    Which is why he can't dance on his hands!


    Anyway, if I had ever seen another one besides the one I bought, I'd exchange him, but dude is scarce.

    Any remedy suggestions? (even though having bum parts does seem oddly appropriate for him :wink: )

    Take it back. What else is there to do, unless you've got the skills to change his hand to look like it's right.

    Do we really need a pic for everything?

    Just take it back and get another one.

    Just just your imagination. It looks just like a regular Wreck-Gar except where the right arm should be... there's a second left one!

    And I would simply exchange him except for the fact that the Wreck-Gar that I bought is the ONLY one I've EVER seen ANYWHERE with my own two little eyes. It's not like I got a bum Lugnut...

    You can email or write hasbro and tell them the problem. they usually send a replacement part or even a new figure.

    My animated Jazz had two right hands, did this and they sent me a new one.

    I'm actually curious how his truck mode looks with two left arms. If you have a sec could you post a pic of that? No big deal if you can't. I'm just curious is all. Sorry for your bad luck. I know i hunted him for a long time.

    ha, my g1 wreck-gar have two left arms too. I was wondering for a long time why his elbow can only bend in one direction.

    That's what I like to hear. Because, really, pop off Left #2, snap on a Righty, and the fig is perfect. Seems like a lot of hassle for me to comb the earth AGAIN for a 2nd WG.

    I never had any QC issues with my TF's until Animated came along. Since then, I've got a Jazz with two left hands, Swindle with no thumb and Blurr with a broken wheel.

    If my camera was anywhere near my computer right now, I totally would. But if you have a Wreck-Gar, just pop off and swap the arms. The wheels are still on the outside but don't touch the ground. WG rests on his thumb and bulging forearm on that side. The arm doesn't fit all the way up into the back of the truck, but it's really virtually unnoticeable in alt-mode. It's stands out much more in bot-mode, but still isn't totally glaring. The only thing is his elbow bends the wrong way.

    It really isn't that big of a deal, but if Hasbro would send me the part, that would be awesome.
