Transformers G1 “Reissue” COMPUTRON Gift Set Knock-Off Review

The Transformers combiner Computron, formed from 5 Technobots, is an awesome G1 toy. Captain Kyle reviews this knock-off reissue gift set of the team to see if it’s a good substitute for the original.

The Technobots, the G1 Transformers cartoon, were created by the Dinobot leader Grimlock when he suddenly became super-intelligent. The team consists of Strafe, Nosecone, Lightspeed, Afterburner, and Scattershot, who leads. They were a welcome addition to the Autobot forces as they faced off against the Terrorcons. In the comics, they were part of the force led by Fortress Maximus and traveled to Nebulos before eventually getting to Earth. The G1 “reissue” knock-off giftset is a great way to pay homage to the original toys, and Captain Kyle examines each character for quality.

If you’d like to get this set, you can do so on:

eBay: (there are options for box and no box)
Ali Express: (reissue as individual carded and boxed figures)

Please note that these are not official Hasbro products.
