    Only complaint I have is the size of the vehicle...it just looks smaller when seeing it in person. Otherwise a nice figure indeed.

    Yeah, my Wreck-Gar stands just fine. He's a great toy.

    Mine was great till I noticed he has 2 right feet lol. Anyone out there with an extra left foot? I couldn't figure out why mine would fall over so much till I really looked at it and sure enough both black fold out feet have "R" on them.

    Well I did his fingers up with black sharpie so they're toon accurate. I also gave him first release Prowl's stop light weapon as it fits better than his two little scizzor blade things.

    Found this guy at TRU the other day. I'm really impressed. Nice G1 homage, didn't think I'd like Wreck-Gar as a garbage scowl but I do.

    4.5 out 5 easily.

    Got Robotic animated version of Wierd Al

    He is awesome, but a little simple. Another winner for Animated.

    I give him a B.

    Me too

    Yep, Mine as well, that's odd. I have only transformed him once out of the box to a robot, back to truck, then robot again. Must be a problem with the mold?

    I finally got Wreck gar. He's very cool, probably one of my favourites. My only two gripes is that he can't stand without the forks supporting him, and some loose joints. (one of his feet, the shoulders) He's really a lot of fun. Shame he's also the last Animated figure for me. :(  (at least until 2010)

    Mine stands just fine, and in bot mode I usually just store the forks in his backpack. Just try balancing him better.

    Yup, mine too, hasn't fallen yet.

    And yeah, that blasted shoulder joint is a stress mark magnet. It hasn't broke yet on mine, it just seems you need to gently press down on the joint as you are transforming him to help reduce stress on the joint.

    Mine doesn't stand very well, and it turns out it's because he has two left feet/toes .... the black piece.

    The only reason I didn't exchange it is because it would've been too expensive to do so what with me living outside the U.S. and having bought the figure at a U.S. retailer. And is very minor ... he can still stand without the support of the forks, but tends to fall at the slightest touch.
