    what if it were possible for any set of autobot/decepticon characters to naturally evolve the ability to become a fully realized full fledged combiner team?


    what if it was as simple a thing as each member of the team unite sharing a bond with each other through whatever matter it is they are most passionate about as a group?


    think about that for a moment

    the protectobots and the predacons and the seacons could easily be such example of a naturally occurring combiner team. in that each member of each of those teams is so dedicated in mind body and spirit to the very same thing which bonds them together as a unit in their way,


    their passion their spirit their positive emotions and state of mind all contributing to making it possible for each of them to go well above and beyond the inherent inbuilt structural limitations of their individual personal bodily schematics design work wise,

    making the impossible possible through passion team work willpower determination grit tenacity and fighting spirit in their spontaneously naturally evolving the ability to become parts of a single greater whole that is fully representative of each member of the team and all of them asa unit all at once

    for all intents and purposes the combiner teams being the true super robots among their fellow cybertronians

    In principle it sounds cool but there would be some truly freaky mechanical monstrosities. I love it. :)

    Isn't this pretty much what IDW and machinima have been implying?

    I found their approach to combiners very confusing.

    the airealbots becoming superion in idw could serve as such an example as well

    so is this thread to discuss what unites combiners or what combiners we would want to see formed from certain bots?

    both actually


    as super robots go zoids happen to be fully self sentient living mechanical beings , rather similer to transformers in that regard as sentient mechanical living beings go in science fiction, as such each zoid has a individual nature personality and animalistic nature all its own, while at the same time each zoid happens to be modeled after a type of animal and as such has the instincts and nature of whatever animal it was modeled after in its way , as such to pilot a zoid takes a great deal more then willpower and technological know how. it requires the pilot to form a bond with their zoid, one born of friendship as much as faith trust and respect, but at the same time as the zoid gains experience in surviving multiple battles throughout its life time it gains intelligence as well while also growing more powerful in its abilities while at the same time the bond between the zoid and its pilot deepens over time in that the zoid is literally feeding on its pilots positive emotions and positive state of mind and as the zoid pilots self confidence grows over time so too does the pilot and the zoids natural abilities grow stronger over time , self confidence will power fighting spirit a real determinator sort of mindset appear to be key in brigning out the best over all potential in the zoid itself as a fighting partner a zoid pilot has to lieterally guide their zoid with their spirit , their feelings their emotions, their passion as a fighter for all intents and purposes, the stronger the emotional bond between zoid and pilot the greater the zoids ability to perform at optimal levels al laroudn while at the same time it makes it possible for the zoid to go well above and beyond its inherently sturcutal design limitiations in this regaerd a zoid can be rather like a super robot in its way.


    so whats to say that the same cannot also be true for a appropriately selected group of cyberttronians who happen to properly gel together personal chemistry wise and have that natural band of brothers family mindset iin their way coupled with each member of the unit in their way being entirely dedicated and passionate about their line of work aas members of the team unit(the protectobots for example could be a very damn good example of what I be talking about

    but yeah any group of cybertronians autobot or decepticon or neutral/nonallied for that matter.


    all of those qualities are required for the group as a team unit for the members of the team to achieve that elvel of unity and oneness as a team but it also in part comes from their being a genuine need for the members of the team unit to trigger their ability to aquire that greater level of power that drives the team unit on a subconcisoue level

    simple translation, friends and family , the desire to lay down ones life for their loved ones should the need arise things pretty much everyone has in common as day to day life goes folks but yeah thats the general idea

    a possible short cut around all that would be for the members of the team unit to meld their sparks together and just let dumb chance determine the results of the combiner form but odds are the mind of the combiner itself would not be very well adjusted personality attitude wise (think stuniton combiner menasor from transformers combiner force, the guy has some serious multiple personality going on there )

    I'd be down for a Junkion Combiner. The mental image of a massive scrap metal monstricity rising from rusted mountains of Junk sounds pretty badass.

    What about Soundwave combining with his "cassettes"? Maybe it could be a smaller combiner, like a Deluxe-class Soundwave that combines with four Legends -scaled bots, like Ravage, Laserbeak, Rumble and Frenzy? And because of the scale change, each of the cassettes comes with a much smaller (like, SD-card sized) non-transforming version of itself that would fit in Soundwave's deck, that way he could still eject them and it would emulate their size-changing nature?

    I'm not sure about spontaneous combiners through "The power of Friendship/Love","Sense of Justice and Right", or as a "Final Hour Power Boost", though I am also rather pessimistic.
    What I do like is the idea of the members forming the combiner needing to have similar personality traits and goals if you want the result to actually function as intended. I've actually gotten something very similar to that written on the Random Transformers Ideas Document I've been working on. *Cough*
    I'm also with everyone else on wanting Junkion and Insecticon combiners.
