The Junkions, Wreck-Gar, Junkheap, and Scrap Iron are Botcon 2012 Souvenir Exclusives.
Botcon Universe: Shattered Glass
Molds Used: Transformers 0Generations Deluxe Wreck-Gar, Transformers 2010 Generations Deluxe Junkheap, and Transformers United Deluxe Scrapheap. (The same mold with three different heads.)
Name Origin: Wreck-Gar was originally a G1 movie character and the name was reused for the Generations toy based on him. Junkheap is the name of the Generations toy that was repainted with a new head from Wreck-Gar. Scrap Iron has a bit of a multiple personality disorder going on. The signs at Botcon list his name as Scrapheap, which is the name of the Japanese exclusive that uses his head with the Wreck-Gar body, but his Tech Spec lists him as Scrap Iron. I’ve only heard him called Scrap Iron, so it seems the sign was a simple mistake on the sign. You can see a picture of the sign below.
Since they are from the Shattered Glass universe, the Junkions are done in Insecticon colors, which look awesome. I’m not a huge fan of the mold, I can’t really get him to stand up straight as one leg seems longer than the other (might just be I missed something during transformation) but they do look great. The three toys are identical accept for the heads. These are some of the best of the Botcon 2012 toys, though at $99 for the set of three, it was overpriced in my opinion for. That’s $33 each for deluxe toys that had no new molding. That’s overpriced.
Thanks for reading!
