    This is not a who makes the best combiner poll.

    All things being Equal which size of combiners do you want? The sizes are based off of the limbs, not the center/core bot.

    ALways had a running hypothesis that limb bots for combiners should be about deluxe scale. Will be interesting to see how this works out.

    Thought most people care about the size based of the combined form?

    Anyway, for me it depends on the combiner team. I'm not one of those that like all their combiner the same size.

    My dream is for the glass ceiling to be broken someday with G1 combiners in a MP scale & style. Which would be nothing less than twice the size of MP-10 Optimus Prime with a at least 3 inch head for a fully proportioned gestalt modernized in G1 show accuracy.

    i voted for " Freakin Larger than the above^ "

    personal opinion, no point being a combiner if you cant be bigger than most of the other tfs. now that we're getting taller transformers like kronos and dinobots, combiners need to step up to the next level.

    I voted larger because I want MP combiners.

    No, Warbotron/MMC combiners are NOT MP scale.

    I dunno if an "MP combiner" is really even possible. "MP" basically means "cartoon accurate" and the cartoon combiners were all over the place size wise. I don't think it's possible to make an cartoon accurate combiner whose component parts aren't vastly over sized.

    Leo Dux is only a smidge shorter than MP 10 already...

    To be fair it is a generous "smidge".

    A mass shifting combiner that fits whatever scene I was trying to reproduce.

    Classics style Voyager limbs on an Ultra core. (Mainly just want a return to more Ultra class figures period.)

    Warbotron size is the best for Masterpiece I think.

    Unlike that set, the G1 toy & in the cartoon the Preds are all basically the same size. But you would think a Rhino & a Buffalo are bigger than a LION. But yes, he is up to his chest but could be a hair taller in MP scale. But that MMC design calls for to many reductions & the proportions would need to be vastly adjusted as well. You went with the hardest to make combiner, but I would do that last if I was a 3P but I think it is possible. The 3 MP 3rd parties I like are magicians. BUt I would go with the six others before I got to the Preds/P-King.

    It's possible if they try to do the best to get as close as possible to it. There are examples, so never say never.

    I want as close to MP size as possible & cartoon accurate as possible. Of course that means the individual members measured against MP-10. Combined forms always grew larger.

    G1 Razorclaw is supposed to be about the same size as Kup:

    Kup is considerably smaller than Prime. Basically people just want combiners that fit some preconceived notion of size in their own head, there's no real point discussing it as it's totally subjective :p

    I wish all were Masterpiece scale, which to me should be all in scale with each other in alt mode, and as close to as tall/big as depicted in the G1 cartoon as possible with that limitation.

    Exception for non-vehicles, of course. Those can be based on bot size.

    Oh, and based on the current prices we pay… I think they should already be that sized.

    MP-10 is the scale benchmark for everything I collect now so combiners have to scale accordingly. This means that the Constructicons have to stand roughly shoulder to shoulder with MP-13.

    unaware of the scale charts?

    Razorclaw is just shorter than Galvatron/Prime.

    want them larger than warbotron's and G1 or as close to g1 as possible that fits in with the takara mps... everything to me so far has not hit that for me ..warbotron are almost hitting it but still not quite there for me

    would love fanstoys to tackle a combiner as they know the score
