    A custom I'm wrapping up for a very patient commissioner. This was originally the japanese kit, with A LOT of armor, i forget his name. I repainted him into his G1 roadbuster colors. Testors Enamels and Acrylics were used. He's very bulky and heavily armed.

    thanks guys

    not very poseable. the way the hips are engineered, its hard to get multiple poses, especially with the armor attached, makes him more heavy and cancels the hip and knee articulation pretty much. His arms are great though, his hands are semi-articulated and on balljoints, not sure if the G1 RB was like that or not. really cool figure though.

    Turned out amazing man, I've got a soft spot for the big lug, can't wait to get my Roadbuster custom finished. So many people doing him right now, it's awesome.

    I like it, I stil have to figure out on how to make a good Roadbuster to my team.
    This might be a possible choice.

    You can't see it too well in this photo, but G1 Roadbuster simply had sculpted hands with no articulation aside from the wrists being able to rotate some.
