    I've been "working" on this one for 3 weeks. I actually worked on it for 2 days and haven't touched it since then (been distracted by multiple S6 projects). This figure was a BITCH (we are talking Shannon Daugherty) to dismantle, and I think that is what turned me off to it. I thought that if I posted my lack of progress it might get me motivated again. Either that or people hounding for an update would light a fire under my ass. So here it is or isn't...

    Yeah. I'm shocked no one beat me to it on this one, since I've been dragging ass so long. Especially since Jin did a SWAT Payload, which is also in my pile of things I'm (not) working on right now.

    Oh, I don't belong to the board. Why bother looking at some second rate site when you've got TFW?

    It actually looks pretty decent, considering the odd choice of vehicle...

    Nice, but it looks like a more like a cherry picker.

    My first thought seeing the green pieces spread out was "custom Dew-bot".

    But I guess Hoist is nice too.

    My Hoist is like yours Moonstreaker,except for the yellow on the sides and the black isnow aluminum.
    Thinking of getting another Longarm to repaint as Trailbreaker.

    Longarm is an obvious Hoist... even the head is somehow reminiscent in overall shape. The cannon seems a bit aggressive for a maintenance and repair bot, but other than that, it's a great match. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw an official Hoist repaint of Longarm down the road...

    Can't wait to see this finished! :)

    I looked at longarm and just as he is he seems like he would be a more likely update to wheeljack. just a personal opinion and your repaint looks awesome keep it up.

    Nah... Wheeljack is the mad inventor and crazy stunt driver/tuning junkie. He'd never turn into a tow truck.

    Hoist is the jovial, dependable, heavy-lifting maintenance guy... the mold totally suits him. :)

    Without the towhook or hazard stripes, he'd make a great Brawn.
