Many thanks to Adam for pointing out a bug, and his fix, for the Transformers Power Core Combiners Combaticons figures - in which the toys legs pop off.

 Hello TF@The Moon,

I'd like to report a problem with the Power Core Combiners sets [or at least the Combaticons], and the resultant fix. I haven't heard of this from anyone else, so perhaps it's just early days, or perhaps my toy was unique in it's fault.

With my Bombshock, I found that his combiner legs would spring off very easily, in fact, while he was being held [or even standing on his own!] his legs would slowly ease apart at the knee and the combiner drone would shoot off. This is due to the springs in the 'leg drones' being way too powerful, and the blue joint being too loose. Here's my fix:

With the grey tracked vehicle, the spring is visible towards the rear end. Simply get a drawing pin or sewing needle, and ease the arm of the spring away from the inside wall of the vehicle. The arm can then be folded away or cut off with clippers.

The yellow jeep is a bit more complex. The two pins at the front end need to be tapped out. I did this [again] with a drawing pin and a hammer. The second pin can be tapped out with the first one. This will cause the levers inside to fall down, and the spring with come out. To re-assemble, simply push the pins back inside, making sure that the black lever lines up again [easier than it sounds!].

The legs will no longer be spring loaded, but gravity and the internal levers do the job just as well, if not better! They still won't take much pulling around, as the blue pegs are simply too loose, but the won't come shooting off at the slightest touch.

I hope this helps anybody who's had a similar problem!

PS: Deluxe Generations were found in my Exeter Toymaster yesterday, priced at £9.99! Mistake, or new price point?

Regards,

Adam

TFW2005 have received reports that the Transformers Power Core Combiner 5-pack's (Aerialbots and Combaticons) and 2-packs have been spotted for sale in Australia, some 3 months prior to their scheduled release in the USA.

Also mentioned is the highly anticipated Seaspray toy, although the figure appears not to be available for sale just yet.

The Transformers Power Core Combiner line has had m­ixed reactions for fans, mainly due to the non-transforming limbs for the combiner figures.

The US Toy Fair is on at the moment with the same figures on display that were shown at both the British and Nurnberg Toy Fairs, the main difference is that the US one normally allows photographs as well as being easier for non-toy trade people to get in.

The Allspark.com are in attendance and have been tweeting away with some information on what is going on, so here is a summary

Transformers: Hunt For The Decepticons (subline)
Legends class Ravage, Rampage, Sandstorm (a Beachcomber repaint), Hubcap (a 1950s roadster), Brimstone (a green with blue flames chopper styled motorcycle), Insecticon (the bug from Revenge of the Fallen that went looking for Sam).
Battle blade Bumblebee, a deluxe size toy with a new mold.
Jetblade, a blue and white repaint of Dirge
A new Sideswipe with red flames on the bonnet.
Hailstorm, a missile charrier with 8 firing missiles.
Elita-1 (the third "arcee" motorcycle).  Instructions will be released online to say how to combine them).
Forest Battle Optimus Prime.  Has battle damage and comes with hoos on his hands.
Battle Ops Bumblebee is actually 2 inches taller than the leader class figure.
Human Alliance Jazz with Lennox.  Jazz's gun turns into a motorcycle for Lennox to use.

"Transformers Generations" is the new name for Universe, i.e a line of deluxes that they can thrown anything into.
First up its announced that the Henkei Thrust toy will be released in that line.
A triple changer called Darkmount is the second "Generations" toy. He was originally to be called Straxus but they couldn't register the name.  He's big, blue, with an axe.  According to the Allspark, his head is spot on. He transforms into a robot, tank and missile emplacement

Power Core Combiner news
The 5 pack is called Bombshock but with a group name of the Combaticons, no names were shown but there was a tank and missile launcher.
The scout figures from the two packs can replace the 5 pack torso in the combination.
Leadfoot somes with Pinpoint.
The Aerialbots are called Skyburst.
There is an Autobot race car team as well as Constructicons.

Masterpiece Grimlock will be release in the original Japanese colour scheme, but with the crown from the 2nd release.

The name of the main toy has not been revealed, but from the images you can tell that the figure is a Decepticon who turns into a fire truck and comes with a Mini-Con called Chopster.  According to the packaging the toy has "4 minicon modes", a "vehicle weapon", a "robot weapon" and "Power-Up Armour".­
