    I don't speak for all Wreckers/comics fans, but I'm sure most will agree when I say this figure is better than having no Rack'n'Ruin at all. Characters never need to look like their original counterparts. Transformers wouldn't be what it is if not for those changes over the decades.

    Why? The original design looks dumb as rocks.
    I much prefer the Cyberverse look to the two whole bots joined at the shoulder.

    I've got mixed feelings about this. On the one hand I like that we're actually getting a Rack'N'Ruin and I'm definitely considering getting it.

    On the other, I still want a toy of the Marvel version as well. You can give me repaints, remolds, updates, etc, of the Cyberverse version, and I'll probably be happy to get them.

    But I still want the original.

    It's a bit like G1 fans getting the movie toys. A lot of them are pretty cool, but we still want cartoon style Optimus (I mean, even now we're still arguing over blue/grey hands. :D ).

    It's that nostalgic wackiness. The Cyberverse toy looks a bit more 'sensible' (imo). You get a single body with two heads. In contrast, the Marvel guys were two almost entirely separate bodies only stuck together at the shoulders. The first time I saw them, I was thinking something like 'Who thought this was a good idea? Oh right, they're probably gonna split. Right?.'.

    I want the toy.

    I got Siege Zetar for a similar reason.

    Personally, unless it's an MP, I don't care to have Cyberverse or Generations to look exactly like a G1 iteration (whatever that may be, comics, toon, etc).

    As long as it keeps some important characteristics of the G1 character. Target/Headmasters have to be Target/Headmasters, etc.

    Rack N Ruin never transformed as far as I remember. They were only green, conjoined robots. That's all I care about. I'll play with him a couple times and then he'll just go on the shelf for rest of its life.

    Think on the positive side, Rack'n'Ruin's finally made the jump into toy! Impactor's first official figure was pretty bad, the FoC one, but 7 years later we've got a great figure of him in both 80s and IDW style. Be patient and there's a good chance the same will happen with Rack'n'Ruin too!

    Back in the day, my local comic shop used to order Transformers UK comics for me. When he remembered. I only got a few chapters of Target 2006 when the story was new, but issue #82 (the issue with the Wreckers) was one of the ones he got in. I loved the team and have been a fan of that era of Wreckers ever since. I will happily buy Rack'n'Ruin when it comes out, even if the design is different from Ron Smith's original design.

    same here , so their the only ones on my wreckers team, other than the 1 exception which is bulkhead. he just feels like he fits to me with that head and body. looks like geoff senior art or something to me

    to be honest I never liked the 4 legs thing . For me I wanted two torsos and two heads , just like the Cyberverse design, so I am happy with this.
