    What figures do you use for your Classics Combiner Team members? Some teams have to be modified to include figures from other lines. Who do you repurspose from other lines to make your Classics Technobots, Protectobots, Stunticons, Etc...

    I'm a stickler for NOT cross contaminating lines. So far my only Classics combiner is Bruticus. I have Silverbolt and Onslaught from Bruticus and Superion but alas they have no limb/friends.

    So to answer your question...nobody. Hasbro needs to revisit combiners correctly.

    It's up to you really. Some people like mixing energon figures with classics, others don't. If it looks good to you then go for it.

    I personally mix RID and Unicron trilogy figures with classics. You have to dig real deep on the cool stuff thread but someone did some nice terrocons and technobot combinations. Pretty cool if you think of the terreorcons as an insecticon type horde. The technobots were mostly energon figures based around using energon jetfire as scattershot.

    Yeah, especially when the Hasbro Astrotrain looks more like Blastoff

    Am in the process of finishing up my Stunticon set. Check it out if you so desire in the Radicons section, but to answer the question, the base modes I used were:
    Motormaster-KO Nemesis Prime
    Breakdown-Red Alert
    Wildrider-Red Alert
    Dead End-Jazz
    Dragstrip-Classics Drag Strip

    I don't crosspollenate or repurpose. No matter how much I squint and stare at that shitty ROTF Brawn, he'll never be Classics Brawn. Same with any combiner characters for the Classics line. Or any characters for that matter. Not counting customs, I stick with what has been released under the C/H/U/G(ish) banner, and anyone who was a repaint of one of those original molds (See Crasher)

    I don't have any Combiners for my Classics Shelf. RoTF/ Fansproject Bruticus is close but Brawl and Vortex don't make the cut as being Classics updates for me.

    hmmm. so far only the ones i've customized. i'm super picky. the FP stuff too small and fugly looking. even as a stand in it doesn't deserve to be in my display case nor my hard earned money. i've been contemplating on making the stunts but i just my sold last inferno.

    @Predakign2000 you should google custom classics combiners. there are already tons out there. just have to repaint them yourself.

    repaint:

    - jazz as deadend
    - red alert repaint as breakdown
    - BIS hot rod as wildrider

    Not too fussed about Swindle, but if I find something for cheap then that would be fun.

    I don't have any Classics combiners. I have Classics Drag Strip and the Takara Classics releases of Wildrider, Onslaught, and Silverbolt. I kept the FansProject-upgraded Energon combiners in Energon. I won't get more until Hasbro/Takara choose to make more (or, in the meantime, I can afford the TFC Devastator).

    Constructicons= 3/5 of the classics Constructicons set. After a while the black limbs bothered me so I replaced them with Energon limbs (Bonecrusher and Wideload). And PCC Sledge+drones. And maybe someday a universe Heavy load.

    Combaticons= ROTF Bruticus Maximus, with none of that fans project crap. And PCC Bombshock+drones. And perhaps a Henkei Onslaught, when I find the money.

    Aerialbots= ROTF Sueprion Maximus, again none of that fans project crap. Plus if I can get them cheap, PCC Searchlight +aerialbot drones. Henkei Silverbolt, again money permitting.

    Stunticons= PCC Over-Spastic-Run +PCC stunticons. Universe Dragstrip and Classics "Motormaster."

    Protectobots= PCC Stakeout and protectobot drones. And Universe legends Hotzone, Blades, and Red Alert (as Streetwise).
