    Here's my take on Classics Trailbreaker.

    Made from a Marvel Crossovers Wolverine and Alt. Rollbar.

    Still need to fill in panels over the arms and then some Trailbreaker style decals on the side.

    Nice, I started the same thing a few months ago, and for some reason cant find the damn thing. Good to see someone else saw the potential for this in that figure, I wasnt sure anyone would buy the idea.

    I have had one of these near 90% complete since the first wolverine crossover came out but just haven't been able to get the last 10% completed due to the fact that I suck at painting. Yours is looking great though. Never thought of useing the whole Rollbar arm set. I just took the hands.

    Tigermake, to get the head to fit you need to cut out the ball joint from the Alt Rollbar at the very base. Then clip off Wolverine's head all together.
    Once Wolverine's head is gone there was a very thin layer of plastic that lefts that's in the shape of a circle, the same size as the ball joint post. Using an Exacto knife cut out that circle. Bingo! Just plug in the post and glue, once dry add the head. The head fits perfectly while transforming. No further mod needed.

    Hey thanks wwoptimsprime. The arms from Alt Rollbar plug right in the sockets of CO Wolverine. You just have to cut some of the plastic on the arm cutout to get the arms to fold all the way flat against themselves. Man, that was tough to explaine.


    I can post pics if anyone wants.
