I am glad that the replacement parts for those that ultimately didn't pass Quality, were included.
Lightspeed, certainly needs to have the head mount replaced.
Having owned only three of the Technobots as a child. Scattershot, Strafe, and Nosecone. I will say, that I am very satisfied with Quantron, err. Reformatted Computron. I especially like that with Strafe, you can place his cannons on the shoulder pegs, in fighter mode, and he very much resembles his G1 counterpart. Otherwise, you can go with the wings. Either way, he's fantastic.
Autobots, all around here. Much love for these guys.
Not perfect, but still a great combiner
By RobsteinOne on December 11, 2015
This set isn't without it's problems - like having to install a bunch of replacement parts out of the box, SonicDrill's vehicle mode not quite solidly pegging in everywhere, and the *super* scary way you have to transformer Overheat's legs (the joints seem strong enough but it terrifies me every time) - but it's really cool regardless. Great detail, great designs on the vehicles and bots, impressive engineering, and a very solid stance when you get everyone put together. All the different weapon options for combine more are really impressive, too.
I'm totally happy with Quantron. Now I just have to save up for Guardia.

This is a great addition for anyone who likes combiners. The replacement parts for the QC issues make a big improvement but there was no note for which parts went to who. I was able to figure it out as I started to combine the bots. The instructions were a little easier to follow compared to the Green Giant because they colored the parts to move in this set. Very happy with the figure overall.
My Favorite 3rd Party Combiner
By Nerf Bludgeon on November 30, 2015
I love the detailed molds and excellent paint apps on each of the figures and the transformations are challenging but fun. The combined mode is well balanced and the rubber on the bottom of the feet make it able to hold some interesting poses. However, what I like best about Quantron is that all combiner parts can be used by Metal Storm (not-Scattershot) in both bot and vehicle mode. There is no pile of left-over combiner parts in any mode! Also, if you want Overheat (not-Afterburner) as the right arm it's a simple task to disassemble the two combiner hands and swap the wrist connectors. That's how I display mine. The only negative thing I have to say about Quantron is that the transformation of Overheat's legs/feet always makes me uneasy. It feels as if they could break if you're not very careful.
could have been better

As others have noted, there are joints that don't move as expected, and in some cases were incredibly stiff. Aside from the not-Strafe, the small figures have transformations that are more complex than is appropriate for the size, especially given that the instructions weren't always clear on what moves where and how. Most of the time I spent working through the instructions, I was expecting something to break off. I've got them all back into vehicle mode and packed away in the box, probably to stay. I'm not going to say it was a bad purchase, but if I had it to do over again, I would spend my money elsewhere.

Transform Complexity: 5.0
Mold Precision: 4.5
Gear Joint Accuracy: 3.0
Almost all the large gear joint couldn't rotate to a perpendicular/orthogonal angle.
I can never adjust the gear joints of the 2 thighs of the middle large guy to a symmetrical pos.
Finally I have to take the spring and gear out to make it looks better.
I don't know how this could pass the QA.
Overall Rank: 4.0
good, but issues
By Adam Lewis on October 09, 2014
I want to love this, but I had too many small quality control issues. Several ball joints on heads weren't machined correctly so one is perpetually askew while another two pop off during transformation. The waist articulation on Metal Storm, the main figure, is off so that it never clicks into place centered, making the transformation to jet mode difficult as spots won't stay pegged in. A few parts on two of the figures have issues sliding into place, and a big concern with the Overheat figure is that a rotating piece is made of soft plastic but requires decent force to move it which will create problems with continued use. If this figure wasn't $400 I wouldn't mind, but it is, and if I'm going to pay that kind of money at least 1 out of the 5 figures should be issue free. Also be aware that the limb figures are on the small side, just shy of the deluxe line, but larger than the legend class

Because I can't stop smiling when I look at Quantron. Seriously, the pictures do not do this behemoth justice. You have to have it in front of you. Another amazing feat of engineering from Maketoys. I will say, transforming to combined mode (DANG YOU CELERITAS) was frightening the first time, but be patient because the end result is nothing less than mindboggingly beautiful.
