Autobot Roadbuster

Transformers Vintage G1 Roadbuster

This is a cool and unusual Transformer. It was licensed from a different toy line than most, usually Takara. Roadbuster comes from the Japanese anime series Dorvack (1983-1984) and was originally called "VV-54 AR Mugen Calibur", Katsumi Itabashi and Nobuyoshi Haraba designed the mechs in Dorvack.

He is pretty rare in complete form as there are many parts to loose with all the armor and backpack parts that attach after transforming it. Also this mold is no longer licensed to Hasbro so reissues are more than likely not going to happen.

I used to have this as a child! A friend brought it back from Hong Kong for me. Then later, I stupidly got rid of it.
