The stupidity knows no bounds, does it?
Short answer: Bricks get old after a while.
a house built of bricks is better than one made of of cheap wood so i say older is older but wiser and stonger is way better than new weak flimesy ridiculous toys like these
But they ARE making new toys. We've just seen the Dinobots and Constructicons recently. But we don't know anything beyond that.
Powercore Combiners is a filler line as it is. These repaints help recuperate costs on developing the molds and makes for more product on the shelves. There may be a long wait before we can buy wave four. Thats where the repaints come in so that new product gets released in the meantime.
As for why they didn't do a real homage to Protectobots, well the repaints had to exist so they had to be called something. Smolder had to be used as the Autobot Commander since the criteria was that the molds switch factions when repainted and since he's a rescue vehicle, he becomes a Protectobot. Tanks are present in the team because thats all they had to use. These Protectobots were never about creating a true homage to the G1 originals, just reusing what they had available. IMO, it shows more creativity than a straight homage.
The Destrons are not the Stunticons. They were originally said to be called the Stunticons though but had their name changed because Hasbro said they wanted to do a better job at portraying the Stunticons. I believe the Stunticons will be a repaint of Leadfoot, two Rallybots and two Destructicons when the time comes to repaint wave 2.
I will be quite interested in seeing what they do for a repaint of wave four - the Autobot five pack will consist of a tank, two Dinobot drones and two Constructicon drones. Whereas the Decepticons will have a jet commander and the other drones. We have yet to see the original Decepticon tank Heavy Tread and the Autobot jet Skyhammer so we don't know what they look like. Just what would Hasbro name these two teams?
Hey, you should check out some of the other areas of the site. Lots of places for positive discussion of your favorite G1 stuff. And lots of G1 homages too in Radicons, our customs area.
The PCC line isn't my bag either but I just concentrate on the lines I DO like.
It's more like comparing a TV from the 80's to a high definition plasma screen TV. One's obviously going to tug on your heartstrings, but as there are advances in technology, people are going to want newer variations of things. They're not going to release an Xbox that looks like an Atari. Aesthetics change, as well as the cost to produce things. You can't load a toy with die-cast and sell it for $10 anymore.
I bet G1 Transformers were ridiculous to people that played with Lincoln Logs and marbles. You're stuck in the mind frame of the past, and can't seem to realize that the kids won't be rushing to the stores to buy "AUTHENTIC G1 REISSUE COMBINER" but whatever looks cool to them. And brick is not what's in fashion.
I like toys with added articulation. Mind you I don´t oppose to updated G1 characters done with modern stuff.
But be fair the only G1 stuff I was interested even as the kid were the combiners. For some reason I loved smaller robots that turned into bigger robots. Didn´t cared for much of the other stuff.
Its not compairing 80s tv to todays hdtv cause you see these tvs today are better if you know what i mean these power core tf are not any kid would choose the g1 combiners over these duh the chrome size yea you know its not rocket science my 6 year old even said so thats proof that im right all im saying is hasbro got it all wrong and yes drive down any neiborhood bricks is what people want no one builds houses of wood bricks builds a solid house thats the point g1 solid powercore not i bought one it fell apart melted away

no offense, but i highly doubt your 6 year old speaks for every child on the planet... my cousin loves the look of the PCC's, and so do a ton of my friends... and i personally think they're pretty awesome... nothing in g1 had this autotransform awesomeness... most of the limbs all transformed pretty similar to each other as well... so this is way more fun... to me, at least... i know they aren't everyone's cup of tea...
and i love g1 as much as the next guy, but given the chance, i'd play with Classics Prime way more then a g1 prime...
but like Foster said, check the rest of this site man, there's tons of g1 love all over the place...
Oh spare me the pathtic details for the anchient ones didnt use periods commas bla bla YOUR cousin never played with classics/universe G1 in no your right my 6 year dont speak for ALL but the fact he does for most and most would agree WITH HIM power core are not TF as most dont even transform HA HA you pay $20 bucks for 5 paper things only 1 transforms
Dude, learn to write shit in a decent way. I have a hard time reading your posts. Seriously, you are coming of as a kid in front of a computer.
To the last post get a life really stay on point powercore combiners dude.I mean so many people on this forum that think there better than others to make them sleep better at night. Anways powecore combiners should at least be delux size would be more appealing.
I'd agree with this. When you see the combined mode, there's hardly any torso, no bulk. The proportions are off for me.
I find amusing you are so concerned about me getting a life..
Anyways, nobody is forcing you to buy the PPCs with a gun pointed at your head. Get Generations (it´s apparently awesome) if you want updated G1 figures.
Separate names with a comma.
