    Power core technology is a morally ambiguous "upgrade" that Transtech Shockwave created for some low-techs to aid in his multiversal data gathering,

    Commanders undergo a painful process to either get the combination technology and a transdimensional alternity shifter with sub-programming to keep them in shockwave's control from Shockwave's Paradron drones, or can gain rare energon burning "adrenaline" like systems from the autobots to increase the power of the commander, at the risk of spark damage dependant on the energon type, dark energon can drive one mad or destroy their spark.

    the drones are controlled by one specific leader (like darkstream ("upgraded cyberjet") and the destructicons) but can be high-jacked by other commanders. Autobot Power cores are autobot made imitations of the original technology, and are often inferior without modification, wheeljack's modified dinobot team are the strongest imitation known.

    Any opinions on this for an alternate origin?

    For the official integration, let's say one autobot team was lost in time, ending up as the "forgotten ancient autobot technology" before Kup's youth.

    Tfwiki. There's the explanation. Apparently combination could be pulled off rather naturally in the distant past. However this was forgotten and a bunch of commanders were mad depressed for eons and even they forgot about it. PCC is myotic combination and not Gestalt. There have been plenty of myotic combiners such as Doucons and Magmatron and even G1 Optimus Prime.

    I meant as an alternate explanation for why PCCs need blue cubes and other combiners haven't done that before... and why they're not strictly tied to one storyline, though the movieverse draws 'em in.
