The Official Hasbro Website has been updated with one of the new toy lines to start this summer, Power Core Combiners. Check out all the fun below.

Expanding upon the essence of DEVASTATOR — a robot built by combining multiple construction vehicles — the TRANSFORMERS brand unveils the new POWER CORE COMBINERS expression that redefines the magic of combination play. The toys deliver an interchangeable system of robots, vehicles and weapons that escalates the level of fun and increases the number of robots within a child’s TRANSFORMERS toy universe.
The TRANSFORMERS POWER CORE COMBINERS introduce fans to an all-new assortment of figures that expand on the classic play pattern of the popular “ROBOTS IN DISGUISE.” This new expression of figures combine with one another, in dozens of variations, to create a wide variety of larger COMBINER robots, with each figure serving as various body parts and weapons. Available in 2-packs and 5-packs.

• TRANSFORMERS POWER CORE COMBINERS 2-Pack
(Ages 5 & up)
The TRANSFORMERS POWER CORE COMBINERS 2-Pack includes one SCOUT scale TRANSFORMERS figure and one MINI-CON scale figure. The SCOUT scale figure features a ‘robot’ mode and a ‘vehicle’ mode. The MINI-CON scale figure has four modes: ‘robot’ mode, robot weapon, vehicle weapon and Power-up Armor for combining with the central SCOUT scale figure in both robot and vehicle mode. 2-Pack figures are interchangeable with 5-Pack figures.


• TRANSFORMERS POWER CORE COMBINERS 5-Pack
(Ages 5 & up)
The TRANSFORMERS POWER CORE COMBINERS 5-Pack features teams of TRANSFORMERS characters that can combine together to form one large TRANSFORMERS figure. Each team consists of one SCOUT scale figure and four LEGENDS scale vehicles. The SCOUT scale figure features one ‘vehicle’ mode and two ‘robot’ modes and each of the LEGENDS scale vehicles can plug into the specially marked ports on the central SCOUT scale figure to instantaneously convert into an arm or leg using auto-conversion technology. All figures can be swapped out with one another to form multiple different combinations and new figures. 5-Pack figures are interchangeable with 2-Pack figures.


Bombshock with Combaticons

Stolen by DECEPTICON spies, Power Core Combination gives the evil robots a powerful edge. Those who have the power of combination are a dangerous threat to the AUTOBOTS and Earth! BOMBSHOCK was once a member of the most elite unit in the Cybertronian military. He betrayed his comrades, and his reward was to become commander of a powerful DECEPTICON Power Core team. Even alone, each of his drones has as much firepower as the average AUTOBOT. Together, they are nearly unstoppable. Power up for the ultimate robot battles! Your BOMBSHOCK Commander vehicle is already a virtually unstoppable opponent in his vehicle and robot modes. But his strength gets increased five-fold when you convert him to Power-Up mode and convert his COMBATICON drone figures into his limbs! And the action doesn’t stop there. With this Power Core interchangeable robot combination system, MINI-CONS (sold separately) and drone vehicles can attach to power up any Commander figure. Collect more packs and you can create tons of unique and fierce robot battler figure combinations! Five-pack includes BOMBSHOCK, Missile Carrier Drone, Tank Drone, APC Drone and Armored Care Drone figures.

Skyburst with Aerialbots
Image

Thought lost long ago, Power Core Combination has recently been rediscovered on Earth. It creates a new breed of powerful AUTOBOT warriors to destroy the DECEPTICONS! To be given command of one of the first AUTOBOT Power Core teams is a great honor – one that SKYBURST isn’t sure he deserves. He uses his enhanced abilities to execute search and rescue operations in conditions too dangerous for human crews – or even other AUTOBOTS. Together with his drone companions, SKYBURST protects the skies from the DECEPTICON threat. Power up for the ultimate robot battles! Your SKYBURST Commander vehicle is already a virtually unstoppable opponent in his vehicle and robot modes. But his strength gets increased five-fold when you convert him to Power-Up mode and convert his AERIALBOT drone figures into his limbs! And the action doesn’t stop there. With this Power Core interchangeable robot combination system, MINI-CONS (sold separately) and drone vehicles can attach to power up any Commander figure. Collect more packs and you can create tons of unique and fierce robot battler figure combinations! Five-pack includes SKYBURST, Recon Plane Drone, Chopper Drone, Combat Helicopter Drone and Fighter Jet Drone figures.

