TF remove the weapon and set aside for later. Fold the flatbed back 180 degrees to form the lower legs and feet. Turn over &stand. Fold the front wheels down so they and the attached pieces of plastic stick out the front of the robot. Fold them back so they are beside the cab windows. Fold the cab and bonnet forward 90 degrees. Fold the bonnet down. Fold the head up from the back through the top of the cab. Fold the forearms down.
The Trailbreaker resemblance continues in robot mode with the cab and bonnet in the same configuration as can be found on the older toy. The head isn't dissimilar with a large visor - lightpiped in pink - but what it reminded me of the most was Armada Red Alert. With Wheeljack's ears. Articulation is a little lacking - the knees bend together as part of the TF and the elbows bend. The biggest problem I have with this toy are the shoulders - we have the body of the toy and then the arm is connected to the body by a strut running down to the hip. At no point is this strut anchored anywhere to the toy and especially not at the shoulder itself which creates a visible gap and as the hinge at the hip wears it means the arms flop about somewhat especially the one laden down with the gun.
And yet somehow the toy has character. I'm not sure quite what it is, possibly the Trailbreakerness showing through, but I like him loads.
Scorch was released in some European countries as Dragon - see http://www.cobraislandtoys.com/tf/1992/scorch.html for a picture of the tech spec featuring this name - and as Fireroad in Japan as part of the Operation Combination TF-07 2 pack with Shadowjet (Falcon)
