    Well this all started with my Alt scale Afterburner, but when I realized that the sheer size of a Computron constructed of characters in that scale would be incredibly difficult to pull off, I decided to go for a Classics scale instead. It is already going much faster than the previous incarnation.
    He is constructed from a huge variety of parts, but the main base is a Classics Mirage. Arm mode for Computron is shown, and it will have very good articulation. The cool thing is, I was able to work in an integrated connector joint (the chest opens to reveal the attachment point, and the white piece will be worked into the Scattershot figure.) I am reworking the head, so bot mode pics will be up tomorrow, along with a few paint touch ups (although I do want a nitty-gritty appearance on these guys.)
    Alt Afterburner will still be completed, he will just be a stand alone figure now, rather than part of a combiner.
    -ENJOY!-

    I love the fact you can hide the connector! It looks great.

    A dirty technobot team will be interesting.
