    Hey all, I know I've seen a post on here for everyone's favorite Gestalt team, but what about everyone's LEAST favorite? Not so much tv show related, but in terms of the toy itself and how it stands up to another combiner set in comparison, whether bad or good.

    For me, Monstructor has never been a favorite. Not only was he small in size by comparison, but for me personally, I never cared for the monster designs. And although he was the first and a tv show regular, Devastor as a toy, by comparison to the other combiners Ive always found to be too fragile. He LOOKS cool on the shelf next to my other combiners, but, as a toy, just very sensative.

    As for favorites, its a tie between Computron and Abominus..I guess I'm just a fan of those 87' combiners lol

    Umm....for me, I think most of the Autobot Gestalts were pretty tacked on. They never seemed cool.

    I never had Devastator until I got the KO version of him a few years back, which by that point, made him a pretty disapointing gestalt, especially as it wasn't a very good KO, so that's rather soured me to the original.

    However, least favorite would probably be Magnaboss. Difficult to transform, and three individuals aren't much on their own IMHO; and in fact, I just couldn't get into it as a figure or as a micro team, so they get my vote.

    BW Magnaboss or Energon Constructicon Maximus. But really asking me which combiner I like the least is like asking which candy bar tastes the worst....I heart combiners.

    G1 only I would have to say the Aerialbots. AS individuals, they were cool as hell, but I don't think his legs were good enough as Superion. He didn't have the same feel as Defensor or Bruticus. Also, I didn't care for Menasor. Same as the Aerialbots, they were cool individually, but they seem to be tacked on to a mask-wearing Motormaster.

    Superion. I just don't like him. The aerialbots figures are pretty weak. And I can't stay the chicken legs on Superion.

    Pft, Superion Maximus is a pooper scooper of a combiner.

    I second the vote for Mega Dinobot. Energon Grimlock and Swoop should never have seen the light of day.

    If we are talking G1 combiners, I have the most trouble with Raiden. Devastator is weak too, but I still like him.

    i dont like a lot of the post-g2 combiners. they try to make them too complicated. some of the energon ones had potential if they would have given them hands and feet, but they didnt so thus they fail.

    I just don't warm up to Menasor for some reason. It's the only Deception combiner besides Monstructor that I don't have. I'd rate Defensor higher than Menasor even though it's at the bottom of my list too. I hate the look of Road Caesar as well.
