More shelf warming fodder. Like any child gives a squat about either of these characters.

Roadbuster gives me nostalgia too... of being so happy my parents didn't buy him! I got Whirl as a surprise bonus Christmas gift back in '85 along with the other TFs I asked for... and boy was I pissed! I was like why the heck did my parents pick up this guy? He's not even on the cartoon! It could have been worse though, they could have brought me Whirl AND Roadbuster! For the record, I didn't play with Whirl and I didn't give him away either. I didn't want to seem like an ingrate.

About time! Ought to stop by the three retailers I frequent to see if any of them have Roadbuster. Might get Sky-Byte to square off against Rhinox, them being from two different series notwithstanding.

Wow. Your life sounds terrible. Even when toys were G1, there was no pleasing you.

Yes, it was hell dealing with uncoordinated parents. Particularly my father who had Sideswipe and Sunstreaker in each hand at a Black Friday style mob scene in TRU, but lost Sunstreaker because he needed a free hand to grapple on the floor with another parent.

Because it was a Transformers toy and they knew you liked Transformers?

If we go by the "shelf warming" logic, then kids must not give a crap about Bumblebee either. >:oP

So you got all the TF's you wanted for Christmas, plus Whirl as a "bonus" ? What's to be pissed about ? I could understand if you got just Whirl and not the TF's you wanted. But getting more is bad ? :BANG_HEAD:

Whirl was an AUTObot with a helicopter alt-mode with no excuse or explanation why he was not an automobile. BIG no no in my book. What's worse is that neither Whirl or his buddy Roadbuster were on the cartoon. When I got new figures they weren't allowed to "play" with the other Transformers until they made an appearance on the cartoon. I had to make sure their personalities and voices were just right or everything would turn out wrong! THIS is the reason why Roadbuster will provide body heat for the shelves all winter! If you're not a UK comic fan you probably don't care about Roadbuster. They shoulda sent this guy over to England or somewhere...

I ask this without being an ass, nor meant to be offensive; Are you Okay? Do you have some kinda O.C.D that's gone untreated? I am genuinely concerned :-(

Dear god. It's worse than we thought. It's type 5 GEEWUNNER syndrome. The only cure is exposing the patient to repeated doses of Fire on the Mountain, City of Steel, B.O.T. and Carnage in C-Minor until the rose-tinted glasses are ready to be excised with a Cybertron Optimus Prime toy.

Mental handicaps are no laughing matter. I too am curious what exactly is going on in his head. There are signs, but I'm not applying labels just yet, better leave that to the professionals.

Sorry, didn't intend to cause offence.

Clarification:

[spoiler="Explaining the joke"]I don't think he's got anything wrong with him. I just think he's a silly person who likes the original cartoon a little bit too much. That's what I was insinuating- that he is not mentally ill but merely a bit crazy.[/spoiler]
