    Oh noes! Incomplete Trailbreaker doesn't have any forearms!

    Hehe, he'll look great on my shelf with the rest of the Encore crew. I've never had Trailbreaker as a kid :D

    Not feeling the blue visor. The red just looks so much cooler against the black plastic in my opinion. Still, I am happy to see Trailbreaker and Hoist get some love and I hope we see a lot more Encore figures in the future.

    I wasn't feeling the blue visor either. Plus I don't like the tampo decals on the Encore series for some reason. They're nice for quality standards, but they kinda take away the nostalgia from the original memories I had with these toys.

    I ended up getting an original G1 (minus the accessories and firsts) off of eBay in great shape. Will probably pick up the Encore for minty chrome weapons/accessories to display with my original.

    Which is why I've applied Reprolabels on top of the tampo decals on all of my Encores. It makes a world of difference and makes them look more like the originals.

    I'm hoping that e-hobby releases re-colors of this mold in homage to the Diaclone line that had like 4 or 5 Trailbreakers in different colors. My Trailbreaker has been lovingly restored and re-built, so he looks fantastic. My Hoist is the TRU re-issue that also looks great, but neither one of these have the g1 artwork to accompany them on display. If e-hobby does release any re-colors I hope they do so with the encore style boxes like they did with the black Ironhide and (non e-hobby) rescue Ratchet.

    I have the original reissue (boy was he hard to get), but I love all the painted details and blue eyes on this one. He looks great!
