    Received this guy in the mail. Transformation is pretty satisfying to be so simple. It's also kind of like Clobber in that it's a godsend to receive a Cyberverse design with basic articulation. I almost wish the gimmick were gone in a lot of these so we could have some basic but decently affordable takes on these designs.

    Overall it's just nice to have this member of the wreckers for my shelf (finally). Who would've thought Rack'n'Ruin would have been in a children's cartoon let alone get a decent toy (for the line and gimmick)

    Yay, finally a thread for this figure!

    I still say this figure is begging for a Wrecker reprolabel.

    Gonna try to paint his armor a solid color in the near future, give it a more G1 comic look.

    I saw this guy at Target. If he wasn't so hollow I might have considered getting this.

    I'm glad they got a figure with decent articulation but the thing that really kills it for me is the vehicle mode. That big hinge for the armor gimmick kind breaks the look of the vehicle mode and I think if the gimmick wasn't there that whole section could of been compressed into a more solid looking vehicle.

    No gimmick would also mean that their heads could turn rather than being fixed in place. I'd also much rather have a way for the canons to face forward on their arms in robot mode rather than the Energon Armor.

    Surprising amount of articulation on this guy but still ruined because of a gimmick. Kinda surprised by how much I like this guy... or these guys... considering how little they actually do in the show but it's such a unique design being the only character with two heads. If he also had three arms he could be the Transformers equivelent of Zaphod Beeblebrox.

    Also for anyone confused if Rack n' Ruin should be addressed by singular or plural pronouns I direct you to this video.

    The review:

    "How is it?"

    "It's a toy of Rack'n'Ruin, possibly the only one we'll see in a long time"

    "- and?"

    "... ... It doesn't painfully suck."

    I will be filling a lot of the gappage on this guy(s). I too will be painting his energon armor, along with a few other details here and there.

    My only style gripe is I wish his faces had different expressions.

    I havent gotten too many of these cyberverse figures, but the ones I have have been impressive. Rack N Ruin is def one of the better ones and I'm glad to have this Wrecker. Good figure gimmick and all.

    He does what he needs to do, which is "be Rack N Ruin" and "have at least basic hip/shoulder/elbow/knee articulation".

    I'll likely end up using styrene or something to fill in the gaps in his arms and legs and maybe do something to fill the huge gap in his altmode's "trunk" area.

    It's neat that he looks like he might be the same general type of vehicle as G1 Roadbuster, just armored differently.
