    Thought I would throw this out there: What do you prefer when it comes to your combiners: That all the members match, thus giving you one combined bot that flows together but the team is then bland? Or do you prefer the Power Rangers style where every limb is different but the separate members all have their own color scheme to make them stand out?

    Can I vote for the exact same robots (including the torso) with the exact same color scheme? If not, then I vote for the first one.

    It doesn't matter much but I prefer each of the members having their own colors.

    I prefer when the teams have a complementary colour scheme like the constructions and the predacons, however the mixed colours worked well for some like the Stunticons and combaticons.

    This is pretty confusing for me. Out of the four options, the two of them seems appropriate to me. The option which I selected and wouldn't like to change either is that "I don't mind either as long as the toy is good" and the other one which confused my decision is the Bruticus style.

    I like both color styles. The quality of the toy matters more than anything else to me.

    Depends on the team.

    For the Constructicons it has to be the same colors because somehow they just look wrong when they are different colors. The Stunticons would look weird if they were all the same color. But I could see the Combaticons working either way if they were done up in either realist military colors or some crazy colors for military vehicles.

    I like the individuals to have their own color schemes, though at the same time I want some kind of 'uniform' -- a shared color or pattern. I also like cases such as Movie Devastator where a few bots share the same main color and the gestalt is (mostly) symmetrical color-wise.
    I like my TFs to conspicuously show that they do have alternate forms. For individual bots, this would be distinctly vehicle/beast/etc. kibble; for gestalts, this would be making it obvious more than one bot makes him up, and color is the most obvious way to do that.

    I like everyone to have the same color scheme. I think it makes the combined form look better. They could pick three or four primary colors, use all of those colors on each figure in varying amounts, and end up with figures that look different enough from each other but still look uniform.

    I'm hoping FunPub does this for Bruticus when he's a Botcon set.

    I kinda like what they did with the wreckers, having orange and gray in some quantity and matching orange torso. Its a happy medium, although when I first saw the pictures , I thought computron/technobots.

    Different colors, but ones that match somewhat.

    Constructicons are too dull.

    Combaticons are too all over the place.

    Ones like G2 Bruticus, that have the uniting theme of purple, or even the Seacons that comes from a color pool of five or so colors work the best for me.

    I like the colors to be cohesive but I don't really care if they're all not the exact same color. IMO all of the combiners aside from the G2 repaints were bad.
