So still a little bigger than older Scout size.

As I said, I'd like to see them scaled next to something from the Classics/Generations/RtS lines, in robot mode.


Optibotimus compared them to FoC Jazz, and they're all a bit taller than him (Swindle is a head taller, specifically).

Yes, but I'm lazy enough not to want to compare FoC Jazz (which I do not have) to another figure from previous lines. Image

I'll wait for more pictures.

7:53 He's about a head-and-a-quarter shorter than RTS Jazz.
So the Combaticons are mostly right around the top of Jazz's shoulder wheels.

You guys are creating some sweet line-ups!

In the many years and changing faces, just how many members of The Wreckers has there been so far? :-?

That one huge list could be what changes your collection, showing a whole new love for that long fogotten deluxe from aeons ago! ;)

Let's check shall we?

Legend:
Bold = Official Release (Hasbro or Takara)
Italic = 3rd Party Release (Fansproject, iGear, etc)
Underline = fairly acceptable stand-in
Multiple styles = multiple choices
Normal = No release thus far

Original G1 (+Regeneration) Wreckers Lineup:
Broadside
Impactor
Inferno
Rack'n'Ruin
Roadbuster
Sandstorm (yeah it's a cheesy Legends or scout repaint, but it counts to the character)
Springer
Topspin
Twin Twist
Whirl
Kup
Leadfoot (usually PCC Leadfoot is used)

Dreamwave Wreckers:
Ultra Magnus
Roadbuster
Whirl
Topspin
Twin Twist
Broadside

IDW Wreckers (note they didn't all serve at once):
Blocker
Broadside
Crest
Guzzle
Hyperion
Impactor
Ironfist
Kup
Perceptor
Pyro
Rack'n'Ruin
Roadbuster
Rotorstorm
Sandstorm
Scoop (I've seen Cybertron Landmine used)
Springer
Topspin
Twin Twist
Valve
Whirl

Aligned Wreckers:
Bulkhead
Impactor
Pyro
Roadbuster
Rotorstorm
Ruination
Seaspray
Springer
Topspin
Twin Twist

So to sum up, pretty much most of the original Wreckers exist, or will exist in one form or another, though they may not be 100% accurate to their original appearance (I'm looking at you Generations Wreckers combiner) and from most other Wreckers lineups, the majority do/will exist in toy form.

So to sum up my summing up: wreck 'n' rule!

Don't forget the Dark of the Moon Wreckers :P!

I didn't know what the heck a 'Wrecker' was until I saw the 3rd movie since they only existed in the comics previously (i.e. Marvel G1, not Sunbow G1).

It was the first time I'd heard the term as well. I'm now quite sorry I missed out on all the years of amazing teams. :P It's great how they worked the mythos of the Wreckers into Prime...but why did they have to kill off Seaspray!? D: I mean, sure, kill off Tailgate, but Seaspray is the best gurgly-voiced Autobot ever whose aquatic altmode isn't completely useless on land (here's lookin' at you Manta Ray).

Yeah, that's the one I'm referring to. My policy with 3P figs is that if there's no update for a long while, then the figure's just on the back burner. I would hope iGear releases Impactor.

Ah ok. I hope it gets released too. The FOC one is OKish, i guess, but too small and skinny for Impactor. I quite like the kit that was put out to convert that Captian America/Iron Man transformer, but it requires skill beyond my means to make!

Marvel Crossover eh!
Does anyone have pictures of said Marvel pieces being used alongside your other Neo-Wreckers? It would be great to see how they fit in/stand out!

With reference to the upgrade kit, was that a Shapeways print? :???:

It was sold by this guy, you can see a size comparison with the Rodimus mould in the video.

You guys are generating some awesome lists for an ultimate Wreckers line-up!

After looking up the various galleries for some of the potential Wreckers mentioned, I can see where your coming from with your suggestions.

I picked myself up an Energon Strongarm after he was suggested as a stand-in for Wrecker Ironfist, and what a great little figure he is too!
I guess his scale comes in at around Scout Class so looks a little small next to the likes of Mugen Calibur Roadbuster (although Roadbuster is supposed to be a big lad)!

I will pop a couple of pictures up this evening when I get home from work. 8)

Nice idea, did you go for the blue or yellow one? I'm wondering which one works better.

Honestly, I have to disagree. That mold never did it for me. The only version I have in my collection is the Botcon '05 Fallback figure, and only because it's a Botcon fig.

Creating that perfect Neo-Classics Wreckers line-up can be a difficult thing!

With many members being paraded ;) throughout the timeline is it just as easy to find a figure with the closest colour scheme to stand amongst the chosen or should the vehicle mode be taken into account?

What about head sculpts, what about weapon assemblies and of course sizing (Cyberverse lined up with a Voyager would just be a fail)!

I have recently added Energon Strongarm to my line-up as a stand-in for Wrecker Ironfist but just saw a pair of these on Ebay...

How would a couple of these Iron Giants look as Rack n Ruin!?

It'd definitely require some work, bu I can see them working! They have a good head sculpt at least. :)

Well, the Iron Giants are on their way! Rack n Ruin will be spitting when they find out!! :lol:

So it seems our Wrecker buddies Topsin and Twin Twist may be shown some 3rd party loving soon...but while we are waiting, who else could stand-in for these two bruisers for a Neo-Classics Wreckers line-up?

What do fellow fans think of these two fellas? Could a Movieverse figure even dare be considered? Would they really seem so out of place!

Topspin & Twin Twist?

Well, the Iron Giants are on their way! Rack n Ruin will be spitting when they find out!! :lol:

So it seems our Wrecker buddies Topsin and Twin Twist may be shown some 3rd party loving soon...but while we are waiting, who else could stand-in for these two bruisers for a Neo-Classics Wreckers line-up?

What do fellow fans think of these two fellas? Could a Movieverse figure even dare be considered? Would they really seem so out of place!

Topspin & Twin Twist?

Hmmm, maybe if you squinted. I can see the resemblance, but they look too at odds with the other wreckers, IMO.

I have no issues displaying different aesthetics next to each other. :) In fact, I quite enjoy having Classics Starscream next to 07 Voyager Thundercracker and if they do Skywarp out of the FoC mold, he'll be there to fill out the trio. My logic? Thundercracker is the muscle of the group, so it makes sense for him to be a bit of a brute, and I like the different aesthetics next to each other.
