    Hmmm... not sure about these.

    I have my original G1 Hoist from when I was a lad and, frankly, I don't find the figure interesting these days. With so many great new versions of classic characters coming out in the classic universe line, I don't feel the need to buy new versions of figures I had when I was younger.

    I can see prices on Hoist tailing off pretty quickly.

    My poor, poor TRU Hoist. He's going to a new home soon and doesn't understand why. I'm a sucker for missile launchers that actually, you know, launch missiles. And my Trailbreaker's complete but has a broken head hinge so wouldn't have any realistic resale value. I'll let him hang out with my G2 Jazz and Inferno junkers. I'll call that the "Swarm got us" shelf.

    Sold on trailbreaker; paid 9.98 for TRU Hoist back in 05, so I'm still happy there.

    Yep, I remember first seeing Trailbreaker and Hoist as a kid and thinking how ugly they were.

    And now that I'm all grown up, looking at these two through nostalgic glasses...

    ...Yep, they're still ugly.

    Looks cool and all but I can't wait to see him in the Universe line. Hopefully he's a deluxe toy and not a larger one.

    Couldn't they have painted some details on?

    Those squares on the shoulders are a pain to keep on.

    These encore toys don't leave Japan. The only that has done so has been Soundwave and that was ages ago.

    Trailbreaker looks great. Being that he was my very first TF, I can't wait to get a brand spanking new version of him!

    They made his eyes blue...cool, but at the same time, I did like the original red.

    Still bought.
