    perhapse the minicons turn into pieces of armor, and you can mix and match from othe figs.
    i.e.
    this guy seems to have one that is a chest plate. maybe another can come with a gauntle or sholder armor?
    This is either going to rock immensely or suck tremendously.
    I have to withold judgment for now, but stock is going up.

    So, it is the return of Armada.

    Only this time the molds don't suck, the faces aren't ******ed, the robots can bend their knees, the cars don't look like plush toys, and we are not strapping tiny aircraft carriers on to the sides of sports cars.


    I'm in.

    Well, I'm imagining the Mini-Cons, at least in weapon form, can be interchangeable between same size-class figures. It would be neat if the armor was too.

    Yeah i think there is more to this powercore combiner gimmick than just mini-cons. Its stuff like this I really like, as it lets the imagination run wild...i just hope it doesn't lead to disappointment :D

    Wonder if we'll get a Trailbreaker out of the eventual recolor of this.

    Been waiting for more pics from this line! Chopster looks pretty cool. I like Mini-cons/Targetmasters, etc. The idea behind these figures is pretty cool. So many play options!

    Isn't Power core (power cells) minicons some battery packs like thing that attach to the big guy and make it light up? If the mini-figure can change into 4 modes then I would guess that there will be 4 different places lighting up on the big guy when the 2 combines.

    So, the new line is heavy on minicons/targetmasters...?
    Sludge.

    It's not the toys I mind, they show great playability, it's the fiction that will accompany it- hopefully it aint the armada pokeformers. And even then, even the rebirth in all it's less-than-goodness showed us why it is ******ed to allow a bunch of guys to turn into your guns in case they turn on you.

    And please no headmasters. There is no fictional device alive which can possibly explain why the hell you would let somebody else build themselves into YOUR HEAD. Even if it could bring advantages, you just wouldn't do it. (Yeah, transectors make more sense, but even then, why are headmaster/transector pairs more powerful than normal guys?!!)

    So, yeah, toys look great, I just fear the accompanying fiction. I hope I'm wrong.

    I like it. I liked Armada for the Minicons, so this is right up my alley. I couldn't tell be the pics, but have we confirmed that the Mini-cons have Robot modes?
