    Considering how Supreme Devestator is still on the shelves, and probably will be for a VERY long time, I don't think Hasbro wasn't to jepordise the ability of that thing to sell.

    Since when are any of those vehicles construction vehicles? The team that makes up Devastator is called Constructicons not Destructicons.

    Devastator is overdone. Let's get something different for Powercore instead of yet another construction vehicle-based Decepticon combiner. If they have to do construction vehicles, how about something based on RiD Landfill?

    Mudsinger could be a good motormaster, while the rest of the rallybots could be stunticons, someone should make a mod of them when they are out.
    I hope we get better pictures of them soon. I cant wait to see how they will look.

    If they made a new version of Devs, not tied to the ROTF look but with ROTF-style components - and one of those was Overload - I'd probably buy it.

    all the powercore combiners are new characters. the combined modes are just powered up forms of the scout in the set. for instance, bombshock isnt bruticus, no matter how many people say otherwise.

    The components dont have robot modes or names, so that seems highly unlikely

    True, they arent the G1 combiners, and they are most likely their own continuity, but the majority of them have G1 or G2 names

    I wasn't clear at all; I meant if Overload was the Scout size figure the others connect to. But I agree anything like what I suggested is very unlikely to be made.

    Considering Power Core Combiners are sorta-kinda-not-really-but-maybe Movie-related, "Constructicons" may be held out of that line (or reserved as movie-only for the current time)

    That's pretty weak reasoning as that's held true since Beast Wars. Hasbro owns the rights to certain names. To keep holding onto those rights, they have to keep using the names.

    Totally. This is why I love this new concept. They're not trying to replace anyone. I can't look at Skyburst or Bombshock and think Superion or Bruticus. But as new characters? For sure.

    Um. I didn't actually reason anything? But maybe I should specify what I was saying. They're using fairly obscure names.

    For instance, they're using Huffer, who hasn't been seen since G1, except for his Botcon toy. And, much like the Botcon Huffer, this one is a very strong homage to his G1 likeness.

    He may not be G1 Huffer, but they're obviously designing him around the idea that people who want a new Huffer will impulse buy him. Unlike, say, BW Skywarp who had absolutely nothing in common with G1 Skywarp.

    G2 Leadfoot was an F1 racer, PCC Leadfoot is an F1 racer. G1 Bombshock was a military themed mini-con, PCC Bombshock is a military vehicle of some sort.

    So, I wasn't trying to support the "omg, we need more Devastators and Bruticuses" argument, I was saying "hey, it sure is nice to get some obscure homages that serve more purposes than just being an homage"

    Its a great idea I think their going to go it the way they have been with the first 2 waves, and make it a new thing with some slight fan wanks.

    The other thing to take into consideration, is that these 5 packs represent rivalries, air vs land warfare, racing vs monster truck rally/demolition derby. It's kind of hard to make Autobot rivals for guys who's theme is building stuff.
