Maketoys Quantron Unofficial Computron

Posted on 04-29-2013 at 08:16 AM by Sol Fury under 3rd Party Unlicensed
Quantron
Maketoys have announced their next major project, following on from the popular Giant and the perennially delayed Chaos Paladin. Next up from them is an unnofficial and unlicensed reinterpretation of Computron, that takes a few liberties with the designs of the team members, especially Strafe. Revealed so far are Quantron itself (Computron), Blindfire (Strafe), Celeritas (Lightspeed) and Metalstorm (Scattershot).

First:



Second:
GET FUCKING PALADIN/CHAOS OUT FIRST!

Third:
Thank you for showing the torso bot! It's like MT and FP are not the same!!! I believe with Giant, they actually showed a wire outline of gestalt mode BEFORE any of the individual bots. hell, I think we got a gray prototype of the whole bot before any of the individual guys. Perhaps with Devastator, with six unique molds, they wanted to keep each member as secret as possible until release. Here, they've shown us a torso and and arm

Fourth:
On the other hand, the right arm looks ALOT like Explorer, down to the downward folded wings on the right forearm. Arm limbs also look to use the individual limbs' knee and waist joints as the gestalt elbow, just like FP Colossus and Intimidator

Fifth:
Really, they need to release Paladin/Chaos. Now.
Bountyan
They also posted new pictures of the Omega Supreme upgrade kit. I posted images in its respective thread.
OptionZero
Who would have thought we'd see MT Scattorshot's bot mode before FP Motormaster's?

LOLZ.

although MakeToys may pull some surprise, I'd guess that the release is a good year away, at least.

Since we haven't heard anything at all about this figure, and these pics seem like early conceptual art.

Again, unless they've been hard at work behind the scenes... but even if that, the factories are soooo behind with all of the 3rd party products with everything being pushed back
MasterpieceMP33
Yes yes yes

Sign me up for it. After getting FP's re-release of Munitioner and Explorer, I need to get an Autobot combiner to even out the odds!
LazyAza
Well its nice to get confirmation at last but those drawings don't exactly represent the figure itself all that well lol
Valkysas
Looks promising.
Nemesis251
Replace Stedman with Maketoys=my thoughts on this...

Lots of details can be gleaned just from what we saw.

For example, Scattorshot's "missile launchers" on his lower legs - those look like Computron's feet and strongly resemble FP Colossus's feet/Onslaught's "missile packs."

We see that Scattorshot has his trademark cannon

As I mentioned, the forearms are formed from Strafe's legs (elbow joint for Computron waist, hip, and Knee joints of each arm limb, just like Colossus/Intimidator), NO PARTSFORMING forearms like Giant.

Celeritas/Lightspeed looks ALOT like FP T-Bone/Car Crash the way that the front of the car extends/twists into the legs. It looks like the front bumper/hood fold into shins UNLIKE the FP Stunticons using that area to split into feet.

Each limb will have ankle tilts but I can't tell if Scattorshot/Metalstorm will.
Saburo
I like the look of the concept art! Looks like this will be added to my list of purchases.
grimeyingo
im in!
Peaugh
Love Computron, love the idea of Maketoys MAKING a Computron, but god damn that cannon on the back of "Metalstorm" looks stupid huge. I know the G1 toy had it hanging back there, but seriously, damn. Granted, this is clearly just concept art, so I'm not going to wig out until there are physical prototypes.
OptionZero
Maybe it'll be detachable to use as a mortar of some sort.

Possibly. I don't mind it so much on the back of the combined robot. It's still a little big, but doesn't look nearly as out of place as it does on Metalstorm by himself. And really, the issue is less "giant cannon" and more "BACKHEAVY."
Alteron_Sheng
Muhahahaha!
COMPUTROOOOOOON! ^^
...erm *clears throat*
I mean... I'm guessing these will be about the size of MT Giant individuals and combined?
KnightHawkke
So bought

Take my moneh!!
Zambot
Yes, thank you, yes.

