This article is about the combiner in Revenge of the Fallen, for the character called "Devastator" in the first film, see Brawl (Movie). For other meanings of the name, see Devastator (disambiguation).
Devastator is a Decepticon Constructicon from the live-action movie continuity family.
He doesn't have much of a brain as his head is basically an empty turbine.

Devastator is a giant Decepticon gestalt warrior formed by seven Constructicons.

His components are:

Hungarian name: Pusztító ("Destroyer")

Revenge of the Fallen film

Voice Actor: Frank Welker (English), Yasuyoshi Hara (Japanese)
Not Hun-Gurrr, we swear.

In the Egyptian desert, the Constructicons combine into a giant robot from their alt-modes into Devastator. Devastator starts up his turbines and sucks up sand and Mudflap, who grips onto the edge of his mouth. He battles Leo, Simmons, Skids and Mudflap and is mostly victorious. He sucks up Mudflap, but Mudflap escapes, blowing up one of his optics. He nearly sucks up Simmons, but Leo saves him. Then he fights with the twins, in their very single moment of being awesome. However, after Mudflap accidentaly shots Skids in the face, he makes his way to one of the pyramids and uses his turbines to suck the top off, revealing the Sun Harvester. Finally, Devastator is destroyed by a rail gun fired from a nearby destroyer on Simmons' orders.

Revenge of the Fallen game

Not Abominus, either.
Autobot Campaign

Devastator attacks Cairo. Bumblebee is sent to destroy him, but has to not only destroy his henchmen but he also has to deal with an endless supply of Long Haul drones. Eventually he is defeated though.


Toys

  • Constructicon Devastator (Supreme, 2009)
Wonder if there'll be a "kumbyner not munky" complaint.
Devastator's Supreme Toy is a giftset that contains the six construction vehicles that make up his body. Unfortunately, the separate parts only have a body part mode and vehicle mode, no robot mode due to how hard it would be to engineer it and still be movie-accurate. If you want the Constructicons that have robot modes, you'll have to buy them separately. Clever. The feet, comprised of Long Haul and Rampage, are rediculously small compared to the rest of the body, giving Devastator the look of a gorilla.
Interestingly, Supreme class Devastator does not include Overload. This was mostly because adding another vehicle would drive up Devastator's already high price tag.
  • Constructicon Devastator (Mega Power Bots, 2009)
HAVE YOU GUYS BEEN ON THE OIL AGAIN?! I'M MORE JUMBLED THAN BLITZWING!
This Devastator toy is a 34.99 USD mockery of Devastator. He has an altmode, which is made just by turning him onto his stomach. It is incredibly movie-inaccurate, seriously, the vortex grinder was moved to his CHEST.
  • Transformers RPM: Devastator Showdown (Playset, 2009)
  • Constructicon Devastator (Legends, 2009)
The scale is worse than Beast Machines! No. That's just too far!
These are smallest version of Constructicons, with limited articulation and simplified transformation. Since they don't have to be as accurate to the film as bigger toys, they have vehicle modes, robot modes and can combine into Devastator.
The Transformers included are Overload, Scrapper, Scavenger, Mixmaster, Long Haul, Rampage and Hightower.

Merchandise

  • Devastator (Robot Heroes, 2009)

This version of Devastator is a bit bigger than typical Robot Heroes figure (standing five inches, including raised hand), but has the same articulation. Surprisingly, his left leg is coloured reddish-orange, in contrast to Supreme Devastator's yellow leg.

Or you could pick... WHAT'S IN THE BOX.

This item is currently scheduled for release, but is not yet available.

Trivia

The early concept art of Devastator. Apparently, he was a large hole on wheels.
  • According to his box bio, Devastator is named after terrible wind from Cybertron's equator, which can never occur on Earth.
  • The name "Devastator" was mistakenly given to Brawl in the first film. Michael Bay reported that he liked this name better, as it sounded more dangerous than Brawl.
  • The humanoid modes of three of the vehicles that make up Devastator are not seen in the film, just like the Supreme version of the toy.
  • For a long time, many people thought that Demolishor was, in fact, a part of Devastator. This was later proved wrong, as some information from novelization leaked to the web. In fact, there are two Decepticons with the Terex alt-mode: Demolishor (mostly white, but his first toy had mostly red on it though) was killed by Autobots, while Scavenger (mostly red) forms Devastator's torso.
  • It is interesting that this may be the first Transformer to have weight problems. Devastator is, in fact, so heavy he can't move on two legs, but is forced to crawl on all fours. So far no one had such a problems, as we could see in the film The Transformers: The Movie, when Unicron was standing on top of Cybertron, instead of sinking into the surface.
    • If the Constructicons weigh as much as their vehicle modes would, Devastator would weigh approximately 1650 tones, excluding the "hand loader" (see below).
  • His suction vortex somewhat resembles the Nemesis' tractor beam, used by Megatron against the Ark in the Beast Wars episode Nemesis Part 2. It has similar gears and blades inside, along with light behind them, though Devastator's are orange, while Nemesis' are green. However, in early CGI concepts (top of the page) Devastator was shown with green light in his mouth, so everything fits.
  • Shawn Kelly, the lead animator, stated that Devastator caused a computer to overheat and its insides to melt.[1] Awesome.
  • It is uncertain if Devastator was actually killed. He was shot by a railgun, but being composed of several robots, he might have survived, although some Constructicons might have been killed (Scavenger and Overload seem obvious), yet they can be replaced by other ones. However, the novelization depicts him as dead and blown into pieces by the blast with Leo, even using one as a sled to reunite with the others and Simmons nearly getting hit by some after Devastator is destroyed. Although we know that novels and movies doesn't like each other and may bear some differences.
  • It seems that there are two front-loaders that combine to form Devastator. Scrapper forms Devastator's right arm, while another unnamed loader forms the left wrist and hand (combining with Hightower). The "hand loader" can be seen transforming to the left of Long Haul, then attaching to Hightower. This would mean that Devastator has eight combining robots, instead of seven (or six if going by the Supreme class). Also worth noting is that either Scrapper is significantly larger than the "hand loader", or the unnamed front-load shovel is very small (the size of Ironhide or slightly bigger). There also seems to be a dump truck that helps rampage form the left leg.
Balls of Steel!
  • The Constructicons individual intellects are lost upon combining which could explain why Devastator's Intellect Tech Spec is a 2 while all his components are higher. This leaves Devastator seeming more like an animal than a cognizant soldier. For example, he is drawn to the top of the pyramid when Megatron calls his name, not unlike calling a dog.
  • Devastator is alarmingly endowed.
  • Devastator's only weapons appear to be grappling hooks, which he used to climb the pyramid, and the vortex generator in his mouth. But considering this massive grinder can't even destroy Mudflap, who's comparatively small for a Transformer, this makes Devastator surprisingly ill-equipped. Thus, combined with the fact that he's too heavy to make decent use of his brawn, leaves one with the impression that he's rather useless in battle. He is however, more heavily armed in the video game adaptation of the film, wielding several missile launchers placed over his torso, and something resembling machine guns in a similar location to Prime's grappling hooks, so maybe he does have some weapons, but just didn't use them on-screen. And seeing as there wasn't much of a resistance to the 'Cons, there might not have been any need for it. Also, at one point near the beginning of the fight with him, someone fired a couple of missiles in front of him at the group he was fighting. It wasn't shown who did it, but its possible it may have been him.
