    This is totally speculation. But considering the encore versions of Ironhide and ratchet, we got to see a green ehobby ratchet (not sure why green, I guess maybe related to the movie ratchet?) but more importantly we got an ehobby black Onebox Cherry Vanette. aka Black Ironhide. If you cant tell by now I like diaclones.

    Anyway what is the likelyhood that ehobby will make diaclone colored 4WD Hiluxes? aka Trailbreaker and Hoist?

    For those who dont know what im talking about here are some pics I took of my buddy Ben2099's diaclones for reference.

    I personally would LOVE a blue Wrecker (Hoist) to go with my ehobby crosscut cause im too poor to own the real Car Robot Double Set.

    Now of course there are other Diaclone colors for the 4WD Hilux. Trailbreaker came in yellow and Hoist came in Red.

    But as you can see below, making blue trailbreaker and blue hoist would be easy. It is the same mold pretty much just different heads and different camper/tow ends. So costs for a ehobby blue trailbreaker and hoist would be cheap and easy.

    I love the E-hobby diaclone cars, and I wish they would bring those to the line. As well as, the Red skids, "Blue" Bluestreak, red Mirage, Red, and police Sunstreaker, etc... Bring them All!!:rock 


    Yes, I know the Mirage and Sunstreaker molds are gone, I dont care. If China companys can KO them, Takara can figure it out.:rolleyes:

    Forget takara/tomy. Im hoping that ehobby gets off their butts. if you recall, hoist, trailbreaker, ironhide and ratchet came out before as ehobby exclusives back in 2001. We didnt see those molds in the reissue line at all. not until 7 years later in encore did we see those molds.

    So it isnt a question of the molds. If ehobby wanted to do it, they could and trump takara/tomy and make Mirage and Sunstreaker molds.

    I'd like to see e-Hobby do those, but I'm more excited about what they're doing next. :D

    E-hobby Diaclone reissues are one of the few guaranteed purchases for me. I'd personally prefer the blue Trailbreaker and red Hoist, but whichever they decided to do, I'd preorder as soon as BBTS put 'em up.
