    I'm going to put together a group of Wreckers in my collection and im looking for inspiration, so....

    Who are the wreckers of your collection? Could be a mix of classic wreckers characters or some bots you deem worthy of the Wreckers name.

    Who would you choose to lead them?

    Do you give them extra weapons from other figures to increase the artillery? (Just an idea)

    Lets see some pics people!

    I just have FP Springer, if we're going with the more conventional team.

    Thinking outside the box a bit how about Universe Countdown and Universe Overload? Some big heavy bots armed to the teeth!

    Yeah, that was EPIC! :D 

    My Wreckers lineup is currently,

    Warbot Defender ( Springer )
    RTS Perceptor with custom head & sniper rifle from Megatron 31
    Generations Kup with iGear head & IDW style pistols from process

    I'm also getting iGear's Impactor, one of those Mugen Calibur toys to be Roadbuster, United Drift and Fan Toys Blaster.

    If iGear go on and make original molds for Ironfist, Pyro , Rotorstorm & Guzzle I'll get them too.

    Kup, Blurr, Perceptor, Drift are their own team, Don't have Springer yet and they haven't made a decent Blaster or a Big Roadbuster yet,

    Also I don't have Leadfoot and Guzzle for my Bayverse Wreckers.

    I'l fit in the cybertron Defence Team and Wing Saber somewhere.

    The real question is: are your Wreckers your toughest 'bots, or are they your most expendable?

    So far, I have Classics Ultra Magnus (hoping to replace him with a more G1-ish version if one is ever made; City Commander is too expensive for me), Classics Rodimus, Generations Kup, Generations Drift, Universe Roadbuster (the repaint of CD Hot Shot), RTS Perceptor, and DOTM Skyhammer as Whirl. I'm hoping to have Springer and Arcee, if they ever get official toys. I may add Generations Blurr, but I'm not sure if he's better there or in my main Autobot collection.

    I've got an IDW-ish Wreckers team (hey, I can only use what's out and looks good). So that's Springer (Universe Voyager), Perceptor, Kup, Inferno (joined in Marvel, and it's a good fit anyway), and Drift. They are currently allied with Ultra Magnus (plus FP City Commander) and Fortress (TFCon Stronghold + Uni. Onslaught) against Bruticus (plus FP Crossfire set), Ratbat (Universe Deluxe), and Straxus. So I've got a very Marvel UK-ish display atop my entertainment center...

    My criteria for the Wreckers in my collection is that they have to have been one in fiction (or if you're nitpicky worked VERY closely with them like Inferno or Drift, who were never "declared" Wreckers on panel). Also: G1 Wreckers, not Beast Era Wreckers. So as far as expansion I might go with Universe Deluxe Roadbuster or Whirl (Tomahawk + Headrobots Drone if I can find both for affordable).

    I could see expanding the Wreckers further, but my ultimate, absolute litmus test for any Wrecker is that they can't have been on the Ark (i.e. Optimus Prime's inner circle). So no Season 1 Autobots. Also I wouldn't add combiners or Dinobots. They are a bunch of misfits dammit!

    In my shelf, the Wreckers (Impactor, Rack and Ruin, Whirl, Roadbuster, Topspin, Twin Twist) were responsible for a failed attack on Shockwave's HQ. With his whole team dead, Impactor decided that the mission needed to succeed, no matter what, and fired his harpoon into Shockwave's antimatter reactor, resulting in the vaporization of an entire population center. This whas the pivotal moment that the neutral Cybertronians voted to banish the Autobots from Cybertron and its two moons, paving the way for a rather easy Decepticon takeover. So on my shelf, the Wreckers are all remnants of the shockwaves from a massive matter/antimatter explosion.

























    If you couldn't tell, I ain't the biggest Wrecker fan.

    Just Warbot Defender. He's so badass, he doesn't require any other Autobots to take on the hordes of Decepticons in my collection.
