Yep, another new idea thread, and of all I've come up with so far this one has the LEAST chance of happening, but wouldn't it be fun if Optimus could combine with certain other Autobots, like in the Unicron Trilogy? To initiate a Powerlinx, all OP need do is use his War Cry within the radius of a compatible ally (I'll suggest Leobreaker, Jetfire and Ultra Magnus), and they can agree by activating their R2 ability (it must be fully charged) at the same time. This will lead to a brief transformation sequence after OP leaps into the air for the War Cry: 'Optimus Prime!' 'Jetfire!' (Together) 'POWERLINX!' (Combination finishes) 'SONIC WING MODE!' In said mode, OP wears a Jetfire as a jetpack,complete with fully spread wings and large cannons extending under his arms formed from Jetfires legs, and controls the same way as a jet, only this time possessing both a Nucleon Shock Cannon and Ion Displacer. 'SAVAGE CLAW MODE!' Leobreaker becomes a suit of armour for Optimus' torso, with elongated arms ending in massive claws. In this mode, OPs handles as though he has P.O.K.E equipped, possessing vastly increased speed, and the sword swipes are replaced with alternating claw slashes (which leave a glowing trail in their wake). 'OPTIMUS MAGNUS!' This is the daddy - OP becomes a red and blue giant, wielding Magnus' hammer in one hand, and his own axe in the other. Pressing L1 causes him to smash the hammer into the floor, creating a blast of electricity which damages enemies all around him, and R1 brings the axe down in a broad arc, sending out a slash wave which cuts straight through enemies in front. The REAL power is in his melee however, where he strikes with both weapons at once in an X shaped swing, which will destroy even Titans and Brutes (their shields shatter from the impact) in a single mighty hit. Yes they probably are overpowered, but then they are very expensive and situational to activate, and I wouldn't expect them to be available for Multiplayer. Powerlinxing wasn't to every fans taste, but in my mind the concept embodies the Autobot ideal of teamwork in a very literal sense, and would be great for bringing a real WOW factor into the game along with Gestalts and Triple Changers.
