    When i first saw POTP Wreck-gar i didnt even want to get it. Then someone mentioned a junkion combiner and i was like whoa. I wanted to do that. But i didnt get around to that yet. Then i decided to dare to be stupid. I wanted some junkions. I missed out on the generations version so here we are. My biggest issue was it was an orange groove. so, i went to work. in an effort to make him more junkion i modded the wheel into a shield. for those that missed those posts check them out if interested

    Minor/Repaint: - PotP Wreckgar shield!
    Minor/Repaint: - POTP Wreck-gar shield V2

    That satisfied me pretty good. Then it was off to make some junkions. So instead of making exact copies i wanted to take elements from the ones from the movie and so here we go...

    I wanted to give each a different weapon. Lets take a look one at a time.

    Trash Boat (anyone that watched regular show should get a laugh from this). Trash Boat is based off the orange dude. I gave him titans returns guns.

    Com-Pactor is based off the yellow guy.

    20181214_182849.jpg
    He likes to bonk dudes on the head.
    20181214_182454.jpg

    I took the handles of the axes and made them guns mounted on his handles.
    20181214_184201.jpg

    Dumpster Diver is based off one of the guys with the wheel on his chest. There were several of these so i wanted to make a guy with it. Obviously i only painted the combiner peg to look like it and used the leg wheel for the shield so the other wheel hides behind to add to the illusion that its in his chest.
    20181214_182658.jpg
    Hes got a combiner wars sword
    20181214_182419.jpg 20181214_183810.jpg

    Scrapmetal is based off the dude shown. hes just a standard dude. I didnt remove the mustache and was the first head i painted.
    20181214_182904.jpg
    More bonks with a tailpipe.
    20181214_182432.jpg 20181214_183639.jpg

    Trash Fist is based off that dude. Simulating the piping and giving him a visor.
    20181214_182819.jpg
    using the combiner fists and a peg i gave him big fists like rook. I dunno why but i really dig this guy.
    20181214_182750.jpg
    in robot mode the fists double as saddle bags.
    20181214_183146.jpg 20181214_183138.jpg

    Waste Bin is based off the brown junkion. I gave him a face plate with some putty.
    20181214_182833.jpg I used the top half of the axes and added a peg to mount to the vehicle mode. Popped out the pin and cut off the joint
    20181214_182452.jpg u can face the handle forward like a gun or backward for exhaust.
    20181214_183444.jpg

    More group shots

    20181214_184301.jpg added some red to wreck-gar to make him more accurate. Probably will add brown to the crotch area like the others.
    20181214_182630.jpg

    I have one more wreck-gar i could mod. Thought about making the female nancy out of it to give wreck-gar his queen.

    I enjoyed doing this. I dont know what it is about junkions that just seem fun.

    Anyway i hope you enjoyed these guys and hope u get inspired to try making your own custom junkion army. If you do I'd like to see them.

    Now i just need to figure out a torso or 2 so i can make them combine.

    Very nice! I'm still waiting on a couple more to arrive. I've got a computron torso for the junkion ship, the minnow, and an inferno that I plan to mod into a dump truck, in standby.

    nice job. I did a video a few days back to show multiple torsos and how they would look combined... I have to say that I like the Scattorshot mold the best.

    I call him MINNOWSAUR!

    I would say that the Motormaster mold would be a good candidate for a Junkion torso.
    Love the work you put into these guys, by the way!

    Very cool...as of right now, my Junkion combiner is awaiting some Reprolabels and the money for a couple of Shapeways bits:
    - Wreck-Gar, natch;
    - Detritus, a modded CW Swindle I'd originally made for a failed COBRA combiner;
    - Fuego, an OC made from a redecoed PotP Novastar armed with a couple of flamethrowers (taken from the "Action Master Prime" ToyHax kit);
    - Specs, another OC made from Wreck-Gar (and currently waiting on TrentTroop's Rung head and some Reprolabels);
    - and Toxitron, from the OTFCC Wreckers team (in fact, I might keep "Wreckage" as the combined name for this team, too)...I was also thinking of maybe getting TrentTroop's Boulder headswap and having HIM be "Wreckage" and "Toxitron" be the combined form.

    I was also thinking of using CW Afterbreaker as a possible Junkion since I have the UW Computron, too, and I kinda prefer the Takara Afterburner.

    I LOVE that "Combiner fists as saddlebags" idea, though, would you mind if I used it, too?

    Well, here's mine, sans touch up paint and 3D printed parts, but you'll get the idea.

    IMG_20181214_215532.jpg IMG_20181214_222133.jpg

    I plan to print new feet, as those belong to Defensor. I plan to design and 3D print a replacement Combiner head, maybe a silverbolt head replacement. Color the blue parts on silverbolt Orange.

    If I can manage to scrounge up some more Wreckgars at a decent Price, then I'll probably go ahead and use several torsos. I like the Motormaster IF the legs are modified, and loving the Scattorshot. If I can get another Elita at a reasonable price, I may go for that. Then again, there's also Inferno. He is the most Solid. Damn that's alot of wreck-gars.

    You are so right. I would hope for an official Hasbro 2-pack of some other Junkions.. get the most out of that mold!

    I actually really like using that screw hole as a cyclops eye! Maybe paint those four sculpted details around it as extra eyes, so it's got a spider-y face.

    Neat!

    I'd say a repainted/retooled CW Optimus as TFA Wreck Gar would be awesome as a means of finishing a CW Junkion set.

    Since this seems to be slowly becoming an all-purpose Junkion combiner thread (LOL)...I gave CW Afterbreaker a Wreck-Gar head and TFP Dark Energon Wheeljack's swords, and now I don't know what to call him or if to go "Kurosawa samurai" or "Inigo Montoya" with him. Suggestions?

    These look great! Worked out better than I thought they might.

    By any chance, does this mean you now have a surplus of Wreck-Gar trading cards?

    Nice job. You know, if there was ANY group of TFs that deserved Hasbro's "War for Cybertron mud" look?", It would be these Junkions (or at least their Wreck-Gar release).
