    ROTF ALLIANCE COMIC, Demolishor mixups, or..

    if this doesn't make it more confusing, I don't know what else will. I'm pretty sure that Demolishor forms Devs torso, but why would Alliance #4 have two distinct looking demolishors, in both bot-mode, & alt-mode? is the other Scavenger? Maybe it will be answered in the comic, but right now I'm skeptical. The new preview pages shows a very small construction vehicle compared w/ the RH-400. Can some one help clear this up?
    I provided two images for comparison, the Image to the right is the Demolishor that I am familiar w/, but the image on the right is unfamiliar to me.( oh yeah, I provided in image from the game, this proves Demolishor is big, so who is this bot in the comic?)
    -Can someone blow this up, thankx.
    :wtf:

    Demolisher does not form the torso. Scavenger does.

    And where do you see the second RH-400?

    Also, the smaller construction vehicle is just bad art. It should be Demolisher.

    If IDW made demolishor, then on each page preview, they should look the same, but they don't, not even the scaling ( which never has been an issue before.) can u blow up, it would help make my point.

    Huh?

    The reason they look different is because two different artists drew it. One didn't pay as close attention to the model and got it wrong. That is all.

    In the new trailer and clips...Demolisher's color is white with red stripes...So I think there is two different characters..Demolisher and Scavenger!

    i was afraid of that. Well, i want to still try & believe the artist just made a mistake. The scavenger/demolishor issue is messing w/ my knowledge of these constructicons.

    Could have been apathy. More likely, it was ignorance.

    The artist was probably given concept art or a rendering to go off of. They may not have seen the trailers or gotten any sense of scale from their reference. They certainly didn't get model sheets.

    It could have been misleading writing on top of that. The description for the panel could have read "...Prime stands over the corpse of Demolisher..." and the artist assumed that meant he was taller/as tall as Demolisher.

    This is always an issue with Comic adaptations of movies.
