    It'd be a mix of Cyberverse, Deluxes and Voyagers:
    Cyberverse Legion Dirt Boss
    Cyberverse Commanders Mixmaster, Heavy Load and Roadblock (yellow 'dozer leg)
    Deluxes Long Haul, Scrapper, and Hightower
    Voyagers Scavenger and Overload

    The combination would be thus:
    Mixmaster as the neck
    Scavenger as the upper torso and upper arms
    Overload as the crotch
    Hightower, Dirt Boss and Scrapper as the arms
    Long Haul, Heavy Load and Roadblock as the legs

    Seems like a decent if expensive fig idea?

    So there would be a figure solely dedicated to be the crotch of a larger figure? That poor Transformer...

    Well we got a bayverse legends devy that works pretty well for what it is. Your idea is cool but hasbro would never put that much effort into making a combiner like that especally someone with as little screen time as him. some would rage that a combiner had legends and voyagers. But I like your idea

    Well, the logic behind the sizes is this:
    Dirt Boss is the smallest, smaller than Mixmaster and would have a scorpion-like robot form, thus making an easy hand transformation
    Mixmaster would be lanky and wrap around Overload's head/neck section
    Heavy Load and Roadblock would have normal-ish robot forms but would have to suplex into leg mode
    Long Haul would have a transformation similar to the FAB version, but a different leg transform than the Legends fig
    Scrapper would be similar to the legends fig
    Hightower would also have a scorpion-like bot form, but with the cab being the head. No real changes to how he turns into an arm, other than having the insides of the treads be the connection point
    Overload would be the core skeleton of the gestalt and have the crab-taur robot form. He'd also have the head (stored under the vehicle form prime mover) which broke apart into the torso. The trailer's tires would form the hip joints, while the trailer itself would compress into the spine (as well as be the robot form arms)
    Scavenger would be mostly the same, but in gestalt form would wrap around Overload and have a socket to plug Mix into. Mix's cab would be the base of the neck, while the bucket arm of the excavator would fold in upon itself after splitting for the robot form arms, which would have the connection sockets hidden in the joint.

    Complicated sounding, but I can see the engineering being semi-simple.

    I'm content with the Legends combiner we did get, but if Hasbro/Takara made your idea anyways I'd certainly pick it up.

    See, things like this are why I want to work on Transformers. Don't expect me to be able to draw the damn things, but expect good ideas and good stories.

    While I would certainly buy that if made, I would also just settle for non-combining toys of the remaining Constructicons regardless of any scale. I want Scrapper mostly as he actually showed up in robot mode onscreen, but Overload would be sweet, and Hightower could be crazy).
