Reveal The Shield Wreck Gar Instructions Reveal Alternate Junkion Head

Posted on 01-18-2011 at 04:16 AM by TM2 D-bot under Transformers Generations Classics 3.0

Not looking forward to spending that much for Junkion troop building? It seems Hasbro has us covered. The only way to get a remolded head on Reveal the Shield Wreck-Gar was previously through the E-Hobby exclusive United Scrapheap. However, now Hasbro's instruction sheet for Wreck-Gar again reveal an alternate head robot in their images. Not sporting a closed of faceplate like that found on Scrapheap, he does have a visored head.

wow... so we can expect an hasbro version of the warrior too ? Nice !

I assumed this would be the case. I'm just hoping it'll be in a different color scheme so I'll have a second Junkion for Wreck-Gar to lead.

Seconded!

Hands up all those who are genuinely surprised by this.

Good news all the same though, cheers Andy.

whew glad i didn't pre-order the e-hobby set, i almost did though
Blitz.
cool I didn't think they would leave it as an exclusive I hope its in different colours from both the Ehobby toy and Wreckgar just to add verity
BraveMax
Yeah... I knew I was ordering the eHobby set for the Blue Rodimus. I've accepted how expensive it was for me to get him.

As for this... How many more waves of Generations are there? We have this, the obvious G2 Prime repaint (Scourge), Scourge's repaint, Frenzy...

Seems like at least two more waves beyond the current one, and that would take us to mid-summer or early fall...
Red leader
I hope they go through with it, it'll be awesome to have a load of Junkions to go along with ol Wreck Gar

yeah me as well I'm a sucker for clear repaints. Kup and Scrap Heap are IMO just good filler to justify the price with kup being an interesting screen accurate repaint and Scrap Head being something nifty like Dion.

Thats why I hope Scrap heap in the Hasbro line up has a different name and colours. That way he is still a special odd ball but also then the Hasbro toy can be something special.... cykill or maybe even armada Sideways?

by the current rate of release, that will take us to two weeks from now

That's a shame, I don't think I'll get the Autobot ehobby set, which is the only one I liked.
Jlogano20
woohoo now just need a pic now someone get intructions of g2 prime and perceptor
Erector
Bah weep grah nah weep ninny bon?
Shockscream
Tres excellent. Someone for Wreck-Gar to ride!
Auto Morph
This news may be the final nail in the coffin of any possibility there may have been of me ordering the e-hobby Autobot set.

Besides, it's not really a surprise, as others have said. I mean, how many other characters can you really repaint Wreck Gar into?

Considering how many Generations/RTS toys have apparent pre-planned remolds or obvious potential repaints, I wouldn't be at all surprised if a few get pushed back to the "Whatever Hasbro ends up calling Classics 4" line.

Cy-kill and oil slikc would have been great repaints but anyway

knew it lol may have to pick up two wreckgars and two junkions for part swapping
Cal
Good news! He'll definitely go well with my Wreck-Gar. I wonder if Hasbro will get around to releasing these new-headed figures like Black Shadow and that Kup remold before DOTM....
OptionZero
i'm still getting the e-hobby pack. That Kup will save me from getting United/Generations Kup, plus the blue roddy will be a nice display piece, and Scrapheap will be another mindless junkion troop builder.
Dinobot Nuva
Any chance we'll be seeing Perceptors instructions any time soon as well? I'm itching for Reflector-related news.
Trailbreaker77
Awesome news maybe the rush for the e-hobby set will not be as bad now.

Great news, Need some pics

Still no pics?

Wreck-Gar is coming out pretty late in the line as it is (meaning finding him could be a problem). Assuming Hasbro actually does issue a repaint, will it EVER hit anything close to market saturation???
yami4ct
For some reason, I feel that this guy will make this line, but some of the other ones look like they might just miss it. The lugnut remold,scourge remold, and Black Shadow remolds scream to me "next line". It might just be because we've seen the E-Hobby repaints, but I just have a gut feeling this will make it out this year.

As far as we know Generations will not be stopping anytime soon. Per Hasbro it will be running concurrent with the next movie line.

Why? It's the same head as E-hobby Scrap Heap. Just imagine it as a black outline.
payres
Come on we do have to sleep over here in the UK at some point!

I'm wondering if they'll keep Generations going through the third movie being out and it's accompanying toys...... I'm already seeing more product on the runway than I think they can comfortably get out before the new Movie hits.

Because without pictoral proof, this can't be newsified/fp'ed, right?
Automorpher
I reckoned this has to come sooner or later.

Oh well.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that this does not look like the EHobby Scrap Heap head... maybe they're planning 3 different versions, and if so maybe they'll have other retooled parts instead of just the head

Hey Brave,in your post you put Scourge besides G2 Prime,not sure if you are talking about G1 Scourge or G2 Laser Prime repaint,but they can't use that name Scourge on both,so if it is the G2 Prime repaint then it will have a name change to something like Nemesis Prime or even Motor Master which would rock I think.Just wanted to let you know.Later

Awesome news, bud
Auto Morph
Woah, ok so this is not the same head sculpt as the United version. This changes my views towards picking up the Autobot 3 pack.

E-hobby are back in the game!
Blitz.
yeah its not the same unless they went back in and photoshopped a few new parts on it

Will get all of the Junkions, including the ehobby Scrapheap!
Tracer
Very cool. Like this head more than e-hobby's anyway.
PoweredConvoy
Yeah definitely Junkyard's head.

Randy
Opticron Primal
Well looks like I'll be buying a few of those.

Scrap Head AND Junkyard?

That's....that's.....damn that's awesome.
