After the Devastation, it only makes sense that third party toy makers would set their sights on another combiner team. While its not been announced yet, ActToys have revealed some images that are said to be designs for an upcoming Computron set from TFC Toys. The four design skeches show off what appear to be Lightspeed, Afterburner, Strafe, and Noscone. No other details are available yet. Check out the images and share your speculations on the images after the jump. Read the Full News Story Here

Weren't they going to do the Protectobots also? I want to see Scattorshot before I start saving up for this. So I need Hard Copy prototypes not just artwork

Personally,this is awesome news on so many levels. (1)technobots/computron never got a reissue. (2)technobots/computron never got any newer updated combiner toys.

If the limbs are basic or deluxe size & the core leader is deluxe or voyager size. I might seriously consider buying this. I won't buy it if all 5 toys are voyager size as they'll be over sized & won't fit into 1980's toy nor cartoon size scales.

I love the idea of a Third Party Computron. Glad to see some other teams getting some love.

after the work they did with Hercules, i'd love to see what they can do with Computron. One of my earliest memories of TF's was getting Strafe at Christmas back in the 80's. I still have him and have not and will not upgrade that piece. The rest of that set is/was a different story.

I just wonder in what scale they will try and do it in. All the same size to each other ala Hercules or bigger guy in the middle, smaller limbs on the outside? G1 Predaking was great but the FOC Bruticus looks wonky. So we'll see i guess.

I really hope we're talking 4 deluxe figures and 1 larger one. Computron and Devastator were always my 2 favorite combiners, and if this is HALF as awesome as not-devastator then they can have my money RIGHT NOW!

Personally,I'd love to see this 3rd party technobots/computron to be compatitable with the Energon 5-in-1 combiners. the 4 limbs would be basics & have the energon styled combiner connector ports. scattershot would be deluxe size & have energon connector combiner ports.
