Based off the Transformers G1 episode "Starscream's Brigade" in which Starscream creates his own soldiers, the Combaticons, who are also a combiner group and they form the powerful Bruticuswww.youtube.com/watch?v=P0TlZ6…
The Combaticons are just plain awesome. In the Cybertron games, they seem more independent from Starscream and seem more loyal to Megatron as they defiled Starscream's orders and were actually quite pleased to Megatron being back.
Here we have(Top Middle) The tactician Onslaught: Believes the key to a mission's success lies in the perfection of its planning. Prefers devising sinister schemes to actual combat, but a relentless, furious fighter when stirred into action. As a missile trailer, Onslaught is capable of launching 6500-mile range photon missiles, each equivalent to 3000 tons of TNT. Accuracy of missiles is hampered by electromagnetic interference.Uses powerful sonic stun gun in robot Mode.
(Top Left) The egotistical Blast Off:Feels literally and figuratively about the other Transformers as he soars through outer space. Aristocratic, aloof -- disguises his long distance loneliness. Cruelly efficient at raining destruction on Earth. Flies at 26,000mph, stays in orbit for 8 months. Shoots powerful X-ray laser to hit target 12,000 miles away.In robot Mode, uses ionic blaster.
(Top Right)The unhinged Vortex:Gives a ride to remember -- in your nightmares! Takes Autobots on dizzying, death-defying flights to scare information out of them. As helicopter, goes 300mph with a range of 1200 miles. Whirls rotor blades to create 200-300 mph wind funnels. uses semi-automatic glue gun.
(Bottom Left) The violent Brawl:Noisy, irritates all nearby. Hair-trigger temper, blusteringly belligerent... a terrifyingly effective warrior. Enormously strong, resistant to most conventional artillery. As tank, goes 45mph, range 600 miles. Turret mounted gun shoots 200lbs TNT-equivalent shells, twin sonic cannon shoots powerful, ear-splitting 300-decibel bursts of concentrated sound energy in stereo. In robot Mode, has 10-Megawatt electron gun.
And (Bottom Right) The con man Swindle:asy-going and good natured, but within him beats the fuel pump of the most greed-driven street hustler. Thrives on wheeling and dealing, works for his own personal material advancement. A one-robot "black market". Uses a scatter blaster that sprays explosive pellets, gyro gun that disrupts Transformers' balance center.
