    Just something that occured to me earlier this morning.
    I was thinking about how cool I remember the constructicons being when I was younger, watching the original G1 series. It then occured to me that actually, I only remember them featuring in a handful of episodes. Off the top of my head I would guess five or siz?
    Furthermore, I don't recall devestator appearing all that often either, TFTM awesomeness excepted.

    So, can anybody tell me how many episodes the 'cons appeared in, and of those how many times they combined??

    In "The Master Builders" episode when the Autobots chase the Decepticons around the Solar tower, we got the BEST sense of just how huge Devastator was as they round the corner, so to speak.
    I don't think that sense of scale was ever done with any of the other combiners, or in any other episodes. But we all know of the many animation errors in the G1 eps, so maybe it was done, and I missed it. But that episode remains among my favorites.
