After the stock images appeared a while back for the Power of the Primes exclusive Wreck-Gar, we also now have some in hand images thanks to regular source of toy news Hobbymizer - the Hong Kong based Facebook group - and its users Oscar Fung and Andy Leung!

The images show both the vehicle and robot mode, including the new head and reused accessory for the Junkion, and the compatibility with the Prime Masters (Onyx Prime shown in some shots here), the instructions showing how to attach the weapon, and some of the poses this reuse of Combiner Wars Groove can strike. Check it out below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub Discussion boards!

Sad question...

but is there a picture from the side of the box to see which combiner they recommend he goes with??


even though Blackwing just shows a picture of his jet mode :-(

Good Question, but they could literally put wreck-gar with anyone. The logical choice would be Inferno, (that's my plan at least) but with a lack of limbs, you could combine him with anyone.

My plan is to give him to Elita Infin1te as a leg.

Thanks to those antennae of his. Gotta make the head small enough so it can fit inside the body while keeping his classic antenna-ed head design.

Isn't it more like 'thanks to the boring re-use of a mold that was designed for another character and not specifically Wreck-Gar at all'?

Not like we would have gotten a Deluxe CW Wreck-Gar any other way.

I like Wreck-Gar but i never even once asked for a CW toy of him forcing the combiner gimmick he never had before. A re-release of the RTS figure (with some improvements to fix the flaws some folk had, mine didn't and I regret selling it) would have been more preferable but nah, it don't fit the line's gimmick (and we got a cruddy little one anyways too). Although technically this is Power of the Primes Wreck-Gar and not Combiner Wars anyways which was two toylines ago and we'd had a whole load of non-headmasters become headmasters since then too but they keep shoving that combining stuff in half the toys anyways no matter if it makes sense or not. I never really thought of Wreck-Gar even being that much of an Autobot to want to combine with a group of them. I thought Junkions were technically allies rather than fellow troops. I dunno. Enjoy, folks. I'm off to get ready for a final rehearsal. eep. :D

I still can't wait for this Wreck-Gar to come out. Do I wish it had spiky wheels? Yeah. Do I wish it looked a bit more asymmetrical? Sure. But at the same time, I like this mold, at least from my experience with Groove, the Junkion color scheme on this mold looks gorgeous, and combining Junkions is something I've wanted to see for a while now. They're a whole subsection of bots who modify/rebuild themselves from whatever bits of scrap they can find, it just makes sense to me that they could rebuild themselves into combiner parts or whole combiners if they put their minds to it.

Plus, even though I like his usual asymmetrical design, the lack of asymmetry on this figure does remind me of Animated Wreck-Gar, which is awesome. ;)^

But the most important question: Can he ride himself?

I'm actually pretty excited for this guy! Reminds me of my G1 toy of him in alt mode.

I want that Wreck-Gar!

Question on my mind is not WHETHER to buy... it's how many, and how could I repaint him/swap heads to look like other junkions. I must spend some time pondering paint schemes.

The other question that constantly pops into my mind now is:
How would the Takara "Unite Warriors" nicer-paint-app version look if it existed

Besides that, I've been pondering names for a Junkion gestalt for days, too. If anyone has any excellent ones, drop em below!

Like all TakaraTomy PotP toys: the same as the Hasbro ones :lol: He will be released there alongside Nemesis Prime as numbers PP-41 and PP-42.

Junkyard? Debris? Rustbucket? Spareparts? Assembly? Re-Cycle, if they're mostly or all motorcycles? Drivetrain, since it's one defined named system of parts made of a combination of other parts? Wreckage?

I dunno if they qualify as excellent, but they're what I've got so far.

Dude, seriously, STOP self-censoring yourself. Let the forum filter take care of it.
