Shanghai Attack Demolishor and Desert Combat Rampage

As far as figures from the movie toylines go, they usually tend to be either spot-on screen-accurate representations of the CGI character models, or only halfway there. Two figures in particular who only made it halfway in terms of screen-accuracy were Voyager Demolishor and Deluxe Rampage.

While their molds were, for the most part, accurately sculpted, their color schemes were highly contradictory of their movie versions. However, this problem has been resolved by TakaraTomy with their upcoming releases of Voyager Shangai Attack Demolishor and Deluxe Desert Combat Rampage...

Wait, Demolisher was white? How could we tell in the movie?

He wasn't this white. The lighting makes it appear that way but the light of the explosions reveals a lot of red, particularly in the shot when Demolishor swatted a helicopter. I will say that there was definitely more white than on the Hasbro version but nowhere near as much as this new Takara version.

Sorry guys, but this figure is most definintely accurate being in this white color. It was Scavenger who was red. Look at these pics of Demolishor and see the white:

Though, he does appear more dirty grayish white in this scene, but he likely wasn't as squeaky clean as this figure looks.

I still say it's the lighting. I know I saw a lot of red when he was briefly illuminated by an explosion (when he swatted a helicopter.) If I could find any stills of the shot I'd link to them because I'd like to know what others think about it.

Well, look at this. It's the excavator that was used for Demolishor in the Shanghai scene, in proper lighting all by itself. Sorry that it's small, but I couldn't find it any bigger.

Chaos Bringer. Demolishor was mostly white, particualrly in vehicle mode. His vehicle mode colors were almost literally the reverse of Scavenger's Scavenger was red with white trim, Demolishor was white with red trim. It wasn't lighting.

I finally found the scene. He is most definitely white. I haven't seen the movie since June so my memory was hazy and the red head stuck out in my mind. But are there not also red stripes on his body next to his head, stripes not seen on the toy? Pause at 4:52. Am I seeing things here?

So why did they change it in the first place? The toy is red and he appeared that way in all other media. Even ILM's design sheets show a red "Wheelbot."

Bad connections and/or misinformings between artists and filmmakers, I guess?
Chaos Bringer said,  - 2009-10-18 17:03:18
And to think it all could have been avoided if they had simply had one set of constructicons that have bot modes and form Devastator as it appears ILM intended when they designed them. Would it have been so hard to write the film so that only one set was needed? If it meant they couldn't kill off every new Decepticon that appears then the film would have hardly suffered for it.

There are TWO Wheelbots. One was Red, one was white. The red one is Scavenger, part of Devastator, the white one is Demolishor. Two different wheelbots. Basically, they decided to have two of each type of Constructicon. Two Wheelbots, two "Rampages", two "Long Hauls", two "Scrappers", two "Overloads", two "Mixmasters", two Hightowers. The Wheelbots, Scavenger and Demolishor were the largest of the Constructicon designs, and Bay apparently wanted A really big opponent for the opening scene, an opponent who had to be killed. Since they still needed that design as part of Devastator, they had two characters with that design. Another Constructicon was sacrificed to supply parts for Megatron's reserrection, thus, they needed a copy of him as well, Thus, two of each type.

And yet only one Overload and one of "Ze Little One" appeared in the film.

Not entirely true. "Ze Little One" was apparently a Scrapper, so there were indeed two of that model.
