This piece was produced by Iga for Mexico. They were also later shipped to Europe, mainly the Netherlands. The company was quite cheap with their Transformers license, and produced some of their 84' & 85' Transformers with different colors, or the same mold to save time and money. Many unqiue Transformers have surfaced from them, such as the Blue Cliffjumper, Black Prowl, and this Green Trailbreaker.
This piece was produced as Hoist, but since the company didn;t want to make a new head mold, they produced Trailbreaker's instead. The green color is a bit lighter, and the orange is lighter as well. The quality is there but a little bit less. The packages though and inserts are of lower quality I have been told. I'am unsure when they were produced, I have heard of many different years but all are withing the early to late 80's. These are extremely tough to locate.
