    Just what I was thinking as I was watching it. Now that's how you do a toy commercial!

    That was quite cool. Reminded me a lot of the G1 combiner commercials.

    Perhaps I don't watch TV enough, but I haven't seen it here in New Zealand yet. I probably will over the next few days.

    The ad itself was kinda cool. But there were a few things that annoyed me. I still think the name is completely stupid. I also think that some bits like the whole "bigger, badder bots" thing was ridiculous. I may have an ever-lasting hate for Powercore Combiners, but the advert was decent enough to do it's job, so at least, I can't hate on Hasbro for marketing one of their new lines reasonably well.

    Decent commercial, But retro for me would have the old Robots in Disguise with the funky sounding voice...

    Not as retro as they could be. There's no catchy theme in the background and the announcer isn't as excitable as he should be.

    I may be wrong, but haven't the majority of reviews on these been "meh" (i.e. combined modes leave much to be desired)?

    Dont forget that child of nightmare that painfully turns into a chibi-defeformed malevolent Galvatron mini-me creature thing. That abomination of a kid aisde, this commercial really does feel like an old Transformers commercial to me. That's awesome - though I think Takara's old commercials are even better. All of them were done in Gojira-style stop-motion and it was the shit!

    Kinda reminds me of when they were selling the Headmasters, Targetmasters, and Powermasters all on the shelves at the same time. Then again that's back when Hasbro used all their gimmicks to sell the other one. "Hey kids, get a Headmaster to fight your Targetmaster - it's awesome!" Honestly I think they should get a few Activators thrown into this line and say somethin about their super-fast transformation helps them fight the combining abilities of the PCC ones or somethin. Hell I don't know it's a toy line we could toss ideas around all day.

    i feel that was a golden era for TF, the gimmick sub groups allowed for some fun designs in quite small groups, eg headmasters, or even v small groups, eg clones. i find eg ROTF as a line incredibly tiresome, the sub groups eg FAB's add some interest but they are the same characters repeated again and again. pcc's arent great looking esp in combined mode but they are simople fun for kids and i feel the limb swap allows kids to play around with each others sets!

    False advertising. You only get a "badder bot" when you combine the Decepticons...

    "Bad" as if "Bad@$$". Ex: "Optimus Prime is a one bad robot, in TF2" :)

    I guess it just depends on the individual who purchases them. I've watched a lot of videos of these guys and the number of possible combinations are pretty cool and suprising to me
