    I'm a diehard transformers fan but I really love the combiners the most. Are majority of fans like that and if so why has.t voltron taken off like tformers. Or why do they not do particulary well in tformer fights. So all in all I'm just wonderin who do you guys prefer ( prime megs shockwave etc) or groups ( wreckers, dinobots, etc)

    Sixshot, watch him taking the shit out of the five Aerialbots in his five alt modes. Combiner team owned.

    Another reason voltron didn't take off as much as TF is possibly due to the fact that the Transformers are individual, living beings with their own characterizations and motivations, whereas Voltron in the american series is just piloted by the Voltron force, and is little more than a Megazord.

    I'm a big combiner guy just like you. But I think the non-combining teams tend to have better characterization. I think everyone ends up anticipating the merging into combined mode half the time and really forget that the individual bots have personalities of their own. Of course there are some exceptions like Swindle.

    Sentient robots >>>> piloted robots

    Generally, I prefer combiner teams to non-combining teams. Certain single bots are great characters in my book, too, and outshine even my most beloved combiner teams.

    I don't like combiners, myself. I love the team ideas though (Combaticons, Constructicons, etc...).
