    What's the third mode at the top of the instructions...it's obviously not Devastator's head...

    Damn! Beat me to it :) . Yeah, I think it's some form of artillery cannon mode.

    Whats up with the Constructicons having third modes? Neat idea though.

    Maybe Hasbro's trying to make up for their lack of combining with added play value.

    Or maybe they could have just made the third modes into, you know, the arms, legs and torso of Devstator?

    Yeah, it doesn't make any sense. They're supposed to be Robots that Transform into Vehicles and Gestalt limbs. It's pretty bad to not have that last gimmick. I know of people who wouldn't give a damn if there was no electronics, but no... Hasbro has to "double dip". *Shakes his head in shame*

    Mixmaster looks cool, definitely digging him more and more, but I agree with a lot of other posters. If they could engineer these third modes into the figures, they could've given us a combined Devastator.

    third mode no need to add combine port,and no need to load-bearing,load-bearing is very important to a combiner.I don't think deluxe Rampage can be left leg of Devastator and load-bearing at least 2 Voyager and 2 Deluxe over him.

    slap a kitbashed head on the back of the tank thing, put connector ports on demolishors third mode, and make limbs from the othe toys.

    that's because their design easy as bricks,can load bearing better than complicate Deluxe.that's why people call them bricks.
    so the size is not the key,but the structure

    Oh, I totally agree, I'm just saying it's possible they could have found a way to make the lower limbs more capable of supporting the upper body if they'd wanted to. I have a feeling the decision was made to do the separate figures before they even bothered trying it.

    It's actually to do with stability. If you look at the way the limbs of the combined toy are designed, they are fairly blocky, solid limbs. This is true with most combiners with perhaps the exception of the Energon Superion Maximus limbs and the helicopters from the Bruticus Maximus combiner (those were pretty unstable).

    It's obvious that the way the regular toys transformed (based on the way the movie characters were designed), they would not have been able to form solid-enough limbs to support the weight of the combiner, at least not without drastically affecting the design of either the individual's non-limb modes or the limb mode itself.

    Basically, it's a problem of movie magic design without real-world physics. Most non-Movie combiner toys designed by Hasbro/Takara themselves are designed with compromise in mind so that the combined mode is stable.

    There you go, somebody understands :) 

    I think it's presumptuous to assume that without evidence. For all we know, they did try to figure it out with Takara before coming to the conclusion that either it didn't work (was not stable) or the compromise required would have made one mode or the other unrecognisable compared to the on-screen design.

    Mixmaster got a reeeaaaal solid transformation, I like it, and it makes me glad that Hasbro didn't try to combine 'em.

    with these 3rd modes, doesn't that make these people triple-changers? If so, I thought they were going to be saved for the next movie.
