    Yeah, in car mode on mine, the tab for the rear passenger wheel section (the right shoulder) just won't go in. I'm going to shave the peg on that grey piece down a bit, because I'm not forcing it, getting it stuck and then snapping the peg.

    What a nightmare of a figure to handle the first time...

    Bring your future and shave those front tabs down a quarter or you’ll be cursing at this thing.

    I think I got really lucky with his figure. The front tabs in pretty well after transforming once but the left shoulder doesn't tab in at all. I dont really care since it's not obvious at all. Personally I find him to be the best looking in the wave and most enjoyable. Shatter would be the most playable imo. No bee yet. And busters back also tabs in well with a nice click. I think they fixed the problems since I got him just yesterday with a second production run.

    Just received my SS Roadbuster and play with it for a bit.

    Ehh..... I'll say that this is just an average figure at best. This figure kinda reminds me of SS Lockdown in a few certain aspects; The sculpting is good, the robot mode looks nice from the front, the alt mode is sweet, but articulation in bot mode is limited at best, the entire back of the figure is nothing but the entire alt mode shell folded, and a transformation that manages to be both boring and frustrating at times.

    And also, I find myself having quite a hard time pegging the front section of the vehicle mode together; During my first 2 attempts of the transformation, I have spent like 5-6 minutes just to get the front and the windshield tabbed together, which doesn't makes for a fun play experience.

    I remember being so excited to see that when I was waiting for the film release. I reenacted so many imaginary fights with my roadbuster, topspin and crankcase figs.
