    Since we now have igear's van brothers. Which vehicle would you like to see on Trailbreaker and Hoist to add to a classics, MP, 3P display? So far we have seen Headrobots Toyota Hilux camper truck. What about an update on the Hilux? Here's the one featured on Top Gear. This thing went to the North Pole!
    Any other vehicles come to mind?

    well considering they were based off the old toyota hilux of the 80's I'd be all for this, the new Hilux is a beast and definitely invokes Trailbreaker in name and action. Specially if based on the ones on the record setting Artic team, I mean jet fueled diesel engines how awesome is that

    Looking at that particular truck I wouldn't have a problem with it. Just move it over to correct color schemes. Black with the yellow stripes, or green and orange.

    In fact almost any modern off-road truck that doesn't go too far into the souped up mods realm and beyond normal civilian life sounds great for classics. Just try to make him not as tall as classics Prime and he'd be bought on site.

    Now if only Hasbro/TakTom could get a clue.

    I thought Headrobots were gonna be releasing their Big Road (Trailbreaker) now?

    Looks awesome but in light of Ironhide/Ratchet it needs to be bigger.

    They would definitely have to match their color schemes. Now that the van bros are out I would want them to be just as tall which would put them right at classics prime height.

    Yea I mentioned that at the top. That's the old school Hilux camper truck. IMHO that truck would fit better in a strictly MP collection due to the model year.

    Big Road needs to be upgraded in size (Voyager preferrably, similar to PP05), and with added detailing to get a better updated G1 vibe; as it is, he's a bit small and too bland/plain in the details department.

    I'd prefer it if iGear worked on a Hoist/Trailbreaker and put PP04 BB/CJ on hold for now.

    Slavish G1 or modern Hilux would both seem to be the sensible options.

    Personally I have a perfect (and I do mean perfect) custom of Trailbreaker, so I'm not likely to bite on a 3rd party one.

    Hoist however...

    My only Trailbreaker / Hoist suggestion is that SOMEONE make them. Anyone. At this point I don't care who.

    Oh cool you used animated ratchet's base. I've seen some customs where they used universe Ratchet/Ironhide as the base. Also crossover Wolverine/Captain America. I think I recall seeing a custom with movie ratchet as well.

    I would definitely prefer them to be as tall as igear's van brothers. I'm really diggin the new Hilux. But that's prob my Top Gear bias. That episode rocked! When I made the connection that G1 Trailbreaker was a Hulix the bulb in my head exploded. :bay
