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...

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!

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.

I like the general look of these two, they have the 'generic robotic humanoid' shape that I like from a Transformer, even with their crazy shoulder weapon kibble (which I guess could be tucked behind)!

My thinking was obviously Topspin being blue as the original Topspin. With Armour Topspin, was the thought process in making him white to make us think Twin Twist? That is what I felt when I saw them together! ;)

:-?
I have Cyberverse Guzzle who is a great looking figure but again the sizing seems to let him down for me, to pleace him in the line-up.

Would Hailstorm/Mindset be better suited (with maybe a few painted highlights) for the role of Wrecker Guzzle or can anyone suggest another 'tank' to play his part...? :-?

I don't like the movie asthetic. Thus I will never have the Movie Wreckers alongside my Classics Wreckers

Guzzle's always been portrayed as a stumpy powerhouse, which is perfectly represented in his toy form. However should you decide to go with another armour-bot. I like Mindset or RobotMasters Reverse Convoy.

I'm just a littl bit disapointed that the Wreckers comes back as a combiner, Ruination, it would be greater that they had brought them back as individual figures, but maybe for an other day...

Damn, £30? why don't you use Kapow? They're decent. I had similar problems with the FP insecticons and my Runabouts but at least the value of the toys made the charge easier to swallow.

Height wise, Rack 'n' Ruin look pretty good. You have your work cut out for you though, giving them weapons and attaching them to each other. you had any thoughts yet? Bionicle or other Lego ball joints might be useful and could be used for Elbow/Knee articulation... I think you can even get them in Green these days.

How about PCC Heavytread? I don't have him personally, but a lot of people seem to really like him as a Guzzle substitute.

It was an Ebay seller 'A-Plus Anime' which had a whole bunch of Asia exclusives bundled together, Springer, Cliffjumper, Swerve, Motorbreath, Thundercracker and Hoist for £70 free postage. Get the Deluxes and sell on the Legends. Bargain, or so I had planned. :-(

The Iron Giants have no articulation in the elbow, waist or knees. May chop through connector at the shoulder and see what I can do?
If I actually get any where with them and not accidentally destroy them, they may just be displayed as is?
Perhaps a quick green respray and something bodged together for their hammer and anvil fists?

The more I try and work together a Neo-Classics line-up for The Wreckers, its looking like the scale will lean towards Scout/Deluxe.
I wanted to use my CM Corp Mugen Caliber as Roadbuster but he is huge standing next to the others.
Does anyone know of a Deluxe sized Mugen Caliber that would be fitting or shall I hold for the Ruination repaints? :???:

PCC Heavytread makes for a good Guzzle, Sorry if that's already been mentioned. I dont know much about the wreckers, but would like too. I need to get my bearings on the comic side of things, Its just so hard to do.

I just like the idea of an elite autobot team, so my wreckers are ROTF Brawn, Drift (sue me), Heavytread with Groundspike, Seaspray and Breacher, PRiD Wheeljack (2 ninjas!), RTS Bumblebee W/ PRiD Cliffjumer's Hammer(Again, sue me) and DOTM Skyhammer W/ Nightstick.

I know that might sound wierd to alot of you, but in my little universe, the wreckers are just a team of elite autobot muscle.
I want to get the combiner, and Iron Army to add to it. That being said, god, I need more decepticons...

I would like to get a hold of a couple of Heavytreads, the second to use with Iron War set.

After searching Ebay it appears fellow Seibertronian 'Kanrabat' seems to have a case to get rid of!! I wonder what sort of great deal could be arranged for x2 with shipping to the U.K.? ;)

Ok! Flip the script!! 8)

Creating that Neo-Classics line-up for everyones favourite hit squad The Wreckers can be a difficult one.

My first thoughts when starting this thread was 'Come on Mel, get a shelf sorted for The Wreckers'.
Image

Unsure which figures would make that ultimate line-up a reality, I asked for your help... and you guys are coming through with some great ideas!

Mixing up previous and current toy lines from Transformers with 3rd party figures is the perfect way to represent The Wreckers in a modern classic way.

Tweeking the line-up of past, present and maybe future Wreckers is my current project. Full-time, part-time, fringe and deceased members are all fair game for this project! ;)

One problem I have now encountered is... scale?
There are a number of suggestions offered which drops the figures into a Voyager scale but also as many, if not more in the Deluxe/Scout scale?
Aaugh!
Image

So whats a Transformers fan to do? :???:

I know! :WRECKERS: Create line-ups across both scales!! :WRECKERS:

Just dont tell the wife...!! :-$

Dude, the Wreckers are a rag-tag bunch, they don't have to be perfectly in scale. As long as you make sure of the following, you should be ok
