Thanks to a tip from Seibertronian bacem, we're happy to share the sudden appearance of stock images for the exclusive Deluxe-class Power of the Primes Wreck-Gar! These pictures surfaced on TFND's Facebook page, and show off the upcoming figure in robot and vehicle modes, along with a look at the toy in packaging and the back of the card!

Worthy of note here is that on top of coming with a new head, this new figure also appears to possess the axe-weapon from the older Reveal the Shield Wreck-Gar. We also have no proper confirmation on where it will be available or exclusive too as of yet, but TFND's post hints at it being a potential Walgreens exclusive, which would make sense with the appearance of such a listing in Walgreens' database nearly a year ago. Check out the (machine-translated) post from TFND, and the images, below!

Does this new Wreck-Gar catch your eye, or will you be giving it a pass? Let us know your thoughts by posting in the Energon Pub forums! And as always, Seibertron will keep bringing you Transformers news as it happens, so don't touch that dial!

WxlGrxxn Exclusive POTP Wreck-Gar
It's basically from the cw groove.
The Head Eagle is new. It's different from that of the previous generation.
The weapons are stolen from ancient morning.
It is a qualifier. I hope taiwan can also be represented.

Oh hell yes!
Now how many Hasbro Afterbreakers will be sacrificed to be other junkions? :-?

But, Groove's guns were part of the bike mold. Did they retool the Prime Master module to slot in the back, because there's no peg hole.

This Wreck-Gar actually looks pretty damned good, despite being a headswap with CW Deluxe Groove. The colors, while not especially accurate to the G1 cartoon, look great and evoke the character well. That headsculpt is wicked too. It's a shame that the mold is so symmetrical. I always liked how Wreck-Gar had the wheels both to one side in his character model. It made him stand out among the Season 3 Autobots with a very unique silhouette. This won't replace my United Wreck-Gar on my Classics shelves, but he will be a welcome addition to Firestormer (a.k.a., whatever Inferno's team will be).

It's a lot better than the godawful CW Legend class figure but not a patch on the RTS/United figure. It still just looks so...normal? I dunno how to explain. Like he's officially an autobot rather than a junkion. I dunno.

Exactly what I was getting at above. He looks so clean and symmetrical now, not lopsided and "junky" like his G1 self. It's still a good looking figure, with a great head sculpt and nice paint apps and plastic color choices. If anyone didn't have the Reveal the Shield or United version of Wreck-Gar, this would do. For me, having the United version, this PotP version is just going to be a limb for a combiner that needs another team member.

I can't help but to think this figure is missing something.

Third-party Transformer nipples when?

Unrelatedly... hmm, I wonder if it might be possible to get some lopsided wheels going on after all? Rotate his backpack to the wheel is sticking more out to one side than the other, fold the wheel-half on his right leg back but leave the left one forward - it wouldn't be perfect but it'd make a bit of a difference!

I know finaly a smmetrical Wreck-gar :DANCE: . My OCD has been going nuts over Wreck-gar for years :HEADHURTS:. He just looks awesome all around, and personaly I've never liked the RtS version so I'm not super happy about him get the RtS weapon.

I think he looks quite good, so good in fact that I think hasbro should create a junkion combiner (called junkpile ideally) in the war for Cybertron line.

looks pretty good! the groove mode is one of my favourite of the CW limbs...

I like the original generations wreckgarr too though he was a bit overly fiddly to transform. The CW limbs might be a bit repetitive in their transformations patterns and by the 50th figure fatigue sets in, however it's quick and intuitive and ultimately more fun than having 50 different fiddly transformations...

