    Ya know, that mold does work pretty well for Trailbreaker. It's not the mold I would pick, but only because it's a deluxe and I'd personally prefer something in a voyager size. But that's just my opinion, as Trailbreaker is one of my favorite Autobots. You did a sweet job on him though. Can we get some Alt. mode picks, or are you waiting til you get the reprolabels?

    You can still kinda see the red showing through the black a bit, but still, nice job. I'd recomend another coat of black before you add the reprolabels.

    Great concept. Again, I'd like to see you try a light coat of primer first, man. You'll be able to use less paint and do more of he great detail work. :thumb

    Nice! You should see if you could attach Wheelie's tires in place of TB's, and give him bit more of a 4x4 look...

    Vehicle mode is looking very nice - should be good with the reprolabels added

    I don't have much to add that others haven't said. I'll be anxious to see this finished with the reprolabels. Keep up the good work, man :thumb

    Yeah, the red needs another coat of black, but if this is one of your early customs, then at least there's room for improvement!

    Still, Trailbreaker from that mold is a GREAT idea, I wonder why I didn't think of that when I was heaping rust-all onto my friend's Salvage figure...
