New gallery time! Courtesy of the photographing machine that is our site owner, Seibertron, today's subject comes from the much-revered Generations line, the newly released Voyager Roadbuster!

Roadbuster, like Whirl, is an homage to the Generation One Deluxe Vehicle of the same name, reimagined by the magic of modern engineering. Much like the earlier Generations Whirl, Roadbuster also comes with a selection of weapons that use a modular system. Want a scoped, precision-style M16-like weapon? You got it! Also included with Roadbuster is a sticker sheet, which adds even more detail on the Autobot. Check out the preliminary images below, and view the gallery by clicking the link below!

Huh, first Sky-Byte, and now Roadbuster has a peg hole for a stand like Figma and Tamashii. Do all figures have that?

Looking great, nice gallery! :D I'll probably leave a few of the stickers off, but he is a really awesome figure. Can't wait to display him and Whirl side-by-side.

Does the orange armor on the upper legs extend outward for robot mode? It kind of looks that way, he looks a little beefier than previous images have suggested. If so, that's a really cool feature, I'm glad they did that!

It doesn't do that. The upper leg is one piece of plastic.

I know some of the AOE Dinos have them, so... maybe?

Ahhh so that's what that hole is under AoE Slugs tail. I was wondring about that.

Ah, I see. Must just be the camera angles. Anyway, it looks great!

Very nice. Looks great along with Springer, Whirl, and Sandstorm in any collection. Wreck-n-Rule! :APPLAUSE:

You know, I'm not sure I like the curved body the new Sky-Byte has. I wish he was more straight like the original.

Wait, if the BotCon Sky-Byte gallery has been updated, why not the older galleries. For example, the Armada Scavenger gallery doesn't have enough pictures of him and Rollbar. Also to mention that there weren't any comparison pictures. Are the older galleries going to have an update? It'll be awesome if so.

Yep, I've been thinking the same, especially for a lot of the older galleries where there exist no comparison to their mold-mates/repaints and their variants (like Hasbro vs Takara etc.). If done right, it could be a better resource than tfu.info for getting all of the info on a particular mold and character, which would be awesome, especially since Ryan's galleries absolutely destroy the images on tfu.info and actually give you a real idea of what the figure's going to look like in hand instead of the inkling you get looking at the individual bot and alt mode pics on tfu.

The only thing that bothers me about skybyte is those calves... or the lack thereof.
