    I thought I'd share with everyone a new custom Roadbuster I just received from youtube user rmgoody08 who's channel you can find here:

    YouTube - rmgoody08's Channel

    Due to the heavy amount of Diecast we decided to go for a battle worn/damaged finish. It was originally a Mugen Calibur Dorvack figure.

    I am really happy with this guy and he is the first of my future Wrecker shelf.

    That's awesome. You were able to make a Volkswagen Thing look killer. Great job on the paint apps.

    Thanks for all your kinds words, as I said earlier I am really happy with how it turned out. rmgoody08 did a superb job. I have another custom he did for me, a leader class Brawl which I will post later.

    This is one of my all-time favorite characters. I love that you can get him as a highly detailed model and do this with him. Looks GREAT!

    *nods* Hell Yeah! :D  Now this is what I call an MP Roadbuster! :thumb 

    I'd luv to do this myself but they're just too expensive... :/

    HLJ has one on sale. Doesn't appear to have the backpack or blaster gun, but still, it's the main robot and it's cheaper.

    I'm tempted to order him, I do love me a Roadbuster and this is cheaper than my original plans to make one.

    I've seen more pictures on another site I can't remember, and from what I can tell, the other accessories like the backpack are indeed included.

    Pretty good tbh, as you can see from pic 3 the arms are heavily articulated. The legs also have a number of joints.

    Here is a video review of the figure which shows off everything it can do.
