    I just re-watched this entire scene with detail, and there's no way devastator could have balls in the scene from later.
    And hightower has a hook instead of a ball, and it ends in the arm, not in the crotch.


    Wich shows how stupid were the jokes in this movie, to the point to change the character's design with fool purposes.


    Poor devastator, i actually think these constructicons have great and bizarre designs, but with not a good combiner mode.

    They are not wrecking balls, they are counter weights.

    Maybe they're aren't kibble, but an actual functioning part of cybertronian anatomy...

    Which means they must all have them! Although if they did, you'd be able to see Optimus', they must be huge!

    Devy was more than just the 6 Constructicons; I've read articles saying he was composed of up to a dozen vehicles. Some vehicles came from out of camera range, standard plot hole

    That was them struggling to explain the lack of continuity logic which saw some components of Devastator die earlier in the movie!

    It was a one off lowbrow gag because Bay was feeling like making a balls joke.

    If they can bring back Barricade for no reason and Megatron can keep cheating death, I see no reason why they can't bring back Devastator for the heck of it.

    Bring him back, give him a more solid overhaul like barricade, make him bipedal, have his combine transformation be quick like Infernicus, have him fight the Dinobots, and I'll be one happy tf fan.

    It was just so Turturro could say "I am directly below--" *looks up, sees balls* "--the enemy's scrotum!"

    And I thought it was one of the funniest scenes in the movie. I don't know how people don't laugh at that moment.

    That makes it worse. The joke isn't funny when you have to have a character explain it.

    Turturro is talking on the radio to the ship captain with the rail gun so the captain knows where to aim, because he's out of visual range. He's homing in on Turturro's radio signal, and Turturro is telling him how close he is to the target. Sure, it was stupid humor, but most humor is, and Turturro's wild-eyed manic delivery sells it.

    And yes, I realize the irony of me now trying to explain the joke.

    From anybody else it woulda stunk like a post-Bad Day at the Mongolian Buffet Bowl-Blaster, but from the crazier-than-a-shithouse-rat Simmons it did kinda fit. :)

    If you notice in later shots, the balls don't actually hang from his crotch, but from essentially where a "tail" would be. The things they hang from jut out from the back, causing the balls to dangle where they do.

    That's not really explaining the joke, though.

    How? Counter-weights exist on cranes.

    But he didn't. He got kinda messed up, but he walked away and they didn't.

    Really, since the Twins didn't show up conclusively in DOTM or even at the end of ROTF, for all we know he killed them.
