    Continuing my articulated G1 Autobots is Hoist. He now has balljoints on his hips, and head, hindged knees, and more movement in his feet.

    Im going to try some of that Alclad chrome lacquer, and if I get good results, Ill give him rotating bicepts. To do it right now, Id have to modify the forarms to the point that the chrome would be destroyed, and since my goal is to have my customs look factory, Ill hold off until I practice with that paint.

    I also have a set of reprolabels comming for him, since I fudged up his shoulder stickers.:rolleyes:

    These fill me with such unholy toy lust that it's not even funny, man. Every time I look at one of these and confront the sad fact that it is a unique object, and that I will never own them, a little part of me dies inside.

    Dammit Hasbro! This is what you should have given us!!!

    Wow.... The Hoist/Trailbreaker mold was never one of my favorites, but what you did just totally fixed that.

    Your continued effort to articulate the G1 cast is amazing, and continues to blow me away with each piece.
