    Keeping it a Decepticon Gestalt, mind you.

    Repaint the five jets as Needlenose, Misfire, Triggerhappy, Darkwing, and Dreadwind and call the combined form Dreadwing.

    No.

    Skyquake, Skydive, Falcon, Snare and Talon

    or

    Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp, Sunstorm and Acid Storm.

    That's not a silly redeco idea, this is a silly redeco idea:
    Optimus Prime
    Jazz
    Ratchet
    Ironhide
    Bumblebee

    They combine to form:

    What the Hell were we thinking.

    (But all of the redeco ideas before mine are great)

    Cool. You idea is similar to when Hasbro repainted the Bruticus combiners into the Wreckers

    Would totally dig some more-obscure Decepticons as repaints.

    Just give me Classics Needlenose already.

    But not Snapdragon or Apeface. Those deserve entirely new molds. Ultra class, Hasbro.

    Dream, Hasbro. Dream hard.

    I don't think I would even want to combine them. That would be great to get those guys as repaints with new heads. Like the FOC wreckers.

    But I would also rather get that sort of thing after we get more actual combiners

    Surprised we haven't really seen a sixwing or micromaster air patrol inspired repaint of superion yet (though we did get the opposite).

    Personally, I wouldn't want to see has/taktom try to "update" either of the horrorcons. I'm not sure they would make a toy that's worthy to be an update/homage to either of the greatness that is Snapdragon and Apeface.
    It's just too risky.

    This! Do it HasTak! All we need is for them to appear as a group in MTMTE to reinvigor commercial interest...

    They were in Last Stand of the Wreckers. They're dead, Jim.

    He hasn't, he's included them both in the same roster.

    I would love a Decepticon repaint of Superion with classic G1 jet or Sixwing repaints as long as the individual robot modes don't suffer working in the combining gimmick like the FoC Combaticons did. Also, love the G2 repaint idea as well.

    Superion & Menasor seem like top candidates for trying new combiners, and opposite faction repaints are then obvious, but I think they might also mix it up with a few new limb molds to not have soooo many repainted figures on shelves... and they'd serve as "pre-molds" for later combiners too...

    Autobot Combiner: "Omega Prime"
    -Optimus Prime (remold of Motormaster)
    -Mirage (remold of Dragstrip)
    -Hound ("pre-mold" of Swindle)
    -Jazz (remold of Dead End)
    -Ironhide ("pre-mold" of First Aid)

    Decepticon Combiner: "Gigatron"
    -Skywarp (remold of Silverbolt)
    -Dreadwind (remold of Skydive)
    -Darkwind(Darkwing) (remold of Air Raid)
    -Spinister ("pre-mold" of Vortex/Blades)
    -Quake ("pre-mold" of Brawl)

    How about as Energon Superion Maximus?

    It was worth a shot.
