The Generations Hoist is a great mold but I just don't like his gun having the stripes on it. So, I was going to paint it solid black but, I want him to be true to the IDW color scheme which has the stripes on his hook. Since I couldn't have the hook and the gun both be accurate, I decided I'd have to make him another gun. I was scanning the Spotlight: Hoist comic to see how I wanted the gun to look when I saw him and Sunstreaker carrying crossbows. The crossbows looked pretty bad-ass so I decided that was what my Hoist needed. So here it is. This crossbow is based on the one found in the comic but since there were only a couple scenes that showed it and since it was a little different in each one, I came up with some of the details myself. I haven't tested this model yet but when I get to customizing Hoist I will and will add some photos. If you get yours before I do, let me know how it looks! BTW... an earlier scene in the comic has Hoist holding the bow with a single arrow so I also created "Hoist Xbow" as well that has 1 arrow instead of three. It's in my store too if you like that one better. I created the arrows as separate piece to make painting easier. After painting, just slide the arrows in the holes under and on the sides of the scope and press them down in the clips at the front of the bow. No additional glue should be needed.
