    At TFcon Chicago last year (sounds weird saying last year since it was only a few months ago) I found a lone Botcon Autotrooper at a parts party. This toy had to have seen better days as the joints were loose and it had some major paint scuffing on it. Picked it up for pretty cheap with the intent to use it for a custom later on and well, now it's a Roadbuster! :D 

    So yeah, there's my answer to anyone wondering why I would paint a Botcon figure, let alone an Animated Botcon figure. XD

    As mentioned this is a straight repaint of the 2011 Botcon Autotrooper to resemble my idea of what Animated Roadbuster would look like along with fixing the joints so everything is secure and tight as it should be.

    Very nice paintwork. I'm actually surprised how well that mould works for Roadbuster. But he really needs some guns.

    very nice!!

    That's the good thing about paint, and loose joints....the paint will tighten those loose joints up.

    XD

    Well Animated Autobots weren't really known for their firepower so I left the guns off (plus I couldn't find any that he could hold) . Might give him a melee weapon or tool later on.

    The Autotrooper mold works so well as Roadbuster, I'm almost surprised FunPub didn't go that route when they had the chance.

    Agree with the call for more weaponry, Could be interesting to figure out ideas that fall in with that the 'anti-gun Autobots' nature of the Animated universe.

    That looks awesome. I saw the thumbnail and immediately thought someone bumped a thread from 2011. It's always good to see an Animated custom.
