    My UW Computron is still in combined mode, no issues so far. I also have UW Cyclonus from Grand Galvatron and CW Silverbolt from Superion, all joints are in working order. Will keep everyone updated for any changes.

    This happened to my computron as well, although mine fell from the shelf from 2.5meters. I was able to fix it with superglue. I took some pictures of the disassembled joint if you're interested.

    I'd try junkion exchange or FB groups to get one.
    If you go ebay - well you can can but often it's cheaper to buy an entire set that get an individual CW toy. Prices are insane, like often triple whatever their normal deluxe retail value would be PLUS shipping.

    I tried to knock that pin out and it just wouldn't budge. I was afraid to break it so I didn't try for too long. I took CW Sunstreaker apart with ease but Lightspeed wanted to be difficult.

    The pin that holds the front end in? I tried using an automatic punch on both ends, but that didn't seem to knock the pin out.

    It is quite a highly desired set though.

    Only going to become more desirable with time especially after Takara releases Abominus, if people want him now is the time to get one.

    Unite warriors Computron is a great set. I love the light speed and straffe figures as I had these as a kid. He slightly tilts forward a bit at the waist but otherwise a great combiner. I can't wait to get potp abominus to go up against him with an updated grimlock looking on like a proud parent lol

    Yes this really is a great set despite all the reuse of molds. They put so much effort into the details and accuracy that they can override the negatives. Still Scattershot is the weakest of the bunch to me and really could have used a new mold. Lightspeed second. Strafe is amazing though, star of the set and one of the best figures in Generations period.

    Wait, are you referring to the Unite Warriors version (what I'd thought was the immediate precedent) or the Hasbro version (of which "Generations" would properly apply)?

    To me, I would say that Afterburner is the weakest mold due to it bearing the least resemblance to his G1 counterpart and also the aforementioned issue with the windscreen breaking (see my comments on pages 202 and 203 of this thread).

    Unite Warriors is what we're discussing here and it's all Classics/Generations. This isn't the wiki, this is real life! :eek:
