Custom of the Week: Computron/Technobots by ALPHAMAGNUS
Garage Mod - Tuesday, March 17, 2009

Transformers Garage is on the look out for the best custom / kitbash to feature each week here and in the Transformers Garage Hall of Fame section. This week's featured custom are the Technobots by ALPHAMAGNUS. The five Technobots Scattershot, Strafe, Nosecone, Lightspeed, and Afterburner form Computron in this great-looking custom.

Technobot Scattershot

"Scattershot is the combination of 1/2 Energon Ironhide and 1/2 Energon Jetfire with generous removing of excess parts. His backpack is from Energon Bulkhead. The head is from Robots In Disguise Ultra Magnus. Cannon courtesy of Unicron's chest blaster."

Technobot Strafe

"Strafe was made form an Energon Skyblast. I gave him knees, and reconfigured the wings to resemble G1 Strafe. His blasters are from 2x Energon Battle Ravages and the head was from Energon Duststorm."

Technobot Nosecone

"Nosecone was based from a heavily modded Energon Stormcloud. His drill was from an old Braves combiner, and the treads are from Energon Shockblast. Missile launchers are from the Classics seeker mold."

Technobot Afterburner

"Afterburner was made using Cybertron Ransack and his head is from Energon Sledge. The shield was a part of a Gundam PVC. I haven't found proper G1 weapons yet, so his tiny pistol is all he's got."

Very nice individual Robot Modes. I agree that the legs are a little under developed. I have a spare Unicron waist if you are interested. Those thighs are much larger. I think it looks better than my custom Computron pictured below... Individual Forms (link) I always make that joke about Comp... read more

Agreed. What's stopping Hasbro from coming out with something like this?

More Generation 1 News
Transformers At The Moon has posted the latest in their series of deleted audio and extended scenes from the original 1984 The Transformers cartoon series! This time, they've got over ten minutes' worth of dialogue from "Heavy Metal War," featuring the first appearance of the Constructicons. Keep reading to see the video along with a transcript of the dialogue.
The closure of ToysRUs provokes a lot of emotions - sadness, frustration at the circumstances, and in some a misguided sense of satisfaction stemming from their latter-day pricing habits. But at some point in our lives a great many of us were ToysRUs Kids. And so longtime Transformers fan and ASMzine proprietor Phil Zeman has created the site I Didn't Want to Grow Up, which is accepting submissions of your stories and reminiscences of visiting what was once the premiere source of action figures for children and collectors. Click through for a link!
Few would guess the last piece to be reissued from the original Transformers Generation 1 series would be the music scores. Even though the original cartoons have been reissued, updated and restored multiple times. Fans that have been asking for copies of the Original Sound Tracks (OST) masters have finally gotten theirs, on vinyl of all things. IF, they were fast enough to buy one of the 2,000 copies that sold out in less than 10 minutes. The good news is a second pressing is in the works.
ALL GOOD THINGS…! Rodimus and the Crusadercons have reached their final destination. The trouble is, it’s not Cyberutopia. In fact, it’s not ANYWHERE. But they’d better get used to it, because they’re going to be there until the end of Time…
After selling out their limited run within minutes, Enjoy The Ride Records has announced that their vinyl G1 soundtrack LP will be heading back to the presses later this year! Details and an exact timeframe are not known at this time, but it's good to know that access to this (at present) vinyl-only release will be expanding somewhat. Keep reading to see the announcement!
