    I've seen so many different ways. Hasbro Energon connectors, lego pieces, megablock joints....

    it all depends on how big your bot is, both in size of space, and how much weight you need to support.

    Well, i used Bionicle joints on mine, but be aware they don't hold much weight at all.

    Honestly, you're best off starting with a big figure an going from there. Primus, Unicron, Cyb. Metroplex, they all work. Primus is great for good arms, Unicron's waist section is great, and Metro's just Ratchet-joint-galore.

    As for each bot's individual joints, Energon connectors (from Superion/Bruticus Maximus), lego Technics, Knight's kingdom, etc. work, and so do Neo Shifters and the newer Hero Factory.

    Still, my only word of advice for you is that you should just try it yourself. I spent 9 months on and off trying to get my first to work, and it taught me a lot, weight issues, how best to support it, etc. that you just can't learn from a book.

    Also, read Ptitvite's Technical Data.

    There are a great number of figures made in the past decade that have used a combining gimmick. Take advantage of what Hasbro/Takara has already given you.

    You have Energon/PCC combiner ports and plugs. You've got Energon Optimus and his Thunderbirds team. You've got Cybertron Optimus and those mushroom pegs they use for his super-mode.

    There's a lot out there to work with, even within just the confines of Transformers figures.

    You can use Aso blocks or the KO version of it.
    Look at this!

    Except that those things hold as much weight as a rice paper bridge in the rain.

    KO or not they still are way too weak for combiners. :(

    I was thinking these could be used for like a legends or scout combiner.

    Am I wrong in thinking that they should atleast be able to hold up to that?
