Prime's an easy pass for me, but I gotta have that Roadbuster repaint!
thats not the conept work, the concept work was this car.
#24 Jeff Gordon
while the repaint is actually this car...
Idk why they chose that car, they shouldve done his National Guard car, but sadly I have to buy it cause it was a real scheme. now I hope they do a Kobalt tools version of the 48 Topspin car...
had to do it, I am the resident Nascar fan after all
Love the Roadbuster will diffenetely get it. I am guessing it is an exclusive of some sort. But I will without a doubt, get it.
hmmm I think both Roadbuster and OP are a 2pack deluxes exclusive, as the announced target exclusive Twin twist with Leadfoot
bump this again for people to see what its based on
Roadbuster looks great!
I think they could do a deal with NASCAR and do many different cars
Maybe the #3 Dale Earnhardt Car as Kup or Springer
#24 as Warpath
Adn I wonder if the Stunticons could be NASCARs too
I dunno why, but the gold flames reminds me of the Armada Super-Con Kay Bee Gold exclusive 2 pack........... Still dig it
When I was looking for images of Roadbuster to see what labels were missing on him, I found the shots of the Orange version of the AMO/National Guard car and thought - Oh I like that I hope they use it, then I saw the concept art for the robot mode was based on a not to disimilar Orange deco (at least in terms of how it looks on the robot mode) and I really wanted it - so props to Hasbro for doing it and for keeping the chainsaw weapon too. I hope I don't have to jump through to many hoops to get it.
If they are in a mood to please people perhaps they can finally get around to making a blue, Silver or red HFTD Ironhide Deluxe too.
Incidently the Movie universe calls Roadbuster "AMP" (see the end titles of DOTM) and both versions are Roadbuster coloured in some way so I guess the other one can be AMP and the one retains the Roadbuster name, even though it's a product, AMP is actually a good name for a Transformer anyway.
That "Amp" look great though. I agree it would be nice to make a few more if the license allows. and it's really worth while doing all 3 as Earth mode and all 3 as Attack Mode I feel. I also hope that they give the thrird one a tiny Targetmaster dog rather than the normal Mech-tech weapon (something like the way Actionmaster Catgut works for example).
I just got That Cyberverse Starscream thing today and the weapon that come with that makes a kick butt roof or arm cannon for Roadbuster I noticed too.
i don't see it, sorry. to each there own, though.
wait what do u mean? did u get the normal deluxe prime
I just recently go the Deluxe Optimus and I think he's pretty good - the only real complain I have is that his head does not lock in place that well and it bounces up and down a bit when your playing with it.
I notice the Instructions totally miss a couple of steps out too, and this is an odd habit they have this year Skyhammers are also dangerously incorrect.
I like the idea of giving him the Voyager's gun as It means if you lend the gun to the new Voyager Optimus repaint you have a more rounded Voyager repaint - or you could have an Optimus with two huge guns (especially good for decorating vehicles if you have a pair too).
Shame the 5th Wheel coupling isn't a mech-tech port as then you could stick it on the back like a big ol' jet booster too.
Perhaps someone on Shapeways can make a converter plug or even a whole arm extention to fit on the back to hold the weapon on a crane like arm , would be a nice thing to make along with 5mm to Clip bar converters.
still waiting for series 2 to be released if it ever will have not seen anything new or any new ha figures or generations looks like i will have to buy online for now on.
not likeing repaints to much only on roadbuster i like prime dont like
That Prime is bought on sight.
No more repaints. Wanna see new molds. Where are Dino and Q?
It's actually not a bad pass for the double-headed axe in DotM. But, the fact that it's attached to a big doofy gun kills it. Maybe I'll get this if it is a two pack, as I have neither mold. Then I can get Fireburst for his axe.
Ordered these earlier today, love the roadbuster mold.
Ordered from where exactly?
If that Roadbuster comes out here, I'll buy him.
nope. i wasn't impressed with him from the pics i saw, and seeing it in person at walmart didn't do anything to sway me.
i'm perfectly happy with my 07 and rotf leaders.
while i cannot deny that this deluxe has some neat engineering during transformation, and i can't fault anybody for liking the overall look, it's just not something that appeals to me.
