Okay, so I got into PCC, and I like it more than I thought I would. The playability and interchangeability are great. As I have said previously, I Think HasTak is gonna bank on this. Anyway, after reading the sides of the packaging, about how this is an ancient technology that was recently rediscovered on earth; I began thinking about the drones and minicons. Can one assume that the drones may be in fact a sparkless Minicon? The Minicons were once a part of the cybertronian races, and if I remeber the comic mythos correctly, they struck out on their own when things got bad for them. In the Armada Cartoon weren't there Minicons in a form of stasis or something? Previous threads posted on here about the personalty or personalties of the combiner teams when combined, also got me thinking. We also know that the commanders are part of the teams but apparently were not part the team's gestalt. So with little being said about the drones and PCC in general, I was thinking of filling in some gaps with a couple of Ideas. 1. The drones for PCC ARE sparkless minicons that have been rebuilt to be controlled by the commander. 2. The drones ARE Minicons that have chosen to have their spark integrated into their commander and had themselves reformatted into limbs rather than robots. Or... 3. The drones are just that, drones that were created by say the commander that has chosen to have a part of their spark incorporated into the drones to act as extensions of themselves. I can see lots of good backstory (Which has always been important to me) with any of these ideas. But what do you think, could there be merit to any of this or do you have other ideas that I did not think of?
