The release of Combiner Wars Scattershot back in 2015/2016 was the reason that I started customizing combiners. First thought when Scattershot came out was: I like the bot-mode. I like the alt-mode, but who the F... is Betatron ?!! I think many TF-fans shared that feeling back then. So ideas came to mind of how to create my own Computron. I started with Strafe and although Air Raid was the best figure for bot and alt mode, I decided to use Firefly. Because for me this figure had the best possibility to store the 2 orange guns to create this characteristic Computron look. Second I started with Nosecone. But how to create the drill look? I thought the nose of Firefly/Blast Off figure could settle for this conical look (only facing upwards), so I used a Blast Off figure to create Nosecone. Next figure was Afterburner. I wanted to use a Dragstrip figure but ran into a ball joint problem swapping heads with other Deluxe figures (I hadn't dicovered Steam Shield's Bot Foundry back then) ending up with an Alpha Bravo figure as Afterburner. These were my first 3 custom figures ever. For the fouth limb I temporarely put an Ironhide figure there for the simple reason that he was red. Only for the time being because other Deluxe figures were going to be released. In the beginning I also used white stickers on Scattershot's legs just to see how the colors would turn out, later I did the actual white painting. This was the first 'prototype' of my version of Computron. Later I replaced all 4 limbs with better looking Deluxe figures, much more Computron like. But I'll show that later in another thread in which I'll show 5 different version of Computron (3 customs along with Hasbro and Takara).
