Devastator’s Customizable Naughty Bits Are Up For Sale
There is a subject that I’ve been able to avoid during my days at Comics Alliance thus far, but I’m afraid that the time has come to break my silence. The topic in question, of course, is none other than Devastator – the Decepticon warrior created by the formation of the Constructicons – and his enormous robot testicles.
The reason I bring it up is because toy collectors can now lend some authenticity to their “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” Legend class Devastator action figure by purchasing custom made robot genitalia – or, less crudely, a set of “attachable Truss Crane wrecking balls, [which] combine to form [the] robots ‘scrotum.’” The custom is sold for $17.95 USD if purchased before February 2nd and $20.95 if purchased before February 23rd.
Frankly, I don’t really know what to say. “Thanks,” I guess, for the authenticity.
But I’m also sad to be reminded of the fact that Michael Bay had the balls to slap balls onto a Transformer. I suppose it’s not the most offensive aspect of the film, at least. And if we’re being honest with our toy collection, purchasing these customized “wrecking balls” is probably the morally correct thing to do.
