    Not a retool, but I see where you're coming from.

    He's no more a retool of Roadbuster than Energon Starscream was a retool of G2 Smokescreen. Toys can share similar engineering and transformations without being retools.

    Not a retool, just uses the same transformation, like Universal Evac

    I said the same thing the 1st time I seen pics of it. I don't think its a retool, but it looks like it TFs the same exact way.

    It's a similar transformation idea, not a retool. No more then Energon Starscream and G2 Smokescreen, DOTM Topspin and Animated Lockdown, etc.

    It also looks like a solid toy, so thanks for the video review link!

    god i hate that transformation. always results in crazy shellforming and it's not an organic transformation at all. can't see a robot liftin its entire body on a panel like that and it lookin good.

    I'm not sure. I know I've seen video reviews front-paged, but they may not do mainline stuff.
