    What is your favorite Gestalt to date? I am excluding the combination of only 2 figures. This isn't the merging of two figures to create the same size figure...meaning no Skylinx or Omega Primes.

    Though from Computron to Railracer old or new what is your favorite?

    Personally now the bar has been set for me at Bruticus with the Fans project set. This is just a menacing heavily armored monster and with Classics star scream in front, it just is perfect! The hands, the massive rifles and shotguns, and the functionality of the props and weapons in vehicle modes are just brilliant!

    So what is your favorite? I would say to include articulation in the measure of best and for me it's an important trait, but that would leave out the G1 figures mostly.

    Everyone's on a high with the Fans project set right now so I'll skip that as a given. I'll say Liokaiser. 6 bot combination, the chest/arm interlock is really unique.

    for me, the winner of the beauty contest is Predaking. the orange, the yellow, gold and with that wingspan, he is gorgeous.

    as far as the individual parts, i really like the Technobots, but as a team, it isn't as nice as Mr. Predaking.

    EZ Collectors Devestator remains a firm favourite for me. The combination technique is inventive and impressive for the legends class. While the figure is not very movie accurate, it has a bags of character and each member brings variety to the set. Besides, I love his cheeky grin in combined form ;)

    I agree.

    Personally, Magnaboss has a soft spot in my heart. It was the first time I'd seen a combiner that didn't rely on the old "each limb is a robot" combination from the G1 days, and I love Beast Wars, so...

    JRX is always the number one for me. I could be biased.

    Yep. Number one vote would be this.

    Agreed. JRX/RR was kickass. Probably one of the more poseable combiners.

    Although Predaking's my favorite gesalt, as far as toys go, I'm going with EZ Devastator or Magmatron.
    -EZ Devs is really well done, and although movie Devs doesn't need components that have bot modes, the fact that this one does is really fun.
    -Magmatron is unique and full of personality. Even without individual bot modes, his components are playable and fun in their own right.

    Never been a fan of gesalts, though. I believe it was the need for a baggie of parts to go along with the toys that just made me dislike them as a kid, and it carried over as an adult.

    Legends Devastator and Armada Perceptor are winners. I love tiny combiners.

    Even though Devestator was my first combiner and I love him so; I'm gonna have to go with Predaking. Both toy and character are phenomenal.

    Predaking gets my vote. I've always loved how he was different from all the other combiners. I especially liked how the individual figures were all the same size, making him one large, badass-looking gestalt!
