United EX / Power Core Combiner Story Information

{mosimage}We've received information about the back story for TakaraTomy's releases of Power Core Combiners as United EX.  Here are the details provided via the information in the latest issue of Figure King as well as what will likely be printed on the package of each figure.

"In the 21st century, the war of the Transformers has shifted to space, and seemed for a while that peace had returned to Earth. However, during that time the Autobots had been working together with Earth scientist Professor Chase to develop a new combination system. With it, Autobots would use Power Core Combination to combine themselves with 4 Drones. The Autobot warriors chosen for the process became part of the group known as the Master Class. At the same time, a covert counter-team of Decepticons with the same capability, "Master Chaos," was formed."

The story told on the package backs reflects the atmosphere of the United series, while including characters from earlier Transformers series such as wheelchair-bound genius Chip Chase.
