    Hauler only appeared in the G1 cartoon once and he didn't even get to transform. Oh well, I least he got to rescue Hound from the ditch. Here I used the RTS Solar Storm Grappel figure and basically did a repaint. I did give him a working crane that came from Universe Blades (Who is now my Gobot Cop-Tur). Used Krylon flat black for the base coat, then dry brushed, silver, aluminum, and insignia yellow.

    Very nice. I love the ehobby version, and this really captures the character with an updated figure.

    Is it? It looks a like a pale green on my monitor.

    I guess I can see it as yellow now that you say so, maybe its the yellow over the black base coat that threw me off.

    Nice either way.:thumbs2:

    Nice! What shade of green/brand of paint is that? Looks nice, almost movie Ratchet-esque.

    Looks Yellow to me, though I think some of the other posters were just
    picking on you.
