    He'd have to way, way bigger than Voyager. If Roadbuster is Ultra/Leader, and Guzzle looks like he could eat him in SOTW..

    .. ahem, yes. Anyway, Spartan. I'm trying really hard to skip this guy and hold out for Commotus, but it's getting really difficult. If the cash were to fall into my lap before he sells out, I think I have to pull the trigger.

    I would advise people to remain patient with regards to picking up any other potential IDW whirls.

    Just saying, if you like MMC's stuff. Your patience will pay off.

    IDW Whirl would be great. The generations toy is a great representation of G1 Whirl but IDW Whirl is a vtol jet not a helicopter.

    Mine did that until I pressed them into place really hard. Now they stay.

    I did too. And now when they fly off... they fly off far and hide. It is so annoying. Has anyone glued their's on?

    I have. I think there is some mold flashing I need to trim to get a perfect fit.

    Let me tell you. I have no clue who this character is. Never read the Wreckers comics. Don't really care too much about it either (I am now slightly more curious).

    I love this figure. He has so much CHARACTER. And posing the bot mode is just the BEST.

    So if you are like me and are not a big fan of the comics. You still might want to give this guy a try as he is a solid bot, and I love the Tank mode.

    Elbow pads take some futzing. I got the right clicked on perfectly, but the left kept giving me troubles. Thought I would get it clicked, but then it would fly off the moment I moved that elbow joint. But then eventually, it just magically held, and I haven't had a problem with it since.

    If for some reason you can't get it right, then there's no harm in gluing them. But it shouldn't be necessary. Just keep trying, and eventually you'll find that magic sweet spot where the elbow joint doesn't decide to randomly pry it off.

    Every pic I see of him next to Springer brings me that much closer to pulling the trigger on him. They just seem to go together like PB&J. Thought I'd just do Turmoil for this mold, but............hmmm...

    Yes. The onus is on me for you seeing cocks in a toy pic. Do you make dick jokes everytime you see a baseball game? "That dude is drag at parties. He doesn't see dicks everywhere. HAHA SO LAME RIGHT GUYS!?"

    Good lord dude, because THATS why I said it. Not because you got bent out of shape over a stupid joke. Here: I'm real sorry I poked fun at your picture in a juvenile way on a toy forum. Can we get back to talking about Impactor now?

    In his defence, 33 here and I love dick jokes. And I'm not even a native English speaker.

    Impactor is such a great toy. He is a fantastic depiction of that centurion form. He's able to pull off all those crazy poses too. Yeah the elbow shovels pop off once in a while. But off holds a more accurate look.

    I showed the tank mode to some of my (transformer)friends and they just didn't get it. I had to explain the Metal Slug reference... and still they didn't really get it. I like it a lot.
