    This has been bugging me for a couple of weeks now. How are the constructicons going to combine to form devy. Will the torso and arms etc jump up into the air like in the cartoon or will they all combine on the ground and then he gets up from a laying down position?

    I have a feeling it'll be something like that.
    Though if you go by some of the ideas that have been coming out the "Designs for constructicons" thread, we believe the cement truck(Mixmaster?) who forms the head, will transform into a robot with no legs that hovers around.
    So maybe after the body forms, he flys up and plops down as the head?

    Yeah, probably not...But it's a fun idea.

    i really have no clue i suppose they can run, jump, and transform in mid air as they land into position to form appendages and things

    Hope the way they connect looks awsome not just them magically changing shape and coming togeather like g1

    has to look realistic
    cant wait to see what mixmaster looks like and the few other constructicons look like in robot mode. i bet there massive but really slow and clumsy. untill they become devastator then its citys being destroyed.
    king kong but 100 times more powerfull anyone?

    I thought It'd be cool if the legs formed first then the rest climb up them to form their respected parts. Could look real creepy.

    Maybe they combine in a similar fashion to how Animated Megs rebuilt himself- a bunch of cables and wires entwining and connecting with the various parts.

    Ha ha, this was bugging the shit out of me too. I agree with you 100% that they'll most likely combine on the ground, then they'll do some uber sick gyrational movments that will enable him to rise into his robot form. I know ILM is going to blow us away with this transformation.

    It'd be cute to see one constructicon scrambling up a pile of combining devastator to add himself into the mix.

    I think it'll start with the Demolisher rolling along in motorcycle mode, and all in one big motion, he combines with the legs who are in front of him, picks up the crane and the front end loader with his bucket arms, making the entire body.

    then humorusly picks up his head with his arms and plops it on top :p

    I was just going to say that, only more along the lines of the cement mixer being off somewhere else, and they combine, and Devy bends down and picks Mixmaster up, sort of Headmaster style.

    ok, the legs form then the steam shovel has the arms and head riding in robot mode on him until he jumps on top of the legs then they form the arms and head.
    thats my guess.

    My guess, they build him on the ground, front of body down. That way, when he gets up, just uses his huge arms to push himself up.

    But I do like the legs forming, while the rest climb up idea.

    I think the Constructicons will start combining on the ground, in such a fashion that the layman viewer will wonder what the hell they're doing. Then, Devy will slowly and ominously get to his feet, before towering upright over the battlefield and throwing his head back with a menacing roar. And the layman viewer will be like :jawdropper:

    They have to cut costs on special effects somewhere, so the cheap out on the transformation. The steam hammer starts spinning, creating a Tazmanian Devil style whirlwind. As the other constructicons jump in to join the fray, a dust cloud forms where their merging is masked. Devestator stands up, where his shoulders, but head down are now above the dust cloud. He then steps out, craning his head up to fully reveal his new form.

    Knowing Bay, it will look real as possible. Something of this porportion would have to be done right or else it will be an epic fail. He knows that, how can the rest of the bots look so real and have one of the best decepticons in history look like crap. We the fandom wanted devs and now we're getting him. It will be bad ass :bay  you know it.
