    Looks like they made some tweaks. If you compare the two the new drawing has less kibble hanging off his legs and arms.

    I'll admit it's frustrating not seeing more progress with this but I don't mind. I'm willing to let Dream Factory take their time with these and get them right. I LOVE Roadbuster and I'm a huge Dale Earnhardt Jr. fan so I'm going to pick this up regardless.

    As with all Dream Factory products I'm happy we're seeing updates at all. Their working on stuff. Slower than some would like but it's progress nonetheless.

    The one on the first page? Pretty sure that's just a "custom" made from the original that they're gonna base it off of. Seems like they're taking a page from Wei Jiang and basing it off a custom - albeit in this case, said custom being designed by Dream Factory themselves instead of being a borrowed/leased design (like with Commander/Detective/Firage) which exists for the express purpose of being a mock-up for the mass production version - they build an improved version from the original, model it digitally, and (hopefully) produce it.

    At least, that's what I'm assuming.

    The model is well made, even in advertising logos... but there are two details that do not convince me: the Gatling cannon too small, and the machine guns on the bonnet too big (in the real car of the film, it's quite the opposite)... and like Topspin, even Roadbuster has the TF3 logo on the bonnet!

    The machine guns on top are obviously a concession for durability purposes. If they were properly scaled, they'd snap like matchsticks. I'll give you the gatling.
