    Isn't it about time for the next Wreckers capsule? Every day my Diaclone Twin Twist glares at me on the shelf, as if it's somehow my fault there isn't a Diaclone Topspin standing next to him.

    Unfortunately if Amazon didn’t sell out of them (hence the sale) they likely won’t do it again. Best hope is individual characters (DIACLONE TOPSPIN!) in other capsules.

    The capsule for this year is the "comic universe" pre-war stuff, so no Wreckers

    See, I knew this would happen when they didn't do him at the same time. Odds on ever seeing a Diaclone Topspin are hovering between slim to none, and slim is heading for the door... :mad:

    If there's money to be made, there's always a chance Hasbro will toss out an easy repaint. Diaclone repaints have been dropping like crazy. Give it time. It may not be in a Wreckers box, or have the Wreckers insignia, but I'm sure they'll get to him.

    I think it would suck a little for those that want them together and to have the same insignia. But yeah, whether a selects, Walmart, Amazon subline I'm sure a release is in the cards.
    Maybe a Buzzworthy pack that is as surprising as Fangry was

    Just saw this. Of all things, I picked up a core Nemesis Prime for 6$.
    There were a couple of other tempting opportunities here and there, but I pretty much already got everything I wanted from Wreck n' Rule prior.
    What I'm most tempted to grab is a second Twin Twist so I can make the other Diaclone variant.

    Yeah Topspin is necessary, amazing Twintwist is on sale, it's a wonderful coloration. People will be regretting that in a year.

    I had been wanting WNR Bulkhead because I really liked that camo deco! I decided not to double dip on colors since I had the Legacy Bulkhead, but he was on sale for Prime Day, so I grabbed a copy for a discount. I'm really glad I did. Such a charming figure. :) 

    I also don't want my hammer parts if anyone wants those. I have the paper hammer parts from WRN Bulkhead, Spindle/Impactor, and Springer.

    I actually still need to grab a replacement WnR Springer due to mine coming with 2 matching fins.

    I’m just here to make you want Diaclone Topspin more like the terrible tempter that I am. Don’t mind me.

    (It’s okay, I like him too.)

    Are your "93" numbers crooked in alt mode i.e. higher on one side than the other?

    I tried to get leadfoot on hasbro pulse but uts sold out. He may show up somewhere else that's not ebay or amazon lol.

    I had an interesting situation happen back in 22 when I bought 3 figures on hasbro pulse uk and only 2 arrived. No leadfoot. Then I started questioning whether I had actually bought him. It turned out I had. I didn't chase it up because he had been, according to them, delivered but he seemingly disappeared so whether he was swiped ill never know.

    I'm well over it now though. As I said maybe he will show up again and he will actually get to me. Lol

    God, I'm so tempted to grab everyone from this capsule, I think Wreck N' Rule is probably my favorite theme out of all the ones they've done. Just a couple questions I have for people first:

    1.) Have there been any newly-found cases of yellowing on any of the figures recently? I knows there's that weird thing with Leadfoot & mainline Bulkhead just seems to be a constant victim, but I haven't known of any others.

    2.) If we were to get a second wave of Wreckers who would you want/expect to be in it? I myself think Leader Sandstorm & Topspin are shoeins, but I'd also like to add new folks like a couple Armorizers into the mix, just cause I think they'd fit really well with the group.

    What would that change though? Even if non-transformable replacement heads were made, you still wouldn’t be able to transform them without removing the heads due to how the engineering works.
