    The Happywell site just updated their page with new a Road Bot that is a yellow Hummer H2... The scale is 1:18like many of the others are... Here's a list of Road Bots thus far:

    1:18 Silver Toyota Land Cruiser
    1:18 Yellow Toyota Supra
    1:18 Silver Toyota MR2
    1:18 Blue Toyota Celica
    1:18 Red Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII
    1:18 Yellow Hummer H2
    1:12 Black Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX
    1:12 Yellow Ford GT

    I will be contacting Curt over at TFSource to see if he's willing to pick up this line for those of us who are VERY interested in having these...

    Here are the pics of the H2... Enjoy...

    oh shit!

    thats not bet actually. better keep my eyes open on that local shop that brings these in. i dont dig the scale for the cars, but in this case, a hummer, i might make an exception.

    the legs looks brick-ish tho.

    Yeah, I'd buy one of those. That's really, really impressive. I like the way that Humvee looks.

    Is that weapon a battlehammer or meat tenderizer? You be the judge.

    I just e-mailed Curt over at TFSource in hopes that he'll pick this line up... I'll let you guys know what develops...

    Speaking for myself, I would SOOO get ALL the Road Bots... Why??? Because all of a sudden, the Autobot/Decepticon ratio for my ALT collection would be more evened out... 8 Road Bots that will be Decepticons+6 ALT Decepticons=14 total ALT Decepticons which will match up MUCH better with the 20 Autobots ALTs...

    Can we say Shockwave's Shocktroopers???:rock :

    These are really cool. I hope to get them some day myself. I agree about the torso, but fuck, hardly any transforming toy is totally perfect eh?

    These look sweeeet, but darn they beat Has/Tak to the Hummer 2. If they were Has/Tak Transformers I'd be all over them but I don't have too many extra funds these days on the eve of the new Transformers Movie.

    Hey, stupido :) 
    They're 1:18 scale (bigger than Alternators) Transforming toys that are appreantly licensed from the official manufacturers, like Alternators. Supposedly Big Lots, which carries some other Happy Well junk, was going to pick them up, but that was probably just a rumor. Reviews have been fairly positive, but they're hard to find at all in the States.

    And put me down on the list for who'd buy 'em The EVO is hot, and the H2 ain't bad, either.

    That Hummer actually looks cool.

    Word of advice though: these are worse than they look on the pics, but way better than your average KO.

    EDIT: Decided to add some of my pics so those who are not familiar with Roadbots can see one next to Alts, 20th Prime and some G.I.Joes:

    the one thing that intrigues me, is that pretty much every happywell road bot has had its transformation based off an alternator, with some changes. We knew about the happy well GT and saw its transformation before we heard about mirage existing IIRC...*could* this be a glimpse into the future?

    I'm guessing the Hummer will be close to size with the Land Cruiser.

    OMG!!!!!!!!

    these road bots kick all kind of ass. and there 1:18!!! I wish I could find the. Ive checked ebay from time to time to and no luck

    I dont want the 1:12 ones. thats WAY too big lol but the 1:18 ones are awesome, and match my other 80+ diecast model cars :) 

    p.s. that silver truck is the worst of them all, total crap IMO but the rest are awesome :)

    That hummer would make a great body for kitbashing either Grimlock or Megatron. Pretty much to scale with MP Prime...
