    I feel that Cybertron Defense Hot Shot is way too small to be appropriate for Roadbuster. Roadbuster should be at least voyager-sized, if not larger.

    Great colour and head, it's just that mold I'm not fond of. It seems a little dwarfish to be Roadbuster. Great custom, poor mold.

    I think the nanobot head is great. I picked one up, and my only regret is that I only got the head and rifle instead of the shoulder cannon. As far as the mold itself, I am not a huge fan, but the upgrade makes it a decent representation. I unscrewed the legs and flipped them around. It doesn't transform and is a little more wobbly, but I think it is a little better look.

    I quite like it! It's the best modern version we have, so until they make a better Roadbuster, I'm pretty happy with it.

    To be honest, size aside, this mould suits no one better than Roadbuster. It's compact, heavily armoured and armed to the teeth! The colours are dead on and even his vehicle mode has more weaponry than a tank. What more do you want from a Roadbuster? Size isn't an issue to me, midget Lugnut doesn't stop it being an amazing toy, for another example.
    I'm very glad i have this toy and the upgrade kit. It's perfect imo.

    I agree, with the upgrade kit it's a killer figure. With how Hasbro likes to go deluxe size for pretty much all of their Classics figures nowadays, this Roadbuster fits in. I wish I had ordered another arm cannon. Looks sweet with 1 on each side there. And I did not even know the hand rifle plugs into the side of the arm cannon. Sweet.

    it always upsets me when i think about roadbuster upgrades. the dude is in my top 10, and when the universe version was originally released it broke my heart that i was strapped for cash and the toy lacked that factor that would make it a must buy for me.

    And then Natobot came along.

    i was well and truly jazzed about the kit. but i had no roadbuster so i actually ended up importing one loose. but by the time i got it, natobot had stopped production.

    so i was stuck with a toy i specifically brought to up grade, but couldn't get the parts to upgrade it with.

    well, then came Kitbash,com.

    their upgrade kit for Marvel Crossovers cap was brilliant! good size and everything! only thing was... no Cap.

    so again off to search for a decently priced figure to upgrade. even went so far as to order the kit. only international post lost it. and then Kitbash stopped doing their kits.

    two times i tried to get my roadbust the way i wanted, twice i failed.

    in the coming months one more try, via shapeways, or renderform. if that fails i'll just give up.

    ^Yea, I think Venksta/renderform has hinted that he may do a Roadbuster upgrade. Not sure how far down the line it is though.

    That's a great upgrade kit but the mold is WAY too small to be Roadbuster.
