If all that orange were light blue I'd be fairly satisfied with him. Still gonna get him to support the fact that Hasbro is doing Comics inspired Wreckers.. I'll just have to do some painting is all.
-ZacWilliam, we still havn't seen pics of Takara's version have we? Still holding out a little hope they go more G1 with em all...
That looks a lot better than I expected it to, but yeah too much orange.
Neat. I'm getting him. And a takara deco if they make him in G1 colours.
I like that this mould pulls of a Universe 2008 Galvatron all over again; vehicle mode is one colour, robot mode is predominantly another colour. Whoo!!!
Yeah the orange is a little disappointing for this figure. But not as bad as the color change was for the Combaticons.
The repaint's tend to look better than the original molds and the Wreckers to me are proof are of that.
Looks pretty decent, and since Vortex was the only damn Combaticon figure with decent shoulders it might be worth picking up.
Not a fan of the orange... honestly makes me feel like this is Action Master Shockwave.
I wish they'd have inverted the blue and orange on him to be more G1 accurate (and I hold out hope that Takara will do exactly that) but even as he is, I think he looks fantastic! That deco is very sharp and I'm VERY excited for this set to get released.
I'm going to pass and hope Hasbro surprises us with a SDCC G1 deco set.
Have these gone up for pre-order anywhere yet?
Yeah lol check BBTS.
As of right now, I don't see this listed at BBTS?
We haven't. At this point we don't know if they're even coming. Hopefully they are.
I'm also hoping they go with more G1 color schemes. It's hard to tell what they may do as every one of the figures so far has been more based on the game than Hasbro's is. With characters that have not, like Blaster, it was just a modified version of the color scheme that figure already had (more red, extra details, etc) as he still featured the comic style head brow rather than the G1 toy / cartoon colored one.
I'm hoping for a blue deco too. Show 'em how it's done, Takara!
I doubt there will be Takara versions. Japan never got Whirl, Roadbuster, or the Jumpstarters in G1, and I don't think western comics are even relevant to Takara's market.
They did get Straxus, but he was just a single figure. This is an entire wave.
Christ, the colors are absolutely hideous.
Still holding out for a Takara/SDCC version with comic colors... and if that doesn't happen, I'll begrudgingly get these because I'm admittedly a sucker for Wreckers.
So these are out in Australia then but not North America? Huh.
Sorry, they are not on BBTS!
Yeah I think I'll pass on this guy. I was excited with the promo shots, but now seeing it with all that orange. Yeah not all that thrilled. Unless Roadbuster wows me, probably just pass on him too and forget trying to make a custom with that head.
They did also get a Comic version of Grimlock... who was one figure that cost as much as an entire wave.
So far, Takara hasn't announced any redecos of Bruticus. This is... uncharacteristic, as they're much more redeco-happy than Hasbro.
