We had reported a listing for an upcoming deluxe Wreck-Gar last year in July and only now do we finally have a look at the figure (and further proof at its existence).

Manterax Prime gave us word of this toy appearing on the Transformers page of a Russian version of Facebook with tulips and the Russian word for "March" boldly written in front of him. Definitely an odd way to announce a product.

Manterax Prime wrote:Courtesy of Appolo16 on TFW and the Russian social network Vkontakte, we have our first look at the supposed Walgreens Exclusive Power of the Primes Wreck-Gar.

Credit to TFW's own Nevermore for finding the original source on Vkontakte.


In the image below you can see that he uses the Combiner Wars Groove mold with a new head. This now brings the tally up to four confirmed non dinobot autobot limbs in Power of the Primes that could be given to the Elita-1 combiner.

At first, I was hoping to see if it'd make a great substitute for Wreck-Gar because I can't find the RTS one for a good price. Then I saw that it was a CW Groove mold, and I don't think it works well for WG. Shame because Wreck-Gar is one of my few favorite characters in the G1 cartoon.

You know what we could have gotten out of this Groove mold? TITANS RETURN SIDEWAYS!

well, that's underwhelming, but at this point, ill take any limb that assists to finishing off the incomplete combiners. No word on who will offer the exclusive, or price point yet...???

I guess just like Groove and Groove Jr. (my CW Legends Groove), now I'll have Wreck-Gar & WGJr. :lol: though they wont even be on the same team

Underwhelming indeedy. But I might be game for this figure if of the flower's an accessory. I know it's not but wishful thinking.

It's a Walgreen's exclusive. It was found in their computers months ago and it should be standard deluxe price.

So it's not getting a higher price for an exclusive then? Intriguing

It doesn't look too bad, I hope it comes packed with one of the unaccounted for Prime Masters, either Prima, Nexus Prime or Amalgamous Prime. If it does I'll definitely buy one, but even if it doesn't I may still stick it on my Lynxmaster.

Not really, TR Brainstorm didn't get an exclusive price and was also a Walgreen's exclusive. Exact same scenario here. Now Walgreen's price will vary from store to store, but that will be the same for all deluxes, not just the exclusives. Should be in the $18 to $20 range depending on the location and how much they charge for deluxes.

If it is Walgreen's, then I'm guessing it will just be a standard deluxe, same packaging and unfortunately no extras. Just like Brainstorm was.

Do what I did and throw a couple decepticon toyhax stickers over his autobot emblems and give him to Megatronia's team. The color works amazing in combined mode and completes the missing highlighter color going on with the limbs.

I call mine Jester (Joker was too Batman-ish) to go with the card theme, he's basically their toady.

I guess I will get him to add to my collection of Junkions & to have as an extra combiner limb option like I did picking up Rook & CW Blastoff after getting UW Defensor & Bruticus. Too bad it's an exclusive, so that will make it a bit more of a pain to acquire than it needs to be.

Has it ever happened in the US that an exclusive was more expensive than non exclusive toys in the same line?

The only time an exclusive deluxe was more expensive was because it came with more stuff, like TR ARcee wth extra Magnus. But the hgher price is because it comes with more stuff, not because its exclusive.

Kinda, at least. As recently as last year TRU was charging $19.99 for Skullitron and flying wing Megatron despite everywhere (in my experience TRU included) going for $16ish on normal TLK deluxes. Also, it seems like a tough argument that Arcee and Grotusque don’t have a markup; sure they come with more, but one Titan Master can’t really be said to be worth the $9 difference when the Titan Master + drone sets are $5.

TRU sold all TLK deluxes for 19.99. As did all retailers at first except for Walmart.

I could be wrong, but IIRC all the May mayhem releases for CW (Quicksling, Breakneck, and Groove), were initially more expensive than standard deluxes which were $15 at the time. I know the first 2 sold out quickly so after market prices went through the roof. Groove was actually released multiple times, and at one point had a price point almost identical to retail, but still always slightly more



Additionally yeah the TRU TR Arcee and Grotusque. Most retailers had TR Deluxe around $15, even if you consider TRU prices around $18 and add the partially Die Cast TM, one wonders if its worth $6-$8 for that alone...

The May mayhem deluxe's were the same price as the regular retail figures I got all three of them for around $16 a piece.
