    The Red Target car is Leadfoot.
    The Green AMP car is Roadbuster.
    The Blue Lowe's car is Top Spin.

    I am really liking it (though I am biased, as Roadbuster is one of my favorite TFs PERIOD). What does thou think?

    Top Spin is an odd choice considering he was conpletely different in G1, but at least he's still blue! I would've preferred a name of another Wrecker, but I quite like the name Top Spin so I'm OK! :)

    I honestly thought he was going to be Mirage, especially considering he's blue AND has that Egypto-like headdress. I also like that he has the "jaws of life" as his left hand.

    I love the names, I can't wait to see them in action and see their movie transformations!
    Roadbuster by far is the best name of them all, fits perfectly.
    I did a little research, and it seems to be that they had a liking to the Wreckers Comics from Marvel, as Whirl and Sandstorm are supposedly from the Wreckers comics, and they will be getting figures as well.
    So excited for this movie!

    color me impressed. I am glad none of the wreckers were named Ultra Magnus as that to me would not be appropriate for him to be such a small alt mode when compared to what he had been in the past.

    The names work well, especially Top Spin and Roadbuster. However, I wish they'd gone with another name for the red Target car. There's never been a Wrecker called Leadfoot. But, that's just a minor quibble.

    Leadfoot and Roadbuster are okay, but I'm still iffy on the name Top Spin. Like Karhukjnsi, I though the blue one would be named Mirage.

    Roadbuster and Top Spin have been explicitly name-dropped at Toy Fair, all three had package shots on TFCC.com exclusive pictures.

    Leadfoot looks weak compared to the other two, even his car isnt as decked out in weapons...
    I feel like he'll be the one to die of the 3

    Roadbuster = AWESOMENESS.

    The other two..well...sometimes it's better to be obscure character [because the transformers fandom won't care much about them] than well-known ones in the background: If they have small roles, fans won't give a crap about it because they are random character [while famous ones will make the pissed because they didn't have enough screen time, not enough dialogue, were killed too quick or whataver the hell else], if they have larger roles, it will surprise the fans giving a fresh look to obscure guys, only making it better.

    So, it's better to have these obscure guys as the wreckers than well-known.

    But, Roadbuster is made of awesome, just repeating it.
