I am really impressed with the WFC line. Anyone know there are plans for devastator or any other combiners?

Probably not, as we just got through with them in the previous trilogy.

However, I do think it's a perfect opportunity to release a smaller scaled Devastator, made of 6 deluxes instead of 6 voyagers to scale better with the other combiners. I'd buy that.

There is actually a really good Undersized KO of CW Devastator, that is exactly that (as 6 deluxes instead of 6 voyagers). I was hoping they, or another company would do a Predaking in the same fashion. He ends up being just a head taller than the other CW/PoTP Combiners, but scales much better. An official one would be nice but I dont see it happening... I wouldn't mind seeing NEW combiners in ER or the 3rd part of the trilogy (Raiden, Road Caesar, Landcross, Monstructor or Dinoking etc...), but I seriously doubt it. I would think that if any more new combiners were to come forth, it would probably be through the Selects line as we have seen with King Poseidon and God Neptune.
I am very much interested in Botcon 2016 Customization Class Medix, Shattered Glass Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, and Marvel Comic Ratchet, willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

Yeah, I've seen that and was considering getting it, but I wasn't sure. I still might, if the reviews are positive. The big problem with KOs in my experience is that they don't stay tabbed together. It's bad enough with a single figure, I can't imagine being better with a combiner.

I agree 100%. I remember getting some of the G1 KO combiners from a decade or so ago and having the Raiden one literally crumble in my hands as I tried to combine it. (worst $10 bucks I ever spent) ;) .

Anyway, the Taikongzhans *not* "Devastator" is actually pretty decent, I haven't had any problems with it, and there are a couple of nice reviews on Youtube. It is literally the ONLY KO own at present, and only one I plan to, unless of course my hope comes to fruition and they do Predaking at a smaller scale. Although another company did a full size KO Predaking, that is also getting good reviews, but I have no reason to get a cheaper version of the official Hasbro one that is the same size.

Don't think we'll see the classic ones, since they were already released not so many years ago in the Combiner Wars, and they're using the same technology even for the most recent ones we got on Power of the Primes and Generations Selects.
If we're getting something, it will be probably some of the missing ones (Road Cesar or an appropriate LeoKaiser, to make some examples) or a reprint of the CW ones.

Actually I hope they will give us an updated Team Bullet Train from Car Robots, even if the original figures are very solid.
