    Trailbreaker here was the second Alternators commision following Ironhide. As per the commisioner's request, he's inspired by Lobo's Trailbreaker from a few years back.

    Trailbreaker started as a Rollbar, and the only original planned mod was the larger tires. The project quickly evolved with new scratchbuilt front and rear bumpers, overhead lights, a toolbox, and a fire extiguisher. As you can see in the last two pics, Trailbreaker's left hand now folds into his arm, and a gun attachment (staight from G1 TB) hidden in the toolbox connects his wrist.

    Unfortunately, Trailbreaker's extra large tires restrict most of his poseability, and make him a pain to transform. In fact, this is the first time he's been transformed back to Jeep mode in about 2 yrs!

    Paint is simple Krylon black and silver, door decals come from a monster truck kit, and liscence plate and Autobot logo decals are printed by me, as always.

    that is indeed awesome. did a good job showing Lobo's some love. Just curious, I didnt' think TB actually had a left hand in G1, did he? (never had the toy).

    The toy was interchangeable, but in the cartoon and comics, he did not have a left hand.
