    I used to love Devastator. From G1, into the Maximus version in Energon, to the excellent version in All Hail Megatron. Then... yea. Seems the Radicon Board is nothing but Deva-Customs, and now we have the TFC guys coming out with Hercules. Enough, people. Please? There are so many Combiners in TF, from G1, onward to show love to.

    Menasor
    Piranhacon
    Superion
    Computron
    Bruticus

    I'm not saying don't build a Devastator if you like him. Just saying that, maybe, sometime soon we can all agree... enough is enough. And maybe the Big Green Lug could use a well deserved rest. Yea?

    I get what the OP is saying, but I don't think I'm alone in thinking that Devastator is the most popular & definitely the most well known. This plays a role even for fans like us, so it's gonna draw something good from that. Similarly speaking, names & homages will be more noticeable, so that's another thing.

    ... not that I'd be opposed to seeing a new age Superion, but it's kinda understandable why Devastator is done a lot more.

    I'd like a taller than unicron Predaking (with predacon variant) third party Combiner, like Hercules.

    Also, updated Computron, Piranhacon, and modern Menasor would be good.

    Devastator has seriously become the Bumblebee of combiner teams.

    Predaking has at least had a couple of reissues over the past few years. And Piranhacon for that matter...

    Not gonna say that updated/classics-style versions of either or both wouldn't be awesome, because it would, but I still think they should focus more on teams like the Technobots, Protectobots and the Stunticons who don't seem to get the attention the others do. I suppose it depends if you count the recent Animated Botcon Stunticons as 'attention' in the context of this thread.

    Just watch them all switch to RID Landfill now.

    But really, I have no issue with Devastator. I rather see updates of him instead of another glorified truck, an alt mode confused silver bot, another drone in the bee hive, and another back stabbing jet.

    I do think Rail Racer could use a update, trains are hardly done. But Predaking would be great, can't ever have enough Predacons in these times.

    I want new combiners. A Wrecker combiner would be awesome.

    I'd definitely like to see all the G1 combiners get the Devy treatment from the third parties.

    I would buy the Combaticons, Aerialbots and Predacons in a heartbeat.

    The Stunticons, Protectobots, and others are somewhat lower priorities for me, but I'd probably get them as well, even at TFC prices! :)

    The truth was spoken in these statements, hence I shall quote them for remembrance sake.
    Also add Computron should get a 3rd party release as hasbro will never do it rite! It is possible to make scramble city style combiners with relatively decent scaled members if you chose the altmodes wisely. A small space fighter, a lightcycle ripoff, a small drill tank and a futuristic car would scale perfectly with a good sized space cruiser. And Scaterrshot's little transformation quirk can be dealt with to make it less abuseable with one ounce of imagination.

    One of these 3rd party groups better make a Dinoking or there is no justice in this world.

    Protectorbots please, but with some other vehicle mode for Groove since that's always bugged me. Motorbike for a leg and helicopter for an arm indeed!
