    Hi everyone,

    Sorry it's been so long since I last posted.....I've been busy with a lot of outside stuff, but I HAVE worked on a few customs. My FINAL Trailbreaker is finished and I also have Hoist practically finished. Just a few more touch ups to do to him.....I also made a final version BT Springer for myself which doesn't have all of the racing sponsors like my last one did, but I think I captured the character perfectly this time.

    Keep your eyes peeled for when I get some galleries done tomorrow. In the meantime, here are some teasers!

    Enjoy,

    -Gregg

    They look great. Although I'm not diggin the red on Trails legs. It's too distracting from the rest of the bot mode.

    Hoist looks fantastic.

    Nice! It's ironic how one of the weakest molds of the Alt. bunch produces some of the most fantastic kitbashes.

    What paint methods did you use?

    damn those are excellent

    I'm gonna disagree with davidlopan and say that the legs make Trailbreaker work. They really seperate him from the minimalist Nemesis

    and Hoist looks even better than Trailbreaker, which almost makes me wonder why people bitch about not having Trailbreaker when they could be bitching about not having Hoist instead (I know I know people want the 84 line-up. I want bots that look good!)

    looking at your site now, and I think all your customs are great. I especially like Ratchet and Ironhide (I'm still hoping Hasbro will give us a similar Ironhide if Alternators comes back from hiatus) and honestly I think your jeep Trailbreaker looks better than the Ram (the Ram is more G1 shaped, but the jeep is more G1 colored, and looks a bit more visually interesting)

    vector, that's an actual G1 Hoist head. I know this because at one time when I was looking for a spare force field generator for the custom TB soda made for me using a Bt Swindle, he was looking for a G1 Hoist head at the time. (In case anyone is interested, I ended up with a G1 reissue Hoist for my accessory for TB as it was cheaper than buying an original, hehe).

    soda, nice work on both! I really dig the red on the legs on TB and the Hoise looks great as well! I can't wait to see more from you and what you end up doing with those Seekers!

    That Hoist is beautiful. Can't wait to see car mode pics.

    The Ram Trailbreaker is very nice also, but what's with the red on his forehead? Looks like something slashed him.

    WOW! Trailbreaker is not bad, but Hoist is amazing! Exactly which paints did you use? I'm really tempted to do the same thing myself!
