Do you think PCC limbs are separate from CORE molds

    that's what i'm really wondering... as of right now, we've got 10 CORE figures, and 4 sets of limbs... i'm wondering if there's a possibility of an Icepick repaint being shipped with the limbs to the destructicons... or any other combinations... cuz i know i'm going to swap and mix limbs all the time, and having different molds with different limbs seems like a great plan...

    also, i'm wondering how many different combinations will be possible... bombshock, skyburst, mudslinger and doubleclutch each have 4 different configurations right out of the box, then if you start swapping and mixing limbs and cores it keeps going... i know there's probably some mathematical formula i'm missing that would show how many configurations there are, i just don't know...

    If that can be done, then a black Huffer repaint with Decepticon Rallybot repaints named Menasor please.

    If not, black Huffer repaint please and I'll just have him steal Double Clutch's Rallybots. Menasor will live again!

    I'm loving the sound of any larger toy being able to form the torso, though. Opens up a ton of possibilities. I think I'll have a lot of fun with this line, outside of Straxus it's what I'm most excited about from the new toys.

    yeah, i really hope they're all independent of each other... it'd be awesome to get some mixed and match... swap a helicopter from skyburst and put it on bombshock, ah, i just can't wait... this line is gonna be fun... and especially if there's more then these first two waves...

    From what I actually did read in the ToyFair 2010 thread ( the one with 38+ pages) it does sound like the "drones" are independent and interchangeable. Never was a big fan of Energon Prime, but this may be a different story. If this is true, I do have high expectations for a future wave of PCC combiners repainted in G1 Menasor fashion. First time saying this: Yay for repaints! Also this might a simple DIY, with no heavy Radicon modifications.

    Usually to keep costs down they'll mold them all together. But I gotta agree, rallybots + a huffer repaint would be fantastic.

    Hope we see a Defensor style 5 pack

    yeah, that's kinda what i'm thinking is happening is all the sets are molded together and the smaller scouts have their minicons on the same mold... and yeah, i hope we see at least two more waves of new molds... i'd love a Hotspot with some protectobot limbs...

    I don't know, but these sets look like they have a lot of play value. They just look fun.

    Do those that come with drones able to have Mini-Cons while in vehicle mode?

    When it comes to repaints, I would like those partnered with Mini-Cons to be now partnered with brand new drones and vice versa; those with drones originally would get brand new Mini-Cons.

    Or sometimes a Mini-Con or drones would be repainted and given a new partner. A repaint of the Combaticons for example perhaps as Autobots but with a new Transformer replacing Bombshock.

    A straight repaint of a Transformer with the same Mini-Con and Drones would be quite boring IMO (except understandable for store exclusives since they usually don't get new molds created for them).

    Hopefully Hasbro planned ahead and put the drones on separate molds from the main bot so they could mix them up by giving us something like Menasor later. The minicon with Huffer could be the chest plate for the combined mode since we were told they become armor.

    I am very hopeful for the Stunticon and Protectobot repaint s that may come.

    that'd be cool... i'm really curious to see how things are put together when the repaints come out...

    that would be real nice if they thought about that...

    yeah, me too... seems like there's enough different drones that it could happen... guess if hasbro doesn't do that i may have to do my own repaints...
