    Okay, if you were trying to make a cast of Elite Guard or Wreckers all from third party Transformers, but only as characters who were members of those groups in some continuity, what could you make?

    Here is what I came up with:

    Eite Guard
    Blast Off - Explorer, Warbotron Air Blast
    Brawl - FansProject Crossfire, Warbotron
    Ironfist - Mech Ideas Gauntlet toy
    Metalhawk - Upcoming Play With This Too Ironstrike.
    Onslaught - Butcher or Fansproject Crossfire, Microblaze Onslaught, Warbotron, Microblaze Creations
    Swindle - Munitioner, Warbotron
    Tap-Out - Impossible Toys Tapper
    Ultra Magnus - City Commander (and all it's add-ons), or Earth Commander. KFC Citizen Stack. Upcoming Iron Factory.
    Vortex - FansProject Crossfire, Warbotron

    Also obviously the X-Transbots Boosticus add on, even though the Combaticons didn't form Bruticus until they left the Elite Guard.

    Wreckers
    Arcee - Valkyrie, ARC, RC or Delicate Warrior. MMC Azelea
    Broadside - Assaulter
    Bulkhead - Dreamworks weapons
    Impactor - Upcoming iGear Presser (canceled?), MMC and X2 Toys.
    Ironfist - see Elite Guard
    Kup - iGear head
    Perceptor - iGear Sniper kit, KFC Mugan Scope, upcoming Fanstoys
    Rack & Ruin - FansProject Recoiler and Riftshot
    Roadbuster - FansProject Revolver, Natobot Universe Roadbuster add-on.
    Rodimus - Protector, TFC Targetroid
    SG Rodimus (SG Wrecker) - Shadow Scythe, TFC Tragetroid
    Skywarp - Mastermind Creations Warper or TFC Warp Targetroid. iGear Skywarp and Impossible Toys Tetrajet
    Springer - FansProject Defender, Dr. Wu's Springer gun
    Tapout - See Elite Guard
    Topspin and Twin Twist - Mech Ideas toys.
    Ultra Magnus - see Elite Guard
    Wheeljack - Dr. Wu weapons, Dr. Wu Wheeljack head
    Whirl - Headrobots Gyro

    Obviously there is also the X-Transbot add-on for Ruination.

    Yes, according to last year's club comics The Combaticons started out as members of the Elite Guard... before being recruited by Deathsaurus.

    The Combaticons are introduced as Autobots then later join the Decepticons.

    What are the odds!?

    Dunno about Elite Guard, but my Wreckers are pretty set up

    Rodimus Prime - Protector
    Ultra Magnus - City Commander (1st release yo!)
    Springer - Defender
    Steelcore - Played by himself
    Arcee - PE Motorbot (Pink)
    Roadbuster - CM Corp Brave Ghokin
    Kup - Kup with iGear head

    And eventually I'll add Assaulter as Broadside.

    Presser from Igear (one day)
    Gemini and Apex from MechIdeas
    Warbot Defendor
    Warbot Assualter

    Until someone does Whirl, Roadbuster, Sandstorm or Rack N Ruin, that'll be it for my wreckers. I don't include Ultra Magnus, for the same reason that I don't put Optimus Prime with my Dinobots (just because you give the order, doesn't make you part of the team).

    As far as LSOTW cast goes, well, unless they are based on Roche's artwork I'm not gonna display them as wreckers, I'd just filter them into my classics collection.

    Despite being guilty of gee-wun slavish to the original Wreckers cast, I actually use Steelcore as my Wreckers leader pre-Impactor, but that's just personal canon fanwanking.

    There was the Universe Roadbuster upgrade, but wern't they just made at Shapeways or resin or something? More a large quanity garage kit than a full third party Transformer.

    i would KILL KILL KILL for a 3rd party Roadbuster

    ever since Last stand of the wreckers and All Hail Megatron, he is easily my fav wrecker.

    He's just a big brute, not many can go toe-to-toe w/ Roadbuster

    I'm not very familiar with the fiction, but the "Wreckers" concept is very appealing to me. I'm in the middle of forming my own Wreckers team, made up of:

    Henkei Ultra Magnus with FP City Commander Armor
    CM's Mugen Calibur
    Bandai 1/55 Valkrie VF-1A (just because)
    FP Warbot Defender
    FP Warbot Steelcore
    FP Warbot Assaulter

    Whaat? Man, you gotta reread the story that came with LSotW. He's not just a big ol' brute, Roadbuster. He learned how to read, even!

    Plus he's gonna be the best and most G1-esque of the bunch we're getting from Hasbro. Sure, not with all of his weapons, but Swindle is the best of the combiner molds. And the tallest

    In the old Botcon Universe Wreckers comics Skywarp, Cyclonus, Fractyl and Rotorbolt joined the Wreckers. Little spoiler, Cyclonus betrayed the Wreckers, but Skywarp kept with the Wreckers... until he joined Unicron later in the Universe story.
