Perhaps my favorite thing about Trailcutter is how it re-creates the antennae (Missiles? I've never been quite sure what they were) on his back. It's little touches like this that make me love the Generations line. In order to achieve this look, a sacrifice must be made - the force field projector has to be flipped up so the antennae can attach. The antennae are actually attached to the truck's rear canopy and are supposed to be part of the battle shield. Here's a look at the battle shield in action.

One thing that's been bugging me since the release of the Fall of Cybertron figures is how small the Deluxe figures had become. They appeared to be shrinking, as though they were well on their way to becoming Micromasters. I decided to do a little comparison with figures from the Classics, Universe, and earlier Generations lines. The figures that I used were: Classics Hot Rod, Universe Hound and Generations Warpath. Frankly, the results surprised me a bit.
Trailcutter may be a new name, but the character is as old as the franchise. I'm very excited that he's received an update after 30 years as it's been a long time coming. If you haven't gotten him yet, I highly recommend that you do so. His retool - Hoist - is scheduled to be out any day now, so I'm eagerly looking forward to him. This is a great mold, and I know that Hoist will be just as magnificent.