Problem I find is that to me this is just a boring figure and Wreck-Gar shouldn't be boring. I never had any issues with the RTS mold during the time I had the figure (why the heck did I sell it?) but I would be quite happy for Hasbro to try again and fix the flaws folk had with it (and I would still like a good attempt to be made for the head to turn into the front of the bike like it should be... the original G1 toy did it but resulted in a massive helmet, the RTS figure avoided it altogether and ended up with a small head and the actual front of bike on his leg, this CW mold version has a tiny head too). Are there any third party Wreck Gars? I'd be interested in seeing how other companies attempted it. I nto sure I'd like a G1-toon accurate toy as he was a bit blocky for my tastes but still would like to see what they would do

update:Zero Wolf kindaly pm'd me about 3P Wreck Gars so no need to mention it in a non-third party thread. Moving on. :)

Wreck-Gar looks okay enough, it's a shame he doesn't come packed with one of the three missing Prime Masters (it would SUCK if they never happened), but I may still get one if I can find it for a good price, primarily just to add some orange to my collection's colour palette and give my Lynxmaster a new arm.

Dear Hasbro,

Exclusives don't need the Power of the Primes cards.

How am I ever going to get THE specific one I am looking for?

Why?

Sincerely,
Me and all the other people that can't help but fall for the whole card-variant-collection-crap.

while it is intriguing to see news of release happening in other parts of the world, I am curious as to what exactly is going on in the United States. Is it just my area? I have not seen any new product in the last month aside from Studio Series. I mean I know RiD15 is done, so I would not expect to see more, but I have seen no new PotP (aside form some wave 1 deluxe about 6 weeks ago). In the last month, much of the studio series that came in stock has moved, not all of it, but about 75%. I appreciate that Hasbro is being more conservative with this line, as opposed to AoE & TLK which were way overproduced, but still...where are all the Transformers? Even stores that seemingly got more stock in than others are basically vapid at this point. Of course I'm not wasting gas checking all 20+ stores in my area that I could check, but I check 3 to 4 different ones per week based on my commute to work, and when I go grocery shopping, and they are all the same. There was even a specialty toys store in the mall that I was hoping to find something unique at, and they had nothing. Sure they had all the latest Star Wars, Infinity War, and Jurassic Park Product. Just because TF doesn't have a movie coming out that means all it's product lines have to suffer? Could Transformers actually be like GI Joe and disappear from toy shelves entirely, if Hasbro deems its not relevant after the BB movie push ends sometime in late 2019? Of course I'm being overly dramatic, but I wonder sometimes. Not seeing anything new from PotP for several weeks on end gives me cause for concern, even if its old product. This is something that did not happen with CW, or TR. The shelves may have kept on getting the same old stuff I had already seen, but at least it was continuously coming out on a regular basis.

I'm not the biggest fan of the deluxe Groove mold, but this Wreck-Gar deco brings out some the nice detail the mold has to offer. I'm digging it. Deprnding on the scenario, he may just be a rando Junkion in my CHUG world, but actually he'll probably just be combined all the time. Not sure with who yet, though.

O.Sups, where is "Sacto"? Sacramento? Just curious. Trying to put your distro woes on the map. This shoty stocking of wave 2 is definitely an anomaly, but I feel like the beginning of Summer is always a low point in action figure supply and demand. Store always seem to push outdoor play this time of year. As do parents.
And I think you are being a tad dramatic. :lol: ;)
Remember, Hasbro's reports stated that TFs was their number one seller last year.

I will say though, the end of the Prime Wars Trilogy is feeling underwhelmingly anti-climatic. Just feels like it's fizzling out. :(

I certainly like deluxe Wreck-Gar over the CW Legend we recently got! But perhaps that li'l guy could catch a ride lol

I'm hoping to hunt him and wave3 soon! Still waiting on wave2 PMs.....but the Studio Series has been fun.

Yeah it's Sacramento. "The Place You Love to leave" :lol: For a top 20 market in terms of population, we seem to get the short end of the stick more often than not. Still I know Distribution issues are much bigger than my city.

I was just thinking about TR Trypticon. Sure having a chain like Ollies (which is only east of the Mississippi, and nowhere north of NY). Have them for sale at $50 *and as low as $20 In some spots before that) is great for a small section of the fandom, but what about everyone else? I'm sure Hasbro would wish to sell all of them for a MSRP $150. now of course, there is always room for loss accounted for, but even selling them on HTS for $50 I would think would be fairer, and just as profitable, if not more so, than through a minor retailer. Why this happened I cannot say, but there is definitely a huge problem that needs to be addressed soon.
