    Woohoo! How do you like Jetfire on his own so far?
    I hate shit like that. There's wanting to be unbiased for your review and then there's not bothering to do even the smallest ounce of research on the product you're supposed to be reviewing.

    As flawed of a figure this was, I can't deny that sculpt-wise SS DOTM ROadbuster is quite good for its size...

    He's what all SS figures should be, accurate and fun to mess with, especially the size. He feels like a true leader, unlike SS Shockwave (Still love him though). Takes me back to 2009 with the burger king one lol. Only issue is that one hinge with the pin connecting the upper body is cracked, which seems to be very common. Hopefully it can hold up over time.

    Had me go searching for it haha I always hoped Hasbro would make one since its a perfect army building robot that can be used for both ROTF and DOTM. Also, loved the idea that it transforms into those ships that were defending the perimeter of Chicago. I wonder if this means its more likely that the protoforms of the autobots from 2007 would get figures as well.

    yeah iirc the review even said the pictures misled him like... the pictures of all 3 in one deluxe sized box, under a listing for 3 small figures in one deluxe box? like was he expecting a commander sized box and 3 deluxes for $20?

    That would be awesome! If they turn into the asteroid re-entry modes they could be customized into the Protoform Autobots, which would be a fun project.

    IIRC there were a handful of chinese ebay sellers that sold Challenger heads by themselves (the dragoon extra head that's much nicer), as extra parts very similar to how Dragoon Driller base pieces were sold on their own or how some chinese sellers sold the Challenger blade that's intended for Peru Kill. I don't remember the names of the listings but with the proper keyword search they might still be around

    Well.... if the alt modes look right, that'll be one way to get me to buy the protoforms. Apt too, since it was a protoform driving one.

    Still impressed with this figure, years later. The upgrades and extras I've purchased help a lot though! Oh and the mods and extra paint :p 

    IMG_1525.jpg IMG_1527.jpg

    That's ridiculous. It was never ever marketed as anything other than three small figures for the price of a deluxe. When they were first revealed even they were shown in a display case next to other deluxes. Plus deluxe-sized motorcyles are not even close to scaling with ANYTHING else hasbro makes. PLUSSS we already got bike sisters as full-sized deluxes (well 2/3 of them)! What a dummy!

    You would need to push out the pin that holds the hinge connecting the backpack to his main torso. That said, considering it's a relatively small hinge, it might be prone to breakage if you do that...

    I'm really hoping the rumour is true. They're talking like it's confirmed
