    Don't know if this has been reported yet but we have already seen HQ ko reissues of devastator, superion, defensor, & most recently menasor but now apparently there's a computron in the works as well! The ioffer seller below is listing the item as being on sale as early as next month. I've dealt with him in the past and he's been fairly reliable, also with all the recent KO's lately being released I wouldn't doubt it if this is the next release.

    I'm surprised GenZhao hasn't said anything about this... I thought he said Fort Max was next.

    ^I thought about that as well considering he deals with the factories directly just as this seller. So yeah take this as just speculation:inquisiti

    He's too busy trying to fend the world off from TFW2005's production run of KO's. I only wish I was making that one up.

    (And no, we're not making any KO's ... we can't afford half the stuff Hasbro puts out let alone make our own).

    I'd be interested in a new Computron set. That was my favorite among the combiners I had when I was younger.



    Isn't this KO Fort Max going to be scaled down? Any idea how big it will be?

    Speculation or not, I hope it is true about the KO Computron.

    I hope Fort Max will be the original size.

    If this is true, I would be happier than a pig in shit! Forget the toys inside the box, I want the BOX! I have my original Computron giftset from when I was a kid and I threw away the box (as all kids do). Getting a KO box is the closest I'll get to having my holy grail without dropping around $900 for a vintage.

    I wonder if they're capable of making an Abominus with an English language box...

    It would be awesome if they did. I have been workin on makin a US Abominus box, but I only have 2/3's of the front of a tore up Japanese box. Being able to get my hands on the styro or the rest of the box would be frigging killer. That box is unobtainium

    I think that is what most people want from this set.
