    Isn't it true that there are about 9 vehicles in devastator ?
    From what I've seen in the movie my theory is : 2 vehicles on each arm, 3 vehicles to form the body,head, & torso ,+ the two other vehicles to form the legs. I particularly remember seeing 2 vehicles on the left arm.
    The toys so far, just 1 vehicle to form the whole arm:

    I think that is why the supreme class figure is so disporportionate, the toys don't use all the vehicles.


    So what exactly are the vehicles in the cgi devastator ? and in what order ?

    I would appreciate pictues of the vehicles too.

    I want to take this as my next scratch build project. I've learnt a lot from my last go at such.
    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/245555-home-made-megatron-complete.html


    And lastly, the vehicles that form devastator don't have alternate modes right ?

    I've seen some back-forth on this but I want to be sure, before I begin.

    Devastator is either 6 or 7 bots, depending on the version. In the movie there were 7, in the toy there are 6.

    It was never made clear if the devastator vehicles have alt modes or not in the movie. In the Hasbro toy, they do not have alt modes. In the Takara smaller legends class Devastator they do have alt modes.

    I count 8 (maybe 9).
    Scavenger/Demolishor and Overload for the torso. Mixmaster for the head, one maybe two Longhauls for the left leg (currently there are 2 Dumptrucks in the movie, which merge also into Devi), Hightower and one Rampage for the right arm and Scrapper for the left arm.

    I just watched it and did a few freeze-frames. It looks like seven.

    I'm pretty sure it's just 7. But go with whatever you feel works best too!

    Depends on what you wanna go by. I personally think there's 9. A small bulldozer forms the left hand (Zee little vun that was killed after Scalpel gave the order) and attaches onto the end of Hightower in the movie. 2 Rampages for the left leg, as there's 4 sets of treads in all the concept art and such.

    But if there's two bulldozers in the left leg, wouldn't that make the total 10 ?
    and make the left leg bigger than the right leg ?

    I vote for 9. (I think the right leg and right arm are single vehicles, but the left leg is 2 Rampages, and the left arm is Scrapper and Hightower). If there's a tenth, it's another Scrapper for the right arm.

    Part of the "Long Haul issue" seems to be that for concept vs filming (or even live-action vs CG scenes) that the model of truck changed--but the robot didn't! If you go by the CG and art (and toys), he's a giant model 797 truck that is big enough to form the leg itself. If you go by the live-action truck, it's a much smaller model 773 that would need 2 to form a leg.

    There's at least 11.
    With the torso and limbs each containing 2 bots, and with 1 bot forming the head, that comes up to 11.

    we're on eleven now ? wow ...

    In that case, I might as well forget about even trying to give then individual bot modes.

    How about this, is the vehicle for long haul, and scrapper the same size ?

    Cuz, the cgi of the green leg, looks like one solid piece to me. The left leg does look like it is made of two scrappers, but the green leg looks like its from one truck.

    I will go with the 797 as the green leg. I think the 773 is the upper right arm.

    toatally wrong!

    scrapper altmode is much bigger than longhauls!

    the third green dump truck in the movie is the original car which was scanned by devi and longhaul!

    same for scrapper

    same for rampage

    No, because for the base number, there's 7; Scrapper, Hightower, Mixmaster, Scavenger, Overload, Rampage and Long Haul. Add the second Rampage for the left leg and that's 8. Add the smaller bulldozer that looks like Scrapper for the left hand and that's 9. The right arm is composed of only one Scrapper.

    Also, Rampage's alt mode is much smaller than Long Haul's original alt mode that was used in the concept art. It was originally a Cat 797 truck, which is much larger than the 773 they went withfor the final version. Although they went with a smaller truck, they still kept the robot mode the same size as was originally intended, and thus the limb stayed disproportionately large. Therefore, if you used only 1 Rampage for the left leg, it'd be too short.

    Also, to elaborate, the small bulldozer that forms the hand for the left arm and that plugs into Hightower is, well, smaller. It's got nearly the same design for bot mode as Scrapper (as seen in the Megatron ressurrection scene), just that it's a much smaller model of bulldozer.

    what for a thrid green dump truck? I only count two. (And one red. <.< )
    If you mean Longhaul, who is fighting in the desert, then yeah, there are about 3... but in devy there are maximal two.

    The right arm can't be only scrapper, its just a caterpillar. how big can one caterpillar be. Besides, I'd swear it looks like there's a yellow dump truck in it.

    Look back at the reference pic ... you notice what looks like the side of a dump truck on the right arm

    The hands are actually some sort of smaller front-end loader.

    in devs ar eonly ONE! learn reading man!

    one green -left leg - thats all!

    overload is an articulated dump truck, not a normal dump truck! and he is red

    second dumpruck - walking longhaul in the village

    third dumpruck: standing in the mine as vehicle - he is not a part of devastator, and he is not a tf! he is just what it is: a normal dump truck - the which was scanned by longhaul and devs
