    looks decent, but quantron has my money for what seems like a more intricate engineering effort. warbotron's left arm looks like a bot with his shins stuck together and arms tucked away as a makeshift arm instead of a cohesive limb.

    Love the look on this Computron. He's a lot cleaner and less busy in design than Quantron.

    Need to do something with strafe's arm mode, kinda plain. but I agree, way less busy and better proportions.
    Why does comp have wheels on his feet?

    I'm not going to make any judgment til I see more info non - camera trick pictures. I learned my lesson from quantron and glad I dropped the PO.

    I would say they're some kind of mini car drones or something, doesn't the feet on Warbo Brute become mini tanks or something?, similar kinda thing.

    Ridiculously tiny head
    Ridiculously big hands
    That bloody elbow transformation again. Can't we do better?

    The combined mode's head needs to be bigger! Other than that, looks great

    Yeah, I agree, Strafes Arm mode has a lot to leave desired IMO. Still a nice Computron though, just not for me.

    I'd go with the drow ideas as well, there's definite cockpits on them and weapons. Neat idea, too.

    Am I the only person who cant stand his shoulders towering over his head like that? Looks pretty stupid.

    Still torn on which Computron to go with. My daughter is pushing heavy for Quantron but, based on how much fun we're having with the Warbotron Combaticons, I'm nearly sure Warbotron's individual Technobot figures will be better. Decisions decisions. May just wait it out till everything's out and reviewed.

    In case he needs to challenge a Decepticon combiner to a skate dancing contest. Warbotron thinks of everything!!!! ;)

    Nope, you aren't alone. That and the tiny head and the monkey arms, if these factors were addressed we could have a real winner on our hands.

    I don't know why panda colored them like wheels, they're just suppose to be circular detailing for where his toes bend and the entire feet will likely just be red.

    Do we know if Scattershot is going to have his giant cannon on his back? It seems curiously absent from the photo's so far.

    I thought perhaps Warbo were trying to do something interesting with the feet when not in gestalt mode, like the arms that could be used as "trailers" with Maketoys Giant. The indentations on the front looked like they could also be windscreens. Just one interpretation, didn't think of actuators for toes, which is much more sensible!

    Here's one without the wheels.

    Oh man, trying to make Computron's original colour palette non-heinous was already a challenge! I'd probably colour differently for my own Decepticon Computron, but here's the best match I can make from the reference material.

    Love it, Computron is a really cool design, it makes me think what the other combiners would look like if they had cybertronian alt modes. Computron will never have proportional problems because of it. Defensor could be re-done like this and actually work.

    Are you sure about that? They look a hell of alot like drones of some sort.
