    I guess I spoke too soon on your other review. Searchlight looks pretty good, though I'm not sure if I'll buy it as of right now. Combined form is so-so :/

    Thanks Peaugh :) 

    So Awesome !!!

    It seems that, I have underestimated the Powercore Combiners until I saw these video reviews.

    I like 'em ;)

    I was thinking the same thing about the combined head, it kinda looks like Ultra Magnus

    Thanks for the reviews, Peaugh. The Mini-Con and both torso figures look pretty good. I think I might go completionist for the 2-packs, but will just decide on one PCC 5-pack that I think looks best. (I wouldn't mind if Takara used these molds to dust off the Micron Booster line either :) )

    By the way, was this the Gobot you were looking for years ago?

    This guy is probably my favorite of the autobots we've seen so far.

    He reminds me of Highbrow for some reason.

    edit: Backwind reminds me of the ape disc animal from Kamen Rider Hibiki.

    Searchlight is my current favorite as well of the PCC bots we've seen, although that may be because that horid AllSpark Blue actually works with his colorscheme:lol 

    Still, bot mode looks good, and the fact his rotors are removeable does open up the idea that you could mix 'n match rotor sets (as in make both rotors have three or four blades each by swaping with another figure). Backwind is meh, although as a gun he's pretty neat I must say.

    I'm still waiting to see what Huffer and Caliburst are like, though.

    This line is actually looking pretty cool I have to admit. If the drones had robot modes it would be damn near perfect.

    I remember getting all of those. Amazing how I considered extending at the waist a "transformation" lol.

    It's uploaded. Still processing. Taking a little longer since it's a longer video with the free Smolder giveaway contest. I'm constantly refreshing youtube, so as soon as it's live, I'll post it. I've already got the post ready to go, just waiting for the vid to go live to press "submit."

    AAAND no sooner had I posted that then the video went live. Check it out here:
