    War Giant was done fairly well for downsizing Warbotron, the Spirits of the D.E.C was a pleasant surprise and absolutely amazing. So what combiner would you like to see Iron Factory tackle next?

    Personally, I’d like to see them do Menasor. The Racing Bros are so cool and fun to play around with. A downsized version of the Generation Toy Stunticons would be epic.

    Due to my personal biases, I'd much rather get a Lost Light crew first, but if they do another combiner, I agree that it has to be Don Figueroa's Menasor. Knowing IF, they'd manage to make it even better than GTs!

    I have my own preferences too, like the Wreckers and Fort Max. I’d take the Lost Light crew as well. I’d love a fully loaded Skids.

    I'd happily take the Wreckers too, provided it means we get an Overlord 2.0. ;)

    I was literally going to mention an Overlord 2.0. IF have developed so much sine the 1.0 I think they would make an amazing second version.

    I’m a bit of a sucker for the Terrorcons and Feral Rex was a pretty cool combiner too so something like that from IF would be welcome

    I want to see more creativity; so while most of the mainstay combiners would be great, I'm more interested in something more unique or out there. Maybe another entirely new combiner like their DEC. Or more obscure like Road Caesar, Raiden, or some of the micromaster combiners would be cool as well. A samurai version of Magna Boss perhaps? If I had to choose from the mainstays, I'd want to see Defensor I think.

    What I really want to see is an expansion into a few other franchises. For example, there's a big void in the power ranger/ sentai side of things. Give me an Iron Factory Daizyujin please! Or some of the other Megazords, theres so many that need good, articulated figures and Iron Factory would be a great match based on the DEC.

    Would be nice if they do Landcross or any of the Japanese G1 combiners. But the Multiforce will always hold a special place in my heart. If IF could outdo the original and make it so ALL members can be swicthed around in combiner mode(which means all of them can be an arm/leg/chest/hip/vehicle/tophalf/bottomhalf/robot; a Hepta-changer!), even better.

    Edited because I forgot 2 modes.

    I wonder if they too would catch the 3P Menasor Bug going around.

    They'd do a good job with Predaking.

    Predaking would be nice. I always thought that is a killer design and I'd love IF to go after it.
    I really want a good Legends sized Devastator too, and I'm hoping someone else takes a stab at that one. A IF one that's a little more IDW could be great.

    Defensor would be my preference, because he's my favorite combiner, has almost no representation at any scale, and is the counterpart of Bruticus. But if I were to hazard a guess as to which one would be next, I would guess Superion. Superior is the most prominent Autobot combiner, IF has already done two Decepticon combiners, and Superion was pretty front and center in a lot of the IDW stories so would build on that connection as well.

    But I'd be fine with pretty much any of them.

    How about a devestator that utilizes prowl instead? Or that galvatronus from the comic?

    Personally, I thin a wrecker team would be cool. Wrack n ruin as legs, sandstorm and springer as arms, and roadrunner as a body. Or heck wreckage from fan pub! Any other company, New combiners wouldn't be speculation. What I love about Iron factory is the directions they take themselves. How about new primes like chaos raven, like nexus prime?

    I’d love to see what they could do with a Rail Racer...

    Whatever it is I just hope it’s NOT Superion, Defensor, Menasor, or Devastator. So tired of seeing those figures clog up companies’ roadmaps for years on end.

    EDIT: Also Animated Safeguard could be amazing in the IF aesthetic, especially if the combined mode had a neck+ waist swivel (like the combiner wrist on Ocular Max Vortex)
