    The other day when I was looking at Reverb I notice some junkion features, from his head, to his body, and to his feet. I was wonder if anyone else gets a junkion vibe from him?

    Wow, he kinda does. It's really his head above all else.

    He's DOTM Terrorsaur as far as I'm concerned. :)

    He's got some actual BW Inferno references, apparently. (Colors and "Calany" / For the Colony!)

    That's RotF Reverb.

    Personally, RotF Reverb was Movieverse Road Rocket.

    Huh, he DOES look somewhat like a Junkion. I've mostly disliked the HA Basics, and this one in particular for his half-hearted, indecipherable alt mode, but man, this almost makes me want to get him just to swell Classics Wreck-Gar's ranks a bit. As a Junkion his cluttery mess of an alt mode would even make some sense. Maybe slap a bit of brown and tan paint on there somewhere... hmmm...

    Actually some of the other HA Basics would make good Junkions too. Other motorcyles and similar vehicles, with junky alt modes, could fit it well. And Whirl is even already in Junkion colors. Interesting.

    Durp, you're right, I just got the two confused.

    The coloration (red, black, yellow, and silver), the way the hoverbike evokes a flying animal of some kind (to me), the asshole look on his face. I don't mind if it wasn't intended, or no one else sees it, it just makes me happy. :)

    He invokes a Marcross style for me.

    Actually if you alter the alt mode a bit, the hover-bike mode looks better then the offical way.

    Funny you should mention this, since I've been wanting a Whirl repaint in Waspinator colors, and I have a theory that Waspinator's either a Junkion himself or a descendant, judging by his resilience and ability to be rebuilt... :confused2

    I've always gotten a Junkion vibe out of the Tailpipe mold.
