    So I was visiting a palliative care centre, and there's a wall there where they hang pictures drawn by the children under their care, and one of the drawings was of Devastator.

    For some reason, I find the idea of that hideously coloured, steel balled monstrosity being loved by kids surprisingly poignant.

    Hang on a sec, lemme look up poignant:
    Adjective
    1. Keenly distressing to the feelings: poignant regret.
    2. Keen or strong in mental appeal: a subject of poignant interest.
    3. Affecting or moving the emotions: a poignant scene.

    Okay, I learned something new today. Onwards with my response:

    It is interesting. One of the kids probably liked the concept of construction vehicles (what kid doesn't like bulldozers and cranes and stuff? :) ) merging into a super big robot. They probably thought Devastator could function as transport, building crew, protector and vacuum cleaner all at once and was thus the best thing ever :lol

    Maybe kids love the color green.

    Kids might see Devestator & think the jolly green giant from the Vegetables commercials.

    Piccolo from DB,DBZ & DBGT is another favorite among kids.

    I can't speak for those kids, but I remember how happy me and my friends were way back when, when between the three of us, we got all 6 Constructicons and could put Devastator together. I still remember that day

    I think it may have to be the fact that kids seem to like vehicles- construction vehicles none the less...

    Devastator is the best.

    I guess kids love building stuff and there's an instant recognition.
