    What kind of PotP combiner news?
    I don't really have time to listen to the whole thing, so if someone can please help me understand what they mean I would greatly appreciate it.
    Thanks in advance,
    Hotconvoy

    P.S. Happy Birthday!

    Hey Shoutout to the Pyrocon reprolabels! Can't recommend them enough! In the middle of a move, but when I'm all set up and everything I'll have to share some pics, I bought some G2 box sets and sold the torsos just so I'd have unattached limbs to mess with.

    Right now I have:

    Torso: Scattershot stickered as Blaze
    Limbs: G2 Stunticons as genericons
    Spares: Prowl (head painted black as a generibot, Ruckus, Dreadwind
    Intend to buy limbs/spares: Wheeljack to sticker as Exhaust, Jazz to resticker as Smokeout

    I intend to make a fanon combiner of Blaze, Exhaust, Smokeout, and the red and yellow G2 stunticon limbs, but I have found that the extra limbs really do let me swap and mess with the gestalt guilt free.

    I kinda did a non-traditional combiner thing.  Skipped Ultra Prime and Motormaster.  Lynx got all of the classic bots and Scourge got the stunticons.

    I ended up having my Defensor formed with Groove and First Aid as legs and Rook and Prowl as arms. I also have Sky Reign paired up with the G2 Aerialbots though I might end up swapping them out for the Dinobots if I can ever find wave 2.

    You guys brought up both a helicopter torsobot and PCC yet forgot about the one that actually already exists: Searchlight. 400px-PCC-toy_Searchlight.jpg
    He was actually pretty cool other than the fact that he was missing some very obvious tabs and locking points.

    Sky Lynx with the G2 Aerialbots looks great.

    I was going to do an RID combiner but never had time and sold the kitbash fodder. Take away Moonracer and replace with CW Mirage as Slid-Z

    I maintain that Cosmos' alt mode is actually a perfect disguise. We as a culture already dismiss anyone who claims to see a UFO, now we got someone saying there's a UFO that turns into a robot? Pfft, sure thing, guy.

    So uh, you guys do know that shockwave plus is being marketed as the “anime edition” right...? That’s why he seems to have the toon logos tampographed. And he does have a new head.

    (Been playing catch-up on the last couple episodes)

    When I was deck building, two things I remember my brother telling me was card advantage and deck thinning.

    Card advantage means either having access to more cards or denying your opponent access to theirs. If you can get thru your library faster you’ll get to your kill cards or combo before they do.

    Deck thinning is about tuning your library as you play, optimising your next draw.

    I think fetch lands are pretty awesome.
