    Man, $120 for minor remolds? And no Wreck Gar update?

    I like the chest wheel guy but not sure I need all these. I have A & B already.

    What's the best price around right now for these back up singers?

    I still say they miss sales by not doing a box set of four for those of us that have the two originals and save on packaging and shipping.

    These are great. I love the originals. Pre-ordered all 4. Looking at the character files, they did an excellent job considering they didn't make each a totally unique figure.

    No kidding. There is very little difference between the figures. They should have spread them out more. $600? No thanks and I'm all G1 all the way.

    Am I the only one who looks at the Junkions and goes "Cykill's Mad Max cousins". Probably a dumb joke but the Junkions look cool with their color scheme. Shame for official its just Wreck-gar....and not all the other Junkions....I don't know I'd like some variety here and there.

    Back in 2014 when KFC first announced the Junkion mold they indicated there are 11 designs (at least) for the mold, of which we will be at 6 with these releases. Cy-Kill was one of them. There was also an image shared in G1 Override colors.

    Keith's Fantasy Club Masterpiece Cy-Kill

    Wreck Gar was unnumbered, and they showed "Junk Warrior 10" indicating there was 1 - 9 before it.

    It's so cool these are getting made, but I think I'm just going with the wheel chest one. I mean one is just Wreck-Gar, two is Wreck-Gar and a buddy, but three starts to feel like a Junkion gang.

    Matter of fact, 4 or 5 is at least good enough for a skirmish or a ratpack. At this point, you might as well complete the 6. Since these were meant to be actual show appearing characters leave them as is, but get another 5 (just the 5, you can't have someone walking around with Wreck-Gar's face) to take advantage of the mix'n match playability and you can have 5 customized/random characters. That's 11 Junkions rolling deep. Speaking of rolling, aren't they a motorcycle gang? Since alt mode can be anybody, let's just go ahead get 11 more. Now that's a Junkion display! PURE AWESOMENESS!! Since I already got the first two around a hundred each, I actually save forty bucks. As for how much would it cost altogether? Let's see...20x$120+$200=$2600+shipping.....hmm.......

    It's so cool these are getting made, but I think I'm just going with the wheel chest one.

    Besides the original two that came out a couple years ago, were the four new characters in the series or movie?

    I totally missed Wreck-Gar's release. I must check if it is still available. It was one of my favourites as a kid. I lost the front wheel and replaced it with a Pizza Hut spinning top; true Junkion style. Worked perfectly haha.

    Just noticed the simpler hands. Unfortunate.

    I miss the fully articulated hands. Piss on all the wieners that broke fingers and whined about it.

    Obviously you have to factor your finances and space into this, but personally I feel an even number is necessary, whatever that number is. Just so you have bike and rider pairs. I guess you could throw some random other person like Springer on the other bike instead, but for me it is Junkion pairs.

    They were in the background of the movie, a couple reappeared in the Big Broadcast of 2006 episode. In the image below are From left to right: Scrapheap, Wasteoid Gamma, Re-Cycle, Rubbish, HAZMAT and Greasestain.

    Two interesting things about this picture;
    1. The Junkion all the way to the right appears to be wearing a covid 19 mask.
    2. If you look very closely, apparently Huffer is a member of the Junkions.

    All these KFC rereleases I\'m hoping we get a chance to see some new recolors for their Blaster. I would love to see a microchange release.
