    Hes very good.

    Armored car mode is nice. I prefer "normal" cars. But both modes are nice.

    Bot mode is better than Barricade and SS. Not as good as Jazz and BB...

    Very detailed. Highly articulated, too...

    I would recommend this fig as the definitive movieverse RB. So far...

    Hmm, many people miss the feedback forum and post in the toy discussion forum in confusion. It's understandable, so maybe there could be some visible warning directing people here to discuss particular toys.

    yes.

    just try and get the one with the updated paint apps.....the "old" one has just a red 88 on it, the newer one has the "proper" 88 font on it....its trimmed in black and white....

    Yet the new one is still slightly wrong haha. The 88 on the roof of the car should be white with trimmed black and red.

    I don't think so, as the weaponized/non-weaponized looks clash. I really wished that Hasbro would produce a set of each for at least ONE subline /rant

    To answer the original question, I think it depends on what you're looking to get out of HA Roadbuster. It's grown on me, as I didn't instantly like it for quite a few reasons. Even with my other HA figures, he seems a bit out of place. I think if you're on the fence and there's something else that you want, I think I'd recommend going that route. I think if you HAVE to have a HA version of Roadbuster, you won't be disappointed.
