Combiner Wars Computron - So, About Those New Hands And Feet
RAC - Thursday, August 04, 2016


Computron is the second combiner to have dedicated hands and feet - Victorion being the first - but unlike Victorion there's no particularly elegant way to store those hands and feet on the team leader. But you do have some options! We'll take a look at the new parts and what you can do with them after the jump.



The new foot is really quite nice, with a broad base and super-strong rocker ankles. It doesn't interact as well as you might hope with Computron's hips and the technical failings of Lightsteed and Nosecone's molds - but we'll go into that in the full review of Computron.



The new hands are more or less grownup versions of the classic G1 hardware: no joints, just a molded plastic fist. Though, there are notches that look rather like there were once plans for a pin joint for the fingers. Oh well, we'll likely never know.



As you can see, the fist plugs into the bottom of the foot. But where can you put that on the Technobots where it looks any good?

The answer is not a lot of places. It'll keep them together wherever you store them, but in terms of practicality as an accessory or decoration they're not too handy. Or footy.

But let's be impractical for a moment, shall we?


Afterbreaker can equip the stored parts on the sockets on his rear wheel, making for a comically wide but still symmetrical future bike. But hey, why stop there?

I give you Super Afterbreaker.

Like any good anime powerup attachment, he has multiple modes.


Super Afterbreaker, Cannon Form!


Super Afterbreaker, Sky Form!


Super Afterbreaker, Land Form!


Or if you just want to employ the feet, you can give Scattershot back a variation on his G1 Base Mode, which was a cannon emplacement.



So the parts are versatile and fun to mess with, at least!

Keep checking back for more info on Computron and all his component robots and accessories!

Been saving up for a Titan Class Trypticon? Well, there's good news! Amazon.com has reduced the price of the Titans Return figure to $100 as of this writing! That's a full third off of retail and one of the best prices we've seen to date. Keep reading for a link!
To follow up on what we previously reported, More Than Meets The Eye artist Alex Milne returns to James Roberts' story, now known as Lost Light, with this week's issue, #13! Alex has shared his redesign for MTMTE cast member Red Alert, and it - and the explanation for the redesign - can be seen after the jump!
Earlier tonight we shared with you some photos of an apparently early-release copy of Rodimus Unicronus, the new addition to Power of The Primes Leader class wave 2. But there's a bit of a discrepancy with it, as highlighted for us on Twitter by Barricade64. The official images we've seen of the toy since it was revealed have featured aspects of its deco and the slight remolding of the Rodimus Prime head that point to an intentional nod at the Shattered Glass continuity that was a recurring staple of Fun Publications' time producing licensed material for the brand. It seems that isn't quite so much the case anymore. Keep reading!


Amazon Japan has posted stock photos for the majority of the June and July assortments of TakaraTomy's Power of The Primes releases. Firstly, this crushes a lot of last-gasp hopes from the fan community as we find that the Dinobots aren't being redirected to a revived Unite Warriors (instead being the majority of June's individual releases), and no Masterforce-based redeco of Darkwing and Dreadwind is forthcoming. We do get really good looks at a lot of what we're getting as wave 2, including our best look yet at the Alchemist Prime/Submarauder Prime Master. We've mirrored all the images below, click through to have a look!
Thanks to Justin geier who gave us the heads up on the in-hand images posted on Ebay of the Rodimus Unicronus In-Hand Images Power of The Primes Leader Class figure. This first wave of figures is barely out and we're already seeing the repaint hitting the shelves in Wichita, Kansas? Read on to see the in-hand images of Rodimus Unicronus below.
