    So here is hopefully the final piece to the Technobots. Definitely inspired by warrentan's from TFW.

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/342862-technobots-computron-maximus.html

    I was originally going to use the Voyager class Cybertron Starscream, but this work out much better with the scale of all my other combiners. Still some work to do on the nose and filling in the back of the new wings, but otherwise this was a pretty easy build.

    Now to get some energon ports from Shapeways and finish the combiner. Any suggestions are always welcome.

    I'm enjoying this. All of the molds as well as their subsequent mods are spot-on. Will you be giving the Computron head a visor?

    Nice work there.

    Though the big "tube" on Scattorshot's chest is a little weird. Other then that, it's perfect.

    This is a really neat custom. Dig how most of the bots turned out.

    Perhaps you can make the gun barrel on Scattershot slide open towards his shoulders, expose a different chest design maybe? If anything it'll give both Bot and Gestalt modes a different design, something that was kind of lacking on Storm Jet/Superion Maximus...

    Thank you kind sir...

    ...and yep, I have that extra visor from the Crossfire kit lined up for this guy!

    Why thank you, now only if I can apply the paint as well as you do :) 

    Thanks! Hun-grr is who got be going again, more with him soon.

    Thanks, yea that is just how the cookie crumbles with this mold but it still works I think.

    Thank you...Thank you...much appreciated!

    That is a Skyblast (Energon or otherwise) with his shoulders and nose cone cut off. Voyager Energon Megatron's should cannons and G1 Strafe's nose cone as a replacement.

    Thanks!

    I thought of that and tried it, but I am going to use his exhaust ports as a connection point to add the forearms with elbow joint. Strafe's legs just don't bend that way ;) 

    Thanks you two!

    That is an interesting idea, but the barrel is attached solid and some sanding was done to the original cockpit that would make this impossible. I am thinking of doing something for a chest plate in Gestalt mold, but we shall see.
