    some of the coolest transformers and transformers toys are combiners. One of my favorite is g1 menasor (Don't own him but looks sick for an 80's toy) I also like Bruticus although his g1 mold wasn't so good. So what in your opinion is the best transformers combiner ever!

    Tripredacus. I like the insect theme of the set, the posability, the way the 3 members blended together, that it's a beast combiner, and how menacing the combined mode looks.

    Does Universe/RotF Bruticus with FansProject add-ons count?

    this needs a poll :D 

    top 9 and then "other"..unless more than 10 is cool?

    anyway, mine has been, and always will be Devastator...

    i grew up loving construction vehicles...i lived on a dirt road so there was always a grader leveling it off...then eventually they paved it, so there were even MORE types of equipment around...

    and before i was ever into Transformers, i loved my Tonka trucks for that ^ reason...then i got into hot wheels and my dad bought me these really cool 1:64th construction trucks that were PERFECTLY scaled to the Hot Wheels/Matchbox i had...

    then came TFs, and i fell madly in love with the Constructicons...sadly, i never owned them...with 6 kids in my family, that was a toy that was out of my reach...but i had a friend who did have Devastator and i longed for it...

    so to say that TFCs Hercules is a dream come true for me is an understatement...

    Flywheels


    ... Duocons combine, so they count, right? If not, then I'm gonna scrap the haters & mention Bombshock & his new age Combaticons.

    Devastator always has been and always will be my favorite combiner. Hands down.

    You know to be honest, Devastator itself has been overdone so much that I've started liking the individual bots better than their combined form, especially when it comes to Scrapper, Mixmaster & Bonecrusher who were my favorites from the beginning.

    I guess that's one of the reasons behind why Devastator gained so much love, as it was more than just a big bot of randoms like some of the others were, or at least appeared to be in the tv show.

    I love all combiners, especially all of the G1 combiners. But I have to choose Devastator as my favorite since I had him as a kid, and I specifically remember riding my bike to the local card store near my house growing up every time I had enough money (like $5-$6 bucks, lol) to buy a new constructicon. I couldn't wait to finish him and when i did, it was pure awesomeness :D

    Toys? ROTF Bruticus w/ Fansproject add-ons (not like there's much competition, anyway). I really liked Menasor and the Stunticons in the G1 cartoon though.

    I pretty much like all combiners though, with the exception of the Protectobots. I just find them bland and other than First Aid, they don't seem to have any real distinction that makes them special. Ratchet, Inferno, Prowl, and Red Alert could do all the shit they do.

    At least from a toy standpoint, Predaking.

    FansProject Combat Unit Colossus. Nuff Said. Was the old school G1 Bruticus (got all the myriad repaints of him too) before the Colossus. But my god man, FansProject got that thing spot on. It's beautiful. Nuff Said.
