    Now that Hasbro have released Universe Onslaught, who do you guys think would be the other Combaticons?

    My take is..
    Brawl :: Movie Leader Brawl
    Swindle :: ............ Animated Swindle? Hell, I dunno, the aesthetics just won't fit.
    Blast-Off :: ?
    Vortex :: ?

    Well, if you're just picking other figures from different lines

    Brawl = movie Brawl
    Vortex = movie Blackout
    Blast Off = Armada Jetfire?
    Swindle = Alt. Swindle

    Assuming we could get some new heads, how about:

    Brawl : movie deluxe Brawl
    Swindle : Universe Hound
    Blast-Off : classics Astrotrain
    Vortex : is there a deluxe helicopter in recent lines? I can't think of one.

    Vortex: Movie Incinerator. Not a helicopter, but an Osprey is close.

    Any way we could get Astrotrain in Henkei-like colors from Hasbro would be fine with me, and I think making Swindle from Hound is inevitable (maybe in the same wave as Red Alert would come?). And I could see Hasbro trying to recolor U. Galvatron into Brawl for an exclusive (probably packed with a desirable repaint!)

    Crossover Hulk could make a perfect Universe Brawl. While for Swindle, it's a tie between Energon Strongarm or Universe Hound.

    My personal team of combaticons:

    Universe Nemesis Prime:Commander (ala RID Scourge)
    Universe Onslaught
    Universe Dropshot
    Movie Divebomb (renamed Hooligan)
    Energon Bruticus Maximus
    Cybertron Swindle
    Cybertron Skyshadow (renamed Skyjack)

    Probably combine limbs from the new universe Bruticus with Energon Bruticus

    Onslaught: Universe Onslaught
    Brawl: Leader Brawl
    Vortex: Energon Cyclonus
    Blast-Off: Universe 1.0 Skywarp
    Swindle: Cybertron Swindle

    If you really wannabe cheap, just get either Energon Bruticus Maximus sets.

    Onslaught :: Takara Universe Onslaught. Acquired.

    Brawl :: Crossover Hulk. Acquired. Oh and, probably a new head would do.

    Vortex :: It's a three-way tie between Movie Incinerator, Uni Springer or Armada Cyclonus.. >__>

    Swindle :: Energon Strongarm, or Uni Hound. *shrugs*

    Blast-Off :: Rather than the lame 80s-minded space shuttle alt-mode, I'm thinking of getting Energon Seeker (F-22), repaint into Blast-Off's color, and yeah, that's gonna be him. Seriously, for a group of militaristic 'Con, of course a fighter jet would do million times better than a space shuttle. Whaddya think?
