    Like I have mentioned before, I got intrigued by the story of the Magnificent 6 and the combiner potential it has. I immediatelly got ideas in my head of how to create this guy, Stampede included. I found one picture in a forum on Reddit in which the name Magnificus was mentioned (Quote: ... this is a widely accepted fanon combination and called "Magnificus."), although this is already the name of Decepticon that looks like a black Perceptor. But the combiner in this picture consisted of:

    PotP Inferno: torso
    PotP jazz: left arm
    CW Sunstreaker: right arm
    CW Wheeljack: left leg
    CW Prowl: right leg

    I liked this configuration so I have used it myself, with one exeption. Instead of PotP Jazz, I used my own CW based custom Jazz. Although the robot mode of PotP Jazz looks great and alt mode looks okay, I thought the arm mode doesn't match with the others, so I customized a CW Prowl figure with PotP Jazz head. I think this configuration looks much better.

    And as for Stampede, what figure to use for him? He looks like this silver/grey robot with 2 red horns on his head and in his Wiki bio is mentioned: ...transforms into some sort of animal form. Only one figure came to mind: PotP Slug.

    But how can he join the team? I got the idea from Takara Generations Seacons. 6 figures of which 5 combine into the gestalt and the 6th figure transforms into the weapon. The combiner peg can be placed into the PotP hand. So Stampede becomes the gun.

    I have also added a photo of Magnificus together with Firestormer. So here are my first pictures of The Magnificent Six - First Expedition:

    great job ! I did the same thing except used the hammer bull from siege. what's his name? anyway yeah. I am still having loads of fun with my combiners I am hoping to share a few soon. I also thought Magnificus would have been a great name but also thought Magnificor since Magnificus was already taken

    Absolutely brilliant! The Magnificent Six is one of my favourite G1 stories, and I’d been working on a collection of these characters myself, along with a Megadeath custom... Great work on Jazz and Stampede!

    And the story continues. After the first expedition, there was a second expedition to Stanix on Cybertron. 5 of the same members and a new member that replaced Stampede who was killed during the first expedition. And who was this sixth member? Silverbolt, an Aerialbot with already combiner experience. And that got me thinking. So the 'What if' story can be expanded. What if a combiner mode was created (probably started with a technician like Wheeljack and with help from Ratchet), wouldn't he involve Silverbolt for his expertise and experience? And Silverbolt would maybe suggest to be part of the combiner? Maybe not for the main combiner, but for a back up plan (when for example Inferno would get hurt). What would this combiner look like?

    I think the Magnificent 6 would form a team like any other team (Aerialbots, Protectobots, Technobots, etc.) that can merge into a combiner, but will always have a special band of what they had experienced in the past (soul mates?). And with either Inferno or Silverbolt as a torso, would combine in (almost) the same combiner. With the possibility to exchange data because 4 of the 5 members are always the same. I had already mentioned a name before (in the Firestormer thread) which I'm going to use for the alternative combiner gestalt. So besides Magnificus, I now present to you Magnifitron:

    If they had made Jazz that looked like that, I would have gotten him in a minute! Great job!

    I was mislead by the thread title, I thought the combiner included Sky Lynx, since he is Magnificent

    Yeah, I have three out of five of those bots, and I already wrote the bio of my combiner and he's like and what his abilities are from his components.

    Custom Combiner.jpg

    Infernus Maximus:

    This combiner is made from Prowl, Wheeljack, Brawl, Dreadwind and Inferno! they are the last Combiner known to the universe they hail from, due to nearly every sentient being nearly eradicated thanks to Megatron (who also bit the dust as it backfired on him as well.) No combiner was able to survive except for Brawl as the leg component for Bruticus, who for some reason was spared at the last moment, was one of the last few Decepticons alive alongside Dreadwind, who lost his partner Darkwing in the process of a twisted plot that Megatron succeeded executing as it also went too far.

    Prowl, Wheeljack and Inferno, the last three Autobots had also survived the massive extinction event, they met up with the last two Decepticons, and with the technology they reverse engineered from Brawl, they outfitted themselves with Combiner technology, and with their alliance, they merged into the Combiner, Infernus Maximus.

    He is his own being, tired of the war, he found peace, he found himself being the assistant to the native Rhinox of the Axiom Nexus once, traveling between universes, he has also been to the Legends world, and is now an ambassador of the Legends world, the funny thing is, when he split into his core components, they were shocked to find peace in that world, and have lived there, ever since.

    This combiner is no slouch, his durability and combat abilities are compared to his individual component's abilities, Prowl's quick thinking allows him to outmaneuver his opponents, Brawl's immense strength and power allows him to grab and throw objects at an impressive rate, Wheeljack's creative thinking allows him to think creatively, in short, he can think outside the box, Dreadwing's near immunity to pain makes him nearly invincible to almost any kind of attack, and finally Inferno's strong determination, cautiousness, heat resistant body & ability to put out fires and think before acting makes him fairly resistant to fire and make decisions, however, his size prevents him from getting into smaller areas, but makes up for it by rushing to anyone's aid.

    He can be tempered if he's pushed past the point of rational thinking, he will start overreacting, and won't calm down until it's too late, he'll blame himself for overreacting, if not that, he will take the blame for not listening, he is a good sort, but doesn't like being teased or picked on for how slow he is in movement, thankfully, he hasn't been teased or picked on, yet.

    I forgot to mention that I had to edit the bio to include his name.
