    So I'm a little late to the party here. Just received Crash Hog off ebay today and I'm really liking him. The face sculpt is really on point. I don't even mind that he doesn't have the amount of paint that more recent MP figures have, he still fits in I think. Now I'm weighing up whether to get Dumpyard, but the only version I'm seeing on ebay is the metallic one, and I wouldn't want him outshining his Junkion leader!

    One small area I am giving thought to painting is his faux bike windscreen on his head, has anyone ever tried this? I'm thinking to paint it a light white/blue to match the toon, but on the inside, so it might give a cool effect like MP9s crotch.

    The original wreck gar looks pretty good with metallic dumpyard, imo. Sucks that you can't get matched finishes, but somebody had to go copy FT with the metallic finishes...

    I'd think a black paint wash could subdue the metallics some.

    Dumpyard does looks good in that metallic finish. Yeah I imagine it was down to seeing the popularity Fanstoys were getting with their paint. Ironically that doesn't necessarily fit with the current direction of the official MP line which uses more gloss paint. I think I'm going to hold out on Dumpyard and see if I can find an original colour version. Or who knows maybe eventually they'll decide to go ahead and release the rest of the junkions and re-release these two.

    Meanwhile I went ahead with painting the bike visor on his head and I really like how it came out even though it's such a small thing. I painted the inside of it and the effect looks quite cool while making it a teeny bit more screen accurate.

    I heard the paint can be chippy on the metallic dump yard, have you transformed him? Is it flakey? I’d like to get him for motorcycle mode with Crash Hog

    I've always felt that the hands on these two are a tad too big.

    Crash Hog's hands never bothered me.... he's one of my favorite KFC figures. I wish his gas tank had been painted though... If I recall, his tank was painted in earlier prototypes, but the retail figure wasn't as nice.

    That looks really f'ing good. I was thinking about using a little tamiya transparent blue, but that white... mmmmmmm.
    Yep, dumpyard comes in bike mode, so I had to transform him. I didn't have any issues with flaking or scraping. He's well toleranced-- the bits that move over one another are plastic. Posing him and stuff hasn't caused and chips or flakes either.

    I didn't kid-glove this, but I was being kfc-areful lol

    Thanks! :D  I mixed a tiny smidge of blue with white so it's not pure white. I was going to just paint over the outside but was inspired by how the crotch plate on MP9 is painted on the inside of clear plastic, so did that instead.

    My Crash Hog arrived yesterday. Decent figure but as others have mentioned it's too bad it's all plain plastic. Looks really bland- but honestly the movie bots all seem "pastel-ish" and bland to me, lol.

    Definitely painting the windshield like you did though. Mine had a chest gun broken out of the box but it's an easy fix:

    On that note TFS-Express/ Omegalock have this and Dumpyard back in stock. Frustratingly it's the metallic Dumpyard. It seems strange Wreck-gar never got a metallic release. I hope the 4 new guys aren't metallic otherwise Wreck-gar is getting completely upstaged by the other junkions. Not to mention his gloss finish matches the current MP trend better imo.

    That sucks about the nipple gun. Any luck fixing it or getting it replaced? Did you paint the visor also?

    Gun was easy to glue and can hardly tell. Haven't painted yet but definitely will.

    Anyone had issues getting the orange bits next to the panniers to tab in? Mine seem to have something in the slot where they should tab in so they won't attach.

    I just bought the Metallic version of Dumpyard. Looking forward to having CrashHog riding him.
