    This one is color matched to the UW set. They (stealthily) created both UW and CW sets for Bruticus and Defensor - not impossible they make a CW kit, in which case that'd be cool

    Anyone know where I can still cop a Takara Computron set? This is nice, just wish it came with a nice cool gun for him.

    And these companies still dont make anything that lock the elbow legs together.

    It wasnt a huge problem with Superion but, the Carbots are fiddly.

    Rippersnapper is a fucking pain to pose.

    The only bits I'm interested in from this set are the thigh fillers. Everything else is way too over-greebled for my tastes.

    I've actually spent a lot to upgrade my base Tak Computicon. Right now I've a Shapeways G1 head and gun, Shapeways parts to turn a Rook into a Nosecone, a Hasbro Afterburner and Scattershot (that fits better with my PE chestplate) and Hasbro fists/feet. All i need are some sort of thigh filler to fix those ridiculous stick thighs (i don't mind them on Superion because the G1 Supe toy had stick thighs, but dang do they look like ass on Computron).

    Nice set; really like the hands (I like how they retained the missile knuckle look) and the thigh fillers, but i don't see the chest piece as necessary. I really like the chest detailing on UW computron, and have no desire to cover it up.

    I may just order the set and just throw the chest on CW computron (I grabbed that set on the cheap even though I had the UW version). Now, if I only had another head to throw on the cw version, he'd be legit.

    Wow, this looks great. I hope these guys do one for both PotP Terrorcons (I admit I'd be tempted to combine the recently announced up-sized Dinos of they do a set for them too.)
    Really? Where'd you get it? I desparately a UW version but that's so expensive now I may just have to grab the Hasbro one instead if see it a good price.

    You can use the armor to hold his legs together. You cvan sort of see it in this pic.

    TrashK on Instagram: “Dreadwind showing up in custom leg combined modes.”

    And here as a leg:

    TrashK on Instagram: “Playing around with lighting and bigger items. Did I mention that this is by far my favorite combiner torso ever released?”
