    Been reading about Devastator on TFWiki, when I came across this part of the notes that caught my attention:


    "In Transformers Generations 2009, volume 3, a very early Devastator mock-up is pictured that places more emphasis on height than width (being rather creepily lanky) and includes among other things, a Sikorsky helicopter as a component. It was customized from various figures from other lines, including some from Spawn and Kamen Rider."

    Out of interest, does anyone have a picture of this mockup? If so, please post it, or maybe give a description of it, because it's interested me a lot.

    Yeah, it's that one. There's an illustration to the left that's been cropped that shows the helicopter flying into place as an arm.

    This does not look right. I mean, it doesn't even have any construction vehicle parts!

    Look at the feet. Truck parts.

    Shoulders. Shovel arm and plow.

    The rest of him is just a mock up to get an idea and basis for a design. They'd probably add more vehicle parts in as they go.

    Where (as in website) are these scans from, anyways? I got this one from another post here (I think it had something to do with PCCs), so I have no idea.

    Also, what's the story behind these images? Are they from the movie crew? HasTak? How do these things play into RotF's Devastator?

    Movie Bruticus?
    It could be possible that they planned on
    making Bruticus and had a name mash-up
    (Brawl-Devastator) because a helicopter
    combining with a construction vehicle
    themed group doesn't seem to make
    sense. Also the shovel on the combiner's
    arm looks more like a prehensile rifle than
    a excavator shovel to me. Just sharing
    my opinion. (and also, the horns on the
    combiner guy are wicked!)

    It's probably just from very, VERY early stages, when they had only just decided that they wanted a combiner. They didn't yet know what exactly they wanted so they did a lot of mock ups like that one to get a feel for the right direction. They may not even have decided on Devastator yet. That's my guess at least.

    I must admit that it looks quite good, but it's got a bit of Megazord in it. The Devastator in ROTF was an animal, a monster created from combining, which seems to suit it better.
