    Your Roadbuster looks nice. The only Roadbuster I saw today was painted really bad. Topspin wasn't painted that great too. So I pasted them up...sigh. Same with the only Leader Sentinel...no figures today.

    How did you get Roadbuster's little shoulderpads to stay locked into his upper arms? For me, the shoulder wheels get in the way...

    You think that one in the gallery looked okay? I've picked a better one of the two on the pegs, and still thought the paintwork was (very) far from the best. Such a fun deco though, and I had to buy him!
    From what you say, I'm not very positive on Topspin now :( 

    With lots of cussing and force :D  In many photos they aren't locked.

    I see that Roadbuster still needs paint on the legs :( 

    Overall you think he is worth a buy? I am now waiting for the grimlock customs from backfire or at least his head...but yeah the paint deco of him just seems alot like Grimlock to me

    Yeah if he had more paint he wouldn't have looked so much like wearing car body shell.

    and oh why does Ironhide look so good? It's so hard to resist, and that's after hearing he's not such a good toy from various people. damn awesome pics of him.

    I got to Target just as somone took the last Leader class Sentinel Prime off the shelf. I almost wrestled him for it. Heading to Toys R Us to check there.

    It was in his hands.

    didn't realise HA Basic humans were at a slightly smaller scale.

    I was wondering if these pics might persuade me to pick up Roadbuster tomorrow. But there's only so much you can do to make a figure look good. That comparison pic between Jazz and Roadbuster really says it all.

    Movieverse mess vs classic classic.

    HA Backfire looks surprisingly decent. Anyone else get a Groove vibe from him?

    Syd, GREAT photos as always!

    I'm on the complete opposite spectrum on this, as I was really looking forward to these figures until I saw this photo:

    I'm not really interested in the figures now because of the difference in the figure's sizes. I'm really glad Syd shot this photo, as I would have been really disappointed to have gotten home with one only to discover this on my own.

    Regardless, that Voyager Dotm Ironhide has a killer alt mode.

    Yeah, the alt mode is cool. That Ironhide would be so very awesome if the upper torso was designed better, though.

    Syd's photos > DotM Ironhide :D

    Love them all but not happy with the human figure being one size down.
