    Thanks to the Michigan group, I found this one.

    Walmart exclusive Track Battle Roadbuster!

    no new parts, just a repaint, But I gotta say..I LOVE this one, possibly even more than the first Roadbuster.

    Orange parts are a molded orange that works SO damn well, I cant take my eyes off it. Car mode looks WAY better. Mine has a slight light paint spot, but its not bad.

    The mechtek is the same but with a wild yellow blade, Its so unique looking, I just love it.

    Im a fan of the original mold, this one is BETTER if you ask me. joints are nice and tight...pretty high quality repaint....wait...did I just say that!?

    Anyways..took a few with flash and then lights to get a good idea of color..

    If your a fan of the mold, and want some color...you cant go wrong here.

    He made me hungry for some tangerines.

    Looks pretty good! Is the gray the same as old RB, or a bit darker? Wish he had a little green too, to homage G1 Roadbuster.

    No prob man. You know what would be REALLY awesome? a Human Alliance Roadbuster repaint, in this same Orange plastic, with some green like Gilgamesh said as G1 homage.

    that would be awesome..

    Thank Primus that someone shot some decent pics to contrast with the woefully mistransformed ones on the back of this poor guy's packaging.

    The orange looks good on this guy. For some reason, it actually makes him look meaner to me.

    In the early pictures, I thought this repaint was hideous... these pictures are starting to change my mind, though. Almost tempted to do what I'm sure other people are thinking, and pick it up, just see if there's a way to parts swap between the two versions and make a decent G1-ish Roadbuster...

    Great pics, I see the new version has a few more emblems in car mode than original, 'bot mode looks meaner! Now if my local Wal*Mart would get this onto the pegs. Looks like Reprolabels will get another order, seems their decals will work just fine on this one too.

    DAMN good chance...

    I didnt set up all the lights n shit, but I hope you can get a good idea of how it looks. The grey plastic IS darker, and looks better. Seems like more paint on the repaint.

    Overall....I just say the orange one is a better looking TF all around. Better car mode..Better bot mode. might sound stupid, but something with that white stripe on the orange ones head just seals it for me...

    Wow, little touches like using black for the joints and some paint on the thighs and "cap" really help break up all that gray.

    I like the mold, but I just can't really seem to get myself to want this. There was a WALL of them (it reminded me of the Tuner Mudflap walls!) at Walmart today, and I was just not interested. I dunno, maybe I'll bite another time.

    I definitely have to get this, I just love the Wreckers. Orange is also my favorite color, so it's a win-win! Now I just have to get out to Wal Mart (I usually get my TransFormers from K Mart:wink: )

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. I saw a couple dozen last night and didn't grab one but I might have to go back now. My original deluxe RB is sealed with receipt so maybe I'll switch to the repaint while the $5 coupons are still good. It's not like I'm going for screen accuracy since I'm getting the 2-pack Twin Twist eventually instead of Top Spin.
