How so? These don't have GPS issues, do they? I've never had issues. Just curious.
I actually laughed yesterday when, just after I posted this I went to the front page and saw WJ88's article, "Top 5 Transformers Toys Most Likely to Break (and make you cry)
." Very timely! He puts it well at the top of the article with Wreck Gar coming in at number 5:

This is one of the best robot modes around and a really smart cool motorcycle transformer. Except there is one slight issue: he will break if you play with him too much! And it sucks too, it's one of the motorbike's handlebars, which then makes the sweet bike mold look totally uneven. And the added play value of having another Junkion ride the motorcycle kind of becomes moot since his bike is now inoperable. The sad fact about this breakage is that it will happen regardless of if you use it properly, just normal wear and tear will do the trick (though not transforming properly will make it happen sooner). You can't glue it back on because it is part of an automorph gimmick which also gets crushed when the handlebar breaks. So while he can still transform, your handlebar will never get back there and cant be fixed. In this day and age where breakage is supposed to be solved, this is kind of abhorrent. It happened to mine:
One of mine snapped off exactly
like in the picture. And I wasn't doing anything differently, it just crumbled when I was transforming him. Fortunately it was one of my many general release figures, and not one of the exclusives. But, thanks to the Lucky Rogers kits, the broken one just stays in the pretty neat robot mode. And I'm not too put out as these are Junkions, right? They are supposed to look a little junky...
So, when considering the merits of joining Va'al or Burn, I have to say that Va'al's obsession with Alpha Bravo is so awesome in its own right that it all but made the decision easy.
But, Burn has a stinky Whirl...Banner image shamelessly stolen from Tyberion's signature...
