Fellow Seibertronian Decepticon Sunstorm has sent us a notification from our brothers from another matrix TFW2005, and one of their board members IceConvoy looking around the Toys R Us systems - only to find what appears to be confirmation of a Computron full set! Currently priced at $99.99 with a May 2016 release date, there is no more information on this, but you can check out the screenshot below.

Thinking about it, Computron is nice and all but I would like to see the other con combiners ;)

I just hope it's not a lazy repaint, and that they at LEAST redo the combined head.

So if this Computron boxset is real... then Scattershot/Betatron is a lie! Treachery! Deception! Falsehood! Curse you, Hasbro!

In all seriousness, probably the only thing that will make me legitimately desire Computron as much as I did Superion, Defensor, Menasor, and BRUTICUS is if we got an accompanying Abominus. I believe in even teams, and having three Autobot combiners up against two Decepticon combiners is treason in my home!

Except that hasbro basically came out and said at botcon that betatron was named so because he was a prototype for computron; all of this was said with a lot of wink, wink, nudge, nudge; they basically flat out told us that we should save our money for a computron. All of that was relative until wheeljack and ramhorn come out looking quite a bit like the technobots, which all but told me that this was happening >:oP

The heads are close enough that changing the chest armor and coloring the thing properly could do it, if it comes down to it; however I agree, we gotta get a different head :PRAY:

Did any of the rumors speculate a a sixth Legends teammate?
It would have to be a weapon guy, right? Since no one can connect to the Silverbolt mold, it would have to be either Shockwave or Power Glide.

Although a reuse of Cosmos some how would be interesting.

Amen brother. I think Hasbro has ridden the repaint train as long as they can. It's time for them to show there obvious talent and start creating!

The present rumor is that the Cosmos mold is to have a release in TR as a toy of Scrounge.

Ok, update on Dragstrip:

I have left him sitting here for about two hours, and then moved ONE of his shoulders, and then left him there for two more hours. The strange thing is the one I moved more recently is actually very tight right now, and the one I've not moved for 4 hours is looser. It's kinda odd cuz I expected the opposite, but whatever. I'm gonna try leaving him longer now, and just like before move ONE of the arms halfway through the time, and then compare tightness. Btw help me remember that the tighter shoulder currently is the left shoulder. (As I'm writing this his tighter shoulder is now almost the same looseness as the other one due to moving it around a lot.)

Edit: I need some ideas also for how to tighten Dragstrip's wrists, because they are pinned in and can't just be unscrewed out. I am not sure if I have the tools to remove pins.


Thanks for everything everyone has said, I've read all of it and will keep the various ideas in mind for later. I still think ball diameter may have something to do with it; but so long as you rock the shoulder like ds is doing an ab flex, that seems to free it up enough to be moved :-?

Which I really want :PRAY:

Having missed out on the mold, I would kill for cool :CON: version to chill with Shockwave 8-)

Isn't Computron the combined form? All we have is the torso. Where are the extremities?

Well, pose him vertically and he turns into a wheel. So a new head sculpt would be awesome.

I won't hold my breathe waiting for this to be a good release, I expect lazy from Hasbro. So I'll keep holding out for TT.

Did you say something about the ball in Dragstrip's shoulder joint "swelling"? Also I am now thinking about just stopping my little "experiment" and instead trying to find a way to fix it. (I have found ways to fix toys before that no-one ever thought of I can tell you.) ;)

Yes, yes it does actually, I really relate to Balt quite a bit, as crappy qc has haunted ~65% of my tf purchases, most of which were post Cyberton, and many were part of the newer generations line :BANG_HEAD:
