Wheel Loader & Mixer
Wheel Loader & Mixer are third-party Transformers and homages to the Constructicons Scrapper and Mixmaster. They combine with the other toys from their line to form Giant, an homage to Devastator.
Wheel Loader is not the only third-party Transformer homage to Scrapper. There is also TFC Toys Structor.
Mixer is not the only third-party Transformer homage to Mixmaster. There is also TFC Toys Madblender.
Maketoys first teased a Devastator homage toy on their web site in June 2011.
In July 2011 Maketoys posted the first prototype pictures of the Giant members.
In October 2011 Maketoys displayed a prototype of Giant at the Cherry Bomb Toy Show.
Promotional photos of the Giant prototype included a comparison with FansProject Colossus.
