    Okay, so I saw DOTM yesterday, and thoroughly enjoyed the Wreckers, even though they, like all other transformers did not get enough screen time.

    The Wreckers just came off as off-the-hook badass, and now I am trying figure out what the best way to get these guys is and how to display them.

    Cyberverse figures is a given, I just need to get Roadbuster now. But I can't decide if I should get the HA versions or get the DLX's. I also have a problem with the DLX's because the current releases, so far have Topspin decked out with guns ablazing and Roadbuster is streamlined ready to hit the track and not speed through a post apocalyptic Mad Max-esque version of Chicago.

    I am really leaning towards the guns out versions of all them, when they become available. But the decision will be a little easier to make once we get some pics of the DLX Leadfoot and the boxset of Leadfoot and Twintist?

    So what about you? How are you displaying your Wreckers? Which versions will you use?

    Show some Wrecker love!

    Personally I loved the Wreckers' role in the movie, though it was small. I have decided that I'm going to buy all three deluxe Wreckers and the Cyberverse Roadbuster. I already bought the Leadfoot in the 2- pack with Ironhide.

    I will end up getting two of each Deluxe, and hopefully two of each HA figure (though I don't know if that will be in my budget right now) to display them in both modes. They came out really well both on-screen, and as toys.

    Im holding off on then until we see all 3 weaponised in one size class.
    Come on Hasbro, its not that hard of a request.

    I'll even settle for Legion class, you just need Topspin.

    I loved topspin and roadbusters on screen representations. Leadfoot just looked like a robotic santa claus to me though.

    "This is going to hurt-a LOT!" Who said that? Leadfoot?

    I do remember on scene where Leadfoot was running and his hood was bouncing much like a giant beer belly, thought it was somewhat funny and sad all at the same time.

    But my concern about the toys is that they have not released pics of all three either weaponised or straight track mode. I really would like Hasbro to give a heads up on this before the older waves become harder to find. This is assuming that massive influx of toys everywhere from Walmart to Family Dollar do not become a big steaming pile of shelwarmers, like our brave little toaster, Ejector and who can forget Mudflap.

    I think it was Leadfoot, when they were ripping apart that drone's pilot.

    Another Badass moment was when OP called on the Wreckers.

    I will get legion and deluxe versions.Maybe HA Topspin too(if they make it) if it looks cool and is weaponized
    I really hope hasbro will release weaponized Roadbuster.I have a clean one but it just doesn't work for me too well ,since I'm not really a Nascar fan

    I'm still looking for legion Roadbuster. I loved how Bay portrayed them as Scottish rather than stereotypical rednecks, and I thought the accents suited them well! Hopefully an HA Topspin gets made.

    I loved these guys, and I HATE Nascar & rednecks! Very cool, so glad they weren't another played out (pandering to the CARS Mater kids) stereotype. I think I will buy all of them in all of the different classes. So there are two deluxes, 1 HA (and 1 not out), and two legion figures? So awesome, and I don't know why. :dunce
