    Oh come one, the door chest is a cheat? And it's a cheat that doesn't even look good!

    The rest of the figure, mini-rant aside, looks very nice. Guess it's time for me to pick up a Roadbuster, since I doubt he's getting a tricked-out release.

    I'm not sure what you guys are looking at - but the door chest is NOT a cheat.
    The movie car doesn't have the doors in their normal spot on the car, they're actually dropped lower & moved forward - EXACTLY as they are on the toy & those pieces DO make up his chest.

    If you look closely - you can make out the dark grey pin hinge on the back of the "42" panels...

    The only thing I see that looks wrong is that his belly doesn't break up enough (at all) to replicate the on-screen render.

    Otherwise - this figure is ridiculously accurate... even the rocket shoulders appear spot on...


    And check out the movie poster - looking at the movie car, where exactly are those door panels (with attached window frames) supposed to be coming from?
    The movie render cheats & the toy follows suit - which just makes it more awesome...

    thought it looked alright till I noticed that the door chest was a cheat. Not buying it now.

    how is it a cheat?

    To begin with, the doors are in a shifted position for the weaponised mode. See where the '42' panel is.

    just like in the on-screen vehicle:

    As far as I can see it's the same door panel with the 42 that ends up on the chest. The only thing that's cheated is the windows, which is understandable given how broken up the doors are in the carmode to begin with.

    I'm okay with that particular compromise. The bigger problem for me is the one-piece belly. I wish they'd at least seperated the section with the headlights.

    Wish his arms, legs and face had more paint apps to them but I'll still pick him up.

    Agreed, or if it came in a different color plastic. That beige color just screams unpainted prototype to me. Not sure why they used that over a more accurate shade of gray.
