    I've been commissioned to make probably all of the wreckers, so to start out I did one of my favorites, Roadbuster!

    Customer wants these guys armed to the nuts, and with some originality to make a heavily armed Classics/universe... okay, CHUG type version of each one.

    Roadbusters role in this incarnation is long range enemy detection and assault, so he comes armed with the following:
    Signature big green rifle with bullet chain.
    Shoulder mounted rocket pods.
    "Finisher" missile with long range radar at highest point for locking on to a target from over a mile away, which theoretically, pops off when the missile fires since it would no longer be needed. (wanted to use radar dish but it didn't look right anywhere and was too big.)
    Shoulder mounted long range rail gun.
    Shoulder mounted medium range bazooka.
    Arm mounted short range blaster that converts to chain saw. (Respectfully given to him by his DOTM cousin.)
    Giant Mini-gun with ammo box.
    Twin leg/vehicle mounted blasters.

    I liked the idea of using the 2 rear bot toes as rams for the alt mode front too, to add more difference from the base figure, Countdown.

    Wreck N Rule, bitches!!!! I love what you have done here. Finisher missile indeed!!!

    I'd like to see the brown dry brushed, for some contrast and texture. The ammo chain is cool but WAAAY to clean, ya know? a strip of black or OD green down the center would be a nice touch. Also, the chin/mouth guard area looks a bit elongated.

    Other wise, dirty them tires up a bit and HOME RUN!! Superb work

    PS: PM me your address, for some Impacting :thumb

    I think this mold's much better than the captain america mold, at least for a more cybertronian version of RB

    Nice and clean. The over weathered battle look is so overdone lately. This is a breath of fresh air.
    Nice use of the mold, Is that part of a G2 Megatron?

    I must say, wow, nice work. I'm currently working on my own rendition of the 'Buster and I'd like to know where you procured that excellent cache.

    Thanks guys. More to come soon.

    PMed.
    Actually the customer wanted a cleaner look so i only gave him a light ink wash for some realism.
    Thanks Ax23!

    Is what from G2 Megatron? The Bazooka was part of a G2 Optimus missile.
