    GRIDLOCK: AUTOBOT TRANSFORMERS X GHOSTBUSTERS CONTAINMENT SPECIALIST

    Another Trailcutter/Hoist body custom you say? Sure! I keep having to buy a used Trailcutter Everytime I need the back piece for the alt mode and...usually I find him cheap WITH a Hoist so I need to use these guys for something!... right?!

    So far I'm up to 3 Trailcutters and 2 Hoist(Hoists?). For builds I've made a Wrecker Ironfist and a yet to be named Transformers x Ghostbusters "Shandor Mining Co." Decepticon. For the next one I'm putting together another Transformers x Ghostbusters for the Autobots team to go with my GhostHead Custom. This one though will be from the Trailcutter figure.

    I'm going to mod the pop on truck bed piece into a red containment unit kind of setup and make the rest of her white. Yes, a her! Usually I pickup some 3D printed parts for mods, this time I grabbed the drill and glue to get what I want. I unpinned the middle hood piece and clipped off the hinge, gluing it permanently in place. This should change the way the front end of the vehicle sits in bot mode, making it sit a little higher and giving her a slightly more feminine form (a la Strongarm).

    The neck piece originally had a flat headed swivel post I removed in lieu of adding a 4mm to 4mm post to accommodate the head from Moonracer I had extra from my Gozer figure.

    As always, still working on a name! As for the team, she'll be the containment specialist with a mobile containment unit. ❤️

    A bit more progress on Gridlock. Still waiting on another Trailcutter for that backend piece. I'd rather have a custom 3d printed piece but I don't have the skills not moolah to swing that. IMG_20191120_001209.jpg

    I'm thinking for the next and final figure, maybe do a redeco of Nightbeat?

    So far I have:
    • Ectotron - Proton Packs
    • GhostHead - Traps
    • Gridlock - Containment Unit
    • ? - PKE/Slime Blower?
    I want each to kind of have a specialty.

    Ebay:
    Th30 Nightbeat would be a good PKE.
    For a Slime Blower I would use a Shockwave that has a hose mounted onto his cannon.
    So...
    • one of the movie Shockwaves
    • or Cyberverse Spark Armor
    • or TF Prime Voyager.
    Also coming to my mind are
    • Animated Wreck-Gar
    • and Oilslick
    • and HftD Sea Spray.

    Once the truck topper is in and converted to a mobile Ecto Containment Unit, (and replace the damn hip assembly as the one ball joint snapped) i'll polish her up and be done!

    Here's a preview of her alt mode til then without it: IMG_20191120_130835.jpg IMG_20191120_130828.jpg

    It's listed as the XT003 Upgrade kit, I found it on ebay :) 

    It's upgrade parts for both Generations Trailcutter and Hoist.

    I'll post more formal photos, this weekend, but I got her back piece in! I got a little bored while I waited so I made the 3rd new member for the 4 bot team of Transformers Ghostbusters. Names are always a bugger for me when it comes to these! I still need to touch him up and accessories! I want to get a slime tank of some sort for him.

    Okay as promised, here's Gridlock's Bot mode with a comparison next to her base model, Trailcutter.
