    Dreadwind makes a far better, and competent, Strafe and those unarticulated wings hampers movements/options with him. It's a huge sore spot and annoyance for me. As for Scrouge and Cybaxx, does that really matter? How many display them like that with Computron? I got the set for them and a quick fix with the PE kit since Takara's sold out pretty quick at the time. Scrouge is nowhere near Computron, he has nothing to do with the combiner

    Dreadwind doesn't even look like Strafe and I don't have any issues with posing Strafe because of the wings either. As for Scrounge and Cybaxx, I actually happen to display my CW Computron with them attached to Strafe. And Scrounge now has a lot to do with Computron since Hasbro released him as a part of Computron and later produced fiction featuring Scrounge and Cybaxx as components of Computron.

    scrounge and cybaxx can actually integrate better into uw computron in my opinion as an arm shield using the 5mm port on uw strafe

    me personally, i keep all my cw/uw combiners with a legends partner, even if they werent officially grouped with one (sky reign gets adventure override as shoulder guns and grand galvatron gets viper)

    did hasbro make fiction with scrounge and cybaxx as part of computron? it hasnt been in idw or in the machinima cartoons so curious what it might be

    The text story "Lively Pursuit" from the Transformers Timelines storyline "Of Masters and Mayhem" explains that Boltax was grievously wounded by Megatron, but his consciousness survived in the Underbase. It then goes on to say that his consciousness was housed in a reformatted body, and that he took on the name Cybaxx, was partnered with Scounge, and both were integrated into Computron to give the combiner greater processing power because Cybaxx could download the knowledge stored in the Underbase directly into Computron's brain.

    Nice, wasn’t aware of that story so it’s cool that they did that

    I got both and think both are really good.

    UW Computron is the best combiner released across all of Transformers, but that's besides the point. :) 

    I'd kill for a UW Abominus. Cartoon colors and unique guns for everyone and it'd be perfect.

    I also kept Scrounge, the single most important reason to get CW Computron. The hands and feet were a pretty important second, though.

    Afterburner... not even close to being a significant factor, even if the CW version did edge out the UW version just a bit.

    Agreed. I didn't even keep Cybaxx.

    Yeah, it's something I would've liked to see in IDW, but I understand bad stuff happened to the Technobots there that pretty much essentially precluded any chance of Computron appearing in the comics. A pity, since Computron is one of my all-time favorite combiners, alongside Abominus, of course.

    Here's hoping the rebooted IDW universe will have Computron and Abominus...

    Ironically, it's those hands and feet I plan to use for Abominus.. I'm just hoping someone will do a chest piece and head, or at least just a new chest piece. I'd be happy if I could get someone to ko or if PE would re-release that chest piece then I'd be proud to post pics of Compy:oops: .

    I too, think it SUCKS that he'll never appear in the current IDW reality:mad: :mad: :mad: ..

    I just swapped them onto my Computron form the PE ones and had the same thought about them looking nice for Abominus.

    I have had my UW Computron for a yr maybe and never opened it up but bought PE hands and feet. Now I'm getting a G1 Computron from tf land and i can't wait to put each together and compare both. I'm finally finding a way to get figures I've always wanted and never got as a kid growing up back in the day of G1 transformers.

    I've got the Unite Warriors Computron, it's currently stock and I'm considering add-ons.

    What are your thoughts on the Dreamwave kit?

    I quite like the shapeways parts too.

    The TDW hands for Computron look great: CW style but not humongous
