    Ok imagine the situation...You're Optimus Prime/Rodimus or Megatron/Galvatron and you have to take six members into battle with you,who would you take? For the Autobots I would take all five Dinobots because they're pretty unstoppable when they get going and also Omega Supreme because.....well because it's Omega Supreme lol...I think that would be a pretty formidable Autobot team.As for the Decepticons I would take the havoc wreaking Combaticons because they have the added bonus of forming the almighty Bruticus and I'd take Sixshot too because he'd have six ways to attack you...that Decepticon team would do a hell of a lot of damage imo.I based my answers on G1 purely because I love that era but you can choose any team from any era you want...What would be your choices?? :)

    As G1 Optimus I would take:
    Ultra Magnus because convoys roll together!
    Fortress Maximus (actually does this count as 3?)
    Metroplex
    Omega Supreme
    Skylynx
    Jetfire

    As G1 Galvatron I would take
    Cyclonus
    Scourge
    Blitzwing
    Sixshot
    Trypticon
    Scorponok

    That would be an epic battle

    If I was Optimus Prime, the six Autobots I'd take into battle would be highly dependent on the situation.

    Am I trying to stop the 'Cons attacking an offshore oil rig? Am I rescuing an Autobot POW in the desert? Am I chasing Decepticons through space?

    though in all reality, megatron would bring six gestalts and make the claim that a single gestalt is but 1 robot, despite being comprised of 5 robots, they are combined as 1. should optimus be fool hardy enough to fall for this agreeing that should they stay combined, then they fall in terms with the terms of engagement. then of coarse megatron agrees to this, and predictably has them dettach and attack the autobots en mass. optimus would of coarse be shocked megatron didnt keep his word yet, have a fail safe in such an event. such is the magic of G1 sunbow ...
