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!

He was, and still is. He's also a Headmaster unit.

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... -_-

This is pretty awesome. It was a shame we never got to see Devastator in TFA but this is pretty much spot-on to what he would've looked liked, I think.

I hope so, but probably not. Derrick Wyatt already said his idea for Devastator didn't look like this at all (and I think Bulkhead was forced to become a component!)

Thanks for the comment, and cool Bucky avatar!

LOL! The Allspark Almanac 2 mentions a project called
"Devastator". And the Constructicons are doing it.

Nice work, BTW.

Think TakaraTomy will create toys for the Constructicons?

We already have toys for the Dinobots...

Grinwise Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2010
Don't think they will..it's very expensive and I don't think they would ever get the costs back now that Animated is no longer hot..
Maybe they will do some exclusive repaints of existing toys, or create legends-sized (or smaller/simpler) new toys.. other than that..probably not :(

What about new episodes?

I don't think so..maybe if Hasbro ever decides to do a sequel series in a couple of years, but I doubt it.

Well, if Japan could create an awesome opening with music from JAM Project's TRANSFORMERS EVO from scratch, I'm pretty sure they could create a season 4 of TFA by themselves...
Reply
:icongrinwise:
Grinwise Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2010
They could..but that would cost alot of money. Alot. I don't think they would do so..and knowing Japan, it would probably be very different from what the original crew wanted to do for a season4 anyway..:p

With TF3/TFPrime upcoming, I think Takara is going along for the ride with Hasbro...

Thanks! This is the intended design (G1 head was a secondary option). I'm more happy with this one myself. :)

Devastator having a claw for an entire arm reminds me of both G1 and RoTF Devastators - but this one, by far, is the BEST!! Love how you've incorporated Dirt Boss as the head - it was time he lived up to his Gurren Lagann heritage! :XD: :lol: :meow:

Nice, I only wish TFA actually ussed the combiner concept from the other series. I could Imagoin Dirtboss being an optional Headmaster component for qwhen they need stratigy instead of just brute force

Grinwise Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2010
Sounds like a cool idea..not sure if they'd want to do that for Devastator, but it would definitely be cool to see a combiner with different possibilities.
