    The Pretender Monsters.

    I honestly couldn't give a rat's arse about most G1 combiner teams. Individual members like Swindle, Brawl, Vortex and Breakdown? Sure! But most of these guys barely had any personality beyond being "part of a bigger guy." Especially the Constructicons. Sure, a lot of them had bios in TF:Universe, but very little of them showed much personality in the 'toons. Plus, a lot of them have names that were better used on other characters (BW Rampage and Silverbolt are both completely superior to their G1 namesakes, Movie Bonecrusher is way better than G1's "Devastator's arm," and so on, so forth.)

    It's probably why I wouldn't have any combiners in my own TF series - it's too easy for writers to fall back and just treat them as parts of a bigger guy with no real attributes beyond that.

    1) Aerialbots for nostalgia about their cartoon appearances and finding their toys the first time. Plus my love for Sky Dive and Silverbolt, Plus the fun of flying little jets around as a kid.

    2) Terrorcons for their whole Design aesthetic.

    3) Technobots for the above, plus nostalgia, plus Lightspeed.

    The Build Team! Has anybody even said that one yet? :lol  After that is probably the Constructicons, then the Combaticons, then the rest just sort of fill in. :D

    constructicons are the only ones i care for as combiners. the rest i like as individual components and even separate units, but i could care less for having 5 thousand fucking combiners.
