    I won 3 of these off ebay...they are prototypes released by the guy making the upgrade kit for universe roadbuster to raise fundage for the final kits...http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/210055-universe-roadbuster-upgrade-kit.html shows the pictures for the complete kit....

    According to the designer they completely redid the particle cannon and it can be mounted on either side as demonstrated by these pictures...the only thing...the targeting scope has a want to fly away..i would recommend super gluing it onto the main gun....the rear breech section of the gun slides back and forth also....AWESOME!!!!! :bowdown: 

    The prototype kit has the main gun only...This thing is freaking wicked....:rock 

    The kit as arrived sealed...this one goes to flywheels...

    Yeah it's gonna be green to match Roadbuster. It also comes with a face plate to cover the Hot Shot face he comes with and a smaller gun. The set really makes Roadbuster look like his G1 self. The whole set is around $30 I think. This BFG looks even better than I thought it would.

    Check his website out here http://www.natobot.com/

    He's the guy that made the show accurate axe for TFA Prime and he's working on a kit for Universe Dirge (the cybertron mold)

    This is a rough of the final product. It won't be panel-lined like the photo just the be clear

    Easy pass. I love BFG's as much as the next person, but they just do not work with the bot-mode.

    Edit: Upon further review, I don't think they look good in either mode.

    Hmmm, I liked the first version gun better. That one sat flush to his arm but this one extends way too high to look good when being posed.:(

    I'm just pre-ordered for the little gun and face, myself. (that too is changed somewhat for more Roadbustery-ness.)

    They updated their site with a final colored picture. Looks good.

    Yeah, I preordered this a couple of months back. I think I like the first gun better myself. This newer gun doesn't sit flush enough with the arm...

    I knew the change in gun design would be a trade-off, but the old gun just didn't stay attached to the vehicle mode.
