Let me put it this way. As a kid growing up in the 80's Hauler was his own thing for a while, and there was no Grapple. When Grapple came out he was different looking, so it is not the same except for the color. Hauler is his own special version to me because of a year of my childhood he always was, because G1 Season 1 was all there was for a while. Those who didn't experience that in 1984 would not understand and are just trolling me for something they do not understand, because they don't want to understand.
