    So we've been getting them and hearing about them from all different companies-just wanted to get things straight:

    TFC:
    Devastator (Herc)
    Superion (Uranos)
    Abominus?
    Computron?

    TFCStarcat
    Defensor
    Dinobots

    MMC:
    Predaking (Ferocicons)

    Maketoys:
    Devastator (Giant)
    Computron?

    Fansproject:
    Bruticus (Collossus)
    Menasor (???)
    Glacialbots?


    What combiners havent I mentioned, and have we heard rumors of them at all?

    TFC Defensor.... but I really don't feel like that one counts. Probably about 80% of us are waiting on a better version to come out from someone else if TFC really wants to pass that money maker by and do the Starcats repaint instead.

    Considering they're both repaints from the crappy Starcats line, I don't think they deserve to be in a transformer gestalt list.

    I badly want to see more from Maketoys/Fansproject regarding Computron and Menasor. So hoping they tackle Defensor and Superion afterwards, as while TFC's one looks really great I just don't think I could stomach ~£1000 for all three combiners; that, and how would I display three Hercules size figures!

    The only Computron I know of is from MakeToys. No word on that one yet past teaser images.

    Yes, I'll be getting that one.

    If the starcats combiners don't count, why does the glacialbots?
    and I don't think we need question marks after FP Menasor, since we've already seen two of the limbs and a silhouette of the whole thing. :)

    I think the ????s by FP Menasor in the OP imply that it doesn't have an official name yet, not that the release is questionable.

    The way I see it the Glacialbots are meant to fit with the rest of the TF combiners, like some unofficial characters being added to the cannon line by fans.

    Starcats stuff is just totally unrelated to TF.

    Wow... I actually agreed with 90% of what you said. I just don't like the possibility of Maketoy doing anything after Giant

    My problem with Fansproject is the puny size they chose but their creations are fantasic

    TOYWORLD would get it right over them all I bet

    This seems the best general place to ask - does anyone know if any of the third-party combiners (either current or future) are either kibble-free or do something with all the combiner kibble when not using it, such as form an extra vehicle or weapons station or something? I'd really like to go for one of these guys at some point, but I've never favoured the whole bits-fly-out-of-nowhere thing that most Hasbro figures did.

    Most of the kibble in the third party sets turn into something useful in either form, I know both Giant and Hercules are self-contained and the Bruticus Maximus set from Fansproject doesn't really leave anything out though some bits may look a little unnatural (The waist piece just kinda sits at the end of Onslaught's artillery gun in vehicle form.)
