    Decided to break my vow of no combiners to finally cave and give one a shot. Never was a fan of the combining bots as a kid as it forced you to buy 5 figures and I still dont care for them to this day, but I need to freshen up my skills so heres the first of 5 Technobots:

    Nice. At first, I was a little surprised that you didn't just use Cybertron Ransack since he can also be used as a proper arm for Computron, but this seems to work just as well.

    Awesome! I saw those figures at the store that you bought that at and was wondering what they could be used for.

    Very nice usage of that figure!

    What is this toy from and does Walmart (or any other store) still carry them?

    It's from a line called "Cykons". However, what Shinobitron has done is give it an actual head. The original transformation just gives it a "windshield head". Quite innovative reall.
    There's a slew of them at a store about 5 minutes from me. If you'd be interested in one, we could arrange something.

    Never seen them at a WM before, but my walmart doesn't have quite a few toy lines others do.

    That's sweet! I've never seen those before either. I'll have to look around. I'm glad you decided to give him a head though....
