    ALTERNATE MODE

    Some military vehicle (not sure if it's based on something real or not, probably?) with some snow camo deco and a few translucent red parts and some small grey canon on top (doesn't move). Silver hubcaps are a nice touch. Some nice detailing all over that you don't notice right away because it gets lost in the white.

    TRANSFORMATION

    Pretty interesting. Weapons are stored in the rear portion of the vehicle (panels attached to the thighs - they can stay there if you want). Basically, you unfold and extend the arms, lift what will become the backpack, unfold some panels, extend the legs, push down on the canon to activate the automorphing (chest rotates down to reveal the head and chest canon is deployed). Pretty cool.

    ROBOT MODE

    Very striking appearance with a lot of sharp edges and a very nice Megatron-meets-Rattrap headsculpt. You can attach the weapons (with deploying blades) under the forearms. Poseability is excellent (ankles, knees, hips,waist, wrists, elbows, shoulders, head). One of the better deluxe figures in that area. At first, I thought Wreckage didn't really fit the movie aesthetic but the feet sorta do with their unusual (movie-esque) shape.

    Overall, another good movie figure that deserve some attention despite not appearing in the movie.

    Very nice, he looks like a fun toy. How Megatron-ish is that head? The "bucket" is there as far as I can see, does he have the face to go with it?

    Very nice! Not digging the red at all (more the finish of the plastic than the color)...but that's nothing paint can't fix. I like this guy.

    It's actually a Rattrap-like face in a Megatron-like bucket. :)

    Not bad. A slightly lazy transformation, and I'm not sure about the red & white colour combination.
    I'll buy, but he'll probably be the last one I get.

    Hmm, I like the mold but not so sure about the colors. Maybe there will be a repaint of him eventually.

    He looks great except for the big backpack. Also, that white is a little too bland for me, but if you added some lines and if there was no flash on the camera it would probably look nice.

    I like the open hand look we're getting with a lot of movie toys (proto op, voyager op, wreckage). Blocks with holes in them for fists are so last millennium. I want to like Wreckage, but the bright Armada starscream hips and arms kind of ruin his deco for me. A gunmetal repaint of his limbs and chest gun, with a nice brown "dirt" wash to make his white self look a bit less bland might make him better.

    I really don't like transparent plastic for things that should be solid, like guns and physical blades. It reminds me of Energon toys.

    I wonder if since both Ratchet and Starscream are getting G1 inspired repaints, If Wreakage will get a "better" G1 inspired character repaint? if so who? hmmm
