    Honestly you can't go wrong with any of those.

    Superion is one of my favorites. But I think the Technobots are what I would get first.

    I'm also leaning towards Technobots. They're a lot easier to find undamaged than the other two.

    Third for the Technobots. Computron is a great solid combiner.

    I'd say Technobots or Protectobots.... definitely two of my favorite combiner teams.

    Superion, I dunno.... he's nice and big, and the gold chrome is cool, but he's kinda gangly and fragile-feeling. The other two feel more solid to me.

    I'll echo WhiteMocha's post...I really do like Superion but diue to the longer, skinny legs it's never felt as solid as any of the other Combiner teams. Computron is a great combiner and Scattorshot is awesome on it's own! I vote Technobots.

    Yeah, Superion is Terrible. I brought and sold it within a week...

    Plus, my superion only sold for 80 bucks on ebay complete! You should be able to pick it up cheap.

    HOWEVER, i'd buy Defensor first! Great figure!

    aerialbots: superior looks terrilble, silverbolt is pretty bad, the limbs are all the same

    protectobots: defensor is okay, hot spot is okay, the limbs are pretty good and unique

    technobots: computron looks good, scattershot is great, and the individual limbs are pretty good and unique.

    definitely this, and if you have the cash, raiden, he is an awesome combiner. superion also has a bad habit of leaning forward at the waist, and his legs are way too long

    Grab The Technobots.
    I had him a long time ago and even if Strafe has a transformation so simple a Gobot would seem all Rubik's Cube-ish, the set is still pretty damn nice.

    Also showing some love for the Technobots. They always felt right. I still have my original and he still feels freshly pressed.

    And Scattershot is badass.

    superion looks like a robot with really long stilt like legs. to me it is the WORST of all the g1 combiners because of those legs; AND the fact that every single limb has the exact same transformation. at least with menasor, there was only 2 with the exact same transformation.

    Technobots and the Protectobots. are at least 100 times BETTER then superion.

    for both the technobots and the protectobots, every figure is completely different. EVEN if they have slightly similar transformations. at least they tried. First aid looks completely different from Blades in robot mode, and vehicle mode. while Fireflight looks exactly the same as any of the other limbs in robot mode. sure they look different in jet mode, but they are still the same ROBOT over and over again.

    with the protectobots you have a helicoptor, a motorcycle, a ambilance, a police car, and finally a fire truck. with the technobots you have 1 space jet thing, 1 jet, you have 1 drill tank thing, 1 car, and a motorcycle.

    but with superion; you have 4 jet fighters, and 1 passenger jet *i guess?* lol

    to me superion is ugly; boring; and the same toy over and over again.

    when i was a kid i wanted it; but never got it; a few years ago i bought it for $80. while i am glad i own it. i do NOT believe it's worth 80 dollars.

    but the one i always liked most was the technobots, my favorite of the autobot combiners; because of just the way they all differ from each other. especially with afterburner.

    I hope we get modern day Technobots and Protectobots when Classics/Universe returns.
