    Interesting, build quality looks solid. The design is cool but damn the faces are questionable. I wish you can fit 3p feet and a proper Computron head....it is so close to being superb

    Got mine this week and LOVE it. Great bots for the money. My only minor gripe is some of the head sculpts are a little off and the lack of waist swivels hurts posability. For the price, though, they are fantastic. Especially excited to do some custom paint work on these guys.

    Any news that there's going to be a G1 coloured set at any point?

    The white with red is looking pretty slick, but wasn't there going to be a vaguely Beast Era themed repaint?

    Another company that supposedly got the license to use the molds. That company atm ain’t doing too well so they are slowing things down atm.

    Those guys talked a big game and as expected, nothing came of it.

    That does make it look a little better. The lack of an articulated head is still tragic.

    White version, holding by the slightest of friction the combined gun that comes with the KO KBB Shockwave model kit.

    I'm gonna need to mod that head to get the swivel out of it, but otherwise this is a delight.

    I had the white set for about a week already, and despite the figures' flaws, I enjoy the set a lot. The figure/figures is going to be Nexus Prime in my collection (6 Primes down, 7 to go). To rank the figures from most favorite to least: Drill Tank, Motorcycle, Car, Jet, and Gunship.

    Yes, each figure has a diecast piece or two to them.

    I already have MT and WB computron in my collection, still debating should I add this one to my CHUG Computron team? How does it feel compare to MT and WB version?

    A completely different kettle of fish. They're a quirky set of robots. Take this chap as an example. Lightspeed, this is not.

    I opted for the unified white, red and blue set as vehicle modes aside, these Technobots deviate from the path significantly.

    Nosecone is probably the most recognisable, however the rest are pretty unique, especially combined where 'Strafe' and 'Lightspeed' create the torso.

    In terms of in hand feel, probably comparable to Hasbro gear albeit with some diecast heft and unexpected ratchets. I'm a big fan. There's a lot of charm to the team, some interesting engineering and they don't feel like they're trying to fit in to any particular offshoot of G1.

    Is there any other repaint plan for this team, besides the released 2 colour schemes? I like the white-blue better, but want to see if there are even more interesting repaint might come.

    If they do make these again i'd welcome the weapons they originally were going to have - be included the sword isn't the best in terms of individual weapons. (if it's even possible to get it apart without breaking it).

    Until someone else posts one/some, here’s some screenshots from YouTube vids:
    With Victorian to get a sense of scale.

    And while not in side by side pic with WJ computron/calc king, here’s the UW & CW in the same post to at least scroll up/down to compare aesthetics.
    Takara UW on left (without upgrades), hasbro CW on right.
