That works... they've already got TF sounding names
Am I missing something here? Why would a green canopy Lightsteed (I presume you meant Lightspeed) be a strong point so kindly enlighten?
And did you mistaken Afterburner for Lightspeed?
This looks awesome!..... if it wasn't computron. Will be great as a radom bot but they had to slap that name on. Without more new heads, will be classic bee and cliff again . afterburner looks good. Lightspeed looks like a generic grunt bot. Nosecone lookd like brawl cosplaying as nocecone. Scattershot is missing his blue face. Scorage is great. Strafe looks good..as a variant of uw ver. Computron looks great....as someone else.
AmiAmi [Character & Hobby Shop] | UW-08 Transformers - Computron(Provisional Pre-order)
Pre-order up for Takara's Computron on Amiami. Just in case someone didn't know.
Nice Brawl head... not.
I'm actually just fine with how these guys look, and I really want that Scrounge~
The Takara versions are just too expensive for me anyway.
If I double dip, that "Lightsteed" is going to be Fastlane. He just totally reminds me of him.
Which is why I'm not impressed with Scrounge at all. They overdid his head with this ridge fin and triangular eyes. A simple design would work beter.
Chances are one can do better a Scrounge out of a spare Cosmos.
This CW Legends figure doesn't work as Scrounge outside of being yellow.
so is the cosmos repaint not coming with the UW set? cause honestly I'm not sick to the stomach puking over the hasbro set. it's not bad. if the hasbro comes with the extra legends figure and it's cheaper, that's the direction I'm going.
That all sounds like it would be perfect for a Bot Con exclusi......oh.... That's right....
That would make since if Cosmos was remolded to have a 5mm port.
Yup...Straight outta Iacon.
Only Hasbro has Scrounge.
So you're gonna be swinging with Hasbro this time champ.
I'm also going Hasbro, for anyone who didn't know. I've already stated my reasons in another thread and feel no reason to repost them here.
If you flip Cosmos alt mode upside down, there is a convenient peg hole where his waist has folded. That is how I plug him onto flight stands, and it will be how he pegs onto Strafe i'd assume.
Not bad, not great either. Nosecone and lightspeed are definitely the weak link here as many have said. I'll still get the set as my display set and UW as my sealed set.
Man, still really loving the Afterburner in this set. And Strafe isn't bad - I could definitely live with him if I needed to. But Nosecone is pretty bad, and I can't stand Lightspeed. Such a horrible repaint. So glad UW has a much better interpretation of him.
Still, wish I could get the Hasbro Afterburner. Definitely a better color scheme.
So why does Hasbro Computron come with Scrounge? Someone please enlighten me! I see no relevance.
My guess is that Scrounge has transforming into a futuristic/alien vehicle in common with the Technobots. Hasbro tends to have a Legends partner for their Combiners, so I guess they saw him as the best option.
Repaint it or have someone repaint it for you. Problem solved.
