    DX9 told me that a Junkion version of the Salmoore mold was coming, but TFcon is the first we have seen on it. Now I think the spikes on the wheels make sense. In fact the whole Salmoore body style is like an enhanced version of Generations Wreck-Gar.

    Did Unique Toys change its name?

    Also, unless the do some work that I'm not seeing, Salmoore's bike mode really won't work as a Junkion without some work. For one, it look too clean.

    This looks pretty good and better as a junkion the Cykill. That being said I'm fine with my Generations version.

    Yeah, the Generations version looks better than this. Roughly the same size too. It was an obvious and apt repaint but doesn't surpass HasTak's so I'll pass.

    DX9 is the name of the designer's group. Unique Toys provide his manufacturing. You may notice that Salmoore does not say Unique Toys anywhere on the box.

    I like this a lot, it reminds me of the G1 toy with the boxy torso. But it looks like there's one very important thing missing.

    Where's his axe?

    Not bad, but is it really worth $90 when the Generations one works just fine?

    Same for me. Will have to do some research on Salmoore now.
