    Actually not bad. The combined form is a mess, but individually Smolder and Chopster look good.

    Love this dude's head. Both of them. I'm surprised how much of an improvement it makes when you attach Chopster to the combined mode.

    Actually, I've found a better combined mode. If you look at the yellow on his left shoulder in the first pic, you can see how those two pieces are angled to fit together properly. They don't go together in any other mode. Also, the bluish arrow on the right shoulder is pointing to a tab that specifically locks the shoulder into place. The second pic is a wide shot of the combined mode TF'd this way.

    Heh. Of the three PCC's you've reviewed so far, I have to say that Smolder is pretty cool. I love how the mini-con can perform both functions as a truck hose and as the fireman's axe (abit with guns). I also think the combined mode head is freaking awesome looking.

    EDIT: I have to say that, now with the "proper" combined mode configuration, it looks like a giant football player!

    I actually kinda like the look of the "wrong" combined mode better. :eek:

    I disapprove of the overtly visible robot body in vehicle mode. I guess they make sacrifices for the torso gimmick, though.

    if it was possible i was thinking pushin 2 pices togeather so they touch to fill in the gap behind the head if its possible with the joints good bot, truck mode is good look g1 with out minicon attach to it will plan on buy it combined mode looks weak with to many gaps.

    when his minicon turns into axe i was thinking laser beak looks almost exacly like him in axe mode

    I'm not a real big fan of the PCC gimmick but Smolder doesn't seem to suffer much for it. He's a pretty solid looking figure in all modes and a pretty novel character. Even if I don't win the contest I'll certainly buy it when it hits retail.

    Combined smolder needs to see a doctor for that er' burning sensation he has in his uh er, Dangling Flame thrower nozzle. Ouch!

    Btw. I sent my email with the 3 answers

    It's a shame so many people already posted their answers in the comments section under the vid. It kinda ruins the fun for other folks.

    Great review Peaugh.
