    I immediately thought of Hoist when I saw the Alt mode for PCC Smolder. So, I went to town on him. After that, I figured...why not make a trailbreaker as well? This is mostly just a repaint, with slight modification on the existing tabs here and there. I DID use tape for the lines between colors on the camper shell, but since there are grooves in those little areas, the paint keeps spilling over a bit. Did the best I could! I am thinking about possibly making wings and the sensor attachment...maybe..

    The alt modes on both Hoist and Trailbreaker are really great. Good eye.

    That works really well - the alt-mode's a good fit, and the 'bot mode has several points that are reminiscent of TB too, especially those shoulders! A new head, and he'd be golden. Oddly enough, I thought with a few mods, the Mudslinger mould would make a good TB, too - I think it was inspired by that head...

    That's pretty great. I never saw Trailbreaker in that mold 'til now.

    I would say that the detail on the roof and the lightbar probably should come off if at all possible.

    Never would have thought of that mode as a trailbreaker custom. good work. nice paint work. I think the head looks fine.

    Yeah...well...I only bought this guy really to get the 4 drones to sacrifice for my HFTD/PCC Computron's limb attachments. TBreaker was kind of an added bonus.. :)
