    None of the construction vehicles had the aforementioned balls. They formed when he became a giant robot.

    longarm or whatever that crane is called has two hooks that have wrecking "balls" on them. So those are Devastors balls.

    I lol'd... actually thought it was kinda funny. I don't think they set it up well enough to have full hilarious impact, but it was funny enough.

    Meh, they fit in perfectly with the potty humor of the film: Humping dogs, cock rocket kitchen bot, Leo's sucking the sack rant, Mom's continous use of the word 'shit', her Mary Jane high, Alice's tongue, Simmon's ass, Jetfire's gas, Wheelie's humping Megan Fox's leg...Devie's balls were just the icing on the cake.

    I thought it was stupid. But only because it wasn't over the top enough.

    Skids and Mudflap should have both swung on that crane and kicked him right in the nuts. It'd make a big 'clang!' and then they' show Devastator's face and his eyes would get big and he's be like :O and the he'd say 'owie' in a really high pitched voice and fall to his knees.

    Then Simmons could have been like 'OOOOHHH!!' and Tyrese would be like 'OH SNAP!' and Skids and Mudflap would be like 'Devastator has narrrds!'

    Uh, spending money does entitle me to enjoy the movie and not see my hobby used as a dumpster for every infantile joke Bay can think of. Hence why I won't spend more money on it, and I think a personal Michael Bay ban is appropriate.

    It ruined the whole scene.

    When I was sat at the edge of my seat wondering what was going happen all excited and then I saw 2 giant robo balls...ruined it.

    No. All of the Autobots had to combine into a giant foot and THEN kick Devastator in the nards to defeat him. Now THAT would've been a fucking finish.

    It could've been more degrading! he could've had a massive schalong and started humping the pyramid! that would've scarred a few minds!

    Your hobby? last I checked, Hasbro owns the Franchise and has the right and should change it and make it appeal to the most amount of people possible and not simply appeal to the fans of a particularly old, and off the shelves version of the franchise from 20 years ago who are an insignificant statistical part of the customerbase.

    Hasbro owes you nothing and you own 0% of the franchise. Your ticket entitles you to no more access to the franchise than someone who has never seen or heard of transformers before.

    As soon as you realize your control of anything Hasbro makes ends when you purchase an item and the transaction is done, maybe you can see your role in better perspective. Like and consume what you like, don't like and not consume things you don't.

    You know what's funny? A lot of you people are complaining that it "ruined Devastator and made him a joke". Stop focusing on the negative aspect of Devastator.

    The Devastator *I* saw was a total bad ass... I don't know what movie you were watching. It's not like Devastator was like "HeY YUU GuUuUyYyYyZZZzz!1!!11 chEK Out mah BAAALLLLZZZzzZ!!!11!1!1one!!11!", they were just there. If anything you should be attacking Simmons for referring to it as a "scrotum" :rolleyes:

    Are you being purposely obtuse? I never said anything about owning anything. My hobby is Transformers and I like to enjoy it thank you very much. When someone like Michael Bay decides to abuse my hobby, I'm going to take issue with it.

    He didn't abuse it. He made something you don't like because the franchise changes and appeals to whomever they wish.

    You can either consume it or not consume it. You don't have any right to expect or dictate how the franchise is made by the owners of it. Your ticket has no more right than anyone sitting in there regardless of how much you have invested into your 'hobby'.

    He made 2 blockbuster movies that are putting the TF franchise on the map and are generating a ton of new fans.

    I don't see the abuse.

    No.

    Showing both?


    Yes.



    Actually, I don't care. IMO, it's so insignificant in the grand sceme...

    Actually, I do, whether you like it or not. Saying I don't have that right doesn't make it so. You're just gonna have to live with that.

    Never said it did. You want to be the constant white knight? Fine, but don't accuse me of all this garbage you accuse others of. I never claimed to own the franchise, I never claimed to be owed anything, I never claimed my ticket was worth more than others. Understood?

    It wasn't necessary. But it was funny.

    Though not as funny as all the whining over it.
