    Starscream's Brigade Link

    So, what were the Combaticon's Cybertron modes before they were detained?

    What did they do to be detained?

    Why is there a detention center run by the Decepticons on Cybertron?


    Teletraan I is somehow linked to Cybertron?

    None of the info prior to Starscream's breaking them out has been revealed to the general public of this universal cluster.

    Read the other questions. There needs to be some clarification in a comic soon.

    Also, I want to see their Cybertron modes.

    Pushy much?

    The Decepticons essentially ruled Cybertron at that time, why wouldn't they have a detention center?

    No, there doesn't.

    How does it feel to want?

    Alright, there's questions here! I shall do my best to answer :D 

    1) We don't know the Combaticon's Cybertronian modes, but we can safely assume they are most likely Cybertronian forms of their Earth modes; e.g Brawl was an alien tank, kinda like ROTF Megatron.

    2) They probably tried to overthrow Megatron, but were defeated and punished. Seems there's no end to treacherous 'Cons :lol 

    3) The Decepticons would have a detention centre to detain prisoners and traitors and such. Even the bad guys generally have a prison or two to chuck people in :) 

    4) Blast-Off doesn't have Astrotrain's magical bigger-inside-than-outside :lolol 

    5) To be fair, Menasor is also extremely powerful, and caught poor Bruticus off-guard. Even the toughest guys can fall if you hit them before they expect it.

    Hope this helps somewhat :)

    FoC gives us them pre-earth ok its not quite G1 but I would not see them being miles off also the War Within comics feature them.

    I kinda like the idea that what ever crime they committed was so wrong that they could not even be trusted to keep their own bodies.

    Also looking at the FoC demo they seem to be quite a bit like the G1 team in that they dont seem to be working for megs yet rather they are siding with megatron... for now

    Would be nice to see them.


    From Blast Off's profile: Determined to one-up Astrotrain, Blast Off grows big enough to transport his teammates and their combined form.

    Menasor did catch Bruticus off guard.

    Yeah, that would be cool. Well, at least FoC has them in Cybertronian forms.

    I remember that one :lol 

    Yep.

    Last year's official fan club stuff did a whole storyline, set in their continuation of the Cartoon continuity, all about how the Combaticons quit the Autobots and became Decepticons and all back at the start of the war. So they do have canonical Cartoon Cybetronian looks from before they were locked up.


    -ZacWilliam, I havn't read it but you can check the wiki.

    That was an fascinating idea. I like the idea of them as Elite Guardsmen gone rouge turned mercenaries for hire.

    The combaticons are by far the best combiner team since their the ones most developed.

    I always pictured their old bodies looking completely different from their new bodies, hell they could've been seekers before.
