    I've long wanted this kit but only recently came across a Roadbuster to own, I checked the official website and it seems that this site is no longer operational.

    I'm quite keen to get one of these addon kits so I can improve my Wreckers roster with a more accurate Roadbuster, so does anyone know of anyone/any site still selling this addon kit?

    Much appreciated.

    Nope, not available. I don't think any stores carried it, and if they did, they'd be long gone by now. Natobot himself stopped producing them, moved on to other things.

    Nato produced and sold them himself. Never went to any stores. Venksta was kicking around the idea of doing one but somebody said he decided against it since he has a whole bunch of other projects.

    Venksta hasn't completely thrown the idea out the window yet, but that it would be much further down the line than now. If he does it, most likely after Botcon. He posted that he may be doing a animated roadbuster kit before botcon though.

    Weren't there rumors (maybe from Venksta himself? Don't quote me on thay) of someone else planning their own Roadbuster kit?

    Honestly, I want fansproject to make this "Revolver" character from the Defender comic :thumbs2:

    Damn that sucks, Really wanted a better looking Roadbuster. Ah well. Will have to see if another custom kit gets made or whether Hasbro make a new-mold version after DOTM.

    I haven't canceled my plans for the Universe Roadbuster kit. Just that, its been delayed, due to news about another project I know. This is a big risk for me, since by the time I'm ready to sell, and the initial interest isn't present, I just lost time and money. So I'm basically waiting before I start or not.

    Yea, nanobot got a job and moved (I think moved from the westcoast to eastcoast). Horay for getting a job, but too bad the his add-on career was short lived, cause the product really helps out that figure.

    Is someone else looking at doing a Roadbuster kit that's preventing you from starting your own?

    I can't say anything about it, besides from what I have said already. Except, it is a project that would most likely kill interest in any "classics" Roadbuster kit I made.

    There was also that Kidbash.com set to help customize a Crossovers Captain America into Roadbuster from a year or so ago.

    It seems like all of a sudden transformers fans are just made of money. In all my previous years (not many since I started around Armada) I never seen prices for relatively new TF's go like this.Crap looking at the united stuff and how they are bought up and now things like these. I thought the FP cliffjumper stuff was nuts . This is definitely approaching that level....

    ^ Yeah, didn't someone said that economy is in the slumps?

    From the way people spend their dough, I say the worst is now over! :drunk
