    Wrecker: Roadbuster- Fully Armed

    Weapons Update:

    How do you know if you have enough guns on a TF? Well, are his hands empty? Can you see both of his shoulders? :lol 

    Rounding of the rest of the Kidbash Kit, I added a Chain-fed Heavy Chain Gun with an Ammo pack that attaches to the forearm (made from GI Joe ROTC Heavy Duty figure) and a shoulder mounted Rocket launcher with am Incendiary missile.

    I also managed to add a custom "Wreck N Rule" decal to the arm mounted ammo pack for his chain gun.

    Thanks to my good friend, rival and all around pimp Nemesis Predaking, I was able to get my hands on one of the Kidbash Roadbuster kits! I missed the window when he stopped selling them. It really turns ol' Cap into our favorite combat bot, Roadbuster.

    The only addition I made was the ammo chain that runs from his antenna/ammo pack to his cannon. It reminded me more of the IDW art for Roadbuster.

    Nice... I've got a small RB head and the large G1 RB head, and I haven't quite decided which to use on this custom. Little one looks pretty good.

    Great paint work. Looks badass all the way! :)

    The addition of the ammo belt really adds to the militaristic character of the figure.
    Also, I like the hood in alt mode. It has an eye-drawing quality to it.

    One question though. I don't own the mold, but is the alt mode really that loose-looking in the middle?

    I love your BFG on this guy, man. Thanks good buddy.

    I have the G1 head as well! I thought the smaller head made him look stockier overall, but that's just my craziness.

    No, just due to me. I added the ball joint to the bottom of the head and the socket to the actually head plat form. The bottom of that ball joint causes the roof/hood not to be 100% flush in Alt mode, which causes the issue with the top of the doors in Alt mode. If you have a look at my Impactor from the same mold, you don't see that issue:

    [​IMG]

    However adding the socket for the ball joint into such a small head is an issue as well. I feel the slightly misaligned mid section is worth the sacrifice. Good eye as always, man. :thumb 

    Thanks so much, man. Hmmm...is that Predaking on my desk?????

    :thumb  Thanks, hombre.
