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!

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).

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.

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.

That's the only thing that stopping me from getting these guys. That we'll eventually get better, original versions later on. Whirl, who is the weakest of this set due to his poor and inaccurate color scheme, is getting an original mold. And I suspect that's probably why they gave him such an inaccurate color scheme. To differentiate the two.

Plus the club is doing Ironfist as a subscription figure. I'm honestly surprised they didn't save him for a box set of Wreckers. That surely would have been a slam dunk box set for FunPub. The fact that they're not seems like they know we will see more original Wreckers some time soon.

Like wise. Seeing all these repaints makes me upset as well. I'm really smdh. I still can't get over that I wasted 80 or so dollars on generations bruticus. This entire situation with this toy is Not Good. What other toy maker just throws some different paint on a figure and then goes " hey everybody, here is a new toy". No, that's not a new toy, you just painted it a different color. :HEADHURTS:
And just the sight of these makes me want to forget about hasbro and only collect Masterpieces.

The first years of G1 had plenty of repaints and retools yet nobody complained... :roll:

Repaints and retools are a necessary evil though. Hasbro has stated that in order to break even with the costs of the development of a toy, the mold has to have at least two different releases.

A figure should get no more than one repaint. And if hasbro wants to do more than one then the second repaint has to be a drastic retool like Generations Sandstorm and mp-Smokescreen. This is how I fell and my opinion.

Let's make no one buy Transformers anymore. That way, Hasbro will pull the plug on the franchise and all our toys will magicaly become priceless treasures. We will bask in the brand that is now rended irrelevant.

If it were YOUR money on the line, you would think differently. I really dont mind normal retail repaints/retool because if I love a mold very much, I can have it again in a new way. Somethime, a given transformers is butt-ugly and just horrible looking. Then, a shiny new coat of paint and/or some new molded details and MAGIC! We just got one of the best transformers ever.

I bought and hated the G2 FOC Bruticus set. However, I just saw the FOC Wreckers and I burn with desire to buy them.

Dont forget that creating brand new molds is costly. To pay for these new molds, money need to be made. For the price a mold is, the most popular ones MUST be used again to make them profitable. It's simple economics. Repaints dont prevent new stuff for coming out. Repaints HELP the new stuf from getting out.

Also, dont want the thing? Dont but it. It's as simple as that.

you're obviously too narrow minded to get the point. so allow me to break it down barney style for you.

hasbro rakes in millions per year. they can afford to not reuse the same molds 6 times over.

so while you're face palming yourself, try to push your head outta your ass.

Seibertron & Goldrabbit have interesting points though.. it would definitely be legit if this set was only released to pique an interest and hasbro has plans to release the Wreckers as they should be released. as a no nonsense, stand alone, must have collectible set. cuz goddamnit, they deserve it. they kick aft in every continuity they're presented in. and Last Stand of the Wreckers is one of the best books ever written. hasbro's sittin on a goldmine with these guys.

Posted by Seibertron on July 10th, 2013 @ 8:38pm CDT
I think you guys have to look at all of these releases of the same product in the past year a little differently. Part of the big picture that none of us truly understand is how the profits earned from a product like this might move the ball forward on other products we're interested in. It might be that an upcoming product actually gets green lighted, official approval, past the prototype stage, etc. It might be that it helps generate revenue for a Lamborghini license stateside that Hasbro's upper management might have been telling the Transformers brand team or marketing that they don't need. It might push the bar a little closer to Hasbro getting more shelf space for Transformers.

As a collector of this brand for almost 30 years, I know there is a slew of product that isn't intended for me personally. I don't have to like everything that has the Transformers brand on it. However, I understand the needs to push out a product like this because it just makes the Transformers money pot a little bigger so that we get awesome things like Metroplex, Sandstorm, Rhinox, Masterpiece Soundwave, etc.

If we knew that the profits generated from toys like Bruticus/Ruination meant that the next Masterpiece toy was greenlighted, I bet we'd all look at things like this a little differently.

Some of us fans remember when only 20 to 30 Transformers products came out per year during the 90s. There have been at least 50 new Transformers products that have come out worldwide in the past few months with a whole onslaught of new products coming down the pipes. It's a great time to be a fan. There is a little something for everyone right now.

hmm.. i find your insight to be highly... logical.

i, for one, collected all of the graphic novels instead of the toys, so i've never really thought about the reasoning behind why they push products the way they do. this Wreckers set is the first line that i actually want to own for myself. i'm glad i read that, because it made me think outside the box a lil. now, i'll probably buy two of each, leave one set combined and have the others as singles set up as guards for my graphic novel shelf. i just hope that the sales for this set tells hasbro that the Wreckers are and always have been ready for the big leagues. i know Pyro would be proud.

