Thanks to Anonymous on 4chan who has posted an interesting image that may give some validity to the rumors of the Power-Core Combiners Transformers action figures coming to life.
The "Power-Core Combiners" name originally surfaced as a trademark filing from Hasbro. Since then a number of posts and mentions have been made around the net trying to give this concept wings or debunk it.
The image could be a fan fabrication. What's shown is little more than a mock up of how the product would look like in the package. Complete with cut-outs in place that sure look like the actual toys. Check out the image of the mock-up package that shows a certain G1 character and a Mini-con / Targetmaster looking robot sidekick if you dare at TFormers.com
