    Clearly, the paint applications and the use of chrome effects stands out for the TF Henkei line. That said, has there been any word whether Universe 2.0 Roadbuster and Springer to be made in the Henkei line?

    To give a response before this gets moved...

    No. And there likely won't be. Takara wouldn't do a Henkei Springer that isn't a G1 accurate triple-changer. And no Roadbuster because it's a Hot Shot repaint, as in, a toy from another line.

    Takaratomy will not make Roadbuster into a henkei because it;s a cybertron repaint and they had had cybertron or galaxy force back in 2005 so they will only release classics/universe molds.

    ratbat and roadbuster are perfect using their molds.

    Takara would never ever remake a US exclusive. ;) 

    (Not that I expect Springer or Roadbuster out of Takara, sadly, but I had to be a smartey here....)

    ... and the G1 Roadbuster was also a 'toy from another line' as well

    ... and wasn't released in Japan (as a Transformer)

    ... and didn't appear in any media in Japan (as a Transformer)

    (basically saying Roadbuster is very low on the Takara radar here. ;)  )

    Nope,they won't make a henkei version of these guys.

    Why?springer's a triple-changer right?His universe version of him only has 2 modes:Robot mode and helicopter mode.

    Roadbuster didn't appear in Japanese TF media,plus the mold is not so great so Takara would do better things than recolouring it.

    Yeah,I had to agree too,they won't repaint an exclusive.

    No they don't do old mold repaints.
