    This isn't anything too special but it's my Trailbreaker. I bought the Reprolables set from a friend of mine for $6 and I just got a Nemesis Prime from a trade so I did this. I have always planned to make this once I got a Nemesis Prime cuz I'd rather have a Trailbreaker than NP. I took the silver off of Swindle's face to make it black and I painted the eyes light blue cuz I like the toon version with blue eyes better than the red eyed toy version. I glued a flat piece of plastic to the back of the Swindle head I used so I could fill it with silly putty to make it stay. Silly putty isn't the best thing to use but it's a really easy (lazy) way to fill heads that don't fit. I also used SP to make the gun in his hand stay

    Here's a quick look at my Swindle with no doors and no rollbar cuz I have so many Jeeps now I wanted him to look different and it makes sense based on his toon jeep mode. I may eventually paint part of his hood purple but I'm not sure yet

    Let me know what you think about them

    I found an extra MP SS at walmart and traded him. That's not really a cheap solution but I consider it a fair trade

    Thanks man. I actually opened a MISB reissue Hoist today just for the arm cannon and forcefield projector, which I modified to work with this mold. Glad you like it
