Git'r Done! And by that, we mean we're getting closer to our ultimate goal of 2500 total exclusive Seibertron.com galleries in 2011!

This time, it's more of the Wreckers reimagined compliments of director Michael Bay for his upcoming epic, final chapter to the Transformers film saga, TF3: Dark of the Moon. Today, we bring you two of the three updated Wreckers, deluxe class Roadbuster and deluxe class Topspin. Both have abandoned their previous alternate modes in favor of butt-kicking, heavily armed NASCAR race cars complete with MechTech weapons. So while you're waiting for these DOTM figures to be released next week (May 16), pull up your lawn chair, crack open a tall one, and check our fantastics new galleries for them by clicking the links or pictures below.

How did you get Roadbuster's chainsaw to stay out like that?

Probably jammed it, or removed the spring.

And bring on Leadfoot Hasbro! Both the Deluxe for me, and HA for my mom! ;)

Loving Roadbuster... and most everything (but the head sculpt) on Topspin. Nice gimmicks. Shoulder missile batteries are always a good idea. Pretty nice designs for the movie lineup.

I cheated. I used a small clear rubberband that we use for my 2 year old daughter's pigtails/ponytails. That's the fun with photography. I only have to make it look "right" for a moment or two while I take a few pics. :D

I can't believe I'm saying this but these bots are starting to grow on me. I'm starting to think I'll have to get the whole set much the same as I would the Seekers.
I hope Bay didn't try anything along the lines of stereotyping for these characters in the movie.
If at any point I wind up looking at theses guys on screen and the names Cletus, Bubba or Jim-Bob pop into my head I swear to Primus... :BOOM:

I'm loving how you can REMOVE the bulky accessories if you want to. Had to flip through the photos to find out for sure.

Thanks for the great gallery (as always.) We appreciate it!

I'm digging these guys, was lucky to find someone at Target to pull them out for me. I love Topspin's alt mode! All the weapons and techno-bits look really cool, altho they could use some paint apps.

I don't understand why Roadbuster doesn't have the same weapon-heavy battle mode. I enhanced Roadbuster's battle mode by pulling the launchers out, putting one of Topspin's small guns on each door, popping out the door/side panels, and twisting the small side window/roof bits a little to look half-transformed:

I didn't like how the little green flaps on RB's arms got in the way of his arm swivels, so I removed them (one kept popping off anyway). Overall I'm pretty happy with these guys. I would love to see "clean" alt modes for each of the 3 Wreckers, as well as the battle modes like Topspin's.

Reprolabels needs to produce a set of NASCAR-accurate stickers for these guys, including the eventual, much-hoped-for Deluxe Leadfoot. Same for their Human Alliance versions. (Hasbro take note: I'll buy at least 2 of every Leadfoot you care to make.)

I still don't know if I should buy these guys before I see the movie. They look badass but their heads kill it for me...sigh. Who am I kidding? We all know what they're going to sound like. Thanks Bay.

Roadbuster has everything a Nascar fan could want ... a mullet, a goatee, sunglasses and a baseball cap/hat. I loved this figure until someone pointed this out to me.

At least some of these movie style figures have traditional hands.

Yeah, I'm worried these Nascar bots will make the twins look tame.

*GASP*

You...! Don't like...! NASCAR!?

Well, I love 'em! These will be a must buy for me, especially Roadbuster and HA Soundwave!

Nice galleries. There is just one thing that's missing for me: a size comparison (both modes) with some ROTF Deluxes (e.g. Bumblebee and Sideswipe).

If they are too small, I may skip them and purchase only the HA versions.

I like the Roadbuster pretty well, and I may get him and Topspin.

I agree with others that we need a "clean" and "dirty" version of each.

Both need much better paint apps, and they both look kind of small from the group shots.

PASS. I didn't like the "ghetto" bots and I don't like these "trailer" bots. I loved the Kings of Comedy and Blue Collar Comedy tours but, not mixed in with my Transformers, thank you very much.

Wreck and Rule!

These guys already topped my DOTM pick up list. Now, give us a Deluxe Leadfoot fraggit!

I really like both of these figures. Roadbuster overall might be one of my favorites because, for the most part, he has a fairly traditional robot mode and face/head (all things considered with the movie line). It's just, now that I know the head has those design cues, I can't help but think of the stereotypical Nascar fans that these toys are apparently mocking. Wish I didn't know this.

As for Nascar itself, no I'm not personally a big fan. I think I find Golf more interesting. If they want to make Nascar interesting to me ... make it a circle 8 track with the middle intersection either a jump or a 4 way stop with only red and green lights. None of this "yellow" caution/slow down crap. That would ensure some truly spectacular crashes every episode game event that would make this "sport" way more entertaining. I'm not trying to attack it or turn this thread into an anti-Nascar topic, it's just not my thing. Just like how Baseball and Football might not be interesting to other people. Or how Transformers aren't interesting to a lot of people on the level that we think they're interesting.

Nice galleries as always, but i cant stand either of these guys! Bay strikes again with his stereotypical hub-bub attitude towards NASCAR lovers! These figure gags me and will not be buying these.

These guys remind of RoadBlasters quite a bit.

Both look awesome. Thanks for the galleries! Even if they are stereotypes in the movie, at least they don't look like total dorks. Roadbuster is my favourite - I'll be painting him up a bit and trying to figure out a decent and fairly accurate weapon mode.

These are going to be more popular in Georgia than cheese grits at Waffle House.

This Roadbuster's head reminds me of the original Roadbuster's more than a stereotypical NASCAR fan's, if just a bit more laid-back. Heh, looking back, those orange "ears" on the original could easily become part of one of those beer can hat things.

At first I was planning on passing on the Wreckers figures altogether. However, they are starting to grow on me and I might actually pick these up.
:CON:

Am I the only one who thinks Roadbuster looks like Cybertron Sureshot? head, rockets, chest and all? I think Bay recycled him for this.

:lol: I WOULD PAY FOR THAT!!! :lol:
Anyway, when are we getting pics of deluxe Leadfoot and his pot-belly?

There hasn't been a Deluxe Leadfoot yet (that we know of anyways). HA Leadfoot is the closest we have for now.

He's rockin' the beer gut.

These will sadly be overshadowed by their HA variations, thus I'll pass on these two.