Posted by Seibertron on July 10th, 2013 @ 11:10pm CDT
Just think of it this way ... hopefully profits generated by things like Kre-o, Bot Shots, endless repaints, mold reuses (i.e. filler products), branded licensed products that you see on greeting cards, paper plates, birthday supplies, balloons, t-shirts, shoes, etc help out on the R&D side of things for figures like Metroplex, Masterpiece Soundwave, Rhinox, and other figures that you really want. I think if you strip away all of the "filler" product, you'll find that we get far more products each year that we are really pleased with than we ever used to get back in the day. Funding for a toy like Metroplex came from somewhere. It wasn't just a wild shot in the dark. Something happened sales wise with some other products to justify to upper management that they should take a gamble on the biggest Transformers toy ever made in 26 years. While I'm pretty sure that the profits for one brand are probably pretty tied to that particular brand as for as R&D goes, but I'm sure there has to be some crossover on the books between something like last year's huge Avengers helicarrier and the Star Wars Millennium Falcon with Metroplex. If not profit-wise, at least from a "hey, we can sell these big giant toys for these brands easily let's give it a shot again with Transformers". Or maybe I have no idea what I'm talking about and I'm just tossin' out worthless theories. Either way, I look at that Metroplex toy next to me right now on my gallery table and I'm just in awe that we got this thing.

Bottom line: Hasbro, please repaint Bruticus a few more times so that I can get a proper Metrotitan out of Metroplex. Thanks.

Remember that Fortmax have at least 2 repaints. So, I can bet that if Metroplex sell well, it WILL be repainted as another character. Some may BAAAAWWWW that it will make their Metroplex less unique... I will not repeat what was already said, but Hasbro Metroplex ALREADY have one repaint: The Takara version. Maybe even a 3rd one if you count the SDCC one... And they arent even out yet!

Y'know, the more I look at Ruination and the Wreckers, the more I like them. My only gripe is that Impactor's deco should be reversed. Would look much cooler if the indigo/purple was the majority of the figure. Also, with Generations: Thrilling 30 Whirl coming down the drain, I'm probably going to repurpose this Whirl as a separate character on my Classics shelf.

I could actually see Fun Pub doing something similar with the Wreckers as they did with Nexus Prime; offer the individual members as freebies or TFSS figures as a second Wreckers combiner. It would look much better than the current one, in my opinion.

We've seen some reviews of these figures, but it's now time to feast our eyes on some lengthy Seibertron-style galleries! Ryan has added galleries for wave 1 of the Generations Thrilling 30 line: Megatron, Orion Pax, Trailcutter and Bumblebee - click on each name for the full gallery, or on any of the images below.

Orion Pax and Trailcutter look good. I really need to get back into the Generations line, I've got some catching up to do.

And here I was all set to skip Orion and Megatron...

That Megatron is such a disappointment and SMDH @ Bumblebee being the tallest figure out of the wave.

Pax and Trail are bought on site but the other two are a fumbled pass.

Nice galleries as always. These figures are sitting in my pile of loot. I'm hoping someone does a G1 cartoon accurate head for Orion Pax. I'm not digging the Prime with a mouth look that IDW chose to glorify. A head to turn Bumblebee into a new character would also be welcome.

The shoulders on Trailcutter are mistransformed. Rotate the silver bits up so they tab onto the side mirrors.

We are getting a Goldfire (read Goldbug) retool of that mold later on:

This may sound like a silly request, but is there a way to do comparison shots between Gen. Bumblebee and Classics Bumblebee? Same for Gen. Orion Pax and Classics Optimus Prime to show his evolution?

Ack. Thanks for letting me know, rosewater. It fits together much better now.

While I like Orion and Megatron, I'm just never crazy about any version of Prime and Megs that's not at the least Voyager. Well, that and a Bumblebee bigger than Megatron?? Bumblebees should always be Legend or cyberverse commander IMHO. That and the yellow of Bee, I'm just not feeling. He'll be the last of the set I get (because the completist in me won't let me not get him).

Glad it's not just me as far as that color goes. I was wondering if it was just how the light hit it or if it was really just that darn "loud" in color. That and the aforementioned height issue will make this one the last in the set for me as well but I will still snag him. All the others are bought on sight. I think Hasbro finally released a wave of 4 figures that I will actually look forward to picking up all of. That hasn't happened in a long time for me.
