Explanation of the conversion: I decided to give Devastator access to the various weapons of his components, even if he rarely makes use of them. I raised his rank to 7, to reflect the highest rank of his component robots. Although this write-up is supposed to represent Devastator in his Generation One form, it also works for his Cybertonian and Generation Two forms.

History: (Dreamwave comics): The Constructions, Scrapper, Scavenger, Bonecrusher, Hook, Long Haul and Mixmaster, were successful in designing the first combiner, when they designed a united form for themselves called Devastator.

When Decepticon leader Megatron and Autobot leader Optimus Prime disappeared in an accident with a space bridge, the Autobot and Decepticon forces splintered into smaller factions. The Constructicons joined up with the Ultracons under the leadership of Ratbat.

Awesome and terrifying, Devastator is the bizarre result of the six Constructicons, joining together to form a single giant robot. He is ungainly and plodding, but he is also brutality in its purest form - a mechanical being whose sole purpose is to crush and destroy all that stands in its path. Devastator's mind is truly unique and his own, a melding together of his six components, but it also represents a compromise: his thoughts are limited to what the six can agree upon. The carrying out of any complex thoughts is severely impeded by their competing minds. Thus, Devastator is seemingly a creature of almost pure instinct - usually he acts before he can fully contemplate the consequences of his actions. These actions are usually simple, direct and extremely violent.

''It will take more than your puny arm to stop Devastator!'' - Devastator
''Right. Which is why it's lucky that the hand at the end of that arm is holding a gun!'' - Optimus Prime

Devastator Disection Note: In the television series it was revealed that all the Constructicons were once good, but then Megatron rewrote their personalities with his Robo-Smasher weapon, turning them evil.

Trivia: The Constructicons were reissued as and Action Master and then as Generation 2 Transformers in yellow and orange colors. There have been other color variants of them made by other companies as well.

''Prepare for extermination.'' - Devastator

Devastator combining on the U.S. television series. Powers: Devastator it incredibly strong and tough and has the ability to fly at speeds of up to 90 mph. He has many of the abilities of his component parts, but is somewhat limited in their use by his limited mental functions and awkward form. He is over 60 feet tall and has incredible strength - he can knock down a bridge with one punch. His main weapon is Mixmaster's solar energy rifle shoots a 10,000 degree centigrade heat beam a distance of six miles. He can also access Mixmaster's acid cannon. Bonecrusher forms his left arm, and allows him access to his bomb launcher. Long Haul forms his lower torso, and allows him access to his missile launcher. Scrapper forms the right leg which allows him to kick with Scrapper's blade.

Weaknesses: Devastator is slow and awkward; and is relatively easy to trip up. The inability of his six component parts to better cooperate inhibits his mental functions, allowing him to be easily outfoxed by most opponents.
