Trailcutter-Robot-42

For our next gallery, we are bringing you a look at one of the most awaited Deluxe class toys Hasbro has released in their Generations line. Ever since the Classics line was revived as Universe, fans have eagerly awaited a Trailbreaker to complete their Classics set of original 1984 Autobots. Now at long last in the new IDW comic pack-in Generations series, Trailbreaker finally has his Classics toy! Renamed Trailcutter for trademark reasons (or because Whirl convinced him that having “breaker” in his name was a bad idea) the Autobot forcefield specialist is here to fill out a gap on those Classics Autobots shelves!

We’ll get the negatives out the way first for this toy – yes, the vehicle mode is quite small or “compact” you might say, and yes, the robot mode is not quite as large as perhaps a Classics Trailbreaker ought to be. And yes, the torso has a small problem staying clicked in (but not like Generations Blitzwing levels of frustration). If you put that aside, though, ou have a very nicely designed Autobot for your collection. Trailcutter is solidly built, stout and free of extraneous vehicle bits in robot mode. A lot of his vehicle mass goes on his chest and arms, giving Trailcutter a heroic and well-built robot mode that nicely evokes a modern interpretation of the Generation 1 toy as well as the robot mode design featured in the More than Meets the Eye comics. Trailcutter’s weapon is a shield / blaster hybrid that can store on the back to evoke the “two missiles on the shoulders” look of the Generation 1 toy. All in all, Trailcutter is a nicely designed Deluxe class toy, well-proportioned, spot on to the art, and extremely fun to play about with.

Enough of our rambling now – open the link below to check out our full gallery of Trailcutter to judge for yourself!

    This last picture was inspired by the line from the bio about Trailbreaker being well-liked by his fellow Autobots. I wanted to show Trailbreaker with some of the other 1984 characters who had been featured in Classics, and once I figured Ironhide could be clapping him on the shoulder in a "you did good lad" kind of way, the rest came together naturally.

    Seeing him with Ironhide and Hound shows you just how crappy those two figures are in robot mode

    DEF need updates for those two

    that last pic's caption should read:
    "On Cybertron there is no such thing as paper or scissors"

    Hasbro calls him "Trailcutter" coz they really cut down his size to make him a Generations-midget...

    Evs, B. This figure is just so sweet. I'm so glad he didn't come out last year with the other crappy quality deluxes. Trailcutter, along with the latest voyagers is a sure sign that Hasbro gives a shit about transformers again. And he appears to be taller than G1 Trailbreaker, so I suppose we can drop the size crying.

    I love that last pix of him with all the '84 bots.

    Btw there's nothing wrong with the deluxe Hound mold & he's one of my favs.
