I just bought $122 worth of Junkion replacement parts from MaidenJapan so hopefully this guy is easier to get ahold of than Wreckgar was.

why dont people ever transsform the foot of the wreckgar mold properly? They all very obviously have 2 hooved feet, left one is ready to go when transformation begins but when you transform the front end which becomes the right lg, you are supposed to rotate the mud guard 180 degrees, revealing the second foot. looks rediculous otherwise. and please, i am well aware that the junkions are meant to be asymmetrical, so spare me.

When you read scrapheaps bio I talks about ratchet who was dead at the point in the movie when they met the junkions. Once again continuity problems... I wonder who hasbro has write this stuff.

It's sort of agreed upon that the toy bios are self contained on their own universe. That why we have characters from several different continuities in one line. And while this one in particular is a bit sloppy, I do have to say that I really like when the bio writers add in other characters to help set scenes and character relationships.

Since I've resigned to the fact that I'll probably never own RtS Wreck-Gar, I am very jealous.

Two must-have figures. I really hope I can add them to my collection.

WTF is being said at 9:42-9:50? This review is kinda crap. No comparison at all with Thunderwing in either mode. No bot mode comparisons for the Junkions? Why? It's right freaking there. A little editing would go far instead of droning on and showing out of shot transformations. United Scrap Heap is mentioned and never shown. Also, why? This is less a review and more a first look kinda thing. Am I being overly picky? Probably, I simply could have done without 12 minutes of high pitched ehhhs and yeehhhs. Learn to edit, pare down to the basics and compare. Get a handle on those and I'll gladly watch more. On topic, the figures look fine.

Why would you give up so easily when they're easy enough to attain at least one. Check Crave.com. You can find them for roughly retail plus shipping.

Asymmetrical or not, you are still correct. To not rotate the foot is an incorrect transformation of the figure. Need to keep my eyes open for these figures at retail. I need 2 of the Junkheaps and 1 Skyshadow.
