    Gotta say, the paint and chrome on Outrider looks killer. Bring it on. My carbot shelf needs more chrome!!

    Looks great! Bot mode, alt-mode, all look good. No idea how accurate the alt-mode is to the real-life car, but it looks convincing. Besides the non-translucent parts on the rear windows. Nice chrome parts as well. Clean bot mode with a good sized head. Well done, FT!

    Not really very much at all unfortunately :( . Their old design was pretty accurate, in line with the efforts of XTB, BC and MMC, but this redesign is miles off - really tall, stumpy and chunky looking - makes the real truck look sleek, lol! I can only assume that was a very deliberate decision to go more G1 toy or toon, but it's a strange decision to me while everyone else, including TT, and even FT themselves with their combiners, Mirage, Jazz are still going realistic alts for MP.

    I jumped ship to XTB when I saw that in FT's redesign cos it matters to me. Shame because this bot mode is sublime and easily tops XTB's.

    I look at it the other way - holy shit how did they manage to get their Huffer so big in alt mode!! :)  Putting my XTB Trailbreaker next to FT Beachcomber it looks about the same, except FT a fair bit taller due to the more chibi sculpt they're going for. So dont worry FT Trailbreaker is the right scale - it's just Huffer that's biiiig, which is awesome! :)

    Oh I'm not complaining, more the opposite. He's iron hide size in bot mode and beach comber vehicle mode. Pretty cool engineering

    I'm kind of on the fence for this. I have XTB's Toon Version Trailbreaker already, which I really like. I need to see a good side by side comparison to make a decision. Oddly enough TFSource had this up for pre-order like a year ago and I put it in my stack, so as long as they honor the pre-order I'm covered.

    This was a nice surprise. And since Ive already got it preordered with TCP, I dont have to worry about bumrushing their site to try to score a new preorder.

    I dislike faction symbols over ridges/raised areas on bots, but hopefully a waterslide won't look too bad on him

    Yup. Looks like you did the best you could there. I still haven't put one on XTB Hoist because of it
