    Does anyone know where I could find one?
    I was thinking of getting a Universe Roadbuster but I feel like it needs the kit.

    Stopped making them after like 1 run. Now super rare and expensive for what it actually is.

    That was a limited run project by Nato-Bot. Your only chance is on the aftermarket, and prices for this set have become extremely inflated.

    Yes, I have it and yes it awesome. Big G1 Roadbuster fan so it was a no-brainer. I had no idea it was rare now, how much is it going for?

    Here's some pics:

    LOL Thanks. I always try to get right in on the pre-orders for stuff like this, even if I have to pay way in advance. The set in my sig for example, by forum member Maidenjapan was another favorite of mine.
    We have some pretty talented people on this forum, I could never do these things myself.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. I got those pile drivers too. They're way better then the Crazydevy ones..

    I don't remember why I didn't get this Rodbuster set though... I've been kicking my ass on that decision for years now.

    Yup, it is on shapeways, or was, but you have to paint it yourself. I have the Nano head/gun. My only regret is that I didn't order the whole kit with the shoulder cannon, but even the head really makes the figure.
