Looks good. Glad i have him on pre-order. Just might have to do something about some of what i think are unnecessary 5mm ports.

He looks brighter than what I was expecting. Not that this is a complaint.

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

^The photos look over-exposed, so I think he's not that bright.

I originally wasn't going to pick him up, but he's too cool not to. I really enjoy his tow hook gun. 8) 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.

Looking good, looking good.

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.

I really like this mold, as Hoist and as Trailcutter(breaker). 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.

GLORIOUS! What a beautiful mold, must have. He does need a few paint apps IMHO, but that's barely worth mentioning.

Hasbro take my money!

Good point! Hmm, I suppose reprolabels must come to the rescue. Now to find a good spot for a faction symbol in bot mode...

I'll be damned if I don't get both Hoist and Trailbreaker.

Looks great. A little too lime green for my taste but whateves....it still works.
