Head/face more Optimus than Gundam

Although I can see where you're coming from in saying that the head/face of this toy has a sort of Gundam influence to it that's not what I see unless I really look closely at it. At first glance and even after that I really see a bit of an Optimus influence rather than a Gundam influence, I guess it's that mouthguard that makes it look like Optimus to me.

Gundam also has a mouthguard. Optimus' head was clearly inspired by Gundam's and Gundam's head looks like a samurai kabuto with a mouthguard.

I had this guy and thought he was great. I also had the train bot which has a very similar transformation IIRC. Good piece!

That Robobuz is still not out

That Robobuz is still not out pains me greatly. If it really ends up canceled that would be heartbreaking.
Anyway, I love this. It scratches both my public transport robot and Chinese "toy" itches. I can't express how much effort I'll put into getting one of these (A: Enough to find one). Though, I'm kind of surprised that it doesn't have a red LED or sound effects (or both). I also love that not only does Bus-Bot just stare up at the sky in bus mode, the card illustration tries to pass that off as some kind of actual detail on the bus.

Yeah, I wanted a Robobuz

Yeah, I wanted a Robobuz too!

They uploaded a new side-scrolling Flash game last year (far better than the original 3D third-person driving game), and for one reason or another I can NOT get past that last level with the volcano!
