    Such a wholesome reviewer! I really like his comparison videos even if I don't always agree with his outcomes..... but of course everyone wins!

    Finally got my notification the Silver one is here in Oz from Saviers, can't wait and hope the blue one comes soon as well.

    I love how he's a perfect tiny bot for the masterpiece collection but also works perfectly as a deluxe for mainline!

    Just getting into collecting, It's nice seeing decently priced stuff like this to fill out the collection. I ended up grabbing the blue and preordering the green.

    I was having this same trouble. Thanks for the input!

    I got the blue version, as that was my Roller as a kid. Other than this part of the transformation and the non-locking wheels, I love him! How can they can so much into something this size, at this price, when Hasbro can't come close?

    Loved everything except the blank, bone white face, so broke out the paint. Colouring the chin strap mitigates the neckless issue too.

    Yeah, not a fan of the white face either. Surprised more don’t mention the missing neck issue. If that balljoint was a little longer it would be fine.

    Looks good. What kind of paint, and what color did you use. If you don’t mind me asking.

    A random silver car spray from a discount shop to do the whole face, then these on top for eyes and chin respectively.

    Thank you for sharing. Decided to half-ass the process and just do the chinstrap. It definitely helps.

    so i got the blue one in and its just as good as the silver....no surprises really. after having these guys in hand and knowing how good they really are and how well executed they are, i am really excited for this company to exist and look forward to more figures in this same style. the price is bonkers good for the amount of content here and I hope they can keep that going. i think i want this company to ramp up and make more niche stuff. Might I suggest an MP style Roadbuster done in this kind of style? lol. anyone got any other ideas from them after they run out of roller decos to release? haha

    I'm hoping they do something with the gun platform for MP-44's trailer. Since it already detaches its already pushing things that way. I've seen the other posts from MPH I think it was showing an ED-209 looking bot mode but I'd like to see these guys go further with it. Have it go from attached to mobile mode to ED-209 'gerwalk' mode to full bot mode.
