    You know what? I'll say it right now: I absolutely LOVE that head. It just kinda.....fits. We've seen bots in other continuity with cap-shaped helmets, so it doesn't really bother me all that much.

    Bot mode and car mode both look really nice. Also like that the cars seem to have spring-loaded mechtech ports to eliminate any unsightly holes that most people were moaning about.

    Thanks for the review!

    So far, the Wreckers are the only thing on my "must have" list for the new movie line.

    As a huge Dale Earnhardt Jr. fan,I'll be getting two of these.One for robot mode and one to keep as the race car.

    That back kibble is worse than any twin head and kinda ruins it for me. The actual head on it at least looks decent with the visor.

    no doubt in my mind that this is Wheeljack! The green and white give it away. I'm pretty disappointed, since he is cooler than this.

    I was really expecting these 3 Nascar-bots to be Decepticons pretending to be Autobots - Having them be Autobots is confusing to me I can't see the point of them in the plot if they are Autobots.

    Too help the autobots fight the decepticons. It's not like they contradict the plot at all.

    Anyways this is a def buy I hope we see a review of the other two soon.

    What I was thinking is that the Autobots are hated in DOTM (Hence the Anti-Autobot logos sprayed about the place) now someone pretending to be Autobots and deflaming (Their already pretty dodgy after the Shanghai debacle) character.

    Now the original Rumours targeted 4 particular car mode Transformers.
    But now I'm beginning to wonder if it's actually someone blue who's a secret bad guy rather than someone red.

    The "Wreckers" were supposed to fill that Bad Guys undercover role according to some reports.. so if they were that I'd by mystified by them being sold as Autobots - but then Jetfire's faction is a trifle muddled - as technically he's a "Heroic Decepticon" not an Autobot.

    Anyway I think the Nascars fit the plot better as undercover Bad guys and that is why I'm confussed a little by them being supposedly Autobots.

    But as has been mentioned perhaps they just superseed Mudflap & Skids' role.

    RE : ROADBUSTER

    Can you fold his car nose under his body in some way and reveal his robot chest as an alternative nose for the car as his robot chest is so similar to his power-up modes car hood form.
    If it was possible to do that along with the missiles and a couple of borrowed Mech-tech rifles it might look more like his attack mode.

    Not and have him still transform to car mode. You could conceivably hammer out the pin and just remove the front hood altogether, I suppose.

    Yeah, and it seems that he's got short "hair" under the hat with longer hair hanging out the back. I'm willing to concede that it's not nearly as mullet-ish as Topspin's.
