    And dronies need not respond :p 

    Ok I don't ever recall seeing this in the cartoon and I am still slowly making my way through the original comics (I had read the first few issues and tail end of the g1 USA comics back when they were new but that was it) and I was wondering has there ever been an instance where limbs of the combiners interchanged with each other? Or some sort of mish mash between two combiners?

    Off the top of my head, the japanese Scramble City episode is the only time I remember it happening. I'm sure somebody can give you a more certain answer though

    I could only tolerate that one viewing but I thought it showed limbs interchanging on the same combiner not multiple combiners.

    I'm looking more for G1 U.S. examples though.

    oh, I misread your question. I guess that one G1 episode where one of the Stunticons mess up Superion by becoming one of his legs is the only time I've seen it happen.

    I am sure that was in Scramble City as well. They call it scramble power.

    I seem to recall something in the Japanese comic bon stuff about a period of peace between the Autobots and Decepticons where it showed Defensor and Bruticus trading parters as a show of good faith or something, but I can't track it down.

    It could be Im thinking of the TV Magazine story "The Decisive Battle of Scrambles" where the scramble city combiners and abominus all mix and match into new forms like Comperian and Abomenaticus and Scramble 7.

    It appears Scramble 7 also appears in the Masterforce Manga.

    There were printed in the Generations book, but were probably originally published elsewhere. I'd not put it past ninety to have the original!

    I've got the TV Magazine Special in Aernaroth's link amongst others :rolleyes:  (I'll scan that Dinobot book when I get back from BC and buy a scanner!!)

    They're from Visualworks, the art book that was out a few years ago.

    About the upper pic:

    There are a few more pics and better explanations of their origins in the other thread from page 4 onwards.

    Looking at those pictures sure crosses the eyes. Pretty interesting stuff. I love that question brought about one piece of a gestalt dying.

    Should IDW explore this avenue?

    Ninety, is the meg head with the vin diseal face intentional in your avatar? haha
