    Hopefully.
    But I live in NJ, which means these won't even hit the shelves until at least October. September if I'm lucky.

    Yea, I'd like to know too. BC they ain't in NJ...

    and they'll walk you right to the Whirls and Rhinoxes that have been there for two months. DPCI is not toy specific.

    I can't wait to see someone finally transform him properly. All the promo pics looked way off.

    Someone posted a YouTube review online that was pretty well done. I forget who it was but I'm pretty sure there's a thread for it in the vid review section. I'd have to double check.

    Roadbuster I had preordered from BBTS, I was not as into Sky-Byte so passed on the pre-order. If I come across him on the shelves I would probably pick him up. More interested in finding AoE Hound and Generations Rattrap instead

    AoE Lockdown, Tankor and the Jhiaxus wave are more of a priority, but I'd still probably pick him up if and when I saw him.

    Sorry all, i would've posted that i found the Roadbuster(s) but i forgot that i had an account here. I was the one who grabbed both from the Pinole Target yesterday morning - one for me & the other for my brother-in-law.

    After watching a vid review, I'm pretty impressed with SkyByte's transformation. But sadly it appears he wasn't mistransformed in the promo pics (or not by much). That robot mode isn't doing it for me. I just kept thinking how much better my original RID SkyByte looks. I do like that this new version does away with some of the shell-forming. If I did get him, I'd want to give him a nice custom paint job. Maybe that could save his robot mode.
