From the weibo page of Jon Jon Zheng we have new image of TFC Toys WWII PCC limbs. Here we see the four prototypes attached to PCC Commander Heavytread and in alt mode. Each figure has the ability to transform into a robot, a vehicle, and a combiner limb. No word on when this set will become available, but it looks as though they're getting close.

These look triffic, but I doubt I'll be getting them for a good long while, since I'm already saving all my money for United Windcharger and Wipeout, plus before I get these limbs I'll need a more suitable commander - I don't really think Icepick would fit in with the WWII vibe...

WOW, its only a 100 times better then anything Hasbro came out with. The shittiest concept ever. The "DRONE" what a lazy amount of FAIL those are,lol. But I gotta admit if someone can come up with changing bots for each limb on each Commander I might just buy them to replace the shitty "DRONE" limbs we are stuck with.

PS: Nice addition of actual hands and feet I HATE when Hasbro does not make hands on bots just like the damn movie figures. We need bots with hands on ALL of our bots,lol.

Theres my rant,sorry. lol

Very nice, I'm loving the bulk and functionality of these limbs on the combiner commanders. I'm glad they aren't out yet, gives me time to save up for them!

Yeah, from what I've heard at Botcon panels... the trick to Hasbro releasing any combiners is making them cost-effective. If they don't make any money off of them (or if they can't pass safety issues) they can't release the toys.

By simplifying the limbs, they were able to cut costs and release these guys... throw us a bone with some kinda combiner. All things considered, it was a fun concept with great play value... but definitely a compromise. I think they know it... and of course, we know it.

And as mentioned above, I'm pretty sure the reason we're not getting BIG combiners is that they can't pass the drop test in safety testing. It's gotta be a pain being a big company. Trying to please little kids, collectors, lawyers, special interest groups....

(and before anyone mentions it... yes, they could release them as "adult collectibles" to get around the safety issue, BUT it would cut out most of their sales market, which brings it back to the money issue.)

Best thing we can do is keep reminding them. We DO want awesome, full-feature combiners like these. And I don't give a hoot about junky kibble mech-tech that's nearly the size of the robot. Best gimmicks (IMHO) still stand as combiners, headmasters/targetmasters, minicons. Energon weapons and mechtech weapons are much lower down the chart.... all the way down to action masters. LOL.

(end rant)

In fairness its only so short because of the commander being used. Otherwise thats what I thought at first glance myself.

I like me some big chunky mech legs. Much better in any case than the ole movie Starscream chicken-dog legs.

Not bad. TFC is really pushing to FansProject territory.

Oook. Wow, yeah that would be fantastic. I think those and a jeep would be must-buys. Hmmmm. What other decent war vehicles were in that era.

Have we identified the types of the planes and tanks? Their original color schemes may hint on what they will look like in the future.

They look awesome!!!

IMHO I think they are cool in a simple kinda way. My only concerns are stability. I saw a video review of Bombshock combined and he was not so sturdy when combined and wobbled just a bit. Can anyone else comment on this factor with this PPC set or any other combiners or commander? It would suck ass if TFC didn't take this into consideration I think...'nuff said! :VEHI:

Yeah, Omega Supreme is a rare exception. I definitely prefer actual fists. Those stupid Energon fingers on the combiners were horrid. Same for these PowerCore sets. The fists look SSoooo much better.

Can't see how more leg-like they can make them, I mean, you can definitely tell what's supposed to be what, for example, the feet, they look like feet. |:|

I haven't noticed anything like this with Bombshock. Mine has been free standing with no support since I removed him from the package and combined him.

His transformation process was a little off due to Hasbro designing too tight a tolerance for some parts to move freely though.

I confess: I'm a PCC hater. But seeing these units on Heavytread has me sorely tempted to get them. The only thing I'm scratching my head over is why World War II? I can't think of a single WWII Transformer, let alone a PCC commander.
