    This guy definitely looks like he comes from the Planet of Junk, it’s Reveal The Shield Wreck-Gar.

    The dirty brown and yellow colors work perfectly for the leader of the Junkions. I was very excited to get this update of Wreck-Gar. He was cool and quirky in the cartoon and that comes thru in this iteration of the character.

    The G1 “chopper” was a cool motorcycle alt mode. It’s very fitting, and more appropriate I think, that this modern figure is a dirt bike. It seems a more practical mode for a denizen of a Junk Planet than a heavy duty chopper. The G1 bot mode, however, never quite felt like it captured the the quirky spirit of Wreck-Gar.

    This works much better. The cobbled together look, the tire shield and battle axe, the “El Diablo” mustache and goatee. A very welcome and fun update to a post animated movie favorite. His coloring, headsculpt, and chest flames are really well done. His poseability is crazy due to the way his transformation works. This guy’s all over the place and it’s great.

    I like too how his shoulder wheel is articulated now. It’s a good storage solution as well as a cool way to try different looks for battle poses.

    I know he’s a fidgety figure, don’t deny it. And those soft rubber handlebars can be touchy, one of mine broke doing this photo session but I sorta salvaged it. Despite that, this Wreck-Gar was definitely a unique new take on an old classic.

    Thanks! I used the new iPhone XS, the camera on it is crazy! I also lit each shot with a diffused studio light.

    Those pics are just quick snapshots, check out my Instagram or Facebook for my nice photos! ;)

    One more shuffle for the road.
    It's been all day sorting tubs today, lounge is a bomb site.
    Did somebody dial the Spider-Friend hotline, or you just like seeing his trim figure in that outfit?

    I painted the insecticons to match together a little better. Still a work in progress.

    Just my thoughts on the matter, but the dirt bike has an added bonus if you've seen Mad Max Fury Road since 'cobbled together' tends to define the aesthetic and probably one of the best scenes in the entire movie involves Max and Furiosa shooting at a bunch of bikers jumping around the War Rig. The Junkions strike me as being very much like the bikers in that film, except they simply use each other as the bikes.

    Question: Are Generationss Crosscut and Botcon Lift Ticket, Burnout, and SG Tracks, the only official CHUG Diaclone deco figures released to date?

    I’m looking to build a Diaclone team for my Henkei Convoy and wondering if there were any I might have missed.

    I know there are some I can achieve with head swaps on the Sunstreaker/Sideswipe mold at least.

    Forgot about him. I have my mind set on a Powered Convoy/Delta Magnus from Seige Ultra Magnus though. Hopefully that will happen.
