  • SP Review 26: Power Core Combiners - Windburn with Darkray


    Repaints, Hasbro's quickest method for create a new character.

    Finishing with the Power Core Reviews, here's the 2-Pack "Windburn with Darkray"

    The figure itself is a repaint of the Autobot Searchlight, if the figure was an Autobot and if it used a light gray or white, we could had a "Classics style" version of the Protectobot Blades, it kinda looks nice with the gold propeller blades, but don't worry, unlike the infamous Gold Plastics of the G2 & Beast Wars era, todays gold plastics doesn't suffer from the infamous Gold Plastic Syndrome, in Windburn's case, they're like soft plastic, the blades can rotate quite good, and like Searchlight, it doesn't have wheels for landing, that could be kinda lame.

    There' not too much to say about the Robot Mode or "Commander Mode", same transformation and same posability like Searchlight.





    The Power-Up mode looks acceptable for a repaint, even with the Ultra Magnus like head, with the Combaticon Drones looks quite good, once you fix the leg problem of the APC & Armored Car Drones.



    Darkray is obviously the Mini-Con partner of Windburn, and also a recolor of Caliburst, Huffer's Mini-Con, something curious about Darkray is its colors, on the package is shown with traslucent orange plastic and light gray, but the figure is dark green and black, a color change error like in Beacon?, could be, but unlike Beacon, the color change favored Darkray and also it still have its traslucent plastic.
    It also have more traslucent plastic than Caliburst, the "half-gears" on the shoulders are traslucent instead of silver. The transformations are the same as Caliburst, the Robot Weapon Mode looks quite good on Windburn.





    What i have to say about this two?, not the best, but not the worst of the toyline, easily gets a 7/10

      ^ I think your wish became true, check this comment from TFormers

      "Toyfair 2011 was over the weekend and with all the new lines out there was an existing one that was completely overlooked. New lines, new toys, and new molds of existing characters but no Power Core Combiners. So does this mean that the slow moving line of transforming robots and drones have come to an end, will the Dinobots and Constructicons be the last five packs and heavytread and skyhammer the last of the commanders. With the lack of even a display at Toyfair might mean that it is coming to an end."

      To put it simple, Game Over for Power Core Combiners, it's obvious that Hasbro cancelled the toyline for work on the upcoming Dark Of The Moon toyline.
