    I know it was a joke. I was being a fool intentionally. All hail decadence!

    My feeling is that, since all the other releases listed are set as Spring 2011, then these guys could be TF3 'preview' figures also set to release next spring.

    Thinking about it, was that strange Einstein character board in the TF3 movie pictures ever revealed? Could that be Wreck-Gar? He does have a funny beard after all...

    I know that Turbo is appended to Tracks for legal reasons, but is it me or does this mold lend itself to a repaint into GoBot Turbo?

    Generations Wreck-Gar? Excellent news. This, however, will not stop me from also buying FansProject's Collector... especially since FansProject are going to be doing three different versions of Collector; 'Wreck-Gar', a male Junkion and a female Junkion.

    Also, interesting to see regular Optimus Prime and Bumblebee listings. I wonder if these are the same molds (along with a Megatron mold) that are being released in Takara's Transformers United line. I'd love updated Deluxe Classics styled molds for all three of these characters. I could also see these three designs being based on their upcoming appearances in TF:p rime as well. Kind of like how WFC ended up in Generations too. Either way... I'm all for new deluxe molds for these three.

    You check in, but you don't check out. Sh-wing!

    G1 Wreck-Gar is definitely an underexploited character. He only had his 1986 toy, then nothing. I'm glad to see Hasbro revisiting him.

    That would make sense from a marketing point of view. It would force fans to buy two of him just for the extra coolness, especially if Hasbro repaint Wreck-Gar as Junkyard.

    Yes, as others have said, if Wreck-Gar can ride himself, that's definitely cause to purchase 2.

    It doesn't really matter what line Wreck-Gar is from (ie the style/aesthetic) because in G1 he wasn't really part of the race of actual 'official' Tranformers, so if he looks WFC, he might still be able to line up alongside the CHUG figures...

    ...maybe.

    No way. He's gotta be a new mold. They're not going to redeco Animated into Generations.

    I thought that was more of a Dodge Challenger, but I still like this idea.

    Not as much as GENERATIONS WRECK-GAR ZOMG, but it still sounds intriguing.
