Why cant Betatron be made using Takara's Scatershot instead of the retail one? Judging from the trend of takara going for toon accuracy, he will probably look a lot like the chest deco on hasbro's.

Because Hasbro and TakaraTomy have gone independent at this point with the Combiner Wars/Unite Warriors lines? No communication between the two about their plans it seems.

It's one of my older pics from IMVU, somehow the board crash (which I completely missed thanks to a road trip) knocked out my previous pic and reverted it to this one. I don't have it on hand on this computer so I'll have to make a new one.

Youheidx (from the stop motion video earlier in the thread) has already gone ahead and imported the Hasbro version for his next video, that should tell you how much faith he has in the prospect.

I think Will's suggesting that Alpha Weltall uses the Scattershot from UW-07 for Betatron, and mixes and matches the UW and CW technobots with Hasbro box set Scattershot to make the perfect Computron.

Gah! He's shaping up to be less painted than TT's defensor, dragstrip, and CW + UW devs combined - he looks to have absolutely no painted details at all - if the UW line is anything to go by so far :BANG_HEAD:

What the hell is it with you and paint apps? You understand that paint has very little to do with how good a figure will look right? It's all about execution, plus it's been talked about and proved before that more paint typically equals more qc issues

Thanks That Bot, thats exactly what I meant. The initial post felt like you'd end up with 3 scatershots and I suggested that 2 is enough. One can be your preferred computrona nd the other can be Betatron.

specially since I believe that the chest of Takara's Computron will likely look more like Betatron's chest.

I agree. Case in point, Combiner Wars Leader Megatron. He arguably has the most paint apps we have seen in years from hasbro and yet that hasnt swayed Hellscream in any way into buying the figure.

Plus, when we look back at the alternators line, everyone preferred Smokescreen over Silvestreak even though they were the same mold and Silverstreak was the only fully painted figure of the Hasbro line.

In the end, paint apps arent everything. They can make a good figure even better but they can't save a figure. And they arent needed inorder to appreciate a figure. They can also, as steal_your_goats said, make a figure even worse. He was talking about qc issues but it can be worse than that. Look at below and tell me which of the two you would rather own? Is it the one with more paint or less?

The shine is nice, but the colour is where the problem is, no?

The shiny paint worked wonders for Ironhide/Armourhide and Rodimus...

Aye, it certainly isn't show accurate at all, though I do think it's a very attractive hue. Kinda reminds me of the G1 Hound toy.

Also, with a new head that Bumblebee would make a superb Goldbug.

At the same time though, the execution wasn't that good for some figures, which is the big gripe. Sunsteaker and Dragstrip just look so plain it hurts. Takara's Defensor also looked disappointing as it gave up some paint applications on the chest and thighs and just colored it plain to match the animation model, which really did not flatter the figure. As a result, the Hasbro version to us looked much better since the paint made the figures look less bland and did not ignore some molded in detail. :MAXIMAL:

Hasbro was plain too, but on different ones. Did you know that Hasbro's Wheeljack was part of a band? They are called the Plain White Ts :lol:

Yeah, no way I'm defending that hideously unpainted mess.
