    Having watched the movie quite a few times now, I think the notion that the rail gun killed him is a little off: it popped his arm off, but I think he would've otherwise been fine if not for his own massive, ridiculously heavy body taking a tumble down the pyramid. I mean, technically the rail gun did kill him, but in the same way a bar of soap kills an elderly person who falls and breaks their neck in the shower.

    Hmmm... You're kinda right. I just watched it. The shot grazed along his back/shoulder and pretty much blew his right shoulder apart. It's hard to say though how much damage it did to his upper torso...perhaps making it swish-cheese-like until the tumble makes him fall to pieces.

    Heavy balls are not a good for climbing pyramids.

    Now, if we lived on the moon or underwater, Devastator would have probably been able to walk on two legs AND jump. So we'd be really, really screwed if either of those were scenarios.

    Now that you mention it, you could still hear him roar until the head hit the ground.

    And considering that some robots can survive without a arm...

    We don't know for sure Devastator was *dead* anyways. Brawl was put down in the first movie and got back up after an extended period of time. He may have been wounded, he may have been knocked offline, he may have simply fell into his component parts and needed to regroup and simply he had done his job and was no longer needed in the plot.

    Knocked out, Dead, Wounded, Injured, it is all the same in action scenes... he is simply 'out of the way' of the story.

    And railguns are serious business. It is worth a google for technology/military buffs.

    All I know is that Dev's better make a return, since we never got to know the Constructicons! Maybe next time Bonecrusher can join the team!

    I'd say Devs is dead, since he got his head blown off, and I think his optics fizzled out as well, but that doesn't mean he still can't come back. Good observation, though, I never thought about it before.

    I would agree, he looked pretty dead. But then again, death never seems to be the end in Transformers.

    not to hijack this topic, but im looking at this site here:

    Transformers Toys News and Reviews G1 to Movie - TFormers.com

    and werent all these characters fighting the human/autobots at the time devastator became devastator? so they are just doing this for toys, not as an explanation for who the individual parts were? im totally confused.

    That makes a lot more sense than it being JUST the railgun that killed him.

    I'm guessing it struck very close to his spark and all the damage made him have a "Spark" attack, or go into shock. Kind of like if you lose alot of blood you go into a coma or something along that line.

    Oh phew.

    Here was me thinking that Devastator being killed in one shot by a magic wand was anticlimactic.

    I can rest easy in the knowledge that he died because he fell over.
