Shhh don't tell Botcon


Recommended Posts

I picked up Classics Onslaught yesterday and while I was looking it over ...as I do with anything new I get I thought


"You know I know a good repant for him....repaint him as Roadbuster"


I don't know if all you know who the G1 roadbuster was


In the era of diecast he was one of the first plastic transformers and he was tall, even taller then Prime but not as tall as Shockwave of Skyfire


Basically Roadbuster has a similiar face to Onslaughts and with a little modification and some of Roadbusters orange,brown and green paint we got a nice looking repaint


We know the Sideswipe/Suntreaker mold is perfect for Punch /Counterpunch but other molds might get done like


Prowl/Bluestreak mold as Smokscreen


Ironhide/Ratchet mold as Towline




But i'm very surprised we didn't get the Seeker mold on Sunstorm yet


And if a representative from botcon is looking on


The Roadbuster idea is mine and I would like one :P

Like AA said, animated magnus is being repainted as roadbuster, so I doubt there'll be two homages to the same g1 character.


Supposedly an "inside source" has confirmed that animated roadbuster magnus is in fact in g1 roadbuster colors.

OMG that is so stupid


Anyways I don't care for it plus who says that Onslaught will not ever be repainted as Roadbuster


There is a Target two pack coming out where they repainted Hot Shot from the Cybertron defence team as Roadbuster


Don't be naysayers who says it will not be done?


Where did you find out this news and why wasn't it posted here?

So now there'd be three roadbuster homages?


I'm not saying it's not a good idea wheeljack, I think it makes some sense, but that's a lot of homages to a pretty obscure character.


I guess it wasn't posted here bc "The Wire" has been slacking off. :P

I'm just saying its highly unlikely, thanks to the UM repaint and the 2-pack Roadbuster you mentioned. It's not likely the would revisit the same paint scheme three times around the same time period, but you never know.


Roadbuster Ultra Magnus was listed in Wal-Mart computers a few weeks ago and someone over at the Allspark who recently toured Hasbro's offices saw leader Magnus painted up in roadbuster's color scheme.

Who ever thought of the Roadbuster Ultra Magnus was an idiot IMO


Why would anybody come up with his colors on Ultra Magnus?


That repaint wouldn't work as well as this


Oh yeah I should know better these are the same idiots who painted Powerglide white instead of red


For sure now Botcon will possibly have this as an exclusive

Ok moving on.....


I picked up Classics Powerglide


Now here is a string candidate for a GI Joe Transformer


He could be repainted as a Rattler and if the same head mold is ket and painted right he could be a Cobra Trooper

I was just thinking about that the other day. :) I didn't bring it up because most of us do not care too much for the crossovers, but if they made that, I would buy several of them. Hell, I'm tempted to buy a Powerglide and customize it.
