You might be in the minority, but you're not alone. If they must be repaints, I couldn't have thought of a better place for them. Sure straight repaints of them would've been bad, but head remolds, and new weapons on top of that? Perfect!
I'll be honest. I never read a Wreckers comic yet. I barely know who these guys are, and never even heard of Whirl(as a G1 char) and Impactor till last year. I had the G1 toys of Topspin and Roadbuster though. Regardless, I couldn't be happier with the mold choices. I'm already a hueg fan of the FoC Bruticus mold set, and I love remolds of this nature.
If I had to nitpick about something(couldn't call myself a fanboy if I couldn't!), I'd want the combined form to have a more appropriate name, rather than stolen from a RiD character. But honestly, the positives completely outshadow it.
Amazing set of remolds.
