WeiJiang Calculation King -- (Their ORININAL "Computron") Review + repairing a foolish accident.

Motto: "Love it? GET IT!
It's that simple."
Weapon: Mace
I discovered that a weird and completely ORIGINAL take on Computron existed. Maded by Weijiang no less. It's not a K.O nor an attempt as a pseudo "MP" version of Computron. Rather, it's a complete and fresh interpretation of the team! Plus it was pretty cheap at 56$US plus cheap shipping. I choose the all white-red-blue version to have a nice uniform look. There's still ONE available.

Right from the start, there's hand-written notes telling you to be very careful with these figures because many parts are fragile. It's true because EVERYTHING is made out of HARD plastics. No wiggle room anywhere so tabs and such can snap if you ham-hand the figures.

Image

The instructions are clear, except for the combined mode where everything is too damn small. Still easy enough to figure out though.

Image

Each members are pretty big, like old deluxes and a voyager from the Unicron Trilogy era. They are also quite hefty and satisfying to handle. The feel like quality. They also come with a boatload of weapons.

Image

I have no idea of their Wiejiang names so I'll just go with their Transformers names.
First, we have Strafe. He look great in spaceship mode and he's pretty big.

Image
Image

The bot mode is also pretty swell.

Image
Image

Here's Afterburner. The bike is so alien-like and big, it might as well be a car. Pretty cool though.

Image
Image

Bot mode is bad-ass with his full visor. This give him some ninja vibes.

Image
Image

Next is Nosecone, with his nice brickish driller mode. I forgot to flip out his little front wheels.

Image
Image

Bot mode is also great here. Unfortunately, because the holes of his hands are weirdly made, the only weapons he can hold are these hammers. And just barely.

Image
Image

After that it's Lightspeed. The car is magnificent, appart those weird blue tailfins.

Image
Image

Bot mode is not perfect, but it does the job.

ImageImage

Finally, the leader of the team, Scattershot. That spaceship mode is huge and look amazing.

Image
Image

Bot mode is also pretty damn good.

Image
Image

The team in bot mode:

Image

As you can see here, the team combine totally differently than the original. Notably Scattorshot being both arms, Lightspeed being the top of the torso, and Strafe being the lower part of the torso. No partsforming here. Hands, feet, and the combiner head are all integrated to the individual bots. The weapons also combine into a giant sword.

Image

Remember those warnings about fragile parts? Well, I stupidly dropped Lightspeed on the hard ground while combining and his arm snapped right off at the shoulder. There's pinned parts everywhere so it won't be an easy fix.

Image

Trying to remove a pin, I made thing worse by scrapping the gray part. I had to find the right part then adapt the thing by grinding with bits here and there. I secured everything with screws and washers. In the end, it took me all morning, but I did it. Now the arm works again and it transform no problem.

Image
Image

Finally back on track with the combined mode.

Image

GLORIOUS!

Image
Image
Image

Not the moste poseable, but it's more stable then a CW combiner.
Here's Calculation King beside the official CW Computron:

Image

Calculation King look WAY better.
He deserves the place of HONNOR!

Image
Image

Overall, despite not being idiot-proof, this combiner is a must for any combiners lover.

I am tempted. But man, not sure. Looks cool though and the price is right. I think my favourite part is the sword being made up of all the weapons and how all the combiner parts are integrated.

For that price, you should go for it. But be very, VERY careful when transforming and handling. Because forcing things the wrong way or dropping things on the hard tiled floor is pretty unforgiving. The HARD plastics feel nice in hand, but this can break.

So, if you think you can handle it, it's very, VERY worth owning. And for the money, it's way more worth getting than any overpriced United Warriors box sets.

I love my UW boxset of Computron. Looks more show accurate too.

Me too.
But the goal of this set to to have something fresh and original. There's a zillion interpretations of "show accurate" Computrons or other combiners out there.
Here, they did their own thing and it's like a breath of fresh air. This could have been an official set back in the first years of Generations, where they did loose takes on classic characters without any "show accuracy" shackles.

I miss those years and Calculation King brought me back to those times.
