    Wait wait wait waaaaaiiiiit a second.

    ...Why do the tank feet turn into miscolored turrets like an afterthought when they could have been engineered and colored from the start to simply be the only turret that could cleanly turn into feet without a giant partblock just hanging around? Nonintegrated parts are a dealkiller. Everything else looks alright, cept the planes look all sorts of weird to me in robot mode. Kibble guns aren't my thing.

    Also someone is reuploading Optibotimus's videos on youku. An Evac vid popped up when I was exploring the related videos. Oh neat so is Peaugh's. I guess youtube is blocked over there huh?

    Saw that too (about the feet serving as alt turrents) and wondered the same thing.

    I'm actually more put out by the realization that the two tanks are so similar in everyway. Found myself wishing the beige one was an armored half track. Then we see in the video that the planes too are pretty much the same underlying mold.

    I want to buy this to support more development for PCC scout class figs, but this kinda moved me to the "on the fence" crowd. Really glad I didn't preorder.

    Nice, thanks for the video. I definitely agree that these are great little figures and a huge upgrade for the Power Core Combiners. I am especially digging the amount of detail that went into each figure and the different nations theme.

    The only thing I am not sure about is if it's worth while for someone to hunt down a PCC for these?

    Don't see why not, I think the PCC commanders can be found fairly cheaply still.

    Thanks for the review. This set looks great combined with Heavytread, but not amazing enough to warrant spending $80 for the set imo. I definitely think this is what PowerCore Combiners should have been though.

    Yeah, I totally understand the cost reservations. And yeah, this is what PCC should have been.

    killer review man, I really dig that you did a side by side shot with BS and HT next together I really wanted to see how much taller BS was than HT and this satisfied my inquiry because I only have one set at the moment.

    Great reviews as ever Peaugh, thank you! I will be interested to see these compared with Mobine once that is out.

    Hey Peaugh I just wanted to shout out that your review was basically the thing that made me want them even more and decide to get them. So now I just gotta wait for them to arrive. :) 

    Your reviews are so good. You have a very clear and well spoken voice and I like hearing your genuine enthusiasm. :thumbs2: 

    Thanks again for that. :)

    I don't have Heavytread....will be waiting for the United version to come out instead, so for now, Bombshock will have to do.
