    My girlfriend bought me one of the Power Core Combiners: Smolder and I was wondering if any of you know if there is an anime cartoon out there or a story synopses to explain the nature of new combining characters and their technic?

    No, they're new, and intended to be a subline of the RoTF toyline.

    Smolder is set to show up in the Cyber Missions. Might get some more story on him there.

    I hope they don't show up in any fiction. I hate when gimmicks are implemented into the fiction, Transformers are suppose to be a society of living beings, throwing in all these gimmicks cheapens that IMO

    Actually as they are living machines, they are forever upgrading. You could make a case that new gimmicks merely represent a new kind of upgrade, new technology that is available.

    To look at it from another perspective - it is like kung-fu heroes learning new techniques. Military characters or spies getting new hardware and gadgets for their missions. Super heroes getting new allies to help them, or new powers (or ways to use existing powers) as the story progresses.

    From that perspective, Transformers is not unique. It's just a toyline driven series rather than a series that also has a toyline - so things appear as toys and then in fiction, rather than showing up in fiction, then being made as toys later.
