    These are really cool, and I wish I was the type that had the money and room for them, but at this point, PLEASE reissue Crash Hog and Dumpyard, KFC!!!

    Fuck.

    I may be wrong, but have they taken parts from Crash Hog and Dump Yard, spray painted them with grey primer and then added the additional parts to them? It's weird cause you can see the grey paint flaking off the knees and thighs and even on the knuckles.
    Reason I mention this, is that I'm used to seeing grey figures that very early are 3d Printed prototypes, while this looks like a painted figure with some white injection moulded parts stuck on. If so, that may mean it's further along than just protoype? The white parts do look like injection moulded test pieces, so these figures are possibly at the moulding stage and not just the early prototyping stage?

    Not sure how XTB will eventually price and package these, but I'll try to sort out some sort of discount if all 4 are purchased if folks are interested...

    Since they're probably going to reuse the figures "frame" there was no reason to go that route. Simply take off the pieces you don't want and mold or model some new ones and "Bam!" New figure prototype! :)  I bet that's why the spray primer.

    Since all of the upfront cost is done on these and they just need to repaint and make new parts to make new characters. This is an insane money maker for KFC. If they can get people to keep buying them, they'll clean up.

    I hope they also do the other two that were hinted at back when Crashhog and Dumpyard came out.

    If these sell well I'd imagine they'll keep pumping them out.

    I just got a crash hog recently, I don't have Dumpyard, I would like to see a two pack of just Junkions like the two pack with Crash hog.

    I think I'll probably be grabbing the guy with the wheel chest, and the one with the circular shoulders, and between them and the first two, that probably makes for a good enough Junkion army.

    I think I'll get at least two of these four. Maybe all four. But at that pint I'd probably have enough Junkion's - excluding Nancy if someone does her.
    I think between 4 to 6 Junkions is enough for me. A couple in motorcycle mode and the rest lounging nearby in bot mode.
    The thing that's making me happy to spring for these is the differences in moulding and not just mionor paint changes.
    It's why I may not bother with multiple Sweeps, I just need Scourge. Wihout differences between the figures, it jus looks like duplicate toys. Maybe one or two in alt mode flanking Scourge in bot mode would be doable. But I don't really want XTB's Scourge, I'm waiting on FT's - though I do like really want the Starscreams ghost accessory... sorry, rambling a bit now.

    Do you dare to be stupid? Dare to be stupid! Do you?

    Kidding aside, KFC has a whole slew of Junkions to work with just from this one scene alone. They could easily make whatever they wanted out of thin air. May as well call this one, at the very least, Femmeputer, given the simplicity of the other one being Nancy. But who am I kidding!? Bring on more (Junkbot) femmebot fatales!

    The fact nobody made a nancy just amazes me. So much potential for a Truly cool looking Junkeon

    and no fucks given it seems. :( 

    Poor Lithonian Females can't ever catch a break. I mean first they get snuffed by Unicron in the first two mins of the movie. then after they show up in both the movie on the planet of junk in the dancing scene, they get totally ignored and unused as toy ideas after appearing on Junkeon as Junkions in season 3. :(
