    Is Roadbuster worth getting for $20? I'm getting a giftcard and he's an item I'm interested in, I've heard great things about the figure.

    Thanks.

    If you don't have the original, hells yeah. He may have funky colours, but the mould is all awesome, all Magnus.

    The figure itself (minus the weird shoulders) is pretty good.

    But the Roadbuster colorscheme.....not so much.

    If it's the absolute only option you have for getting the mold then I'd say go for it, but I'd recommend trying to track down the original instead.

    I would take the original release over RB Magnus any day. I'm not a big fan of the RB Magnus color scheme, especially with the blue head.

    The mold itself is epic, though.

    Get the original release instead if you don't have him already.

    I think the blue head and pads take away from the awesomeness, looks out of place. It's pretty much Magnus with a Roadbuster suit on, or something. I guess that's what they were going for.

    If they'd painted those parts as well, I might have picked it up. Right now, I'd say don't bother, the original is cooler!

    I'd get it if I could find one for $20. I have the original already though. I would definitely get the original first.

    I prefer the original, but if this is the only version you can get, then it is worth the $20 pricetag.

    If I had the skills, I'd totally bash the head into an actual Animated Roadbuster.

    But I guess for $20, if you don't have Magnus in your collection you might as well. Personally I didn't - I saved it for getting Leader Megatron for $20.

    I have both molds. The mold itself is awesome. Guns inside guns. How can you not like that, Even though the original colors is great. The Roadbuster colors is not to that bad. Of you cannot get the original, I say go for it.
