Transformer of the Day for November 20, 2009


-Faction: Autobot
Generation One (1984-1992)
-Function: Defensive Strategist
“An Autobot is Only as Good as the Fuel in His Tank
-Notable Toy: Reissue (Takara, 2009)

Notes: While it is only thanks to the recent reissue by Takara-Tomy that Trailbreaker has entered my collection, he has always been one of my favourite G1 toys. Whether it was the thick rubber wheels or the fact that he looked so good in both robot and vehicle moulds, I always enjoyed the toy, and was certainly amused with the repainted spychanger homage that appeared some years ago (even if he was mistakenly called Ironhide). Nevertheless, it’s a shame thought that the reissue didn’t make an attempt at giving us a more show-accurate face.
