Okay, two things:
But yeah, Twin Twist is here, he has T30 Whirl making a cameo appearance in his box, here's hoping we get him and Whirl in Wave 2 of Wreck 'N Rule. (I actually have T30 Whirl somewhere, but he has a loose pinned joint in his hip which aggravates me.)
Finally cracked open Impactor. I almost thought Spindle came without her lower jaw until I found that it was connected elsewhere. However, it takes less than zero effort to pop her robot mode hands (her feet in dino mode) right off.
Impactor himself looks to have good tolerance…but his shoulder cannon comes off waaaaaay too easily. It's like what the actual slag?
So, floor polish and/or super glue on Spindle's hands and Impactor's shoulder cannon? Actually the cannon bit might be moot if I get the upgrade kit which has an IDW shoulder cannon if I remember correctly.
Oh wait. The IDW shoulder cannon relies on the friction clip thing. Oh shoot.
Still worth using something to add friction for when he's together himself, whatever your preferred method is, from easy mode Floor Polish to more advanced methods like a carefully applied very thin coat of superglue, choose your poison!
Update, it looks like the neck port doesn’t like to stay in the neck hole in mammoth mode and one of the front leg pieces does not like to stay connected to the bicep(?) piece.
I guess it's probably irrelevant if this guy is supposed to be in pieces anyway?
Aw shoot, I think my Leadfoot's left shoulder doesn't want to tab in like the right shoulder.
False alarm, just needed a push. I heard a click.
Yeah, so long as none of his parts have 5mm ports or constructional hollows on the same side you're on a winner!
Okay, I peeled through this thing as delicately as a brain surgeon.
So it seems my copy of MasterD is okay. Hopefully Leadfoot's QC is as good or better.
It's not an easy check I'll grant you, no one can tell you just by looking at this photo – basically you'll have to get him off the card to check that all his limbs have mirrored ported/hollow construction sides, oh, and you'll need to get into the tissue parcel to check his tusks.
Mine was fine again, luckily, BUT as is common with Fossilizers one may want to add more friction to some ports (it was mainly the torso shoulder & upper arm ports in need of care & attention on mine).
Oh shoot! That's a good point!
How does MasterD look? There were some complaints about him having two left parts or something? I can't tell!

I'd be tempted to pop open the Leadfoot/MasterD set just to check for any occurrence of the unfortunate discolouration that has affected some copies, I got lucky with mine but better to know sooner than later, sez I!
Hate to double post, but I got Impactor and Leadfoot a few hours ago today! And much earlier, I got an email saying Twin Teist got bumped from Tuesday to tomorrow!

I'm contemplating whether to rip them open now or wait until Christmas. Thoughts?
Update! Not only did I buy myself the WnR Impactor, Leadfoot, and Twin Twist via Amazon, but I got an email saying Impactor and Leadfoot will be showing up not on 12/20, but tomorrow! Here's hoping the QC gods smile upon me again! (Twin Twist is showing up 12/20.)
(I also got Kingdom Slammer, but he's coming between 12/20 and 12/22 because he isn't coming from Amazon directly.)
T-Wrecks had his Dinobots, not Wreckers (and him being Grimlock is a lame idea).
Apelinq had his Beast Wreckers.
SHIELD Agent 47
Yes, the Beast Wars: Uprising finale text story "Derailment" had Grimlock off-handedly mention being a Wrecker during the Great War, though I doubt it is a detail most people are aware of.
T-Wrecks is not Grimlock or on the Wreckers.
I cannot say if Grimlock has ever been a member of the Wreckers, but he is a wrecker who has wrecked lots of things. LOL
Thanks. I think my biggest gripe is the head since I'm not really a Marvel UK reader, but I think if I have it in hand, it'll grow on me. I'm just content with having an Impactor period. (And the 2-pack means $19.99 for him plus a fossilizer vs $25.95 for him on his own almost sounds like a steal.)
(Though I'm a bit surprised no third-party guys did any alternate head kits. Whatever.)
Lol that’s fair.
Wasn't he (T-Wrecks) a founding member of the Beast Wars Wreckers?
Oh that's what I get for not double checking timestamps on long running threads
2-pack. In-hand the chest on the Marvel Impactor is so much better in person vs Siege and the deco and look is more polished.
I do recommend leg fillers… I just took the set I bought for my 3-pack IDW Impactor and put it on the Marvel 2-pack Impactor despite the slight color differences, lol.
Also, Spindle looks good on Impactor since the colors match and I pretend it’s an “Iron Spider”/“Doc Ock” Impactor, lol. But YMMV if you like weaponizers/fossilizers (I don’t mind them).

Well they can just say he is lol. And fwiw I posted that before the G2 Grimlock leak.
