    I don't have these toys. But I would like to incorporate them into Transformers (fan) fiction.

    I'm thinking Hubcap for the yellow one, based on the Machine Wars Hubcap who was a recolor of Machine Wars Hoist whose original toy was a remold of Trailbreaker.

    Blue Trailbreaker? Don't know. I think I'd like for him to be a Decepticon though.

    By the way, E-Hobby should totally release these two color schemes as official Transformers. I'm surprised they haven't already.

    keep the original black one trailbreaker, call the blue one trailcutter and call the yellow one trailblazer. have them as brothers like the autobot brothers from rid.

    Nice idea! I also had the notion of the yellow being g1 scorch. His truck mode and transformation are virtually identical.

    I would have picked Safeguard for the blue one, but seeing RKillian's idea leads me to think I'd save that name for a black Ironhide.

    Holy crap, I hope Hasbro repaints these from the Trailcutter mold to go along with Crosscut. And then they should do a whole series of Diaclone homages so my life will be more full and complete!!!

    Here's an old post...

    Dust-Up = Yellow Trailbreaker
    Iceberg = Blue Trailbreaker
    Axehandle = Red Hoist
    ...because they're clones...

    Wreckage as the Red Hoist

    Oooo, I normally think of the minicon when I think of Iceberg, but I like that too for the blue one.

    Perhaps Ice-Road (a la Ice Road Truckers)?

    Windchill is nice... if going away from the D.I.A. naming scheme

    Doesn't that rather defeat the purpose of it being a Diaclone homage to have the head switched? Also, there was a blue Hoist as well...
