    That was fast.

    For being the first bikeformer with SS/WFC engineering, he's pretty damn amazing - here's hoping we get repaints/retools of it, especially something like the Cy-Kill or oil slick digibashes I've seen around.

    SS86 face sculpts really have been missing the mark a bit in quite a few cases unfortunately.
    He looks really good otherwise.

    Best Wreck-Gar ever easily.

    Hoping for a Cy-Kill retool.

    Hasbro, we have to talk. I'm very hard on you most of the time, I do think you deserve some of it, but when you make figures with ankle tilt like this I can't help but pat you on the back.

    I know it's not a recent endeavor; they started doing stuff like this when Siege came around, but I'm thankful for it every single time they do it. Nothing makes me happier when posing a figure than solid ankle tilt.

    I've been putting off the SS86 line since well it's not cheap and I own multiple versions of the characters but this guy just looks so satisfying.

    Well hello perfection. Again.


    The only bigger winner than the Studio Series I can think of, are us, the fans.

    I believe he was referring to WFC-only engineering (SS'86 is WFC after all).

    I hope this means there will be people willing to *ahem* "trade-in" their Universe Junkions. I've always wanted that mold but could never find it at a decent price.

    The promo pics had me a little worried he'd be too orange, they've tended to make him bright orange over the years despite the fact he's virtually all brown in the movie. But here you can see he's just the right shade of burnt orange/brown. He's huge too. I'm very satisfied with him.

    Pretty good stuff. It's apparent the robot mode got priority over the bike mode, which, given the cycle design, is probably a sound decision. On the upside, no faux parts, aside from the head being a false front of the bike, as not doing so would result in a tremendous proportion issue in at least one mode (look at the classic G1 toy for an example)

    You know what I'm realizing? I don't like this Wreck-Gar's colors. I know this red is more accurate to the color corrected movie. However, I think the version that I remember better is more of an orange, closer to the original toy colors. I think I'm going to wait for a toy deco of this guy to come out.

    I'm loving the look of this guy! Although I'm not the biggest fan of that salmon orange. Make it brighter!
