    Yup. They repurposed her as a Junkion. Same thing in Rebirth when some members of the Hive wore the same armor during the headmaster convertion.

    I'd say minimum 9mm, but I reckon he's packing .45s.

    I wish we had more of the Lucky Rogers kits as they were injection molded in color molded plastics. Those two sets they did back in the day were excellent!

    The Junkions would look like this if he was a regular sized motorcycle.

    Wow, that is one epic Junkion collection!

    I never realized Hasbro and 3rd Party companies made so many!

    Being able to swap the wheels around in bot mode will allow you to change up the sillouette of the other junkions a bit as well. One with 2 on his legs, one with two on his arms, mirror configuration from Wreck-Gar.

    I prefer this to the big ugly armature on the arm of the old Generations one.

    Seriously Hasbro, repaint the hell out of this one. I'm all in.

    To be honest, KFC was/is a ripoff of existing properties from Hasbro.

    Wreck-Gar looks pretty good. I could definitely go for a Cy-Kill (Sickle?) remold, the standard red white blue "Patriotic" colored version could be a good Mercenary and the green black "Toxic" colored version could be Shattered Glass.

    It also really isn't, given aside from being based on the same design, the two toys don't share any similar elements of engineering. The proportions are also different.

    KFC's looks like a 3rd party attempt at Wreck-gar. Hasbro's looks like Wreck-gar.

    You might be thinking about the size of an Earth based motorcycle. Junkions are an alien race of robots that can turn into giant motorcycles to carry each other around. These are alien vehicles that only share some similarities with Earth cycles in the sense that they both have two wheels, much like most Transformers have arms and legs like we do.

    And according to the right most pic, apparently the wheel on his knee is supposed to be lodged into the front of his knee like someone chucked it at his leg like a throwing star. Don't even get started on where the front wheel goes...he did NOT have good luck with his own wheels that day.

    That has to be the most error ridden "official" drawing I've seen of him - or anyone.

    To say nothing of the wheel cutting his left arm in half in that forward view.

    It's like the tires were improperly layered in an image editor or something.

    the wheels are supposed to be going transparent to show the arm and leg detail underneath them. That being said it's a shitty transparency effect so it comes across as a layering issue, you can mostly tell if you pay attention to how the spikes go through them.

    Photoshop did not exist when these turnarounds were created. Transparency effects were left to an artist. Relax folks.
