    I was recalling a thread that ask the question "who are the Wreckers of your collection" and starting thinking about the Wreckers rivals. In some fiction that role is filled by "Squadron X" and in other by the "Mayhem Attack Squad". Which led me to want to know if you have an anti-Wreckers unit who does it consist of? Is the group named after one of the two known rival groups? Being that out of both groups I believe only Bludgeon has toy representation currently did you re-purpose or customize figures for the team? So yeah let me know because I'd like to create my own anti-Wreckers unit and am looking for some inspiration if you will. If you have pics of your anti-Wreckers please share.

    This is an AWESOME thread. I definitely have a "wreckers" team put together, but I never thought about a Villain Opponent team for them.

    Hmm.. this is a really good question.

    Based solely on what I have in my collection:

    Bludgeon (ROTF)
    Fracture (TFTM)
    Icepick (PCC)
    Black Shadow (Generations)
    Sledge (PCC)
    Space Case (DOTM)
    Wreckage (TFTM)

    Onslaught (Universe 2.0) is an associate, but not strictly a member, in a similar role to Ultra Magnus in various continuities. Lockdown (ROTF) and Cannonball (Cybertron) also assist, but that's the nature of mercenaries.

    I'll post a photo later today.

    Just random opposing movieverse Con force to movieverse Wreckers but to think about it, Mayhem Attack Squad fits better to my cast imho. Further thinking, dlx Ravage might also be a stand in/representetive for Catilla. He's way too big to be Movie Ravage anyway.

    ^^ Looking foward to that pic Boy Blunder.

    I've actually had this on my mind for awhile and never could decide on a rival group.

    @Dinodigger97 & Boy Blunder Who leads your group?

    I have Classics Rodimus leading his troops as the Wreckers for my season 3 shelf. To counter his team, I got Galvatron (typical, I know), and his Decepticons as the Anti-Wreckers for now. I would expand Wreckers and Anti-Wreckers teams more faithful to the comics, but I currently lack the space...

    Would these represent a classics, aec, movie or cross dimensional anti-Wreckers unit? Sounds good either way. :thumb

    This is a tricky one, as historically from the fiction, both the Mayhem group and the Squadron (or if you will, Mayhem Attack Squadron X!) have suffered from shit toys or no toys.


    If I had to make my own, based on toysand as a counterpoint to the wreckers, it would be:

    Straxus (supreme commander, stays at base and gives orders)

    Blitzwing (field commander)
    Astrotrain
    Octane
    Shrapnel (second in command)
    Kickback
    Bombshell
    Venom
    Chopshop
    Barrage
    Ransack
    Flywheels
    Battletrap

    Second unit (once all the others are dead)
    Bludgeon (ROTF version)
    Stranglehold (new design needed)
    Octopunch (Botcon version,with tentacles and new head)
    Ruckus
    Needlenose
    Crankcase
    Windsweeper
    Quake

    Bludgeon earned the leadership role by pretty much beating the rest of the crew into line, with Fracture acting as his CO. He keeps her close at hand because she's the most unpredictable.

    In some situations, however, Bludgeon will defer to Onslaught's experience if he's present.

    Also, I'd say that these guys are closer to being the Mayhem Attack Squad than Squadron X. Squadron X is all a bunch of loonies. :lol 

    Oh, and when he gets finished, my custom Bugbite will also be a part of the team.
