We got three Scattershots! One stand-alone Voyager, and one in each of the Hasbro and TakaraTomy box sets. The stand-alone is kinda forgettable. It's got two nigh-identical reds and for some reason the combiner head is still in Superion's colors. Its sole saving grace is its blue face. Faces that aren't just white or silver are interesting!
Hasbro's box set Scattershot is better. It has more contrast in its colors, a Computron face that's not just in Superion colors, and some delicious pinkish magenta.
TakaraTomy's box set Scattershot is best, though. It's sadly lacking in that pinkish magenta, but it has the highest color contrast and a buttload of additional retooling. There's a new Computron head that's not just an unaltered Superion's, and there's new chest sculpts for both Scattershot and the combined Computron form. Oh, and two new weapons.
Afterburner! ...Hasbro one wins. You may have noticed an ongoing "Takara's has better sculpt/mold but Hasbro has better colors" thing going on with most of these guys, and for once we've got a Technobot that's got an identical sculpt across sets. And so cartoon accuracy be damned, Hasbro's orange and charcoal and green Afterburner is a billion times better than TakaraTomy's monochrome red-and-white Afterburner. I guess TakaraTomy's has new guns, but you can throw them on the Hasbro version no problem, while also forgetting most of the time that he has new guns anyway. They're not important. The orange is.
So, yeah. Let's assemble my Computron as I please, mixing and matching. Hasbro Afterburner and Scrounge (attached with a LEGO piece) and TakaraTomy everyone else, but with the new fists and feet the Hasbro set got. Huzzah!