So if their prototype pictures are on the same release schedule as Paladin I guess I could temper my excitement until about this time next year.

It is not a silhouette but drawings aren't even enough to get excited about either. I would have rather seen a render.
Turnman
Finally a bone! And I really dig it. Was going to pass... but now I'm in.

This.

Still, I'm happier that it's Maketoys over TFC, if Devastator is any indication. Giant was tough enough to afford, but Herc was just way out of range.
hardreturn
i really like that artwork.
darthsutius
Sweet. Maketoys impressed the shit out of me with Giant, so they can count on my $$$ at least.
deaculpa
I like drawings but I like plastic more.
Lots of "Q" robots this year too.

That was my first thought, too. That cannon is HUGE! I'll reserve thoughts until I see how it looks in Alt mode, if it's worth having the huge back kibble, back heaviness, & semi-odd look. The G1 vehicle mode for him was a bit weak, so I'm very open to MakeToys designers improving on the vehicle mode.
GaussGunner
WOW!! Is massive!!!
Turnman
I actually really like that huge back kibble.

The good thing is that the Maketoys art for the yellow giant was veeery close to the actual look of the toys (as in made by someone with access to the real things and not concept art).

Nice to see another gestalt with complex torso engineering.
rodimusea
Finally, its computron and not another predaking!
CyclonuS_ZerO
This is looking pretty damn good.
Tiller
Those designs look great and kibble free minus the xbox hueg rocket thing on not scattershot, who looks like he's decked out entirely for more dakka. If they deliver that with half of that styling I will be impressed. Hopefully they will be functional and not just look pretty.

Dear lord. It's a good thing TFC's offers are much less attractive.
Fort Max
Nice to finally get some idea of what this thing may end up looking like.
Mr_K
Just saw this on their site too

Gotta say, I have never been a big Computron fan as I always thought the vehicles were a little funny - but I am a fan of MakeToys so if it looks as good as their Devy then I'm in

Agreed....I hope someone does another rendition of Superion as well
WreckerZero
Oh man, waves of nostalgia, Scattershot was my one of my two G1 figures as a kid, so I'm definitely grabbing this set.
AUTOBOT215
I'm not impress with any of whats shown because its not even close to looking like the Technobots, they better change this up. So far this whole project resembles how Maketoys screwed up their on individual CONSTRUCTICON bots (except MIXMASTER) but scored on the combine feature. THANK GOD TFC HAS ONE OF THEIR OWN COMING!

btw, concept art for this looks pitiful

Thanks for that, feel free to not bother contributing anymore because guess what, we get it, you don't like MT or FP, we noticed that the first bajillion times you said it, now begone to foul this mega thread (yes people, I went there) no more.

Anyhoo's, HOLY CHIZ! I'm not a massive fan of Computron, but this looks awesome! Strafe looks superb, so sleek and pointy. Scattorshot, thank goodness his cannon is on his back and not where it usually ends up! I do hope that it's able to detach and be held by Computron as a big ass plasma cannon. Lightspeed looks very nice and I like his name. Afterburner will be the cluncher for me, I hope they make him a type of two wheeled Tumbler with detailing to depict that he's equal in size to the others rather than an actual bike. Nosecone should be pretty solid. I think I'll be in for the box set on this one rather than early adoption like I did with Giant.
Zavien
Will this only be sold as a box set like giant or will we get chance at buying individual bots one at a time. I wanted giant but haven't quite been able to save for him with so much stuff coming out, plus I was late to third party game.
Scaleface
Good start... Actually came up with names for them better than "Bulldozer" and "Dump Truck". Good sign..


Now SG repaint PLEASE! We need a psychotic combiner to fight Safeguard Perseus!

Unknown as yet, we're only just seeing concept sketches at this point, hopefully they'll be a box set option.
daimchoc
I hope this comes out soon.

I don't! I'm worried that the rest of the Meanysor crew are going to come out too soon for me as is I think we're looking at at least six months or so before we start even talking about release dates.
