    well as promised and as some of you guys have seen in the ebay forum here is my custom trailbreaker.

    he is essentially my first full repaint of a figure as i have done touch ups and parts respraying and i think he turned out well.

    the head is a alt swindle head with the G1 head accesory and i also took the claws out from the arms as they looked rubbish in there.

    hope you guys like and if you want him find my thread in ebay section to bid on him! thanks and CC's very welcome!

    Wow... this looks really good.

    I wasn't initially sold on the idea of using this mold as Trailbreaker, but your paint job really sells it. It's amazing that Alt Swindle head fits so well.

    I was going to turn my Wolverine into a rougly Alt-scaled Gears or Beachcomber, but I'll have to rethink that now...

    well the head does look good on it but to transform its easier to just take it off as if you leave it on but take the back head piece off its very close to TF

    Well, actually, looking at this just gave me an idea... have you considered attaching his forcefield generator (the thing behind his head) to the hatch that reveals his head?

    I'm thinking that in truck mode, it would look like an exposed engine vent on the front hood, but then it could pivot on a small hinge to project over his head in robot mode. It would give it a place to be stowed in truck mode, and it wouldn't have to be removed in transformation!

    That looks quite good (pictures are a little blurry though). So this is a Marvel Crossovers Wolverine as the base figure?

    This figure is still as awesome as it was when it was made. Durable paint - nice work all around.

    I made one minor addition to it. A magnetically attaching gun hand for increased G1 accuracy.

    Now on eBay. I'm selling off the customs I've purchased over the years.

    I believe your Trailbreaker was the first custom I ever purchased.
