It's gotta be one of the clunkiest, blockiest unsophisticated toys I've seen in years.

I am totally ALL OVER THIS; it's the figure I'm looking most forward to next to Swindle.

I love the complete absence of any paint detailing whatsoever. Awesome.

If that means they're focussing on the robot mode then so be it. I bloody LOVE animated Wreck Gar.

"I'm Wreck-Gar! I DARE to be stupid!"

Bugger all mold detailing in his alt mode too. Yet his robot mode looks very cool. Looking forward to him for sure.

This might be a rare animated figure that I would get. Plus, I'm a huge Weird Al fan too.

I just noticed... between the orange cab and the the box-like "hood" around his head... feels like a subtle homage to G1 Huffer. No?

niiiiice..

though one thing kinda jumped out at me though.. not so much about Wreck-Gar.. but the photo..

isnt Yizhi521 the same guy whos recently taken pictures of RotF Soundwave?.. photos which as much as i appreciate, werent the best quality.. yet this one is pretty clear.. very clear infact..

im not digging or poking fun or anything.. just pointing it out is all..

anyway, inner-musings aside.. back to topic..

i may have to pick this one up.. im not a huge fan of Animated.. (the design anyway).. but this is one mold that just oozes character..

ill look forward to seeing this hit shelves :)

Honestly, I think this is probably one of the worst toys from Animated so far. The alt mode just looks so unrealistic, and it lacks detail.

I guess in robot mode he looks okay. Not anything that interests me though.

This is pretty exciting...

except for the fact that I'd be concerned about any little kid who is eager to play with a dumptruck. Anyone want to wager this will be a shelf-warmer after the initial release?

Well that's just it. He isn't a dump truck. He's a garbage truck. I wonder if that lever on the top moves the forks up and such.

What little boy WOULDN'T want to play with a dumptruck? Ever heard of Tonka trucks? No childhood is complete without a sandbox and a Tonka dumptruck.

Anyway, Wreck-Gar isn't a dumptruck.

As opposed to the realism of the rest of the Animated line? Hello... Megatron, OP, Blitzwing, Bulkhead, the Dinobots, Blackarachnia... it's a cartoon, dude. If you want realistic alt modes, that's what Alternators and Movie figures are for.

While quite low on detail it still looks pretty good, and based on the robot mode pics I will be picking this guy up. Even if it means I have to track down a G1 Wreck-Gar too!

I loved Garbage Trucks when I was a kid and I love TransFormers. The best of both worlds are finally colliding :grin: :grin:

I think it’s the general shaping of the toy that I dislike. Some of the other Animated toys looked more convincing than this one, like Bumblebee.

I guess I just don’t like that soft, rounded look he has.
