    Do they exist in the series as a group? And if they exist who's the leader? I think it's Wheeljack. Any thoughts?

    I hope there's more in-depth story about the Wreckers.

    I'd find it humorous if Bulkhead was the smartest out of all of them.

    They seem to exist as a group. Really doubt Wheeljack is the leader though. If he was, Bulkhead or himself probably would have made a bigger deal about it.

    It's unclear as to whether or not the Wreckers are still a group or not, but they were at one point, and both Bulkhead and Wheeljack were members. I think it's safe to assume that the group itself has probably separated (the war was over after all), but that the rest of the remaining ex-members are still probably out there. As for who lead them, that's also unclear. I could see Wheeljack leading it for at least a little while, but I couldn't see him as being the group's permanent leader. Maybe someone like Ironhide, Ultra Magnus, or Kup.

    Was Ironhide a member of the Wreckers in any continuity?

    I don't think so. He's just a Cyberverse dude. For now.

    If we go with Exodus as the backstory for Prime, then Ultra Magnus is Wrecker commander. I could see Kup taking the role, too.

    With Hasbro's apparent intention to have any Transformers series post Prime be set in continuity with the TFP verse, perhaps we could get a 5 episode Wreckers miniseries. Would be nice to see, flesh out the universe more.

    I view the Wreckers as some sort of a "Batch Name", like graduating from college... Still not sure whether who's the leader, though. We still need more Bots to find that out because I know for sure it isn't Wheeljack or Bulkhead.

    I think it was said somewhere that Prime was the first series to ever mention them. I could be wrong.

    Don't have a clue who the leader could be, but I doubt that it's Bulkhead or Wheeljack. It might be someone new or an old familiar name.

    They exist as a group in Prime. I'm assuming they're like a crack team of commandos that Autobot command sends in to do the jobs that no other Autobot will do, like the SAS. I think either Springer or Impactor are the leader of the Wreckers.

    In Exodus it's Ultra Magnus so i'd assume him, or Springer and/ or maybe Impactor.

    I hope it's Springer. I know he's not the OG, but he was always my favorite. If not Springer, then totally Impactor.

    I get the feeling you meant that as a joke, but I think it'd work pretty well. Considering both known Wreckers so far have some kind of engineering background (Bulkhead construction and Wheeljack inventing) a trio of rough and rowdy rocket scientists would fit in just fine. Especially if they combined Roadbuster and Topspins G1 and movie portrayals. Use the movie versions as a base and bring in Roadbuster being a tough, charismatic and natural leader on the battlefield while a whole different bot off it, and Topspin's brotherhood/ split spark with Twintwist.

    A few ideas for other Wreckers:
    Ironfist: Autobot weapons designer and unofficial historian, with an interest in the Wreckers. Joins during the series.
    Breakdown: Close friend to Bulkhead and "Field Medic" to the group. Defected to the Decepticons after 'The G9 Incident.'

    I'd love to hear more about "The Garris 9 Incident".

    All those prisoners wouldn't have escaped if the actual Garrus was there. >_> I think about this every time G9 comes up.

    ...I can't keep my fandoms straight. >_<
