Really looking forward to these, glad I didn't get Bruticus because these look so much better. I still hate the combined mode though. Maybe the awkward proportions would work if he didn't stand upright. I'm thinking ROTF Devastator, does anyone know if that's possible?

These look great as FOC figures but are pretty poor if they were to be repurposed 'Classicsverse' ones. I know a few poeple who were waiting on these for that very reason. MechiDeas Topspin and Twintwist are way nicer. That Impactor headsculpt is pretty nice though and deserves a better body. I wounder if anyone will be donating it to Machine Wars Strika?

i think this combination looks much much better than the bruticus version. . i may have to pick these guys up.. but i'm certainly not going to pay the retail $15 price per figure on it. if there's a sale, i'll pick them up. otherwise.. no thank you.

I sold my G2 colored FOC Bruticus without regret. The whole thing was just "meh" looking and felt pretty cheap.

However, I may just get this Wrecker set because they look way better than their :CON: counterpart.

Thank you for yet another wonderful gallery.

The combination of the new deco, retooled sculpts, and new accessories really make this set stand apart from the FoC Combaticons in a good way.

just looking at the second picture of all the identical molds for different figures shows how much of a shit attitude hasbro has for transformers now. all the money they make from sales and the best they can do is a different head, new weapons and a paint over? foh hasbro. you disgust me.

Wreck n Rule baby.

1) Still better than endless amounts of straight repaints like they've done in the past, wouldn't you say?
2) Don't like it? Don't buy it.

And "all the money" is fairly subjective. We have no sales numbers, so yeah...

Great galleries as always, Ryan, reconfirming getting them for sure.

I'm Glad we get new weapons and new heads on repaint these days. Back in the days we almost never get new heads. New head with a different paint scheme is great!



Impactor and Roadbuster looks awesome in my Wreckers Shelf! =]
the other three... I'll just throw in my FOC shelf.

Great pictures btw!

Wow Hasbro, repaint much? That combined mode is hideous.

oh please. of course they look better. it's the freaking Wreckers we're talkin about.

overall, if the toys weren't garnering revenue, hasbro wouldn't continue to push em out like this.

i understand that since it's a combiner set, the whole "if it ain't broke don't fix it" mentality comes into play, but geez. those boys deserve better than this. they know they can do better. we all do. hasbro's just being lazy, knowing that diehard transformers fan'll eat up whatever they spew out.

that being said, it's the Wreckers. hell yea i'm coppin em. but i'm not happy about the way they're bring treated.

It's still a step in the right direction, since Roadbuster and Whirl straight repaints at first (see Cybertron Defense Hot Shot, Cybertron Legends Evac and Movie Voyager Evac).

I just opened mine and I'm super psyched about the new weapons, they are just so awesome!

Great picks Ryan.

5 recolors and it took an Autobot to cast that tank mold in any color besides green.

I was dimly interested in this set for Whirl, but he's getting a Voyager (this or next year?) so I'm passing on this one. Hopefully the other Wreckers get unique molds down the line, too.

I can't help but wonder if this Wreckers set is a pre-cursor to the Wreckers done right. We already know we're getting an amazing Whirl next year, as shown in the Hasbro panel at BotCon. We might even find out some more exciting stuff next Thursday at SDCC. I'd love to see all of the main Wreckers done right, including a proper Impactor. Give me a Rack n' Ruin and an Emirate Xaaron to boot and I'll be extremely happy.

Even if they weren't there from the beginning we have a preceptor, kup, springer, and a few ultra magni.

I agree. I think Hasbro likes to use redecos and retools as a means to "test the waters" for more obscure characters without breaking the bank on a whole new mold. I like such careful thinking, and the creativity forced as a consequence.

Question is, where will they end up? I guess I can use them with GDO Springer and FOC Ultra Magnus.

This set will work wonderfully as my Shattered Glass Wreckers.

Maybe a 3rd Party is observing that will put out a weapons upgrade set including Impactor's shoulder cannon and harpoon like weapon. :VEHI:
