    Sorry if I missed it, but this is the first time I was able to actually see him in the store, AND THEY FIXED WHAT I HATED ABOUT IT!

    Having designed the actual numbers on this car, and the scheme I was really pushed away with the ugly ass generic ones they stuck on the HA, but the Deluxe one had the perfect ones. They also updated the NASCAR logo on the fender I believe.

    Now the HA has them too! Check what I picked up today at my local Target.

    I guess that is a pretty cool running change. Can't say I care too much for me to purchase another one.

    Nice to see that they're making a effort to make him accurate to the Dale Jr car :) . But the only HAs I buy are basics,so I don't intend on buying it

    hopefully this version will be easier to find than the older one, cause those new numbers make a world of difference

    Naughty suggestion...

    Buy the 2 new HA roadbusters from a local store, remove from boxes, put your old ones back in, return them for full refund or store credit :p

    I'm really glad they changed those ugly numbers, although I probably won't be getting this unless they never make a weaponized Deluxe Roadbuster, in which case I might get it for displaying on its own.

    Since I'm planning on repainting him completely anyway, it's not a big deal to me. But it's nice to see a change like this. And I'll bet Reprolabels is already planning a decal to correct the first version.

    Not worth another $30. Especially since I display him in robot mode. Looks nice though.

    I saw a few of these at my local TRU. I doubt it'll be hard to find.

    It was a joke. Yet sadly too many people in the world do this. I am one who would never do it.

    The fire blast is also a solid yellow color, and the others were clearish I think?

    Oh I am sooooo down with getting this one. The non authentic numbers bothered me a lot being a Dale Jr. fan.
