    Go ahead-make a list of combiners you wanna see, and name which 3rd Party group you want to make them! For me:

    TFC
    Constructicons/Devastator
    Predacons/Predaking
    Arialbots/Superion

    FP
    Combaticons/Bruticus
    Stunticons/Menasor
    Technobots/Computron

    Undecided
    Protectobots/Defensor
    Terrorcons/Abominus
    Seacons/Piranacon

    leaning towards Abominus from TFC and Defensor from Maketoys, though not sure lol

    Think we had one of these before, and I'm pretty sure my answer will be different this time, for no good reason.

    TFC:
    Predaking
    Devastator (obviously)
    (superion)
    (computron)

    Fansproject:
    Menasor
    Defensor
    Superion
    (Computron)

    Maketoys:
    Abominus
    Piranacon


    People are saying TFC can't do "sleek" robots/alt modes, but take a look at their PCC limb planes. :) 

    To be honest I don't know who would make the best Computron.

    I would want Fansproject and maybe Maketoys to do all them. Having Hercules finally assembled, I don't think TFC is skillful enough, and I find myself questioning a lot of their design decisions.

    I would go TFC for Predaking for the sheer size. Fansproject for Menasor.

    Looking at that list I find myself wanting Abominus the most

    I had a similar thought, which is why I picked mostly big ones them. I get the feeling I'd like their versions of Superion and especially Predaking for how fricken huge he'd be. But ya, the rest would mostly be FP, maybe even MT

    gotta think TFC has learned a lot from this experience though. Especially considering they're also doing the DinoNot combiner as well as PCC limbs.

    I'm thinking Predaking would be the most difficult one to upgrade. Would be interesting to see if they go for blocky looking "animals" or a more updated "realistic" looking variant.

    Perfect Effect for Computron!

    It would cost $1000 and be armed to the teeth.

    Plus I am begining to think that their style lends itself more towards cybertronian designs.

    Fansproject for Menasor for sure!

    The only combiner I would want TFC to tackle next, due to the sheer size, would be Predaking. After that I would love for them to move onto other big, non-combiner, base/city formers like Omega Supreme, Metroplex, Overlord and Tripticon.

    Very much looking forward to FP's Menasor. But beyond that, PLEASE, any 3rd party developer, give us some Autobot combiners!!!

    this.
    Also FP for Abominus.

    I would also want to see the TFC take on everything, i really like having the choice and i'd like to see their take on future combiners, although i hope they leave the gorrilla-esque proportions with devastator.

    TFC
    Predacons
    (New)superion
    Trainbots
    Monsrcutor no shells (Prentender monsters/dino force) repaint

    Fansproject
    Menasor
    Defensor
    Abominus
    Computron

    Maketoys
    (New) Combatacons
    The brest force
    The three car combiner from masterforce
    and that other autobot combiner thats six robots but they also become 3 robots and then one super robot
    but thats my two cents

    FP/Maketoy - Everything except Predaking
    TFC - Predaking

    That's how I'd like it. I don't like the way TFC does combiners. Voyager individual bots with random colors and extreme blockiness to the point of looking like Energon figures? No thanks.

    Must be hive mind in here. I didn't read the previous posts before I commented.

    The only one that feels "blocky" to me is Silverbolt, which I already hate because of other issues. Certainly wouldn't mind if Maketoy just redid Superion completely.

    FP for all of them. Defensor would be amazing.

    is why I see them as blocky. Though a MT Superion would be pretty slick

    I would characterize TFC's aesthetic as "rigid". Fansproject does fairly blocky, "chunky" designs, but they feel so much more refined to me. It's difficult for me to really quantify the difference.

    Oh. I thought you were talking about the toys, not the G1 models. In that case, almost everything would be blocky lol.
