TFW2005 BotCon 2010 Coverage : Power Core Combiners
I haven't really been interested in Power Core Combiners and now that I've seen the toys that hasn't changed. One robot and 4 drones? Pass.
Nope. Still a pass. My wallet can rest.
I like the idea of customizable combinations, but they just aren't quite to the level I will buy them. Kids are going to love the HELL out of these though!
ill be grabbing at least one 5 pack and maybe a 2 pack but thats all with out checking them out first hand.
I can tell this toyline is going to clog up shelves which should have something half decent. My money will be spent on Generations, HFTD and G1s. And PCC Smolder, probably the only PCC I'll get
I have Skyburst on the way. However, I don't want to pay too much for these. They are Scouts after all. I felt stung when I bought an RPM figure, buying four similar toys (the drones) would probably sting worse.
I'll bet that is what they are going to talk about tomorrow!
hm.......... those tabs thingies look like a plus in kitbashing but still theyre still nauseating
I am definitely in the minority here because this is the line that I'm most excited about! That's right, I'm looking forward to PCC's much more than most of what I've seen from the Generations line. I'm going to purchase every single one of these guys! I hope they start showing up in my area soon! I definitely don't trust that 7/1/10 release date...
oh noes !! Where are the stunticons and protecotobts, i hoped to see them.
Okay, Huffer, Smolder, and Searchlight all kick ass, but we've already known that and I've already known I want them.
The 5-pack PCC's look...half baked, like before. The newer ones (Destructicons and Rallybots) look better-proportioned than the first wave (Combaticons and Aerialbots), but I'm only interested in the core robots at this point, and they'd better be damn good looking in-hand at the store if I'm going to drop a $20 on them and a quartet of drone-limbs.
And then there's the second trio of the 2-pack PCC's. Leadfoot is automatic win since he's really close to being a direct homage to his original G2 counterpart (who was the only rotorforce figure that didn't need a flying disk) and has the "BLACKROCK" homage on the spoiler. Also, do I see his hands being formed from the exhaust pipes? Awesome.
Icepick looks like Energon Snow Cat except a whole lot more dangerous. I like how his mini-con's weapon mode is like Armada Fire-Bot's third weapon mode, but Icepick's hands look kinda useless and don't appeal to me. He's a maybe.
Lastly, Sledge just looks...odd. He kinda looks like a backhoe, but then the drill-mini-con makes a whole lot less sense. Of all the PCC 2-packs, he's probably my least favorite of the bunch.
Maybe Hasbro will put them in when they swap the display figures. Everything we've seen on display so far has already been seen in released/leaked pictures.
I have to tell you guys, I don't typically go for the kids aspect of transformers - i.e., sit around and play with them, etc. - but I picked upthe combaticons and smolder last month from Deceptigar on a whim and they are surprisingly fun. I have to say that even the drones, which typically I would shy away from, are cool little vehicles. I'll end up getting several of these. Hope ya'll at least give them a shot.
Dispossible nonsense really - but Icepick looks nice.
I really like the ideas of these guys but they dont seem to be able to get the arm transformers right. The legs are really great but the arms are just fail. I want to get them but not with out acceptable appendages. That being said leadfoot is made of pure win.
I like the Leadfoot, as it has a very g1 Dragstrip-feel to it. What scale are these? Deluxe or scout?
But they're more traditional than the ROTF scouts but just as complex.
IMO PCC is a maybe on my "want" list. I do like their vehicles mode and some of their bot mode are okay, but some well getting used to.
I'm sorry because I LOVE the IDEA behind these but they just look terrible. The combined forms are seriously just a mess. No definable hands, the heads look too small, etc. Come on Hasbro you have a good idea just no followthrough!
These look yummy. Can't wait to get my hands on all of them.
