TFA DEVASTATOR 1 of 3 by Grinwise TFA DEVASTATOR 1 of 3 by Grinwise
After so many months of procrastination it's finally done! That one thing people have been asking me for ever since I drew a silly, silly Long Haul - DEVASTATOR!

Devastator is the Constructicon combiner that is formed when all seven Constructicons merge. Next to the official three (Dirt Boss, Mixmaster, Scrapper), it features:

Long Haul [link]
Bonecrusher [link]
Rampage (or Bonecrusher 2 :)) [link]
Hightower [link]


As you can see (and if you are nerdy enough) you might notice a Galactus vibe coming from the head..I've been toying with that idea since the beginning, since Dirt Boss is half Headmaster unit, which already kinda looked like it..I know there will be people out there that will not be too fond of the idea - to you, I apologize. I LIKE HIM THAT WAY WHOOH!

Next to that, I sort of tried to keep within the Animated style, so there are some (obvious) artistic liberties (like the crotch, which yes, is Long Haul's alt front). As well as some wtf mass shifting. And oh yeah, he's a bit simplified..not alot of extra stuff hanging on him like his G1 or other more detailed versions - hence his whole right arm being the Scrapper crane instead of just his shoulder, etc.

I don't think he will ever battle Omega Supreme though..even though Devastator is big, Omega is probably still much bigger..you know, being a space ship and all. Or maybe Swindle can sell them a mass shifting ray to grow even bigger? ;)

Oh yeah, I made some changes to Long Haul in the process. Changed the sides of his truck bed to purple, to allow them to form the right chest for Devastator. I also added some more lines on him since he looked a bit out of place with his lack of detail. Also added an extra rail on the front.

I might eventually add the proper transformation schemes to Long Haul and Bonecrusher to really complete this project, but to be honest: that, and more detail sheets (like Devastator's weapons, or what his backside looks like)..I really can't be bothered anymore for a while.
So pretty much all you need to know that I didn't draw:
-Bonecrusher's crane arm kinda forms his spine. Bonecrusher's back wheels form the shoulder plates.
-Like Omega supreme, various panels on the body can open up to reveal rocket launcher trays.
-The right arm claw (scrapper) can be shot like a grapple beam (Scrapper could already sort of use it like a fishing rod in alt mode anyway).

-When combined, it takes only a couple of seconds before Rampage becomes the dominant force inside. Just enough for Devastator to state his name, after which he will pretty much revert to a raging, destroying brute.
-Might lose a bit of nuts and bolts along the way.
-When on the brink of being destroyed, Dirt Boss will try to escape by ejecting himself from the body (like the Headmaster unit: seeing a head fly with rocket flames coming out of the bottom).

Also note this project is divided over 3 images - the main image, one that shows the different components, and a group shot (featuring all the Constructicons and their alt modes, which also features 2 alternative heads for Devastator)

I hope you like it! Don't be afraid to tell me what you think!

Devastator really looks awesome
I'd wish that they hadn't cancelled Animated, it would had been cool if Devastator appeared and i would had like also that there is a bunch of TFA episodes lol :D

Oh my gosh, this is awesome!

I love looking at animated art, but dang it, it hurts so much what with the show and toy line getting canceled and all that.

Every time I see a cool Animated design, I want to run out and buy the toy, and then I remember... -_-
