    So far, Scrapper and Mixmaster are slotted to appear in Animated, but what about the rest of the Constructicons? For that matter, what about the rest of the Combiners? Will there be Animated versions of the Aerialbots or the Predacons? So far, I'm hooked on what I've seen of the toy designs - and they're not even out yet. Compared to some of the inarticulate, misproportioned Gestalts twenty years ago (I'm looking at you, Superion), just think how good an Animated version will be with the standard set by the rest of the line. :drool:

    ... I seriously don't know if a stylized combiner would look good.

    Other than Devastator, probably not, but, with enough retooling someone could easily make an Animated Defensor gestalt out of the toys we've seen so far. Personaly, I'm hoping for Bruticus to be included later on in the series (Season 2 at the earliest).

    I think its way too early to tell yet. I think we have to wait till next year befor combiners are thought about.

    Yeah five chins combine to form Chinimus Maximus, lolololol.

    But seriously, I'm not sure if they'll be doing combiners. It's possible we'll get Devestator out of the Contructicons, but even then that's not a given. And based off the little synopsis things we've seen it doesn't look like there's gonna be any other possible combiners. Of course, there's always season 2! It would be very interesting to see a combiner done Animated style.

    i think it's about damn time they put out a combiner worthy of being a combiner...
    i mean honestly, when will we get a combiner that is in proportion to the rest of the characters we have.
    i'm talking voyager size combiner... six of em, none of this five, one be the middle man crap!
    think of the marketing possibilities. not only (combined) will it be the largest combiner ever, but the largest transformer ever manufactured. fortress/brave maximus won't have ish on this guy.
    i personally root for Bruticus, but chances are it would be Devastator (even though I think we have enough Devastator's)
    six voyager class transformers, twenty bucks a pop, twenty years from now sold as a $1000 reissue set. Hasbro and TakaraTomy would have a friggin hayday.
    DO IT DAMN IT!!!

    Large boxes do not sell well. And them being stingy with primetrailer shows they are possibly trying to keep the line streamlined to avoid pegwarmers.

    So a 4-5 TFs in 1 box is a poor seller.

    The alternative, limbs and torso in different packages is horrible too. Remember energon distribution? We ended up with billions of torso and no limbs.

    I think both alternatives spell disaster for the line so for the most part I think they will 'skip' it for now.

    Who knows? Until we see constructicon toy protos, we may be seeing a late series combiner, maybe not.

    They should have a combiner where one robot in the combo is just the chin on the larger robot out of spite to the people who do not like the chins.

    I hope they do something else besides the Constructicons. Lets see some Terrorcons or Stunticons or Protectobots or something..

    S250 who released the images of Sentinel, Swoop, Jazz and UM quoted someone getting excited about the g1 characters in Animated went on to add Huffer and Mixmaster to the list of known G1 based characters and considering S250s past record with this kind of info yeah Huffer and Mixmaster seem to be appearing in the show.

    Im hoping that Scrapper and Mixmaster use a SymDock system to form Devestator, while more constructicons would be nice Hasbro dont seem to keen on them and Id rather a 2 piece combiner with each robot having nice modes and a nice combined mode than the kind of rubbish we got with the Energon line.

    Oh okay. Mixmaster could be interesting, as long as the cement barrel doesn't end up as a hand or hanging off the back. It'd be cool if it ends up as shoulder pads, like the Mixmaster drone in the TF Movie game.

    Rick Astley's on the phone.

    He says he's gonna give you up, after reading that comment.


    Sorry - he seems defensive about this sort of thing.

    I doubt we'll ever see 5 piece combiners again, but who knows? You may get one or two that combine with each other..

    No, but think about it ... Armada had no combiners, except the fact that Prime, Jetfire, and Overload all combined. Energon was all combiners ... nothing in Cybertron, except for Prime/Wingsaber ...

    So is it wrong to expect at least one or two 'bots that can combine?
