    Wow, never saw him before, but his original toy looks really good for that age! I still find him cool from todays point of view.

    LOL

    Always thought of him as the ammunitions man. He would've came in handy in WFC.

    Roadbuster has the word badass written all over. I picture RB as some kind of special covert agent send deep in Cons territory for a top secret mission known only by a very few. If RB is cornered it can definitely fight its way out of trouble. Too bad none of the modern version is as cool as the original. Here's hoping a Universe/United version will be made that can do the character justice.

    He's a team player, part of a squad. More like Jesse the Body in Predator or Animal Mother in Full Metal Jacket.

    Nope. Rambo's a psychologically disturbed loner, whose training made him a black-ops, stealth-oriented "I am the jungle" kill-everything type, despite his love of heavy ordinance.

    Roadbuster is more like a leader of men, a guts & glory inspirational type, the Sgt. Rock "Okay bots, we're gonna take that hill! Nobody gets to live forever right? I'm going first, who's with me?!" guy... though the Dreamwave bio does add a sort of combat-addicted element to Roadbuster, the soldier who can't who can't "switch off", which is like Rambo.

    If he was a human soldier, he'd be the famous, dynamic military commander, respected by his troops for getting the job done, and bringing the boys home alive... but after the war, he'd become an alcoholic and pine for his days of glory.

    And yeah, he likes big guns. :)

    No. There are other companies besides easy company, especially since easy company didn't get a reputation for suicide missions like the wreckers have. Not everything is linked back to some other show or movie.

    The wreckers, like most suicide/death squad in media are obviously based on dirty dozen. A team of disparate personalities bonded by something theyre all good at: violence.

    Bluestreak is tormented by thoughts of watching his city being destroyed and runs his mouth as a coping mechanism, would that count?

    Animated Ratchet has full blown PTSD that's explored several times in the series. You can go right down the checklist there.
