    Going by overall looks who do you think is the best g1 combiner and why

    i think that piranacon because he uses a targetmaster system and each of the limbs also have a gun mode which i think is awsome and unique to the scramble city type combiners

    I think Computron is the best.

    I dig Defensor. Computron is also very cool. For the 'cons, Menasor, followed by Abominus.

    Going solely by looks as you said, I'd say Predaking.


    Going by Playability and other factors, I'd say Menasor.

    I gotta go with the original. Devastator as he is the same color, has 6 bots, and doesn't look like 4 blocks connected to a main larger block. It actually looks like he has legs, hips a chest and arms.

    Is it just my perception or are the boards going combiner crazy lately? It's like we all came down with combiner flu after encore Devy was announced. :) 

    Devastator wins my vote. It was, without a doubt, my single favorite toy as a kid. Untold puny Autobots felt the fury of the bucket brass knuckles, and no matter how many times an attack would cause Devy to fall apart those scrappers always managed to recombine and pwn all.

    Piranacon is tied for my favorite, but not because of being a Targetmaster. I just really like his weird fish-with-legs beast modes and his unifying CMYK colors. Abominus is my other favorite for similar reasons.

    Yeah, but all of the figures in Predaking had the same three colors, red, yellow, and black, plus he's the only G1 5-figure combiner where all the figures where nearly identical in size. I love devy, especially the Orange G2 version so don't think I'm knocking you're opinion

    Devastator for nostalgia, Predaking for sheer impressiveness (size, cohesiveness, individual modes).

    Going to have to say Devastator for both sentimental reasons (my first G1 combiner as a kid) and because I think his aesthetic is the best in terms of all Constructicons being the same size with colors matching and overall proportions.
    Abominus would be my second though and I'm really hoping he'll be one of the next to get the reissue treatment.

    Predaking. No doubt. A giant amongst giant figures.

    Combiners

    Hmm, tough one, all the combiners are pretty cool on some level. I love Devastator, I think he probably looks the coolest, and I like that he is not interchangeable like the Scramble City Combiners. My Devastator never stayed together very well though, so it was hard to have him in a play battle with autobots.

    After that, Computron is terrific, looks awesome and each individual piece is great on its own. Predaking is also very impressive. Those would probably be my top 3.

    For the time being seeing as I only own 1 G1 combiner, I'm gonna have to say Piranacon. I seriously love the fishy aesthetic and I only wish he was brought back for the PCC line.

    Defensor is awesome because he has a robo-ladder ponytail. That and he doesn't fall apart just by breathing on him. I'M LOOKING AT YOU DEVASTATOR.

    Even though the sword is puny, Predaking is my favorite. His size and color as well as his appearance give it a real look of brutality. Love it.

    Defensor for me with Computron a close second. Predaking if we're only talking Decepticons although he's like a combiner and a half he's so damn big.

    i always liked Computron and Abominus most.

    they were a great pair to have battle, primitives vs high tech. with computron being the brains, and abominus being the bronze.

    and on top of that both of them actually have a bunch of fully unique molds, unlike the car cons and the air bots.

    especially the air bots, while they were each different jets, they were basically the same toy over and over again.
    however i do still like the stunticons, but wow was i disappointed in superion when i got him finally :lol 

    predaking is ok, but his arms are way too big, for his tiny sword, :lol
