Oh, so THAT's what those are. I gather they don't attach to the bike, huh? Are they entirely new pieces or retooled from something else?

So, refresh my memory, is the main break point on this mold the fingers snapping off if you actually have him hold his axe, like with the ROTF Bludgeon mold? Cuz I just put it in his right hand once, and already there are stress marks. I'm worried that even pegging in the Spiders will do further damage. Anyone advise removing and boiling the hands?

I'd better check on all my actual Wreck-Gar's and Junkheaps; I might've left some armed!

The main break point on the mold is the handlebars snapping off because A)you manually transform them instead of auto-transforming them or B)they're too tight for even autotransforming. The hand stress marks are a known issue, but I've been searching and it seems like there aren't many reports of broken hands. The spiders seem to peg in without stressing the hands.

Have there been any issues with the handle bars since they've done the remold after Wreck-Gar's initial release?

I think the general consensus is cut them off, it's the only way to be sure.

Still? Hmm. The remold cut them down pretty far already.

I really can't think of anyone Junkheap and later who I had the same concerns as Wreck-Gar when converting them.

I have every version of the Wreck Gar mold. Multiples of all the domestics and Botcon versions. No issues or breakage with ANY of them. This figure is gorgeous. So happy to see that the Micron paint apps made it after all. I do wish they had the little transparent gem bits though. My only complaint.
:BOT:

Definitely not looking like a master of Metallikato there, 'Bludgeon'. :P

I'm sure you know this but this is based on his G1 inner body and the skull design is his pretender shell.

I didnt sign up this year as Impactor is the only one I really wanted. Needlenose would have been great with a new head and on the Air Raid body. That one looks almost matching his current IDW comic look perfect. But without that its not enough. He has such a unique looking head/face that he needed a new mould.

What does his shell have to do with him being skilled at Metallikato? He would still be the same character and fight as best as he could. The pose here makes him look more like a brawler.

Besides, I'm not wearing my gi but I still know karate. :P

I don't know every part of his fiction, but wasn't his shell persona more of a samurai, and his inner bot persona more of a wannabe master of dark magic, or just a regular soldier type?

Really not liking the new artwork of Impactor. It shows the right hand as a complete stump with the claw attached. I would've like to have seen the fist as well, like the left arm.

You do realize he lost that hand, or never had it in the first place, right?

The toy still has an obvious hand. And the Character can have a right hand.

Yes the figure still has a hand, but I thought that they left it unpainted to emulate that the figure has no right hand Image

The art is just to express the character it represents in a way that they just could not in toy form.
