    I really like these style combiners for the simple reason that you can interchange parts from other combiner teams and make your own combinations. You don't have to combine them any one way like say Devastator.

    Don't get me wrong, the Constructicons are nice combiners but there's only one way to combine them.

    I was just watching a toy review on the Seacons and found out that even though they have 6 Members like the Constructicons they still have more playability. Each limb aside from being an arm or leg like any other Scramble City combiner can also be a gun.

    In a way this is kinda stupid because it's kinda hard to lift a gun that's the same size as the arm holding it. Because of the obvious issues that causes I'm not really interested in the targetmaster mode. I just really like the added ability to use it if one wanted to. You can really just put each limb into whatever mode you think would look the best rather than just combining them the way you're suppose to.

    So ANYWAY... I was just thinking... using any Scramble City style combiners that can actually interchange (I'm not sure if Energon limbs have compatible connection points with G1 toys.) how would you combine them in a new way? If you actually have any please post pictures!

    Here are some ideas I came up with. I don't own any of them so I can't actually build these combinations. (If someone has these pictures please.)

    Motormaster (Body), Blast Off (Right Arm), Swindle (Left Arm), Sinnertwin (Right Leg), Vortex (Left Leg)

    Hot Spot (Body), Strafe (Right Arm), First Aid (Left Arm), Nosecone (Right Leg), Fireflight (Left Leg)

    Onslaught (Body), Overbite (Right Arm), Sinnertwin (Left Arm), Brawl (Right Leg), Cutthroat (Left Leg)

    Scattershot (Body), Strafe (Right Arm), Nosecone (Left Arm), Lightspeed (Right Leg), Streetwise (Left Leg)

    Wonder why "Defensor" is illustrated as if his left arm was physically torn off, rather than just de-combined? Meanwhile, "Bruticus" is looking ready to steal Air Raid back.

    to me, it just looks like unconnected wires/parts.

    He doesn't have an arm because the remaining two combiner bots from all of the combined mashups are on the ground shaking hands...

    The Bruticus one doesn't have two arms either.

    The question isn't where is the arm, but why does it look like a "jagged/torn" socket instead of a "smooth" uncombined connection port.

    I question the idea that a uncombined connection port would be "smooth"

    Oh, I gotcha... yea, that's kinda' crazy. Maybe they're going for some kinda' movie-type vibe to where it heals up once combined?
