    Has Hasbro officially ended the Power Core Combiners line?

    Dead as a doornail.

    It's a shame that they were really improving on the last wave...

    I can't agree more. Especially with DoubleClutch. I think aesthetically he was great but it was such a fall apart floppy mess that it was ruined.

    I think some of the two packs had some nice scout sized figures even if they were simple. Huffer, Smolder, and Leadfoot were all pretty cool on their own.

    I just wish the Dinobots and Heavytread were more easier to find. Those were the main ones I wanted to get. Just never seen them at all. But yeah, the series is pretty much dead.

    I was lucky enough to get Dinopope about a month ago at walmart on clearance.

    I appreciated the PCC line, but I'm not going to miss it.

    The first 4 waves, yes.

    The last wave was great, but it was far too late at that point.

    I liked the scout figures, not so much the 5packs, mainly 'cause of the stupid transforming limbs...
    but damn! the best figures (Sky Hammer, Heavythread, Grimstone/Dinobots and Steamhammer/Constructicons, oh and Undertow too) never arrived here, not even one :(  I hated the repaints wave, the colours were... strange
    I really hope PCC doesn't continue, here, those figure arrived in HUGE quantities, still warming shelves, retailers just had each time more and more of them, and their prices were bad (at least the 5packs at voyager price)
    but oh well, what can we do :p

    I really liked the line, but I'm okay with it dying. I just wish I had gotten a Dinopope, for closure.

    As someone who was an initial supporter, I'm going to say that I hope it is dead. I was very excited about them, but the poor execution left me wanting. Even the Dinobots/Constructicons sets weren't that great. Better than the others, but still disappointing.

    the thing that killed those 5 packs where the limbs. some worked but most didnt.

    i mean even though the limbs just kind of popped out, they could have engineered them a little better to look more like limbs.

    and some drone choices with the 5 packs were bad, i love the black destron set but his left arm is just crap.

    if the limbs functioned more like a limb i think they would have done better.

    I liked them for what they were.

    Still, there are other awesome things coming so I wouldn't go out of my way wishing for it to continue.

    I hope we see more at some point. Be it Botcon exclusives, or potential Universe style repaints.

    I really want to see an Abominus deco for Grimstone and his Dinobots.

    I hope it's just on hiatus. Thanks to gang-molding, there *should* at least be a purple Pinpoint and red Icepick...
    The 2-packs were always great, the 5-packs were getting there, and there's so many neat ideas for this line (PCC trains, anyone?). It'd be a shame if it was completely done.

    If anything killed PCCs, I think the general distribution woes last year did more than poor design choices or even QC issues. Then again, PCCs may have just been a filler line all along, destined to be killed of once DotM came along regardless of how sales went.
