    Perosnally i dont think one truly stands out above others. They are all bricks in gestalt mode crappy individual robot modes. All have the same play value really.

    This is really personal preference which do you like the looks of more.

    Bruticus and Defensor have some great nostalgia ticks from my childhood. I never quite liked the look of Menasor and Superion. Gestalts have their obvious hooks, but some look more like a robot wearing vehicles for limbs than others.

    Anyway, Defensor is my recommendation based solely on a very cool central figure (Hot Spot). Overall the Combaticons are a more fun group to play with though, and Bruticus is hotter than Hansel right now.

    Firstly, go for Defensor & Bruticus.

    Menasor & Superion... Just because Menasor is the first representation of Decepticon Cars and Superion, other than Jetfire, is the first representation of Autobots Jets.

    Other than that, my personal all time favorite combiner is Devastator (with CrazyDevy's Add-Ons, this is much more amazing) followed closely by Predaking.

    Man, Blot was pretty cool. Never liked how Sinnertwin came off as Hun-Grr's little nephew. For that matter, I never liked the name Hun-Grr. Great gestalt, though.

    I'll never forget when my girlfriend at the time once asked me if Rippersnapper was supposed to be a giant sperm.

    Oddly, this was one of the reasons I never liked these two. They never really fit in with the rest. Plus most of the limb guys seemed pretty interchangeable, personalitywise.

    This. Though Piranacon stands out a little since there are six team members and it's fun to trade off which one gets to be the gun (even though Overbite definitely makes the best gun)

    Defensor. Hot Shot as a blue fire-truck is amazing.

    I always thought it was funny that the Terrorcons had Gobot-y names.

    Anyway, Devastator, Computron, Piranacon, and Predaking are tops in my book.

    I always liked the Protectorbots and Combaticons more due to the variety in the team's alt modes. I am surprised they never had the Stunticon and Arielbot figures trade sides for some other line to fill out ranks.

    Pretty much every combiner has been in "playoffs" over the past few weeks in Gen/Disc and it's pretty much decided that Bruticus rules all.

    The obvious choice is the Predicons.

    Predaking kicks em all in the aft.

    Computron is a close second though.
