I only wish the sensor could be removed in vehicle mode somehow. Other than that, he looks good.

I originally wasn't going to pick him up, but he's too cool not to. I really enjoy his tow hook gun. What I don't enjoy is the complete lack of paint on the back of the vehicle. But at least the wheels are painted so I suppose Hasbro has to make sacrifices somewhere.

I really like the base mold for this toy. Works great for me as Trailcutter(breaker) and Hoist. I think the one thing missing that would make this the perfect modern Hoist for me is something to serve as wing like fins on the back as a nod to G1 Hoist.

The only downside I have about this figure is that the Autobot faction symbol disappears into his chest in robot mode. I wish they could've come up with a way for it to remain "topside" in robot mode. Personally it should work the other way around, where there isn't a faction symbol seen in vehicle mode (they are Robots in Disguise, after all), but after transforming, the faction symbol is revealed in robot mode.
Good point! Hmm, I suppose reprolabels must come to the rescue. Now to find a good spot for a faction symbol in bot mode...
