What an oddity, the Power Core Combiners line. A bookend between HFTD and DOTM, a constant companion to Generations, and the first new mold combiners and Mini-Cons in years. Some hate them, others can't get enough of them, and the British get offended by them. The question trasversing my head is the place these new-age combiners have in your collection. With a blend of Movie and G1 aesthetics, a sprinkling of Armada and Energon combination techniques, and a tenuously established position in the Movie universe, are they ever in one display? Classics? Energon? Mini-Cons adorning your Armada chaps? Myself, I've never gotten my hands on a proper Bruticus. Luckily, the Bombshock and Combaticons set provides a nice stand-in as a big robot, excepting the obvious inaccuracies. However, Mudslinger fits more into the Movie aesthetic, and stands defending my junk pile of Movie parts now.
