constructicons combining to become devastator. Do you think it is going to be really fast, and we wont notice any of the details, or do you think that it will be more dramatic, kinda like when Voltron combines (I hope not!), thoughts?

    I think it'll be done through a dance number.

    I think there will be a slow and ominous pace to the combination, similar to Unicron's transformation to robot mode in the '86 film.

    You'll get a wide shot of the Constructions grouping near each other

    cut to a reaction shot of the Autobots

    some tight shots of pieces from the different robots linking together

    A reaction shot of the humans.

    Pieces of a crane forms fingers that flex themselves, preparing for battle.

    One of the 'Cons laughs manaically.

    A Shadow is cast over the Autobot forces. Prime orders everyone to fall back.

    The camera stares up at the menacing and complete Devastator as his face finishes transforming. He roars and beats his chest.



    Something like that.

    Like the Transformation in the first movie, it'll just look normal. That's what I liked about them, even when they're supposed to be dramatic the robots are just transforming and standing up. (except Jazz dances)

    Im hoping it is done kind of slow this way we can see the transformation and each constructicon forming into Devastator. The G1 Devastator is my all time fav transformer and i cant wait to see him in action!!!

    Then you're going to have to wait a long time. Movie Devastator is quite different from G1 Devastator.

    Im very curious as to how this will be pulled off too. In the cartoon they sued to just kinda float into each other, obviously that wont work in the film. Either they will combine together whilst lined up in a formation on the ground, which will eventually form devastator and he'll stand up from off his chest or back.
    Or the robots that form the legs will start the process and the others climb up onto each other then combine together.

    Either way im looking forward to it as im sure it'll look mind boggling.

    I think the latter, which, IMO, has potential to look really kinda intimidating and awesome.

    I see a slow, Classic Bay 360 degree move. The legs tranform into place, the torso moving over them as the arms monkeyswuing up. The huge hands grab Mixmaster and place him right onto the shoulders, followed by a huge crushing step. The Vortex opens and shit hits the fan.
