As war continues to rage across a ruined Cybertron, the Autobots plan an elaborate trap for the Decepticons. Enlisting the elite Autobot combat unit - The Wreckers - they set their trap and lay in wait for a group of Decepticons led by Dirge. Autobot Roadbuster, the Wreckers' heavy gunner, can't wait to lay his crosshairs of Dirge. As the time to spring the trap approaches, Autobot Roadbuster grows restless, for he can hear the low voice of his target approaching, and he longs to explode into action!

Prelude: Roadbuster was available exklusively in the "Autobot Ambush" two-pack together with Universe Dirge.

Remarks: Roadbuster is a repaint of Cybertron Defense Hot Shot / Galaxy Force Exigeyser, so look for the full review there. Just some words on the differences. I was kind of excited to get a new Roadbuster figure. We haven't really seen much of the character since the days of G1 Roadbuster, but I always liked his look and being a member of the Wreckers didn't hurt either. In terms of resemblance, though, the two figures share little more than the color scheme. Both are mostly military green, brown and orange. That's where the resemblance stops, though. A different head would have been nice here, one that would closer resemble the G1 figure, but instead we simply get Hot Shot's head with new colors.

Resemblances aside, though, the new color scheme fits this figure mold very well. It looks a lot better in these military colors than the blue and red of Hot Shot. So overall what we have here is a nice figure with great colors. It's not really Roadbuster in my mind, but it's a good figure, an improvement (look-wise) over the original.
