    Well here he is!
    With all the clamor and requests for more pics I give you my completed Classics Trailbreaker! I had his stripes on him but did not care for them one bit, so to break up the black I decided to "mud" him up with some drybrushing and speckling. Makes sense, right?
    The head is a G1 Hun-gurr head. The force field generator is a modified Prowl launcher with a scratch built module on top. The roof rack is just styrene tubing. The rear brushguard comes from another Ironhide. I decided to add the spare tire mainly for aesthetic but I may turn it into some sort of weapon or accessory.
    The familiar and simple leg mod seen here on the boards allows him to tower over Ironhide and Ratchet as well as give him his own bot look.
    You wanted pics? You got 'em!
    I hope you all enjoy the pics as much as I had taking them!

    That is awesome! Doesn't even look like it was an Ironhide mold.

    Wow, I was afraid his alt mode would just be a black minivan, but the roof rack as well as the spare tire and mud details really make him stand out.

    That looks really nice. I wonder if this mold would work for Hoist?

    That looks great! Trailbreaker is one of my favorites. too bad they didn't include a remake for the universe 2.0 lineup.

    WOW I really really like this!! The roof rack and the spare tire look fantastic! Everything about this is so pro, smooth and flawless, from the colour choice, few mods to the realness of the mud apps. To me, this is honestly perfect. I can't really think of how to make it any better. Man, this is just amazing, thanks for blessing us with your photos!!

    nice set of photos! I think you'd really complete the set if you also had a picture of the original one and the custom one in robot modes together, to compliment the shot you have of the two of them both in vehicle mode. :) 

    I don't think I'd do anything with the spare tire and it's mounting bracket, unless you wanted to make it fold away in 'bot mode to hang off his back or something. Otherwise, I'd just leave it be.

    Only thing I would change, and this is obviously out of your hands, is to make this a voyager size. Wasn't TB one of the taller Autobots?

    wow nice work. The mods you made makes it so different from it's original mold that it looks almost like a new mold (in both alt and bot mode).

    Great job. The mud effect really adds to the whole Trailbreaker vibe. I completely agree with you that the stripes would've been out of place. What you did there was perfectly modernize a well-known background Autobot. Kickin job. I'd buy that.
