    Nice looking (and nicely sized) figure. Is it Scattershot or Scattorshot, though?

    Should be Scattershot. People go overboard on the "or" these days, when it wasn't all *that* common in G1.

    This doesnt resemble Scattershot to me, it has a TF Victory-ish look to it for some reason. reminds me of Deathsaurus ...

    Did make me think scattershot when I saw it, but I did like the bot fork none the less, however when did scattershot carry a pair of axes?

    Changed spelling. Sorry, ever since Cybertron Scattorshot, that name always has me second guessing which was is the correct way :)

    Really liking these individual modes... The only thing holding me back on this set is that these are pure S3 characters. I'm trying to limit my MP's to S1 and S2 though I am open to some of the movie cast being included since they're still technically not S3.

    I can make concessions as above but the Technobots were made by Grimlock is a post death of Prime setting. No way you can shoehorn that into the S1-movie continuity. They were made out of Unicron brain bits!

    Anyway, that's me thinking out loud.

    Back to the figure: love it.

    Combined form I think goes to MakeToys but this is probably a more accurate G1 interpretation. Anyway, happy for those that take the plunge.

    Warbo-dudes, howabout a better Superion and/or Defensor? Please?

    Hmm, not really digging the combiner as a whole but this figure is pretty great on its own, might just pick him up alone.

    scattershot looks interesting. Lots of nods to the original G1 toy.

    he needs that light blue visor to look more "techy"

    When did Computron carry a Bow to become Robin Hood?

    Wow that guy is massive!
    It looks good but it will be too big for my taste. But hey he looks more like the respective character then their first outing.
    Good job Warbot guys.
    Maketoys for me!

    He's a classics style combiner. He can have a bow just like classics Prime has a wind vane gun, classics Grimlock can have a tail-whip and so forth. That is the point of classics.

    Apparently Warbotron are aiming these at MP collections, but not making them G1 which is the whole aim of the MP line. So yes, the axes are out of place.

    And where the hell is his altmode? I'm still leaning toward MakeToys, but I'm not writing WB off just yet...

    Man, that thing looks Cybertron-y as all hell. Kinda neat in a nostalgic sense, but also pretty boring.

    Too plain, looks like a generic robot.

    Where's the big cannon on his back? Given how slavish Not-Afterburner is to the G1 model though i'm not too worried.

    A masterpiece sized Computron is basically a wet dream for me. Cannot wait!

    It is interesting, with Afterburner being so on-the-nose, that Scattershot here seems so different from his G1 counterpart. No enormous cannon on his back, no wings on his legs... it's a good looking toy, but the chest shield and head-shape alone just don't quite convey him as well as I'd hope it to; maybe it will when it's in color, if it has the blue face.
