    With all the upgrade kits and also the availability of the Brave Gohkin's Mugen Calibur, I still cannot afford all of them. So I;ve decided to make my own. Not all great, but hope he can be posed with my Defender when finished.

    Still a long way to go. But will be finished surely.

    UPDATE: 29th APRIL 2010 - More colors added with the cannon. Still not yet finished.

    That's really not a bad base mold for Roadbuster, when it comes down to it. I've always wanted to see one done... can't wait till he's finished! :D

    The one thing I've never liked about this mold is that the high shoulders make his head look disproportionately small. I'm not sure if you can do anything to improve that... [​IMG]

    Oh & that oddly-shaped, massively-oversized missile launcher definitely needs to be replaced with some other weaponry more fitting :lol . This base mold could make a bad-ass Roadbuster. RB should be a big bastard (eg. G1, Cpt. Amer. CRX mold) & this Cyb mold would definitely make him proud. :)

    I think he is right to use a mold with a head that appears smaller than normal. It helps to give the illusion that he is a giant ground pounder. Roadbuster is drawn this way in the current IDW books, also.

    that's pretty funny, I've had this figure sitting around for over a year waiting to be repainted into roadbuster. I wasn't going to change the head, though. just a straight repaint.

    That's a Cybertron Defense Red Alert figure form the Cybertron line. I love that mold and I love what you've done with it. Can't wait to see its completion!

    Great work so far man. I've always liked this mold and to be able to make him G1 enough to throw in a proper display is awesome. Funny that someone mentioned him looking pre-beast Rhinox because I thought the same thing too :D 

    Oh and BTW "Alot" is not a word it's "A lot"

    Are you going to mod the rocket holder a little just to give it a slightly more gunlike appearance?
    It really doesn't look like it needs all that much to look like some mega cannon!

    And what gun is being held in his hand? That's awesome looking and i've got a bash coming along that could use a gun like that!

    Must be the Green. Sometimes it just shouts Rhinox.

    Curse the space bar. But thanks A LOT policing my grammar :D  :lol  :lol 

    I already kitbashed a cannon for him. it is in the works. Will fit on him when all the painting is done.

    The gun on his right hand is from MG 1/100 Wing Gundam Custom Zero
