    I use Wotafa for just about every figure's transformation.

    For Devy, he shows the stock transformation.

    I’ve been tinkering around more with the constructions, and I still think Scavengers the best figure out of the team. Definitely in my personal top 5. Please tell me I’m not the only one.

    Scavenger’s awesome! Mixmaster is my personal favourite, but Scavenger is easily top 3 if not my second favourite.

    If I recall, the original Devastator design was going to have the grey like in the concept art. I think in one of the first teaser trailers where he crushes the car with his arm had his grey face. In the behind the scenes, the ILM designers were told by Bay that he wanted more details added to the model, which is why they ended up with a red face. I think it is more of a design thing rather than trying to make a theory behind it.

    Scavenger is up there, probably my second favourite Constructicon, after Mixmaster.

    This is how I rank all of them:
    1. Mixmaster
    2. Scavenger
    3. Scrapper
    4. Overload
    5. Rampage
    6. Scrapmetal
    7. Hightower
    8. Long Haul

    That happens for anything Bayverse. Over-analyze it and you'll always hit a wall early on that is either "Bay wanted it that way so they changed it" or "this concept was mostly dropped at the last minute so you're seeing the vestigial leftovers".

    Neat wonder if the backdrop is pyramids or bottom of the ocean.

    Huh. At first I was considering Skipjack because I thought he may look better as a leg with that shield piece from Scrapmetal attached.

    Bur seeing the pic? Nah. It's too far away to help. So sticking with Rampage.

    While I'm a fan of the option to go character-accurate or movie-accurate, I'll probably stick with Rampage as a limb. It'll really depend on how I feel once I've properly got Devastator set up. I'm definitely picking this guy up, though, if only because I have an insatiable hunger for SS Constructions.

    Looks like the black piece of his waist is still assembled backwards. Sadness.

    Isn't Skipjack both? Rampage was never part of Devastator in the movie and his colours did not match the part of Devastator that had the same alt mode as he did.

    It is, thinking about it. I'm used to the ROTF toys completely ignoring any difference between the two, and I forgot Rampage wasn't actually part of Devastator in the movie.

    Man hasbro is fucking lazy these days. That's the exact same figure, just with a different base plastic color. It looks like they didn't switch up the paint apps one bit, and the fucking torso joint piece is still misassembled.

    Glad for those who want the alt color or missed out on Rampage, but this doesn't appeal to me at all anymore.

    at least its consistent?

    All i know is that now I don't have to worry about my OCD getting triggered that one is different from the other. lol

    Yeah considering hes technically an entirely new character he could have gotten like a new head sculpt or something at the very least.
