    Amazing what a G1 weapon will do for a generations toy to differentiate it from a mould mate. (Ignore the chipped up desk top)

    I can never quite tell if I love or hate Wreck-Gar. My spoiled friend, the guy that got all the cool toys, loved Wreck-Gar. I think Simon Furman liked him a lot, or at the very least was really into the fun he could have with Wreck Gar’s speech patterns. And he seemed to get a fairly prominent part in any of the TF:Uk stories he turned up in. But I think he might have actually been an incredibly annoying character.

    But I felt the peer pressure when I was little and somehow Wreck-Gar was a big deal. Sure he helped put Magnus back together, sure he fixed Bumblebee into Goldbug, sure he got his ‘tasche burnt by Quintesson guards but uh…was that it? Who cares? You could use him to get quotes from old TV programmes in. Done deal.

    Alongside Rodimus Prime, Wreck Gar felt like the ’86 equivalent of a ‘Deluxe Autobot’; a little bit bigger than the other guys coming out, but not up at the top of the scale chart or price point. Ok, he was a motorbike. And Transforming Motorbikes were cool. There’s a reason that Groove was my favourite ‘Scramble City’ limb. But hey, here’s another hottake; Super Gobot Cy-Kill was a better bike-former than Wreck-Gar. Wreck-Gar even stole Cy-Kill’s design for the front wheel.

    In bot mode Wreck-Gar has some nice features, like that nice chrome-y chest, and some nice arm articulation, but still manage to look a bit awkward. That helmet is so so so big. I know there’s probably not much more they could do within the limitations of the time, but it really looks so bulky. The fact his knees bend back also drives me a bit crazy. It’s not unknown in TF designs, but it always makes me wince. The big let down of the bike mode is those legs just sitting there looking like legs. Urk.

    I came into collecting too late to get the Reveal the Shield figure and then was too put off by the scare stories about him to actually dare to pick one up. So for the last few years of CHUG collecting Wreck-Gar has been a gap I could have closed at any point. I guess it helps that John Barber didn’t actually bring him in until near the end of the IDW-verse. So of course when the PotP Wreck-Gar finally got leaked (this guy’s been a rumour since like, Combiner Wars?) I was all over it.

    As if you didn’t already know, PotP Wreck Gar is a redo of Unite Warriors Groove. And frankly it’s a pretty poor fit for Wreck-Gar. Wreckgar had such a distinctive look, from his windshield head to his tit cannons and metallic engine chest, and PotP Wreck Gar has none of these features.

    As bad as all that is, the fact that the ‘bot mode has such a tiny little pinhead is really the worst thing. I mean, it’s not a bad head mold by any stretch. It’s not amazing, but it certainly looks like Wreck Gar. But the rest of the body is so hideously generic that it looks like a random ’86 combiner limb.

    Oh, yes. Right.

    The bike mode isn’t awful. but it’s simply that the detail all seems have gone into windshield, lights and front wheel, with the rest of the bike seeming a bit bland and blocky. But the windsheild and lights are very pretty, so I really can’t totally write it off. Adding to the overall feeling of this being a cheap afterthought is the addition of a weapon accesory from the RtS Wreck Gar.

    With the agenda of of the incoming WfC trilogy clearly being a reset I’ve felt a bit funny about updates of characters like Ultra Magnus and Springer, toys where I’ve felt the recent versions were superb and whom I wouldn’t wish to replace. Wreck Gar? I’m near praying at them to take a gimmick free stab at the dude. Turns out I like him enough to wish that for him.
