    I'm an adult collector who liked the '80s movie and thus Wreck-gar. I have a few of the newer sculpts from the last few years/2000s movies, but am primarily a vintage collector. Just wondering: if you could only have one of the two, which would you have. Saw a Junkheap today but passed... may have been a mistake.

    So you only get one: '80s Wreck-gar or '10s Junkheap?

    junkheap is actually quite amazing, like the animation model come to life, while og wreckgar is a blocky shadow of the on-screen character. I voted for the newer figure.

    Junkheap by far. If you want a Wreck Gar, try tracking down a Reveal the Shield Wreck Gar. The 80s G1 Wreck Gar is pretty awful even by the standards of the era.

    G1 first, I voted Wreck Gar. AFAIK Junkheap is not an onscreen character so why even bother if you could only have one.

    if your picking, pick junkheap, why you ask because this is his first toy and if you ever want to put togther the g1 characters this works well
