    Being that the Wreckers are
    never in their 'clean' vehicle modes,
    why bother making toys of them in this state? Especially as it messes up consistency as they never make all 3 in the same state in any size class.

    If it's to sell more toys then fine I can understand that, but I'd really like to at least see some announcements for weaponized deluxe Roadbuster and well...Deluxe Leadfoot at all. (But hopefully, also weaponized.)

    Deluxe Leadfoot is a Target Exclusive 2-pack figure with Twin Twist.

    We don't have Target over here so hopefully Sainsburys will get it. Do you know if he's weaponized? I'm guessing not as Target wouldn't want to cover up their logo.

    Considering Twin Twist is supposed to be a repaint of Topspin there's a decent chance he will be.

    The target-exclusive legion still proudly bears the target logo.

    No reason the Deluxe Leadfoot can't.

    I get the feeling there will be a 2nd release of all the wreckers in the alternate form. So non-weapon Roadbuster gets released 1st. 6-9 months from now will be the weapon version.

    I'm looking forward to the Legion Roadbuster, which was in this month's Previews. Already got the other two in Legion, plus deluxe Roadbuster and Topspin.

    Legion Topspin is a terrible figure. I have minicons with a better transformation.

    I prefer (vastly) the weapon modes, but I see why people dig Nascars. In point of fact it's unclear to me why so many characters had Stealth Force and normal modes but the Wreckers didn't.

    If Deluxe Leadfoot is teched out, I believe I'll jump on him. Deluxe Roadbuster would then be decent enough, because at least he has the rocket launchers.

    I just wish they would've been consistent with each other in their size classes.
