    Sweet, that's probably exactly what he would have looked like had they not made him into swindle.

    nice but he's a little too black for my taste . He needs more colors, contrast on him. maybe grab a junker hound and switch out the silver legs and arm parts. print or paint on the color stripes g1 trailbreaker has.

    Nice, If I didn't hate the Hound mold after Swindle and Rollbar I'd definitely want TB to look like that.

    Looks great I wish they would have put him out just like that instead of Rollbar. He might not have been warming so much shelf space at all the stores I go to if it were Trailbreaker out there. Great job, clean.

    Oh and he looks much better than all the Prime to Trailbreaker repaints we've been seeing lately. Hate that mold ugh

    That repaint is VERY nice! Great job!

    Also, when I first clicked the thread, I thought, "oh no, here we go with yet another Nemmy Prime TB custom." Thank you for the pleasant surprise :thumb

    Thanks guys! I do eventually want to add Trailbreakers graphics to the side of the alt mode. I'd also like to add the force field generater to his shoulders as well. But that's on hold as he's packed up until I get moved into a bigger apartment.

    The reason I made him out of a Rollbar/Swindle mold instead of the Nemmy/optimus mold is simple...I'm not a huge fan of the Dodge mold. Also as the Dodge is a newer sleaker looking truck...I didn't really think it looked very Trailbreaker-ish. The more square, clunky looking Jeep made a bit more sense to me.

    I do plan on using the Dodge alt for my custom Inferno though. He won't be a ladder truck...but he will be a Fire vehicle. I see them around Brooklyn all the time and think it'll work out nicely.

    I like TB as a Jeep because that's one of the characters the mold itself was actually intended for. I'm not a huge fan of TB being a Ram, especially busting up a Nemmy for it . . .
