Do they now? I was wondering

Do they now? I was wondering about the hip wheels, but I didn't want to mess it up before I did the review because they fought me a bit.

Wait- Reprolabels? How so?

i only found out about the

i only found out about the wheels later, thanks to Seibertron

you don't know reprolabels?
they're a canadian company that produces stickersheets for among others, transformers and power rangers toys.
both as replacement for older sheets (G1) and new sets for modern bots such as the movie and classics lines, and 3rd party stuff such as fansproject.
they're quite decently priced, and always the same amount for shipping, since it fits into envelopes.

for roadbuster, you get a bunch of stickers to recreate his nascar decals better

go check them out, i think you'll be surprised

Oh, I'm well aware of

Oh, I'm well aware of Reprolabels. As a matter of fact, I've mentioned them in a few of my reviews even though I've never used them myself.
I just wasn't aware that they had made decals for Roadbuster.

I checked the hip wheels this morning, and you're right- they do move. I had to pull outwards a little and sand down the bump they were over to make it easier for me to change, but they are indeed designed to swing around a little down the thigh. Thanks for the insight!

You didn't get DOTM dlx

You didn't get DOTM dlx Thundercracker ? If not, you should. One of the best DOTM dlx's imo.

Anyway, Roadbuster's quite charming despite his shortcomings ( backpack, lack of paint apps in
robot mode ) I actually like his clean nascar mode though. As pointed out earlier, with the right stickers
you could recreate nice realism styled nascar racer.

Thundercracker? No I had no

Thundercracker? No I had no need to since I already have the Takara repaint of Leader Starscream, which is just the right scale for all other Bayformers figures.

For the most part, if a toy isn't seen on the screen, I want no part of it. So, even though Screamer was on screen, TC wasn't, so I won't get the latter.
