    Sorry for the truck mode tease (bot mode pics will be up tomorrow evening!), but need to finish some details to bot mode before they go up. Alt Hoist in all his glory. Painting this guy up just makes me feel like this mold was definitely intended to be Trailbreaker/Hoist. Thanks to Squall for the inspiration, and the idea for the KC lights! Once I saw his Arm Megs painted up all green, I knew I had to do Hoist! Lift is from Energon Landmine, as well as the robot mode shoulder wings (which snap perfectly into the bed of the truck.) Bot mode will not disappoint guys, you will see him tomorrow...and he is probably my favorite bash that I have done.

    That's a really gorgeous piece! I'd say the robot mode is equally as stellar! Nice work!

    Ditto! I want to know how he looks, since he did some subtle-yet-drastic changes in vehicle mode.

    Nice lift you gave Hoist there. :-D

    If they had survived the removal process, I would give them to ya. Alas they bit the dust while heating the pins. I usually have no problem with the soldering Iron technique, but Prime didn't want to give up his wheels! I still have the rubber tires but the rims are gone.
    Thanks for the support guys! The bot mode pics will be up (late) tonight.

    I look forward to seeing what you intend to do with the crane on the back of the Robot Mode legs.
    Though personally, I would have shaved off the Mini-con Ports.
    Also, will this hoist have the gun/cannon hand.

    I don't want to step on your toes, Sculpt Bot, so I appologize for this... but your custom is so cool I just had to do it.

    White balance and magical Photoshop "void land" applied: :D
