I've been wanting updated versions of these, just seeing everyone elses thoughs.
Inclined to agree. Hopefully this is something Hasbro will address in their 2015 'combiners' plan?
Personally though, I'd be happy even if they didn't combine.
Technically we already have namesakes that don't combine and even a cohesive team that doesn't combine. Though most of them have been exclusives. We've had the Botcon Animated set, TFSS Breakdown, Legends Motormaster(breath), TFP Dead End, Construct-Bots Dead End and Breakdown, and the kreo set. In terms of something along the lines of Hasbro's new gestalts: yes. Big time.
The problem there is that, aside from the Botcon 2011 set, and the Kre-O set, none of those form a complete team in the same aesthetic or relative size classes.
Also, you forgot Universe Drag Strip and Arms Micron Wildrider
I knew I was leaving one or two out.
Its time for the whole team to get some love...but i'm another who doesn't mind if they don't combine...
Are you going to buy them for us?
We might see something in the 2015 generations assortment. And thanks to the Superion silhouette, that's not just wishful thinking speaking.
I have the TFSS Breakdown, Universe Limited Edition Drag Strip, and Henkei Wildrider. However, I need to put Wildrider with my Black Repaint Dark Army. So I'm down for a new set. Definitely a new Wildrider and Dead End.
It would be nice but technically they did the Botcon Exclusives and the Power Core Combiner one.
I hope they focus on some that haven't got anything not Bruticus and Devastator I understand why they do that though.
I want Computron or Monstructor and even though he's not US that train combiner could look awesome.
I would honestly have a set of Commander/Legends class figure with a Deluxe middle instead of having an ungainly all deluxe with a voyager or deluxe middle.
Can anyone link me to a video or something where they talk about the combiner year I tried finding it but it seems to have gotten buried in all the coverage.
Agreed. I do have a custom painted Motormaster, Universe Drag Strip, TFCC/TFSS Breakdown (currently in my PoL), and kitbashed Takara Arms Micron Wildrider to be slightly taller so he fits better with Classics (I plan to give him a nose too eventually ) but that just leaves a decent Dead End stand-in.
I wouldn't mind getting a cohesive team of Stunticons in the Generations line but I have a feeling they'd be short (smaller molds coming from Hasbro these days) and if they combined, MM would wind up a too-small Deluxe figure and Menasor would look too much like FoC Bruticus proportions and articulation wise, requiring a new 3P torso bot and upgrade kit to look halfway decent.
Yep hope their worth the wait. The original motor master was my second favorite tf right behind op
We have got two "Dead Ends" recently between prime and Constructbots in that crazy yellow/green color scheme. Stuff like that makes me worry. On the bright side, everyone else seems to be normal colors when they pop up.
Since Superion looks like a given, I highly suspect a Menasor to compliment it from Hasbro.
As much as I like dark energon zombie / Jamaican flag Dead End (especially his RID iteration), his crazy color scheme reminds me of Bludgeon or Banzaitron rather than G1 Dead End (dark red or maroon sports car with the gold/white stripe).
Did we find out what scale the limbs for superion were?
I hope the Stunticons are one of the first teams updated if next years theme is Combiners. The Aerialbots and Constructicons and Combaticons always seem to be the favorites to update. It is time for the Stunticons and Protectobots to see some love.