Searchlight with Backwind
Image

SEARCHLIGHT is the most skilled search and rescue operative the AUTOBOTS have. His combination with BACKWIND makes him able to operate at full effectiveness for even longer, making him invaluable in recovery operations. Power up for the ultimate robot battles! Your SEARCHLIGHT figure is already a virtually unstoppable opponent in his vehicle and robot modes. But his strength gets doubled when you factor in your BACKWIND figure and his four modes! Convert this MINI-CON ally figure to weapon accessories for him when he’s in rescue helicopter vehicle mode or Commander mode. Then, convert your BACKWIND figure into an armor accessory for your SEARCHLIGHT figure’s Power Up Mode! And the action doesn’t stop there. With this Power Core interchangeable robot combination system, MINI-CONS and drone vehicles (sold separately) can attach to power up any Commander figure. Collect more packs and you can create tons of unique and fierce robot battler figure combinations! Exciting two-pack of robot figures includes SEARCHLIGHT robot-to-vehicle figure and MINI-CON figure with four modes! BACKWIND figure converts from robot to weapon accessory for SEARCHLIGHT figure vehicle mode, weapon accessory for SEARCHLIGHT figure robot mode and armor accessory for SEARCHLIGHT figure Power-Up mode.

Smolder with Chopster
Image

No one holds a grudge like SMOLDER. He plots elaborate revenge against his hundreds of enemies, and thanks to his combination with CHOPSTER, he’s got the power to see each of them through. Power up for the ultimate robot battles! Your SMOLDER figure is already a virtually unstoppable opponent in his vehicle and robot modes. But his strength gets doubled when you factor in your CHOPSTER figure and his four modes! Convert this MINI-CON ally figure to weapon accessories for him when he’s in fire truck vehicle mode or Commander mode. Then, convert your CHOPSTER figure into an armor accessory for your SMOLDER figure’s Power Up Mode! And the action doesn’t stop there. With this Power Core interchangeable robot combination system, MINI-CONS and drone vehicles (sold separately) can attach to power up any Commander figure. Collect more packs and you can create tons of unique and fierce robot battler figure combinations! Exciting two-pack of robot figures includes SMOLDER robot-to-vehicle figure and MINI-CON figure with four modes! CHOPSTER figure converts from robot to weapon accessory for SMOLDER figure vehicle mode, weapon accessory for SMOLDER figure robot mode and armor accessory for SMOLDER figure Power-Up mode.

Huffer with Caliburst
Image

With CALIBURST by his side, HUFFER is just as inclined to grumble as he’s ever been, but he’s also faster, stronger, and smarter, which means the DECEPTICONS have a lot more to complain about than he does. Power up for the ultimate robot battles! Your HUFFER figure is already a virtually unstoppable opponent in his vehicle and robot modes. But his strength gets doubled when you factor in your CALIBURST figure and his four modes! Convert this MINI-CON ally figure to weapon accessories for him when he’s in truck vehicle mode or Commander mode. Then, convert your CALIBURST figure into an armor accessory for your HUFFER figure’s Power Up Mode! And the action doesn’t stop there. With this Power Core interchangeable robot combination system, MINI-CONS and drone vehicles (sold separately) can attach to power up any Commander figure. Collect more packs and you can create tons of unique and fierce robot battler figure combinations! Exciting two-pack of robot figures includes HUFFER robot-to-vehicle figure and MINI-CON figure with four modes! CALIBURST figure converts from robot to weapon accessory for HUFFER figure vehicle mode, weapon accessory for HUFFER figure robot mode and armor accessory for HUFFER figure Power-Up mode.

Pass for me.. I have no interest in the gestalts if the appendages do not transform into individual robots.

Pass Pass Pass.

Loving these figs...can't wait to add them to my collection. I can already see Hasbro's brain trust: let's do a G1 repaint and get all the G1 suckers!

Random thought, but could Legends Devy combine with these guys?

Reeeeeeally hoping these come out before my birthday. Again, the 5-packs I will use for Classics Bruticus and Superion. Hopefully, they'll make a Constructicon version.

Very unlikely, I don't have him, but I don't think the connectors are the same

They don't. They have octangular connector pegs, so no combining these. That's a good idea though! :APPLAUSE:

Peaugh's review put me off the Aerialbots cos I thought the gestalt looked very poor but amazingly Hasbro's pic makes it look good - that's a first for the bro's!

I can live with drones..I mean, they are dissapointing but I can understand how the playability/ease of use outweighs that. However, i wish they would have went a little further with the "feet" drones. Every video i watch has these guys tumbling over. I think longer toes and/or a heel spur would have went a long way. Still loving the two packs though.
