What, no love for PotP Predaking? Also, Unite Warriors Superion is pretty kick-ass. Wish I had Grand Galvatron. :-(

Looking back, I'm a little disappointed there wasn't at least an honorable mention for any small combiners. Okay, PotP Battletrap didn't exist yet, but between RotF's Legends-class Devastator, TFP's mini-Abominus and the various Mini-Con combiners, I'd think there would've been something that resonated. (I'm leaving the Crash Combiners off this list because I don't think anyone is really impressed by any of them.)

Personally, I'd give Armada Perceptor for cramming some impressive engineering into such a small package. I like Mirror, too, he's nicely poseable and an interesting concept, but his components don't really stand alone as well, particularly apart from Sideways. But the others definitely have their strong points as well, and I'd consider them all worthy topics of conversation, since smaller combiners are usually overshadowed by their larger counterparts.

Looking back at this list, I'm not sure I would change too many things on it. Power of the Primes Abominus would be a contender for the list, and SS Devastator is really looking to be a contender as well.

Also having gotten some smaller dudes, I would put PotP Battletrap and Armada Perceptor up for contention too

Yeah, I'm pretty sure everybody loves Battletrap. I'm kinda disappointed that they didn't upgrade Flywheels/Skytread the same way.

While we're on the subject of the PotP combiners... Is it just me, or is it kinda stupid that Hasbro didn't show that they combined on the actual packaging for the toys?

Not directly, they only had images of combined forms on the side if applicable. Even then, only Battletrap, Dreadwing, Volcanicus and Abominus were explicitly called out on the instructions (Dreadwing only on Blackwing's tho).

Kinda missed the mark there, because who looks at instructions nowadays?
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

- Jelze Bunnycat =:3

Looking for:
- TR Furos and Crashbash (just heads)
- PotP Punch head
- CW Dead End, Brawl, Swindle, Vortex, among others
- Spare PotP Volcanicus hands

Even for people who do look at the instructions, you'll only see them after you've already bought the toy. Since the purpose of the package is to help sell the toy, it would have been nice if they'd devoted some space on the packaging to it beyond a picture on the side that doesn't mean anything unless you already know what it is. This is also true for the SS Constructicons, although at least for them most of the one-sentence bios on the back of the box at leastmention that they combine.

At least that's not as bad as the Titan Masters getting generic card backs, despite having
triple-changing partner vehicle thingies. But that's getting off topic.
