    Does anyone have any ideas on why the deluxe roadbuster toy only has the one mechtech gun, but the other two deluxe wreckers toys have the full aresenal like they all have in the movie?

    Its really bugging me rpadbuster doesnt have all the guns like the other two.

    He's probably either slightly larger, has a more elaborate deco or a more intricate transformation.

    We've also only seen Roadbuster and Topspin as deluxes. Leadfoot, the red Wrecker, hasnt been shown yet as a deluxe...as far as i know at least haha.

    only cyberverse leadfoot has been shown.
    I would have preferred if they released all the wreckers were in "regular" mode

    There was talk around of Hasbro not wanting to put weapons on it do the National Guard or something but it was just a rumor.

    We've only seen Deluxe Roadbuster and Topspin so far. Topspin has a weaponised altmode, and Roadbuster does not.

    I would guess they're doing it for the sake of variety.

    It's a similar case with Legends class. Leadfoot has the weaponised alt, and Topspin does not.

    The weaponized version will probably be better represented in the stealth force line

    um, have you seen the stealth force version? It's not looking good.

    Yeah, I think they just had Topspin. But considering how it seemed to make no attempt at matching the onscreen weaponised mode, I doubt Roadbuster will be much better. It'll probably just be a repaint.

    Eh. With all the back kibble going on (half the top of the car) with Roadbuster, you think he'd have something other than the missiles to compensate. He really doesn't.
