    All my favorite Autobots were in the first episode. Prime, Jazz, Ironhide, and my boy Trailbreaker. "I may not be fast, but I'm tough!", as a 6 year old at 100 lbs, I felt it described me. Here were 24 years later, and no Trailbreaker!

    I got the idea from Rdlines recommendation for a head sawpp on a TFTM Inferno I did. The Incinerator head screams Trailbreaker to me. Add a machine gun, chain fed ammo and a ammo can, and here wae are, i originally had planned to add some yellow, orange, red and cyan decals, but I like him better this way. Rough and rugged, like Trailbreaker, Enjoy!

    I like the color scheme you picked. Very interesting.

    I also like the tire on the back in alt mode.

    Nice work.

    Mampy, I love the Ratchet mold, it's my favorite of the movie figs, just sturdy and stocky, ya know? I think I have two more in me, a Roadbuster and maybe a Brawl. Spurt Reynolds did a awesome Soundwave with this mold, as well. It is a really versatile figure. I just did a great trade with Anovism (Thanks, man), so I have two more Ratchet figs to play with.

    Thanks, PK. We don't see a lot of Trailbreaker, huh?

    Timshinn, I didn't really know what color scheme to run with. I tried to use red as more of a accent color instead of a main color, and replace that red with the rusted look. I had no clue that it would flow with the blue so well. It all kinda came together (thank God! :thumbs2: )

    Outstanding work with TFTM.
    If they looked this good from Hasbro, I would have them all.
