Some of my favorite Transformers have been the combiners (Devastator(G1), Superion Maximus, Bruticus maximus to name a few) but there have always been a problem with them. The biggest, especially with all the G1 combiners, was the fact that you needed accessories to complete the combination. Accessories that had no other purpose in any other mode. Then the "maximus" versions finally had those accessories useable in the other forms (though they made poor hands and feet for the combined mode - as well as odd looking accessories for the individuals - but still they were usable in all modes).
So now we finally get one has decent - built in hands and accessories that look decent on all modes!
Also - a big plus for me, is the the connecting joints are much more secure than pervious combiners - even the "maximus" ones.
And finally the last big plus for me is that all the individual robots are the same size with each other. That is something that always drove me crazy in every...
