    Does anybody know if there is an upgrade kit (head or heavy machine gun) for the Cybertron Roadbuster (the repaint of Hotshot)? I have no customizing skills.

    There is. But it was a small run, and years ago.

    There is one in the Calloway's Customs store on Shapeways, but that would require painting. I don't think there are any pre-made kits for it a la natobot's kit for one of th Marvel figs

    Yeah, the last couple of natobot kits that showed up on ebay went for over $120. I've got one in my sales thread for $100 but that's out of most people's price range.

    Ditto to this request. I would also like an upgraded head for Cybertron Roadbuster.

    He's short and laughably tiny, he SORT OF looks the part as Roadbuster, and the vehicle mode is suitable, but scale wise it's just crazy.

    Never understood why people went nutty for this one even with the upgrades...

    Yeah that thing is GORGEOUS! Those paint-bonds failures are always frustrating on high end toys :/

    Marvel Cap/Ironman-Hummer to Roadbuster conversion is IMO the best option out there. Unfortunately the Kidbash kit has long since dried up, but there is a similiar kit on Shapeways now, and the formula is pretty simple if you can find a junker G1 RB to cannibalise as well.....
