Combiner Speculation

Well it would seem that Hasbro is getting their money's worth out of the FOC Bruticus molds. Which makes me wonder if perhaps we'll be seeing another combiner in the near future? and one particular thought keeps coming to mind, it concerns the Ruination redeco of Bruticus. personally I really dig the opposite faction redeco and kinda hope Hasbro keeps the trend going with any future combiners. as such I send the following challenge out to you folks who would you redeco/retool the existing combiner teams into?

-edit:You guys have thrown out some great ideas so far the ones I like the most are-

Devastator-Build King
Scrapper-Scoop
Mixmaster-Quickmix
Longhaul-Landfill
Hook-Hightower
Bonecrusher-Wedge
Scavenger-new character maybe a femme?

Menasor-still unnamed
Motormaster-RID Ultra Magnus
Drag Strip-RID Mirage
Breakdown-Wars
Deadend-Crosswise
Wildrider-Rev

Predaking-Neo Magnaboss
Razorclaw-Lioconvoy
Rampage-Tigatron
Divebomb-Airazor
Headstrong-Rhinox
Tantrum-Longhorn

Abominus-unnamed monsterbot combiner
Hunn Gurr-Doublecross
Blot-Repugnus
Cuttroat-Sundor
Rippersnapper-Grotusque
Sinnertwin-Bantor

Piranacon as either BW2 God Neptune or in Funpub deco

Computron-Pretender combiner
Scattorshot-Bomb Burst
Strafe-Bugly
Afterburner-Iguanus
Lightspeed-Roadblock
Nosecone-Stranglehold

Defensor-Crackdown
Hotspot-Smolder
Streetwise-Barricade
Blades-Hatchet
Groove-Crowbar
First Aid-Crankcase

Superion-Skyscorcher
Silverbolt-Vanquish
Airraid-Windrazor
Fireflight-Aferburner
Slingshot-Eagle Eye
Skydive-Terradive

and that pretty much leaves Raiden, Landcross, and Liokaizer open to ideas.....
I make Youtube reviews, they are slowly getting better, please Rate, Comment, and Subscribe folks

Depends on sales and customer insight reaction. To which we will never know. But It will depend on characters that will show up in TF4 and they do take notice of what 3rd parties are knockout. I'd guess at menasor ( as there is a race car theme in TF4) and Defensor as its not been tackled yet

Corrected. Although technically speaking Puzzler was a 6 man team all composed of car alt-modes

Raiden - Railracer. Actually Hasbro would probably just name a train gestalt Railracer in the first place.

Piranacon - King Poseidon

Monstructor - Dinoking

Menasor - Autobots from "Masquerade" done as Menasor in the colors of the corresponding Autobot - Motormaster in Optimus colors etc.

If they do, I just hope they learn from their mistakes with Bruticus. Mostly the bad arm situation.

Well if they made enough combiners in scramble city style they could mix n match limbs for potential new combiners.

Also, lets say all combiners are made with the option of having two figures form the body (Devestator) or one torso member as most other combiners then there'd be alot more interchangeability.

And alot of combiners could be done as first time gobots combiners or maybe that'd be where the mixing & matching for redecoes would come in.

I like @Edgewise choices, I'd also like to see Menasor > Renegade Puzzler utilizing a proposed option of having two bots replace one as the torso, Menasor > Gaurdian Combiner with Staks as leader/torso bot, Superion > Renegade Combiner with Snoop as leader/torso bot, Predaking > BW Combiner with Stampede joining Leo Prime, Tigatron, Airazor & Rhinox and if Headmasters got a combiner redeco or retooling I'd like Cerebos as the leader/torso bot and for Highbrow to be a retooling of an existing helicopter but just my thoughts.

I hate to say it but I'm done with Hasbro combiners if FoC Bruticus is their idea of a good combiner. After getting bit by the 3P Combiner bug, it's hard to go back. I'd be down for any combiners Hasbro does as long as they are **NOT** Scramble City and they **DO** partsform. I think FoC Bruticus suffered tremendously for those reasons. ANY 3rd Party combiner looks lightyears better than FoC Bruticus because they partsform allowing for better proportioned limbs. Likewise, having a core bot bigger than the rest of 'em does wonders for the proportions of the combined form.

**IF** Hasbro did learn from the mistakes of FoC Bruticus and allowed for non scramble city and parts forming combiners, I'd like to see a new Seacons team, as well as new Protectobots. Hell, even another Superion would be great too.

While I'm madly in love with the Decepticon Defensor idea, I think the Headmasters would be better suited as a repaint/remold of Bruticus. I brought it up a long time ago, and Vangelus also mentioned it in a different thread.

Onslaught-Cerebros/Fortress
Swindle-Chromedome
Blast-off-Brainstorm
Brawl-Hardhead
Vortex-Highbrow

I think this would work great, and name the combiner Fortress Maximus or Grand Maximus. Whatever. This needs done immediately.
