Generations 30th Anniversary Trailcutter Mold Test Images

IDW-Trailcutter
Few days back we saw the IDW Bumblebee Mold Test Shots. Today, 2005 Boards Member cobra zartan is bringing us some test shots of upcoming IDW Trailcutter/Trailbreaker.

Trailcutter is a part of Hasbro's "Thrilling 30" anniversary campaign. The toy design is based on Alex Milne's character in the IDW More Than Meets the Eye Comic Book Series of the same name. Like the Bumblebee figure you saw on May 1st, this too is a Prototype Pre-Production design. These images will give you an idea on how the final product may look like, but actual design may vary.

Find more images, after the jump.

Looking good
daelite20
Nice
Vangelus
Honestly, that colour palette is pretty. I will call him Traildiver.
MechaV
Not really doing it for me.

Seems a little too stumpy and there's no shoulders.
sh002
cool
blackout501st
I'm diggin it. He looks pretty solid. Awesome to see these test shots. Hope we can see pax and megatron soon as well. I'm very eager to see that megatron.
Grimlock_13
A size comparison would be nice but oh we'll. it's not like everyone has a TF just laying around. I'm looking forward to this for sure.
nemesisconvoy
I don't like the hollow legs.
archieboy
Looks good. I hope the shoulders won't be an issue. And I hope they use good quality plastic to make up for the hollowness of the calves.
Valkysas
Man, I want to see him from the back.

and damn it, his rear wheels are the clip-on type. I was hoping we were done with that crap.
Torque
He seems so... small.

Bumblebee has them also, not sure if it's just in the test shots or if it will carry over to the production figure.
GAUGE
this does not bode well for metroplex. I bet he'll have clip on wheels too. and tons and tons of Hollow empty spaces, and super thin plastic a-plenty. :/
OptionZero
CHUG Prowl-esque shoulders? Haven't they learned their lesson by now? I really hope they can be positioned higher

The hollowness is disappointing but I suppose i can live with it at the deluxe pricepoint.
GAUGE
Transformers, The Dollar Store Gobots.
General Tekno
Hopefully we get a rear POV image.
motorthing
Some good some bad.

I'm getting him but after the magnificence that is Springer/Blitzwing at the Voyager size why cant bigger guys like TB and Megatron also be voyagers? AT that size a lot of the cheap-outs on this guy get mitigated or just wont happen. TB is supposed to be a big Bot so why the heck not?

Still I guess this size mold will help Hastak make Brawn, Bulkhead and any other vaugely husky looking Bot from here to eternity.........
Cal
I think he ought to change his name to Tealbreaker.
Bountyan
Was hoping for comparison shots..
barrelks
Not really my favorite design, but I'll take what I can get with Classics. Can't wait to see how Takara deco's this thing though since that will likely be the one I keep in vehicle mode.
AMG
Looks decent.
Prime Jetscream
His arms look waaay too droopy.

Not sure why everyone's so down on the clip-on wheels. Well, they're ugly when the clips are visible. But these are the reverse-type, where the wheel has the clip.

Aesthetically, they're better than the classic pin-type because it means that the hubs can be fully sculpted, instead of having a hole in the middle for the pin. RiD Vehicon and Rumble and Knockout have great looking wheels as a result.
TCracker
He will be mine...when the official ones are out.
miscreant
To me, Hollow legs just add to the fact that it's not the more G1ish Trailbraker i would rather have had.


I know i'm complaining a bit, but it makes me wish Headrobots Big Road was a reality... or that Takara would secure a HiLux license...

Ehh, don't really mind them personally - as long as they're like this and not like the Beast Hunters deluxes, where the clip on works the other way around and you have those awful pins coming out of the hubcaps.
Boardwise
I like it.
BScorpinok75
Looking good! Would love some comparison shots if possible

Looks interesting, though I wish there was a size comparison image.
DJW107PRIME
It looks good though I would like to see if that weapon can clip/peg onto his back in bot mode also comparison shots would be nice.
SPLIT LIP
I just love how heavy-duty that alt mode is. I want this toy.

Because they feel cheap as hell and impede pretty much the only play factor of the vehicle mode: it's ability to roll smoothly.

Uh?
Ezilla82
Despite the hollow legs and whatever is wrong with the shoulders I'm still getting this guy no matter what.
SPLIT LIP
Pffft, hollow legs aren't really a problem with me. I mean, so many toys have them, it's just one of the things thet happens when you need two pieces to occupy the same space in one mode.
Impactor1106
So when wil BBTS have this and the other 30th anniversary guys up for preorder?
Stepper
Can't wait for Trailbreaker to be out.
Jalaguy
Man, he better not be a pain to find in the UK. I bought a ROTF Lockdown to go with him and everything.

I'm basically sold on him, in part just 'cause James Roberts, but I really hope his weapon/roof can attach on his back to give him the accurate cannons-over-the-shoulders look.
Nope
Can't wait.
down_shift
I had such high hopes for a new Trailbreaker, but it looks like this fall's pretty short of my own expectations.

The wheels on the legs look very lazy, and I still really dislike that bulky partformer shield. On top of that a hand cannon should have been a must. Oh well, I guess I can wait another 5-6 years before they do anything with him again.
Puck Hockey
Arms are stumpy. Grr. Now not sure if want.
megatroptimus
Another lazy design. Good going Hasbro!
CodeXCDM
Just wish he were a voyager, even a smaller voyager like the DotM ones.
slugslinger2004
Thanks for the pics cobra zartan!

I hate, hate, hate that shoulder design. It sucked on the lambo mold, it sucked on RTS Perceptor and it will probably suck here.
MWG
So the guns on the camper shell don't fold back? That would mean the vehicle mode is always in "attack" mode which is extremely rare for any TF vehicle other than tanks. Not overly fond of the whole camper shell being the robot's weapon either, too bulky and part of that could fill out the robot more. Main bot body looks fine though

+-MWG-+
Fallout
aaaaah those shoulders are awful.
Matt_M
Have their been any size comparisons for this year's new deluxe molds? I'm interested to see if they are maybe just a tiny bit bigger than the WfC figures, since the MSRP has increased.
iacon45
He might not be perfect, but I will still get it. Trailbreaker was way overdue for a classics update (larger than a Legends). Also plan on getting the Hoist repaint too when it hits so I can put him next to my RTS Grapple.
