    Just got him in... he's fantastic. the head might take some getting used to, but overall a great figure. tons of articulation and detail. Impressive alt mode.

    Points of articulation :

    • Head on ball joint
    • Shoulders ball joint
    • Bicep swivel joint
    • elbows
    • claws open (slightly)
    • waist articulated
    • hips on ball joints
    • knees double jointed/hinged
    • feet on ball joints
    • hinge + ball joint on backpack kibble

    Dayumn. That's pretty wicked looking... I was hoping I could save some money by skipping the DotM figures, but I may have to cave...

    Sweet. I've been very underwhelmed with the majority of the DOTM line so far, but the Wreckers are floating my boat big time.

    I know that head reminds me of something, but I can't place it (can't we just give the robots more generic heads instead of stereotypes?)

    I've been really impressed by the overall small backpacks (Crankcase and Roadbuster being exceptions) and increase in articulation in this line. I can't wait for the figures!

    There are 2 things i can say after seeing these pictures:

    1-He is smiling.
    2-He has a Bumblebee face as torso. :p 

    REally nice mold and for what you are telling us its VERY articulated. I like that a lot. Thanks for the gallery, its awesome. ;)

    Judging by his transformation, I'm guessing it's a pretty tall deluxe?

    Brilliant photos and an informative review!

    Helped me decide to pass on this one. So far the only Wrecker of interest to me is Roadbuster.

    A mullet?! Seriously? Call me when the inevitable redeco comes around and I'll take a second look

    I think I'll see DOTM in the theaters just out of gratitude for the toyline saving my wallet.

    It's NOT a mullet. It's a daedalic hairstyle, associated with ancient Greece. It's very much like dreadlocks, actually.

    Badass, I don't know why there is so much hate for movie toys, take them for what they are. Though, the headsculp on this one is plain fugly? somebody has to come up with an ideal headswap on this one, I do hope the other wreckers have badass headsculp suitable for such characters

    Yeah it's a mullet. Think about Michael Bays previous efforts at humour. Why wouldn't he make robot that turns into NASCAR covered in guns a redneck character. It's just too easy in his scheme of things to go for the lowest common denominator, hence stereotypes. Ughh!

    Although I hope he never opens his mouth in the movie, please God, I don't really mind the "Iacon Waterfall" on a NASCAR Transformer. The blue spiked hair bugs me more.

    Great review. DOTM looks to have the best robot designs of all 3 movies. They are no longer shredded scrap metal looking bots but actually more boxy like Transformers usually are.
