    Not the whole team, but certain individual members. We've had Swindle in Animated, Onslaught in Universe, and Dragstrip in Classics.

    Plus Dead End, DeceptidragStrip and Swindle in Alternators. HotSpot(zone?) in the Titanium line. Plus a few others but there has never been an entire team until now that doesn't combine.

    Are people really this dense?

    There are no major retools outside of heads to these molds. Second of all, none of the molds were even meant to combine in the first place as they represent other characters entirely. Third, combiners don't exist in Animated save for the Jet Twins, who are also the only flying Autobots. Forth, these would be hundreds of dollars more expensive if they did.

    Geez. Use your heads a little people.

    They don't. You can stop hoping. It's 100% true that these toys will not combine.

    Couldn't sh002 be hoping they combine in fiction?

    I hope the fiction acknowledges that ... even if it's in the last page after the Stunticons are defeated and they're being rebuilt with Menasor in mind (think a schematic in a screen on your mad scientist of choice's lab).

    to all the combining hubbub, DJW stated on WTF@TFW that he's big on teams being characterized as individuals (hence swindle being a solo show). He doesn't want people to see the Stunticons and just say "where's menasor". It's about developing each character individually, something I think has been done perfectly with this set. I never bothered to learn each individual stunticon's name. Prior to this, i just thought of them as either stunticons or menasor. But now, i know all of them, and care about them individually when I see them in comics or the G1 cartoon.

    I'm with him, I'm not too big on combiners anyway.

    The only ones I actually LIKE are Defensor and Predaking, and even still, I prefer the team made of individuals instead of "the gestalt pieces".

    i think djw said that the image in the generations book has nothing to do with the botcon set.

    it's been confirmed that one of the souvenir figures will be the mysterious officer 800-12 that will be featured in the botcon comic this year.
