Everybody's favourite robots in disguise... GOBOTS! Just kidding.

I'm so looking forward to having all five of these. Right now I have Blast Off and Brawl, but I have Vortex and Swindle on the way.

For now I have Blast Off and Brawl displayed with Universe Onslaught.

Wow Olds I didn't know you were so into bots like that bro.

I do like the size and overall shape (one big bot) of the new Warbotron Bruticus, but I think the figure is over saturated with too much industrial details to mix well with the other 3rd party combiners. Even so, it's still one BAMF. I like it over the fanspro but I'm gonna wait to see if any other designers are going to take a crack at it.

Man, this is one of the most badass looking third party gestalts I've seen. I'm really looking forward to updating my G1 collection and the combiners were always a favourite of mine.

Agreed :smgrin: I really don't get why they can't designs similar to these for the movies. Bay-formers robots look like piles of junk from a salvage yard got up and started walking around.

Yeah that use to be the main thing that collected before getting into 6" scale action figures.

I agree that the tech detailing could have been dialed back a bit, and it can get a little too busy looking. Master Mind Creations has probably made the best 3rd party combiner with their Feral Rex (Predaking). But it looks like they are shifting to IDW based characters for future releases instead of making new combiners. But on day I would love to see MMC take on Sky Lynx to setup next to Feral Rex.

Yeah I always loved the combiners when I was younger along with the Dinobots. I always thought it would be cool if the Dinobots could combine. The Dinobots on their own could hold their own with a combiner and I thought how badass if they could combine. Well two 3rd Party companies are doing just that ToyWorld and GCreation.

And the even bigger GCreation - Shuraking. This one is going to be pretty close to 2 feet tall.

If I was going to get either of those two sets it would be GCreation's Shuraking due to the shear size of that beast. But at the moment I'm not planning either because I'm already buying the 3rd party Masterpiece Dinobots.

These look so incredible. I kinda like the super detailing on them. I think they would make for better individual figures. If it's one thing that combiners kind of lacked in was the detailing on the individual figures when they were not combined. I think his makes every piece better value and gives them more personality. I always felt like you could tell when a figure was a combiner because it kinda lacked in the detail department but this remedies that. :halgrin:

Frickin' look at the size of that thing! Sheesh! Wonder how it compares to Feral Rex or Hercules?

That Dinobot combiner looks pretty sick! I remember awhile back, there was either a digital mock up or a actual custom of a Dinobot combiner called Extinction. Don't know much of it, but I thought it looked just as good if not better.
