    Well a great many thanks to Alphamagnus, Sculptbot, YourReflection, and the rest of the radicon community for giving me ideas and guidance in creating...wait for it..."Handless Computron"!

    I understand that all the individual bots need some head adjustments and that will come in due time.

    I need some input on what's working for him and what needs to go. Also looking for anyone who is casting or has an extra set of Primus hands. PM me if you get a chance.

    Without further delay, here he is:

    I admire all of the work you put into each figure to break them apart from the others...and then we see Lightspeed. And its like "Uhhhh...yeah!" Looks good so far, but what are you gonna do to the Murcielago to make it look more like a future-car?

    damn nice shit man. I gotta get on the ball with mine. Aprim and I were talking about the mold choices the other day on phone, vector prime is a great choice there. I spent a little time filling in all his details, making him more "streamline"

    can't wait to see more.

    Dude, I absolutely love it. I've never been a fan of Vector as Scattorshot but this has my mind changed. The vehicle mode did it.

    Strafe and Afterburner are great.

    Not feelin' the Sunstreaker mold. :( 

    The Nosecone is cool, but I'm not a fan of the drill. Maybe Cybertron Menasors would work better? Or Energon Primes drill drone?

    I like your idea there because it would fit in better with a classics look. Thanks F_R

    You got it Computron! Glad you like it.


    Not sure if you can see nosecone but his drill is more shaped in the combined pic. Also, I hear you on Lightspeed/sunstreaker mold for him and I'll see if adding a little Styrene will help. either that or maybe a Cybertron mold would go better here.

    Thanks for the input guys...I'm always looking for ways to improve him.

    I think the Sunstreaker mold will work. A few bits of styrene and perhaps a wheel swap to make him look more futuristic will help. If you want to use another mold altogether, there's always Cybertron Hot Shot or Armada Blurr.

    looks really good, i like your version of scattershot the best i've seen so far, maybe armada blurr or cybertron blurr for lightspeed, he looks too earth-like for computron, but styrene might work wonders on it
