    Predaking, Abominus, Monstructor and Piranacon. Four of the ten big G1 gestalts and glaring omissions from the Combiner Wars. However, with just 8 new molds, some retooling and a little creative license, I think we could get them:

    Predaking:
    Razorclaw - Lion (Torso) [1]
    Divebomb - Eagle [2]
    Rampage - Tiger [3]
    Tantrum - Buffalo [4]
    Headstrong - Rhino [4] {Retool of Tantrum}

    Piranacon:
    Snaptrap - Tortoise (Torso) [5]
    Overbite - Land Shark [6]
    Sea Wing - Manta Ray [2] {Retool of Divebomb}
    Skalor - Coelacanth [6] {Retool of Overbite}
    Tentakil - Squid [7]
    Nautilator - Lobster (Weapon) [8]

    Abominus:
    Hun-Gurrr - Two-headed Dragon (Torso) [1] {Retool of Razorclaw}
    Rippersnapper - Land Shark [6] {Redeco of Overbite}
    Blot - Monster [7] {Retool of Tentakil}
    Sinnertwin - Two-headed Dragon [3] {Retool of Rampage}
    Cutthroat - Hawk Monster [2] {Retool of Divebomb}

    Monstructor:
    Bristleback - Tortoise (Torso) [5] {Redeco of Snaptrap}
    Slog - Monster [7] {Retool of Tentakil}
    Birdbrain - Bird Monster [2] {Retool of Divebomb}
    Scowl - Monster [7] {Retool of Tentakil}
    Wildfly - Bird Monster [2] {Retool of Divebomb}
    Icepick - Monster (Weapon) [8] {Retool of Nautiloator}

    Some match up nicely, others take some squinting, but I believe there is potential, especially given Hasbro's proclivity for reusing combiner parts.

    I have another idea for how this could work
    2 voyagers, 6 deluxes, 4 legends
    V1-Razorclaw, redeco as Lioconvoy (because every line needs a Prime), lose the mane/retool head becomes Birdbrain, add shell/new head becomes Snaptrap
    v2- Hunn Gurr

    D1-Blot, redeco into Scowl and Icepick
    D2-Rippersnapper, new claws to make Overbite, new head and claws to make Skalor
    D3-Rampage, replace head with twinhead rig replace tail with twintail rig to make SInnertwin, replace all limbs with tentacles to make Tentakil
    D4-Divebomb, new head and tail to make Cuttroat, redeco to make Wildfly
    D5-Tantrum, new head to make Headstrong, new backplate with wing thingies to make Bristleback
    D6-Seawing

    L1-Snarler as a handheld drill weapon for Predaking
    L2-Nautilator as a gun for Piranacon
    L3-Slog as a chestplate for Monstructor
    L4-Sparkstalker as a handgun for Abominus (retool into Flamefeather for dual wielding action)

    and for Takara Markets...
    Monstructor can be redecoed into DinoKing
    Abominus can be redecoed as Goradora
    Piranacon can be redecoed into God Neptune

    and I'm sure a set of Maximals or Monsterbots could be feasibly retooled out of these guys even further.

    The nondescript nature of the alt-modes of Monstructor in particular make it an interesting exercise for sure. I think we're both on the right track though, as there's a lot of potential for retooling.
    5 deluxe figures, transforming from robot to alt-mode to limb to weapon. I'm happy to be proven wrong but unfortunately I don't like your chances.

    Anymore, I just don't think I can deal with a Voyager-class lion standing next to a Deluxe-class tiger, rhino and buffalo. I'm sure we'll be getting a Predaking shortly, but I hope they reimagine him and aren't so slavish to G1.

    But that's how the entire Combiner Wars line worked. 1 Voyager torso, 4 Deluxe limbs.

    More to your point @SG Roadbuster Beast Wars II fans could get something tailored to them:

    Lio Convoy (Redeco of Razorclaw)
    Apache (Retool of... something)
    Big Horn (Retool of Tantrum)
    Tasmania Kid (Retool of Rampage)
    Scuba (Redeco of Tentakil)
    Diver (Make him a weapon)

    They missed a HUGE trick on a Predaking combiner for CW. Fans and I suspect casual buyers would have been eating that stuff up off the shelves like crazy.

    By the end of this trilogy, I'm confident we'll have gotten Predaking.

    I hope you're right. I'd sell a kidney for that.

    Apache could be retooled from Blot
    (speaking of Beast Wars 2nd, who else wants a Titan Class Majin Zarak and Leader class Tako Tank?)

    Agreed, even if Predaking is the only beast combiner we get. Which I hope is not the case.

    I think if they could find the budget to include weapons that could plug into the port for the hands/feet, all a "targetmaster" mode would have to be is foot mode with a weapon plugged in the end.

    What do people envision when they think of updated versions of bots like Blot, Scowl and Slog?

    Honestly , I don`t think people know how to imagine AWESOME bots like BLOT , or SLOG .... there all , every one Str8 up monsters ( which in case some have nothing to compare it to .) most to day like to think of BLOT as some troll ... but rewatching G1 season 3 , and studying his movements , body language , how he is built over all - It looks as though he was just ment to be a whole new `` Thing `` all together ..... Parts look ape like , but then his feet are sharp and pointy ( depending on toy or cell animation ) ect .... I happen to love BLOT ..... the TERRORCONS in general . Epic sh*t .

    Btw , They all were Voyager , All most , cause in G1 the deluxe was the size ( all most any way . ) to a voyager .... so just hope he is done like that ... cause the PREDACONS had there own unique combination sequence , just like Devastator , and Monstructor as well .... So , lets light a candle and put out some good vibes in hopes of it done that way ....

    Do you mean a Predaking boxset? Like Devastator, with all Voyager-sized figures?

    True, of course, but honestly I didn't care much for that either. It made for a too-small torso and too-long arms. The torso robot needs to be bigger than the others, I just think it doesn't need to be one of the smaller animals just because he happens to be the leader.
