Really hoping the Presser/Impactor still comes out. Was VERY VERY disappointed in the half-hearted retool... well, that whole set of Wreckers. (Mind you, I AM glad they finally are realizing we want those characters.) But since those were revealed — plus tbe mention of an upcoming club Ironfist (repaint with new head from FOC Swindle) — that leaves iGear wide open to deliver and hopefully nail those characters. Those head sculpts are spot on. Hoping they release those in a box to add to the Botcon set, or included them with their Presser release.

You know, I'm sitting here looking at my FOC Wreckers, and I feel the same way -

The retooling leaves a lot to be desired, but the head sculpts are PERFECT.

I think I'd still get a voyager class Impactor if one is made available.

Agreed.

I'm still planning to get the official Wreckers, but looking at this iGear Impactor, the Mech Ideas twins, KFC Perceptor, Mach 5 Ironfist, Roadbuster and Whirl kits, etc... I don't think any of the Hasbro versions will usurp the 3rd party versions on their Wrecker shelf space.

Mind you, I DO have to say the triple changers do a nice job trumping the third party toys, especially for the price. Springer and Sandstorm welcome to the club... and perhaps the upcoming Scoop, Swerve and Tailgate can stand among the wreckers proudly? Okay, maybe the Whirl, too.

Wonder if we'll be seeing a decent Broadsides (or better Astrotrain) in the years to come?

But I digress. Besides the upcoming offerings (including Impactor) I guess my outstanding Wreckers want list is most screaming for a decent... Guzzle, Rotorstorm and Pyro, plus Broadside, Roadbuster, and Overlord.

FansProject Broadside is pretty outstanding.

Also, what Roadbuster kit?

This one. Was a pretty short run, but I think it showed up on Shapeways now.

Pretty decent likeness in head and vehicle, plus the meched-out weapons of the original mold lend themselves to the character. Not perfect, but pretty good. Best option we have thus far, I think.

Mind you, this version is perfection — outside of the fact that it doesn't transform. Was really stoked to buy it... till I found out it's just an action figure.

Hey! I remember writing that. I can't believe it was 4 years ago. Upgrade kits have sure come a long way since then.

I still have that figure in the front line of my Wreckers shelf too!

I really feel that Has/Tak needs to step up their game with making more Wrecker figures. Fans love them and demand them, and the new Generations Whirl looks great.

I loved that Natobot Roadbuster! The only problem I had with it had nothing to do with the upgrade but with the Deluxe size of the figure so I ended up selling it to a fellow Seibertronian and replacing it with a custom repaint of Ultra class Onslaught with a Shapeways head. I still prefer the Warbot Defender for Springer I'd rather the iGear Impactor be a deluxe.
