    Hey everyone, I just wanted to post what Ive been working on the last few weeks.

    I saw Spoonman's Trailbreaker and felt inspired to do a Hoist version using the Ratchet mold as a base. I thought this would be a easy thing to make, but it ended up being alot more.

    I added a few mods, I needed to make the length longer to fit the tow frame. I also needed the arms to fold back in.Its a hodge podge of alot of parts, including a sunstreaker head with the side wings glued and a faceplate added.

    I plan on adding wings to the tow frame just like G1. Now next up is cleaning him up and filling all the gaps, small detail work then he is ready for paint.

    I wanted to wait till he was finished to post him but I thought some feedback would make this even better.

    Thanks!

    Hoist is one Generations toy I'd like to see made Deluxe size (If Hasbro makes him, he'll probably be a retool of Legends "Trailcutter" :banghead: ). This looks like it should look nice painted up Green & Black w/ Yellow tow hightlights... & modifying Sunstreaker's head looks to have been a stroke of briliance.

    Just keep in mind Hoist rarely had 2 hands; one was usually a weapon.
