    Out of all the Combiners / Guestalts (what ever you prefer to call them), what is your most favorite combiner team and why?

    Who is your most favorite comebiner character? Is it the same as the combiner your favorite team merges to form?

    And then of all the individuals that are on a combiner team, which character is your favorite?

    I ask this many questions because I'm doing a project and your selections will way an impact on my decisions. Please choose from the Decepticon side as well as the Autobot side. :wink: 

    I'll go first to start the converstation. :)  For me Superion has always been my favorite Autobot Combiner, with Computron a close 2nd. How can you not like the unique intelligence coming from 5 transformers combined into one gigantic one? The Aerialbots are without a doubt my favorite Autobot group and I really like Silverbolt as the unique leader he is for his sense of right and wrong, but I also like Air Raid a lot too. I'd say that Strafe is my 3rd favorite Autobot combiner team member individual just because I love his care free excitment thrill seeking persona.

    From the Decepticons, It's touch to chooose between Bruticus and Predaking as my favorite. Abominus gets an honorable mention. From the Decepticon individual team members I like Razorclaw the most because of his cool look and his bada$$ way of doing things, with honorable mentions to Divebomb, Blast Off, Hook, and Scrapper.

    Who are your favorites?

    Bruticus is probably my favorite combiner, with Menasor as a close second.

    I always enjoyed the military vehicles. But funny enough, even though Bruticus is my favorite combiner, and my favorite combiner team is the combaticons, my favorite character from a combiner team is Motormaster.

    My favourite combiner team has to be the Seacons, with the team's favourite member in my book being Snaptrap on account of him being both brilliant and brutal. Piranacon is a total beast.

    Computron is a pretty cool guy

    I like the Constructicons and Combaticons too. The latter mostly because of Fansproject.

    Defensor is my favorite. One of the ones I completed with my father, I was more drawn to the vehicle choices, and that First Aid episode from the cartoon always stood out in my mind from childhood during the long period where there was no way to rewatch the show. I like to think of "Rescue Bots" as the Protectobots for a new generation

    As for individuals, my tops would be Swindle. He doesn't even need a team to stand out, as "Animated" proved.

    Superion is my favorite combiner, but the combaticons are my favorite team. That evil A team vibe is just too cool. And Swindle is easily my favorite team member.

    It's a shame the Seacons never got any western animation backstory. That would have made them awesome all the way around.

    BTW, no Monstructor fans? LOL

    My favorite team has to be the Predacons, cause of their animal forms, i always loved them in the G1 cartoon. My favorite team member is Razorclaw.

    Its a shame that the Dinobots never combined, that would have been awesome.

    Combined: Predaking, the look
    As a team: Stunticons, the arrogance
    Single 1: Scattershot, the anxious attitude

    It's a weird choice, but I actually really love Landfill. Part of it is probably that he was my first real combiner, but I still think that the design is good, the sculpting is awesome, and the modular design is pretty cool (even if my Heavy Load is broken and can only become the arms - although, in fairness, that is by far my favorite combination). Rail Racer is pretty boss, too, but I think Landfill just edges him out.

    As for individual members I was always a huge fan of First Aid when I was a kid and I was really glad I had his toy. I also loved my Afterburner figure, even though he was all I ever had of Computron.

    My favorite combiner Team is the Stunticons. I love cars and decepticons. How can you go wrong with the Stunticons then, eh? I had them when I was a kid and loved them then as well.

    And Menasor is definitely my fav gestalt, even though he's never been a powerhouse or anywhere close to the smartest of the bunch, I still love him... mostly because he's the combined form of the Stunticons.

    Motormaster and Dragstrip are my fav combiner characters. But if I had to choose between them it'd be Motormaster. He's so adorable trying to be better than Optimus yet can never and will never be. Also he's got a Big Rig for boots.

    Runner up Gestalts: Predaking, Bruticus, Devestator, Abominus and Piranhacon (in that order)

    Oh right the 'Bots have combiners too...

    Fav Gestalt team on the 'Bot side: Technobots, never had them as a kid but always thought they looked cool.

    Fav Gestalt: not sure on this one, I do kind of like Defensor so I'll go with that. I always liked the fact that his gestalt head was actually part of Hot Spot.

    Fav gestalt individual character: This is a tough one, I've always be more partial to the 'Cons and it was my brother that was the 'bot guy. I'll go with Streetwise just because I like his toy.
