    Please, name all leaders of the Wreckers in IDW comics. If I'm not mistaken, they are: Impactor, Springer, Hot Rod, Primal Prime and Ultra Magnus?

    Upd.: which of the Wreckers leaders have toys in IDW comics design?

    Keeping it strictly to the original IDW continuity, the only leaders of the Wreckers were Impactor and later, Springer.

    Hot Rod was never affiliated with them and Primal Prime didn't exist, except maybe as a background cameo during the Unicron event.

    The original IDW universe's list of known Wrecker leaders is, in order:

    - Threnody
    - Crest
    - Hyperion
    - Impactor
    - Springer

    Only Impactor and Springer ever appeared in stories in a significant capacity, the earlier three were basically just brief mentions.

    Rodimus, Primal Prime and Ultra Magnus have all been Wrecker leaders in other universes, but in IDW they're not even part of the Wreckers, let alone leading the team.

    Right! Sorry! Forgot you mentioned Magnus.

    Magnus acted as transport for the Wreckers for the mission to take back Garrus-9, but that was about the extent of his affiliation with them. He wasn't a member of the Wreckers.

    So then may I reconfigure my question? Which of the Wreckers leaders have toys in IDW comics design?

    Wrecker leader characters with toys that match designs used in IDW comics kinda narrows it down to Thrilling 30 Springer, and Combiner Wars Ultra Magnus.

    Springer toy was based on his appearance in Last Stand of the Wreckers, and CW Magnus was designed after Magnus as he appeared in More Then Meets The Eye and Lost Light ongoing series.

    Siege Impactor is kiiiiiinda close, in that Impactor has a signature look. But the Siege toy has an entirely different alt mode design than the tank he turned into in Last Stand of the Wreckers.

    Regeneration One is set in the '80's Marvel continuity, not IDW's own continuity, but we do have a toy of one of Kup's IDW designs. His Titans Return figure is based on the Kup design that debuted in All Hail Megatron (although it's coloured like the original '80s Kup toy). Takara's version recoloured it into more standard Kup colours, but they also remolded his head and arms to look less like IDW and more like the G1 cartoon.

    Didn’t it seem like Kup was in charge during AHM? Springer was in the team then so I’m not sure. I think he may have been in charge when Springer was in a coma after LSoTW too.

    Kup did lead that team in AHM, but it wasn't the Wreckers, it was just a normal team containing a mix of Wreckers and non-Wreckers.

    And Kup spent all the time between LSOTW and SOTW either with Optimus's main Autobot force or trapped in the Dead Universe - he wasn't involved with what remained of the Wreckers during that period.

    I mean personally I feel like there's no reason that shouldn't be considered a Wreckers lineup but that's just me.

    That’s right I forgot Optimus pulled him out of the Dead Universe in the Dark Cybertron run.

    That group of autobots with Kup in charge sure felt like the wreckers though.

    I'm looking for Wreckers leaders not just in IDW continuity, but every continuities. From that point, Kup was Wreckers' leader in Regeneration One. Though I need him. But I need toys just in IDW comic design.
    Assuming, we have Impactor and Springer in IDW comics, Kup in Regeneration One, Ultra Magnus in Dreamwave Generation One continuity, Rodimus in Shattered Glass and Primal Prime in Wings Universe.
    I want to collect them all, but I need only IDW designed figures. There's no such for Primal Prime, but Perfect Effect will match. Impactor MMC, Springer Thrilling 30, Hot Rod SXS Toys, Ultra Magnus Combiner Wars and we don't have perfect IDW Kup, but seems that Takara Legends LG-46 is good enough.

    Toyworld Krank is a much better IDW Kup. QC is a bit hit and miss (I was lucky with mine), as it was released at the time the Zeta team split from them, and the face needs painting, but it works well.

    Generations Kup wasn't designed anything like IDW Kup. They only both look like Kup, otherwise no relations. Titans Return Kup looks nothing like IDW Kup either except for the head. ToyWorld Krank is the closest to an IDW Kup there is. the head and body are directly inspired by IDW Kup. Since he's practically impossible to find, I'd recommend Titans Return Kup, but you already have Generations Kup who doesn't scale with the other figures and has the single worst headsculpt I have ever seen. Also why ask about IDW Wreckers and then when people tell you a character isn't in IDW, you go "I'm collecting wreckers from all continuities." Just go in tfwiki, look at the list of wreckers, they literally list every universe's team members, and ask for the best toys of the ones you want to collect. It's easier for you to make sense of things and for us to help. Also Prowl was never a wrecker, they just had to rescue him. He's not affiliated or a member.
