    Here's my idea:

    Torso: Black Lion
    Right arm: Red Lion
    Left arm: Green Lion
    Right leg: Blue Lion
    Left leg: Yellow Lion ;)

    That's exactly my point. The Decepticons have always had the combiner advantage. It's like an obsession of theirs. Swerve even said "Decepticons are obsessed with combining. Put two of 'em in a room and within seconds one will be standing on the other's shoulders. Fact." It would be bizarre to not have another Decepticon combiner. Especially since the last fanmade thing was an Autobot.

    The Autobots have always had the giant robot advantage, the Decepticons always had the combining advantage.

    If its a team of all fembots, I'll want them to be Decepticons, cause the Cons need more ladybots on their team.

    But just a Combiner in general? Autobot.

    My vote would be for a Cassette-bot combiner. Not like Slamdance or Squawkbox. I mean like five or six of them. Cars, animals....aliens. That is one combiner that hasn't been made.

    Ugh, ANOTHER Autobot combiner? They already have Superion. It's always "Autobot combiner, Autobot combiner, Autobot combiner" with this fandom.

    Fucking ACJWs

    Mind you, considering the Decepticons have 3 before the Combiner Wars even start up in the IDW continuity, and the Autobots know this and are trying to keep up, another Autobot one still won't even things out. Especially as there's not going to be a Computron in this universe (due to casualties), and probably not a Defensor for that matter (due to most being on the Lost Light, and MtMtE not being involved in Combiner Wars).

    So with the Autobots just having Superion, and the Optimus one (which is likely temporary at that), the Decepticons seem likely to have the edge even before the fan one gets added. We could be looking at, say, 4:3 in the final numbers or similar.

    Well, I voted for the female Autobot jet last time, so I'd probably vote for a male Decepticon watercraft Combiner this time.

    I want it to be a Decepticon simply because Autobots generall|y outnumber them character wise. Should vote for a theme we don't have or isn't common. (But not trains, Raiden's got that covered)

    I want a combiner made up of old beaters. Like a Gremlin, a Pinto, Al Bundy's Dodge, a Chevy Luv, and a nice wood paneled station wagon.

    Wow, I'm just laughing at some of these comments against an all-female transformer combiner. It's like there are all-male transformer combiners like the constructions, aerialbots, stunticons, and the Dinobots. Yet... people ask for an all-female transformer combiner and suddenly, it's wrong?

    All-female transformer combiner all the way here.

    Hm, least common would be Decepticon female watercraft*?


    .... I could go with that.



    *Or what else hasn't been done with combiners? Fliers is Superion, beasts is Predacons, trains is Raiden, builders is Devastator *and* Landfill....

    I didn't mean it at all like that. It's just that most of the time, there have always been more Decepticon combiners. And in most fiction, combiners are portrayed as freaks of nature, or monsters who can barely function. That's much more fitting for a Decepticon, than an Autobot. As I said, the Autobots have their giants, the Decepticons have their combiners. That's just how things have been.

    And so far, with what we know from listings, the Autobots currently outnumber the Decepticons, as they have Ultra Prime and the autobots from the Walmart listing, Superion, and now Defensor, while the Decepticons just have Menasor and Devastator that we know of, and there has been no word on Bruticus or anyone like that.
