    Some of the ugliest molds from G1, rivaled only by Ratchet and Ironhide - but dammit if I don't have Trailbreaker on the way. One closer to completing the G1 collection :) 


    EDIT: Wow, I have a comma in my post count now

    thanx for the pics. My Trailbreaker and Hoist are in great shape, so I wont be ordering these. PLEASE e-hobby release some re-colors of these 2. In total homage to the Diaclone line. I would buy them in a second.

    I may sale/trade (maybe) my G1 Trailbracker and replace it with this at BOTCON. The only thing I do not like is the blue visor, I prefer the red version.

    Trailbreaker always captured the look of trucks of that era perfectly, even if his proportions aren't correct.

    I've always felt that there were too many sports cars and similarly exotic vehicles amongst the Autobots, and Trailbreaker is a nice exception.

    The blue visor sets up an interesting contrast of blue highlights on the figure's upper body and red on the lower half.

    My Trailbreaker is very badly worn, so it may be worth picking this up...although I do prefer to keep G1 reissues MISB.

    For this to be a new figure, the rear end looks kind of rough...maybe it's just me...

    Well if they do, they better not disappoint me like Ironhide has done. If so, Hasbro can keep them!

    Second that, the plastic on my Uni. Iron Hide feels just like Big Lot's Knockoffs.
    This is why I am hesitant to purchase Hasbro products here lately. Though in all fairness I don't own any Henkei Yet so I don't know if they're any better.:inquisiti 


    Back on topic: Trailbreaker does look kinda beat up.:drunk :deadhorse:

    What was the reason for this release? Is there any difference between these and the TRU reissues?

    These molds are really crappy, almost look like KO molds compared to the TRU and Takara reissues. They look the same, until you compare them to earlier versions. They look rough because they are.

    Takara did reissue him through the E-hobby line.
