    so hasbro has filed an application to trademark the combaticons
    could this mean they might bolster the new villians in rotf?
    in a way it makes sense, in g1 cartoon they were essentially starscream's (re)creation and soldiers before being reprogrammed to serve megatron, and considering bay's misuse of devastator's title in the first film, the combaticons forming bruticus seems almost plausible

    Don;t know if that's the plan... but I'm ALL for it. Especially sticking with Starscream releasing/commanding them at first!

    well if movie cannon says that the tank was Devestator, then that's fine if it means I can have ALL the Combaticons in one movie, although Blast Off would have to be changed into something else.....F35 Lightning II or perhaps an F/A-18 Super Hornet or something.

    Combaticons would be the worst combiner to have in the movie imo, their alt modes are so miss-matched and varied in size that the combined form would just be absurdly massive or unbelievably goofy looking.

    The name will probably be used for a Universe figure or something, probably a robot heros or legends set.

    1-Yes. I was thinking too that the use of Combaticons will be reserved for Universe or similar.

    2-Eh, if the original crew change alt. and robot modes ┬┐why cant the Combaticons into something coherent?

    they registered the name "the fallen" too, they are just registering names, probbaly either for the video game or some sort of toys, i doubt that they will be in the movie..i mean you would think that they would register the other names for the movie first like who ever the hell the trax and beat cars are going to be for instance

    No it could be done, you would have to change the method of combination, using Vortex and Blast Off who would change into the largest alt mods to make up the vast majority of Bruticus, the legs and most of the torso and I think the other three would be enough to make arms, upper torso and head.

    Of course you could have them not combine at all to save time and money, they'd still be awesome.

    Shit, If we can't get Devastator then I'll definitely settle for Bruticus. Hail Starscream!

    wont happen cuz they already used a helicopter and a tank in the first movie and I dont think Bay will do it again!!!! Also, I d rather see Constructicons or even Motormaster and Stunticons before Combatticons... And the combining robot Bruticus wouldnt look real cuz of there size differences... And also remember its ''based and inspired'' by G1 so dont expect all these robots from the cartoons to be in this sequel.... But who knows.. maybe for TF3...

    I think that Combaticons would be awesome to see in the movie, however I'd say this is more likely a Universe release (repainted Bruticus Maximus from Energon?). However, I would love to see a Robot Heroes Combaticons 5-pack!

    Hmm if it's Universe, we've already got Onslaught, so I'm intrigued as to how they'll pull it off. I still call Animated on this one.

    they could easily go along the lines of energon bruticus maximus, that worked ok in terms of scale
    and of course they'd have very different alt modes
    also, on kortex's comment, i agree, the alt modes in g1 were hideously out of scale, but that's what change is for
    you know another work for change?
    transformation
    see what i did there?
    not being cocky at all here
