    That is on the top of the worst repaint list.

    Looks like a block of cheese, a portion of which has gone moldy.

    Same color scheme as Universe Roadbuster. People like Universe Roadbuster but not this one?

    I'll decide on this one once I have the original colored Magnus. I kinda like the color scheme, a nice homage to a toy not made or concieved by Hasbro or Takara.

    Remember how Hasbro said when they repaint universe Cyclonus it would be a 'theme repaint." Well Roadbuster Ultra Magnus is what they mean by "theme repaint", Atomic Lugnut too.

    Roadbuster was always one of my favorite G1 toys (Apparently, cause it got the crap beaten out of it when I was a kid).

    That said, I do not like this repaint. But that could just be the fact that I don't like re-paints aside from Seekers >_>

    I need to replace my G1 Roadbuster for an MIB one with all accessories. That sounds expensive just thinking about it..

    I could go for it, but the blue head with the green body sucks a bit.

    G1 Roadbuster, Classic Roadbuster and Energon Cliffjumper all had similar decos... not sure why everyone is freaking out about this one. Tan, brown and olive are all military colours.

    I agree that I don't find that these colours suit Magnus or the robot mode, but the vehicle mode looks fine, and thematically works with the "Roadbuster" concept.

    I do prefer the original colours on this mold though...

    I think it's the camera that makes it look soooo yellow. or maybe it's some sort of prototype. Go look at the pics on BBTS, looks more tan or olive there. If I have the money when i see it in the store and the Wife lets me, I'll pick it up, just for the alt mode.
