    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...

    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

    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 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.

    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.

    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.
