    I have a feeling 3rd party companies are going to have a field day with this guy. Personally I'm hoping Takara pulls through with a decent Computron but it might be pushing it given the fact they've only had to redo one whole limb before, poor Compy would need four at this point.

    There is an unrevealed silhouette from Botcon that looks like Computron, waiting to see what that is.

    It's just a shame that this appears to be all of the Transformers info in one day and it wasn't a patch on last year.

    Is that not just "Betatron" using Optimus Maximus' limbs?

    No, I am pretty sure there is a jet based mold on the left arm.

    They also wouldn't tease Betatron as no-one cares about that.

    As much as I usually praise Combiner Wars....this Scattershot is just not cutting it.

    Should have been an entirely new mold.

    anyone actually bothered to Google a shot of G1 computron? the chest and head don't actually look that different to combinerwars Superion.

    A few more paint apps or stickers and a the correct four limbs (ie the rest of the technobots) and it should look spot on--ish

    I am probably wrong, but if they make the Technobots and have groove as the chest =, they could probably make sureshot into a limb because he matches their general color scheme

    Nah, it is Betatron. There is proper version of that from that panel yesterday, where it is not blacked out.

    I agree! It's only the parts that aren't remolded that look awful.

    Jet mode is great, bot mode is OK, torso mode is inexcusably bad.

    This is a very early prototype. I expect not much will change. HASBRO stated there will be no Technobots

    Is that what they said? Or what the Panicmobile heard? Becuase according to AllSpark the phrasing was Betatron gets his name from being a beta version of a new combiner.

    Did not hear any specific shooting down of Technobots.

    Sshhhh.... don't bring logic here, you'll interrupt a text book man-child-nerd-rage-athon!

    Besides, you're wrong. CW Superion's head clearly looks nothing like G1 Computrons.
