    I have been toying with this idea for quite some time already. Ever since I saw Marvel Crossover Wolverine, I thought the offroad alt mode would be a nice fodder for Trailbreaker. And since there are no TFU/Classics Trailbreaker, I told myself, ah, why not? I plan to give him an updated look and stay true to it's G1 colors. At the moment I only manage to find a spare G1 Razorclaw head for this bash, this might change and I am still in the process of mapping the colors.

    There will be slight alterations here and there but I will let the finish product speak for itself :) 

    So, give and take a week or so, he will be ready. C&C helps me to improve. I welcome all. :D 

    EDIT - 8th Nov - Painting completed and updated with new pics

    EDIT -9th N0v - It is done

    He is an SUV in alt mode right ? So he will be repainted into dark gray/ black like in G1.
    Better if you post the card mode for more details :)  This is a good idea but TF/Marvel cross overs cost alot here, its like buying a voyager size toy.

    that's a great idea. I just got this mold the other week as well, was thinking of turning it into Beachcomber.

    I'm not really happy with the quality of these marvel cross-overs though, they feel kinda cheap.

    I had a friend buy this mold for me, but I haven't been able to pick it up because of our schedules. That's one of the few Crossover molds I like.

    Nice! I had this idea as well, and did a quick-and-dirty digibash of it a while back. Not sure if it would help, but if you're interested, here you go:

    You're already ahead of me, though.... I have been to lazy to actually go through with it. I look forward to seeing how yours turns out, it looks great so far! And you actually have a good head for it.... I was just cheating a BT Swindle head on there, but that would never work in real-life, scale-wise.

    EDIT: Oh, and I agree with yourreflection above, who said the Marvel figs feel a bit cheap. I still like Wolverine, but the plastic definitely feels more brittle than usual. I dunno, maybe it's in my head. I wonder how it takes to dye?

    I thought the same when i first saw him in stores. But I guess Trailbreaker could work too.

    Wow,looking at it now the mold really fits Trailbreaker.
    Are you going to give him a gun arm?
