Power Core Combiners
First Looks at Power Core Combiners & Upcoming Products for 2010

By bwbm on Friday, January 29, 2010



Private Universe was at the Toy Fair UK and received a flyer from Hasbro UK about upcoming Transformers in 2010.

The scan also provides a first look at the concept behind Power Core Combiners, which has been revealed as an extension of the theme provided by Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

The scan reveals that Power Core Combiners will feature "combination play," which "delivers an interchangeable system of combiner robots, serving as a range of body parts and weapons."

The image shows off the Huffer and Caliburst two-pack as well as the five-pack Bruticus. The flyer notes that adding the two-pack and the five-pack will "create dozens of unique combinations."

This concept extends from the interchangeable weapons system that was available in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen figures such as Voyager Recon Ironhide.

The flyer also reveals that figures will continue to be introduced and "drive main movie characters & introduce new 'off-screen' realistic characters," including Voyager Seaspray, which we heard about earlier today.

To the left of Seaspray, there also seems to be some sort of Ironhide figure. Due to the small size of the scan, we cannot be sure if the figure is the same Voyager mold that has been made available, or if Ironhide will get the deluxe class treatment like Ratchet has been given.

While showing off Battle Ops Bumblebee, it is also revealed why the figure doesn't sport the Revenge of the Fallen name: the line will begin sporting a new look.

Everything will begin Autumn and Winter 2010, according to the document.

The following write-up was also provided by The Private Universe:
    I was taken round by a nice lady. Movie stuff on display including Leader Starscream and Bludgeon. Game tie-in figures from War on Cybertron were on the stand - present were Prime and Bumblebee, Deluxe size is the only price point for this range. Both were in Cybertron vehicle mode.

    Picture shows Power Core Combiners. She described them as 5 legend sized figures that combine. They look great.

    Battle Ops Bumblebee on show - Price between Leader and Supreme points - £60ish - Looked cool.

    RPMs were a surprise, the hot wheel sized cars. New higher price point called Stealth Force. The cars transformed into a battle mode with gun etc, poping out. The Prime was moterized with sound effects. I was told Bay liked this and is planning on using the idea.

Need more fodder for your army? Didn't think the Power Core Combiner 5 packs were worth full price? Target is where you want to be this week, as they are selling all 5-pack sets for $9.99/EA! The sale runs through 2/19.
Hasbro's Lead Designer Eric Seibenaler said it would be happening back in November of last year, and now we know that the Power Core Combiners figure Spastic will be named Over-Run instead. The figure, when first announced, created a bit of controversy, with the name being considered insensitive for some Transfans based in the U.K. where the word is used to describe a person with the birth defect cerebral palsy in a derogatory way. Hasbro explained that the figure will not be sold in the U.K. Read more.
