    It's a nice mold, but man that yellow makes it ugly as sin. Great for the Diaclone enthusiasts among us, but woof.

    I love how this looks but I'm not an MP guy.... Also doubt he'll get the chug treatment since reboost and loud pedal never did....

    There’s a shortage of Decepticon medics. I’m glad we got another.

    Surprised they made the character a Decepticon. I always saw the Yellow Trailbreaker as cutting a distinctly heroic figure.

    I do love how the figure looks, though. I'm a sucker for MP Diaclones.

    I'm going with the image from TTM as being the "official" spelling. Also acknowledging I know nothing about kanji, or katakana, or whichever it is, I like the suggestion from the other thread that this is an anagram for "gorilla" and this character may have some relationship to Rarigo. Takara is the master of the deep cuts and I am here for it. Can't wait to read his bio.

    Odd, though, making him a combat surgeon. Seems a more fitting function for the Blue Hoist, which we'll hopefully see in 2025.

    Well, blue Hoist is Breaker, but I don’t think we have a function for him yet, but my mind steals from GIJoe and he’s a communications officer that works with Blaster.

    Breaker is the blue Trailbreaker. The blue Hoist doesn't have a name yet.

    Wish they had included the tampos on the legs, but overall looks really good. Not sure if I'll get it since I already have Trailbreaker on the way.

    I'm all for more Decepticons taking on brighter Autobot-like colours, and lets get some Purple Autobots every once in a while as well.

    @Ikkstakk is correct. I’ll ask a mod to update the thread title.

    I wonder why he has arm/shoulder tampos (or stickers, whatever) but is missing his leg tampos/stickers.
