Here is the pictorial review for the upcoming Powercore Combiners series, or PCC, Decepticon Smolder and minicon Chopster! So I will keep this short, some will like these, others will hate it. This line is definitely, like most other TF's lines are for the kiddies. Easy transformation of the basic sized figure and easily attaching drones that transform into legs and arms. Some people will not like the fact that the drones have no robot modes but I kind of like the fact this is a different take in a sense with the whole combiner idea, kind of like ROTF supreme Devastator, or Armada Prime. There is a lot of playability here and great ways to use your imagination. The minicon Chopster has a few different ways you can transform and pose how you feel like. The minicons have 4 modes. 1. Weapon mode. 2. Vehicle weapon mode. 3. Robot mode and 4. Power-up armor. The following pics will showcase how the minicon can be used and posed as well as some of the combaticon drones, which to me do not look good on Smolder so I am sure down the road there will be a set that makes more sense with him. Chopster This little guy is neat. Works a gun on the truck and an axe with Smolder or shoulder canon. One thing you will notice is that the official bot mode has his legs forward with the axe sides as his shins. I personally like the look of them backwards so I switched the legs and allows for a better setting when in gun mode on top of the truck. But to each their own which is why this is a neat little minicon. He has Gatling gun styled arms with a face that has a monical, scoped eye appearance. Correct feet: Switched feet: Also notice with them turned around the bottoms actually look like forward feet: That's it for Chopster on his own so lets see him with Smolder. Smolder Smolder is the base of the combiner teams. He is about a little taller than a basic and a shy short than a deluxe. He is a red firetruck, which is interesting for a Decepticon. Chopster can be placed on top in alt.mode for added fire power. You can place Chopster in a few different poses on Smolders alt. mode such as the gun and even axe mode. Bot mode: Here is Smolder in bot mode. Has lots of great pose-ability and interactions with Chopster here. Smolders alt. head for when combined can even be used in this mode. I like the idea of when he is using his minicon as a weapon he goes into a power type mode and changes to a battle masked type styled head. Combiner mode: Here is Smolder with some drones. This is just to give you and idea of how they work and size comparisons. This is also the mode you will use your minicon(s) for the power up armor mode. Chopster can be posed a few different ways here as well.
