    For our next gallery update, we wish to share with you this gallery of Transformers Generations Roadbuster. The Wrecker made his debut in 1985 with a mold licensed from the Mugen Calibur from a series called Dorvack – now after a few redecos of other toys, he is here with his very own unique mold which pays homage to the original toy.

    This new Roadbuster is a toy which is extremely fun to pick up and fiddle about with. He's got a simple transformation and a nice, striking deco, and good poseability (I found the hips a little obstructed sometimes though). For me the main draw were the six different weapons Roadbuster comes with, which can peg into different spots on both modes and each other to make new and bigger weapons. For those who like sticking up their Transformers, Roadbuster also sports a full sticker sheet, complete with a choice of Autobot or Wrecker faction stickers. He is, overall, a great addition to the Generations / Classics stable.

    Check out the gallery below and see what you think:

    Generations Roadbuster features a hexagonal port on his back, which lets you pose him on a display base such as a Tamshii display stand

    wow, i did not realize G1 Roadbuster was so big.

    Man, he looks great ~ this is the release of the year for me.
    Wish Whirl was as good an update. (rassa-frassa-idiotic-legs)

    I can't believe how well the nailed the colors!

    Awesome pics Sol fury!

    Roadbuster looks awesome, if someone also gave him recon Ironhides weapons from the movie series, he'd look like an absolute one-bot wrecking crew!

    Or maybe, his own weapons, movie Hound and Recon Ironhide's weapons. :lol  I'd love to see that.

    They should be able to - they're the standard clip-on ones that Hasbro has switched to using in the last few years. I'd worry about stressing the plastic though.

    Haha, with that many guns he'd be all "and then the universe ran out of ammo"

    Looks really good. Wish he was an Ultra class, but its a nice updated version. Maybe I can find some platform shoes type add on to make him taller than Springer.

    Great figure. Hope a 3rd party decides to make some upgrade parts for him.

    The lack of wrists is pretty brutal, and it appears that there is a lot of orange rubbing through the brown on the legs. Other than those two things, it looks pretty decent.

    Looks like a damn nice figure. Just can't help but wonder, are the legs as lanky as they look in the images. His upper body looks fairly sized, not too beefy, but the legs do not appear to be proportionate.

    Really wished the arm wheels would fold in 45 degrees at least. Sticking out like that is... meh... That aside, not a bad figure, and pretty darn faithful to the original Mugen Caliber figure.

    Rocking it out with another awesome photo gallery, Sol Fury! Lovin' those pics', man.

    But those feet...I'd never thought I use this "term" to describe anything in my life time, but those feet are complete DERP. Kinda' like flat, overly long, clown shoes or something... Not liking them at all. The arms/hands could have used some more mold detail as well now that I'm really looking at it.

    Still a nice figure, and in some ways superior to Fans Projects', not seems to be suffering from many of the flaws that plague most of our modern Transformers figures today (Hollow plastic bits, design short-cuts, limited paint apps, ext.).
