    So I've been thinking/wishing that Hasbro made some more Energon Combiners that could be interchangeable with the old Energon combiners and if they did them how they would be done.

    I came up with the following:

    Menasor Maximus:
    • Motor Master - Semitruck (leader)
    • Breakdown - Sports Car
    • Dead End - Sports Car
    • Drag Strip - Racecar
    • Wildrider - Racecar

    That was the easy one, now comes the complicated ones:

    Defensor Maximus:
    • Hot Spot - Fire Truck (leader)
    • Blades - Motorcycle (in G1 Afterburner colors for Computron Maximus)
    • First Aid - Ambulance
    • Groove - Motorcycle
    • Streetwise - Ambulance (In G1 Swindle colors for ROTF Bruticus) (Im thinking make it so the back end of the ambulance can be inverted to go from van to jeep (if you use your imagination))

    Computron Maximus:
    • Scattershot - Spaceship (leader)
    • Afterburner - Drill
    • Lightspeed - Shuttle (In G1 Blast Off colors for ROTF Bruticus)
    • Nosecone - Drill
    • Strafe - Shuttle (In whatever color for Bruticus Maximus)

    So now you make some Target/Walmart/ToysRUs Exclusives:
    • Sports Car from Menasor Maximus in G1 Streetwise colors for Defensor Maximus
    • Racecar from Menasor Maximus in G1 Lightspeed colors for Computron Maximus
    • Ambulance from Defensor Maximus in whatever colors for Original Bruticus Maximus
    • Jet from Superion Maximus in G1 Strafe colors for Computron Maximus
    • Helicopter from Bruticus Maximus in G1 Blades colors for Defensor Maximus
    • Drill from Computron Maximus in whatever colors for (see below)

    Being all hot-swappable, you mix and match until you get the desired robots with the correct limbs. Now you might notice you'll have some extra limbs, mainly tanks, helicopters and drills.

    Hasbro should then make the following two-packs:
    Omen an aircraft carrier leader and his subordinate Token, a hovercraft
    They dont have any other team members, but they look for other gestalt pieces and basically take them over to form Harbinger Maximus (or any other multitude of cheesy names. So that gets rid of one tank, one helicopter and one drill.

    Repaint the Omen/Token set into Forerunner/Outrunner to take care of the remaining repaints/left over limbs.

    And voila. Tons of awesome gestalts with correct limbs, with a bonus two new gestalts.

    Also, if they want to get really fancy, they can give us a landfill maximus with a steamroller body, two dump truck limbs and two cement mixer limbs in colors to match constructicon maximus and repaint them into desolation maximus (or whatever name they feel like making up) in colors to match classics devastator.

    So what do you think?

    Hasbro, get on this.

    You had me up till Computron,then after that I just lost interest.

    If they made the remaining of the G1 combiners in the Energon style,then yea I'd buy them.

    Seems totally possible to me. And I've been saying the same for awhile.

    Defensor and Menasor at least should be made :)

    I would LOVE to get new energon style gestalts for the classics/universe/henkei line. Maybe not quite like what you've got suggested, but it would be very nice to get Defensor, Computron, Menasor, and Predaking

    I'd like hasbro to attempt making real combiners. I'm one of the few people who liked all three of the first energon "sets".

    It would be silly for them to take a step back to the energon aesthetic when designing new molds. Perhaps what you mean is that they should note what the energon figures did well: tripple changeing center bot, housing the head for combined mode, and those pop socket ratchets energon had for linking the small figures up. weapons converting into the hands and feet.

    Show us a new predaking for the next set of classics universe. Even if its not as big as the g1 original. I'd like to hope modern engineering will make up for it.

    Also a Universe update to Armada Tidal Wave could be reached with this tech.

    For the love of god give them articulation with real hands and feet. The Energon glowy bits just looked horrid.

    I would personally like a 4 Deluxe -> 1 Voyager combo though. I tend to like the combiners to be bigger than leader class toys.

    I love the idea for Defensor and Menasor in Energon style. I love Basics especially cars because they fit in with the Duaclones. So to see Streetwise and the Stunticon cars in scale with G1 Prowl and Sideswipe would make me very happy.

    I hate the way most TF cars in recent years have been deluxes. They look ridiculous against the deluxe seekers from titanium. Eneron and Classics.

    All the G1 combiners would be cool in the Energon Combiner scale.

    That's pretty much what I meant by energon style. The connectors were actually quite good for a gestalt. Obviously any new gestalts would be more up to date as far as design and engineering goes, but there were certain aspects of the energon combiners that actually worked REALLY well. The energon gestalts do fit in with the classics aesthetic fairly well.

    They DID actually have pretty good articulation. I do agree with you on the real hands and feet though. Fansproject proved that could be done VERY nicely.
