    So they aren't supposed to point downward, just straight back? I would have preferred some extra articulation in them rather than the spring lever gimmick they gave us. It's still looking to be one of my new favorites, just on fun factor and character resemblance alone.

    Atomic LUGNUT
    Decepticon Thug

    Exposed to malfunctioning experimental power reactors at a remote Sumdac factory,
    LUGNUT absorbs more power than he can handle. Now atomic energy spills from the cracks in his armor, and shines from his eye. His power mace thunders with the might of an exploding sun, while nuclear fire crackles along the edges of the footprints he leaves behind. He's not just a danger to the AUTOBOTS- he's a threat to Earth itself !

    Galactic Powers & Abilities:
    > Fires atomic power blasts from his fists.
    > Whatever his mace hits explodes.
    > Radioactive aura shorts out human technology.

    The picture on the back of the box shown pointing downward.
    Instruction sheet shown it folds back.

    since the backpack is heavy, pointing downward helps Wreck-Gar standing/posing...

    Or rotate it forward is fine....

    Where exactly did you find them? I know its kind of late now, but it'd be good to know which location exactly so I can check it out.

    No, even pegwarmers sell. Just less. There will always be people who are into this stuff. frankely I'm a little tempted myself, since the gold and silver appeal, but I already have one 'Nut, I- oh, shit...


    ...If I got both, I could put them side-by-side, as left and right 'Nut. (short for Lugnut)

    :O

    Not for LUGNUT. The vision in my head of him stomping down the street with those powers is waaaay awesome.
    Thanks for the bio, clonemanager.

    I'd say Wreck-Gar is up there in my top three Animated TFs. Ultra Magnus, Shockwave and Wreck-Gar. The modification that Peaugh showed where you can put his lifting forks in his backpack makes him even more completely and totally awesome.
