    When the first movie came and gave us a big black offroad pickup, my first thought was "Trailbreaker!" Probably something to do with him being my first TF that wasn't a minibot, when I was a kid. I never did get around to modding movie Ironhide, but when I saw the first pictures of his "recon" remold, I knew I'd be making an upgunned version of good ol' Trailbreaker. Once I had recon Ironhide in hand, I took a break from modifying GI Joes. Here's the results:

    The picture of his head was taken, before I was finished. I had to make new mirrors, because paint won't stick to the originals.

    I looked at the pictures before reading it was Trailbreaker and thought it looks like a ROTF Nemesis Big Convoy (the Target exclusive mammoth)

    Another Tip: When turning your Ironhide into Trailbreaker, just turn around the head and do some painting.

    Thanks guys! I'm so glad to have a Trailbreaker in my collection, for the first time since I was a kid.

    That only works with the old head sculpt. Recon Ironhide's head is completely different, and doesn't have the face on the back of it.
