    Trailcutter? Nope, screw that wimp. Try again.
    Trailblazer? Getting warmer......
    Trailbreaker? Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding........

    We have a winner! And he’s a hefty bot too. Trailbreaker is one that I recall from the show as one of the Autobots that had a big presence to him. To a young me, for some reason he just seemed larger than life. With his size and capabilities and with a name as big and strong as “Trailbreaker,” this bot was built to be cool.

    I know Trailbreaker was one of the original Ark crew, but sadly he was mostly relegated to a background character status. I don’t recall him ever having a specific focus on him, but it seemed like when he was onscreen he was always doing something cool. Be it helping to put out fires, protecting his teammates with his force field generator, doing surveillance on the Decepticons, etc., Trailbreaker was a handy-bot to have around.
    And he looks great while doing it. I always loved his black and red color scheme, it’s a classic combo. It helps to make that bright blue visor of his pop, makes you wanna pay attention when he has something to say. This figure is an excellent reflection of his character.
    There are a couple caveats to this opinion though.

    When I first took him out of the package, his left arm was criminally loose. He looked like he just tried to punch Colossus in the face and lost. Definitely had to break out some floor polish for that. Aside from a minor QC issue, really the main complaint I have is that I wish he had better weapon storage. Plus, after looking at him more closely, Trailbreaker just looked very bland, especially in alt mode.

    It’s been awhile since I had bought any Toyhax stickers, but I felt Trailbreaker here sorely needed some color. And I was right, IMO. He looks awesome with some screen accurate labels to liven him up. My favorites are his new window stickers and I love that they are not cel-shaded (which is really overdone). The tinted windows look awesome and the deep blue looks just right on Trailbreaker.

    Like Hoist, I think Trailbreaker wears this mold well. I think this form lends well to both of their G1 likenesses blending aspects of the toy and the cartoon. The arm flaps never bothered me personally. I actually think they’re pretty cool and can be fun to try and wrangle dynamic poses out of them. Mixed with his accessories and design, Trailbreaker is a really cool figure. I’m just really glad to finally own a faithful rendition of a character I remember very fondly.

    What's up TFW2005? It's your boy, Deltron Magnus here - your #1 source for gripping medical drama.

    You know, war is a terrible thing. Not only are many lives lost, but many of those who survive will carry with them both physical and mental scars for the rest of their lives. But it's not just the front line soldiers who suffer. The conflict also takes a heavy toll on the doctors, nurses, and other medical personnel working tirelessly, both behind the lines and on the battlefield, to save the lives of the wounded. Theirs is a story that needs to be told.

    And so, I present to you my latest magnum opus, coming to you in stunning HDPC quality, entitled "Ratchet's Last Straw."

    I'm assuming you mean the non-TF stuff. They're Construx.

    Construx - Wikipedia

    I had a bunch when I was a kid and I liked them a lot better than Legos. The ones in the picture are from a couple of lots I got off eBay. I have a lot more in my childhood collection, but I don't have access to those at the moment. Hopefully once this current situation is over, I'll be able to recover them.

    It's funny, I didn't even know Mega Construx existed until maybe a year and a half or so ago. It's quite different from Construx. Some of the figures look pretty cool though.
