My fiancée is awesome, and to cheer me up after a rough day she got me a present… A present for which she said I would be ridiculed later. Thoroughly. :)
The next part of this post is really aimed at her, but it’s too funny to leave unposted.
I am Wreck-Gar! And I collect garbage!
Yep, I got Jetfire and Jetstorm. Wreck-Gar was fine, but I made fun of the twins with her for a week or more… I admit, I was wrong about them. I’m not a completest collector, or one of those people who buys repaints or even molds that I don’t like. The twins are much better in hand than in stock pictures, to the point I have to admit I think they’re pretty cool little figures.
Wreck-Gar was acquired a few days after the twins, and any concerns about his balance should be relieved by these pictures. Wreck-Gar is holding both of them without support and is standing stable.
I’m kind of sad because they’re probably going to be in that pose for a while, and all three of them are very fiddle friendly. Yes, even the twins. They’re much better than I thought they’d be, and when I read the pack in comic I kept hearing ‘two wild and crazy guys’ from snl. They didn’t sound near as cool as that on the show, but that’s not going to stop me from having them like that on here. :D
Their appearance on the show was kind of a throwaway appearance. “Hi, we’re here and this is how cool we are.” That’s understandable and all, but after easily fighting Ratchet and Optimus, why would they need the added firepower of Safegaurd? I would’ve liked it better as response to a genuine threat, not “Oh hi, we can also do this!”
Oh yeah, to sell toys. :)
