    The most hardcore, gangsta, "Kill'em all and let Primus sort them out" Autobot of ALL TIME, Impactor. He redefines the words obsessed and dedicated. So many Decepticons have been killed with his hands he has earned the nick name of "Kiloton". Yes, Wreck N' Rule, indeed!!! Without a doubt, my favorite Wrecker of the squad. Make sure you check out the Last Stand of the Wreckers series to learn more about the guy Springer looked up to.

    Impactor was built from a slightly modified Transformers Crossovers Captain America figure. I think that is he has an earth mode, it would look a lot like this. The hands were replaced with one Alt Tracks hand and a scratch built Harpoon hand. The head was swapped with a heavily modified head from the Energon Superion/Storm Jet super mode head.

    I added styrene tubing to the chest to resemble Impactor. The shoulder cannon was made from various Gundam Parts from Gundam Seed Destiny's Freedom, Gundam Seed Blue Astray and other parts from an Armored Core kit. The 50 cal. and ammo chain were added, as well ass a holster for those weapons in alt mode.

    And, yes, there are a few extras coming. If you have read the comic, you already know which ones. Wreck N' Rule, baby! :thumb

    Nice one! You left the chainmail though. I can totally understand why as it is a pig to fill in (so I understand), but it does work on this chappy!

    Relay sweet looking, but I just can't get passed the scales/chain mail on the mold. I wish they would release him without it.

    Nice work man, the head is spot on and I love the harpoon hand.

    Don't forget though that Impactor can be found in the old UK Marvel stuff as well. Though Last Stand of The Wreckers rocks much socks!

    Not so hard really, I think a lil putty would have filled it n okay. I kinda like it for him, though.

    Thanks, Z! You know, what really bothered me were the starts on the rims and the chest. The chainmail really didn't bother me

    Ladies and gentlemen, what we got here is an autobotx23 original that kicks so much ass. Just look at that head, the weapons, and the paint job. And that it screams Impactor. So Wreck N' Rule.
