    Just thaught this was quite intresting made me think about what gestalts i would like to see updatd and which i can live without. This list is just me counting episodes listed under each combiner on twfwiki i beleive it applies to the amount the combined form is seen in the series and not to its members.

    Gestalt appearances (in episodes)
    Devastator- 13
    Superion-10
    Predaking- 8
    Bruticus- 7
    Menasor - 7
    Defensor- 5
    Abominus- 5
    Computron-3

    What's your point?

    Your post feels like an incomplete thought.

    Lol oh dear i always think that when i read gestalt looks like i wrote that in the tread title by accident

    As for my point i dunno i was pretty shocked by some of the low figures for some characters such as computron and abominus i would have thaught predaking didnt appear too often but actually he was among one of the most featured

    Abominus and Computron can be explained by the fact that they were late additions to the cast in an already crowded season. And Computron's kind of hard to write for, the way he was written as coming up with ways to defeat his enemies slowly and methodically. That gets old real fast.

    Predaking was a new addition at the start of season 3 and was Galvatron's secret weapon so naturally he got fielded quite often. If Devastator was a first generation model combiner and the likes of Superion and Bruticus were the second, then Predaking was either the peak of that technological generation or a huge leap into the new generation of tech. Either way, he was the single most powerful Decepticon about, so the Decepticons made sure to use him a lot. (Of course, the real world explanation would be that with five bigger more expensive toys he needed more of a marketing push so it goes back to the whole "selling toys" thing).

    Defensor's lack of use is kind of surprising but I guess he was just plain hard to write for or the writers found the characters unexciting. I remember seeing some Protectobot episodes where Defensor didn't show up though so the team got more use even if the combiner was a rare appearance.

    What ever happen to Superiorn?
    We saw him in his un-combined mode for like a episode and he vanished.

    Aerialbots were seen in a bunch of season 3 episodes, including the Return of Optimus Prime (both Superion and individual Aerialbots appear) and Rebirth (before Galvatron took over Cybertron).
