    people i've been giving this one a bit of thought lately

    when it comes to the constructicons in general they are comparitively speaking a group of super intelligent construcion engineers of sorts who posess the ability to combine to become a singal amalgamated titan like super warrior whos intelligence is what maybe all of 6 if that even

    now when it comes to the whole intelligence and lack of said intelligence and the whole purple and green colorscheme is it just me or could one in a certain manner of speaking look at devastator as being a homage of sorts to the incredible hulk?

    hmm perhaps, but the only similarities are really the color scheme, with hulk's green skin, purple pants, and devastator's greenish hue and purple connector parts.

    I personally thought that as a concept, the constructicons were (conceptually) the ideal gestalt group. Collectively as a team, they're master engineers (trypticon, perhaps megatron) with unparalleled capability to build, create, and construct. The irony is that combined into a singular form, they form a robot whose sole purpose is to undue everything that is built, created, and constructed.

    banner is smart...but the hulk isn't really the direct antithesis of banner, whereas Devastator is the polar opposite of the Constructicons, as a team.

    devastator smash

    that scene from combiner fight between defensor and devastator from the war within the dark ages pretty much says it all if you ask me

    oh great now i got this fanfic idea stuck in my head about a transformers avengers sequal in which megatron experiments on the constructicons to create devastator while juicing the big guy up on hulk derived energon

    No.

    damn near every big decepticon is an idiot of varying degrees - especially the combiners. now, if the rest of the combiners (three of whom who have intelligence ratings ranging from 1 to 3, and the absolute smartest of the combiners is a 5, a tie between predaking and monstructor) were smart, then you'd kinda be on to something because he'd be an exception. but no. he's stupid because he's a combiner.

    and as stupid as Devastator is, he's still smarter than the Hulk was back then.

    I think you have too much time on your hands if your coming up with stuff like that.

    What is with the obsession of homages everytime something is vaguely similiar? I don't get it.

    Very easy. Human minds look for patterns. Some patterns are better than others.:wink:

    I doubt it's a direct homage, but it's a comparision I never thought of before. Kinda funny.

    Eh, I don't see it. Big + Green + Purple + Mean doesn't instantly equal Hulk homage. Now if they combined into Devastator whenever they got a big angry, and had no control over it, than I could see the connection, but as-is, there isn't enough similar between the two for it to make sense.

    I think it is a homage to Barney and Baby Bop. They are purple and green too and when combined form Barney Bop.
