    This is a WIP so there are a few minor things to still resolve.
    I've been wanting a movie Style Trailbreaker since #1.
    Major parts swaps from 3 different Movie Ratchets.
    Modded the head to make it look different.
    Subtle but effective IMO.
    Used 91% alcohol and magic eraser to remove paint apps.
    Some tight places to get to on this guy, so some green is still showing up, esp in pics.
    I plan on getting some Trailbreaker repro stickers and adapting them to this mold.

    Pics onward...

    Any Ratchet with clear windows, I guess. If you rub off the paint you will find that the entire door is clear plastic and the clear window is part of the door.

    Good paint job, but it feels like Ratchet wanted more attention, so he painted himself in Ironhide's scheme. >_>

    Would it be IronRatchet or RatchetHide?

    Course... Ironhide himself pretty much had the Trailbreaker's paint scheme in the first place...

    Hah... enough silliness... good work.

    Ironhide may have had the color scheme and that turn around head thing, but the pickup truck just isn't Trailbreaker to me. Unless I try to mod a cap for the bed. Hmmm... There's a thought.

    This mold works surprisingly well for TB. I like the mockups for the stickers.

    If you fit him with a more G1 looking head, this could fit into the classics line.
