    Which line are you thinking of when you say just wreck-gar?

    I think there's been an official wreck-gar since chug, but with chug I think I had 3 distinct official junkions (not sure) and I kind of think there were even more variations I didn't buy.

    They were of course all similar, maybe even more than these guys, but they were distinctive.

    I decided to pre order Dregs and Gunker.


    So this will be at least the 3rd go round for Dumpyard. But have they only issued Wreck-gar once now?!?! Is that right that Dumpyard is actually much easier to get than Wreck-gar? I hope not. I have Dumpyard, just because 2 Junkions was always going to be better than 1. But if all these options had been available when I picked up him and Wreck-gar, I would not have gotten him. He's not one of my more favorite ones out of the bunch.

    Looks like ShowZ has the same price as the American places, have we officially reached parity pricing on everything between Chinese and American retailers?

    Well that sucks. Had these pre-ordered with Showz for a while. I guess I will cancel and go with TCP instead due to the shipping speed.

    Honestly, that's sorta been my experience in the last month or two, with all the impact with CV19, shipping costs and delays, most domestic and international prices have become the same, which makes me rather nervous for what might happen to domestic prices as we go forward, if they start jumping just like the costs from Asia have recently.

    This is odd...

    As of yesterday, SZ didn't have full prices up. I went ahead and pre-ordered Gunker (as I had already done the same with Dregs back in Nov.).
    Today, Gunker showing up as $124.09, but Dregs is only $115.99! LOL
    Maybe a got an early-bird discount with Dregs!

    Ah, you’re right, I had 2 pre-ordered from last year and those are at $115, but it’s $120 to order them fresh.

    I think Dumpyard is the most dynamic of all. He has an actual face, intricate chest, shoulder pads and the fork extenders. Wreck Gar is awesome, but visually does not look as cool. I only ordered the new yellow chest guy. I like the tire chest on other one but The rest of him is super boring. The Yellow pops. With yellow chest guy, and first two I have a nice trio and all look different.

    The free shipping is a ‘hold item’ option rather than free option.
    It’s so you can order many things at different times, including in-stock items and get them all dispatched at once, paying the delivery fee when you want it shipped. I believe the cheapest shipping option at the moment is $28.

    If you want to save a little money, getting them from the Chinese store instead comes out at around £81.
    Not much of a difference, but saves £24 if getting all four

    You're welcome!

    Oops, I just realized I messed up the link for Re-Cycle. Here it is, and I've edited the post you quoted. Re-Cycle - Transformers Wiki

    Makes some sense. I heavily weathered Wreck-gar and Dumpyard, and I will do the same to the other 2 I just preordered. It will do a lot to break of some of the sameness you're talking about.

    Technically they don't appear weathered in the movie. But they're robots more or less made out of trash that live on a giant trash pile floating through space, so even though not exactly accurate it just made to much sense to me not to do it.

    How many 'non head' variables does this mold have? I have seen 3 chests, 4 legs, 3 arms, forks or not. I am not counting wheels, weapons, nor accent pieces.

    That soon? I'd better lock in my preorder on Taobao while the option is still available.
    I see TFSource has Crash Hod (Wreck Gar) up for preorder with a June ETA. However the hands on it look the same as the first release, fully articulated and not remolded into the mitten hand unlike the v2 Dumpyard preorder.
