Transformers - Power Core Combiners Stakeout
While everyone else has finished up their Toy Fair coverage, I once again buck the trend of what is fashionable, popular and most especially timely by still having some items on that massive to-do list! In particular, the goodly folks at Cepia (Zhu-Zhu Hamsters!), Steve Jackson Games, Celestial Buddies and (geez!) NECA have still not gotten the great coverage they deserve. Their images are waiting patiently, along with some hopefully insightful commentary....ok no promises on that one, but I'll try.
But, like a cheeseburger or a lone pinball machine, the human mind will sadly tire of something awesome if repeated everyday, so in an effort to at least inject something new, I figured it was time to take a look at one of the Transformers: Power Core Combiners sets from the 2010 lineup
! Here we have one of the 5-pack sets, conveniently on sale at Target for $10 - Commander Stakeout and his armada!
Before undergoing the 'Power Core process', Stakeout was a loose cannon - bold, stubborn and adventurous. Then like a designer pharmaceutical, the PCP (hmm) seems to have calmed him right down. I'm not 100% sure that's a good thing, but it does give us some interesting insight into the dirty underbelly of the Power Core program, and the mad scientists who must have been behind it! Click the image above for more shots of this set, and to see the rest of the stats.
