    i don't know if this has been talked about already or not but i got to watch and really pay attention to ROTF yesterday. lots of going back to certain spots of the movie to make sure i saw everything and caught what i might have missed in the theater. well i noticed that when devastator first combines hightower is in bot mode before he connects to form the arm, a little different then the concept art we saw with treads for feet, he had legs like the doctor. maybe im crazy but im pretty sure that was his bot mode. can anyone else verify that? it also suggests that devastators body parts do have bot modes!

    That wasn't Hightower, that was a yellow bulldozer.

    Hightower was already attatched to Devastator at that point.

    Demolisher transforms, grabs hightower to form the upper arm, then together they slam down on the bulldozer to make the lower arm/hand.

    Also something to note, you see Overload and a yellow Volvo excavator in a few shots as well, but you don't actually see those two form any part of devastator.

    yeah i saw that was scrapper turned into a hand and attached to hightower. this confused me as to which robots make up devestator. so if scrapper is the left hand and hightower is the left arm then who is the right arm and right hand?

    Nope High Tower never transformed. He was just an arm, and then linked to that eighth Constructicon.

    Scrapper formed the right arm & hand, Hightower-the Left arm, Bulldozer-Left hand, scavenger-upper torso, overload Forms the rest of the body, Mixmaster-head, Rampage-Left leg, And long haul-Right leg. that should be correct :)

    This thread proves that, even as impressive visually as what we got was, they still boned it. Royally. If it had been done properly, we would have seen all of them transform first into their robot modes and then merge and we would have seen who formed what definitively.

    And while we're on the subject, which character actually had the wrecking balls? Y'know, prior to merging?

    He was there, he had all the mangling gears and stuff that formed the neck and throat area that hooked up to Mixmaster to form the rest of the head and face.

    What about the Volvo excavator in the one shot? where does he go :p 

    he was filmed, but then in the CGI, I think for some reason was scrapped and was replaced by a bulldozer instead.

    Sorta like how he's on the ship as well earlier in the movie, he's in one shot, but then the CGI shots from above, and diving into the sea, he's scrapper.

    well I would assume it would be Hightower, since he's a crane. Maybe he had several stored in his chassis somewhere, and why they ended up dangling from Devastators crotch, I don't know. Obviously somebody just wanted to put in giant robot balls.
