    Grabbed the last Wreck-Gar at Ray Mears Target. Got home and one of the spikes was bent (figured they would be rubberized, but pleasantly surprised). Anybody know if the ol' hot water/ice water fix works on them?

    If they are cast in PVC (or rubbery) it most definitely will sort the issue.

    Just tried it with water right at boiling for about 10 seconds, then straightened the spike and dunked in ice water.

    Worked like a charm.

    Nice. Yeah it always does with those types of plastics. However sometimes hitting it with cold water immediately can make it revert back to the bent position.

    So how do you like Wreck-Gar?

    I love him in both modes. Very solid, great articulation, and enough detail to look good.

    My only gripes are the (relatively minor) hollow limb areas in robot mode and a very loose feeling transformation (most of the process is just bending limbs into roughly the correct shape and then tabbing. Very few things seem to truly mesh together other than by tabbing.) But once he's in cycle form, he's very solid and looks great. Hope we get a couple retools for other Junkions.

    Oh, I have little doubt. Hasbro will milk it for all that they can. But in this case it'll be a good thing.

    Has Galvatron, Rodimus Prime, The Ark, or any of the wave 3 deluxes been spotted around the Tullahoma-Manchester area? Thanks in advance.

    I don't mean to bump this thread, but has anyone spotted the Ark a bit closer to Virginia ? I know about the Virginia thread, I just mean a little closer than Coolsprings.

    So I have a question;

    I would like to sell a fairly significant amount of my toys and would prefer to do so locally. This doesn’t have to be a fast process I’m really just looking for solid options. Locally pretty much meaning the Tennessee area but if I can load up a truck and drive it to a store to sell that’s within the options.

    Do any of you have stores or places that you like to sell stuff like Transformers, Neca, G.I Joe etc?

    Thanks in advance.
    Still looking for the Sparkless Seeker Walmart pack btw if anybody has seen him lately.

    There are a few stores around here towards the Franklin area that would buy stuff, there is Replay Toys out in Hendersonville, TN the they’ll buy practically anything for toys, there is Franklin Toy Works out here in Franklin, Tn, Outer Limits out in Murfreesboro, TN, and Total Rad Toyhouse out in Nashville, that’s just some I can name off the top of my head there are a few others but I feel like you’ll get more bang for you buck if you go to these places

    It was on their Facebook page. Must have been a typo then. I commented on the post but it was deleted
