#35: Transformers Animated Wreck-Gar

Put down that chainsaw and listen to me! Weird Al, in toy form! For a variety of reasons, I love this toy. It's Transformers Animated. It's Weird Al. Wreck-Gar has probably the best line of the entire Animated series: "I am Wreck-Gar. I dare to be stupid!" You see, the original Wreck-Gar was voiced by Eric Idle (who is also awesome), and when he was introduced, Weird Al's song "Dare To Be Stupid" was playing. So in Animated, he's voiced by Weird Al. And he says that line. Too cool.

Anyway, this toy is great too. The toys in the Animated line all seem to be. The transformation is pretty easy, his robot mode is mostly just folded up inside of the dumpster part of the garbage truck. Despite having a big backpack hanging off of him, he is actually pretty well balanced. His alt mode even has a cool action feature, you can flip switches on the loading arms to raise and lower them. My only complaint is that the head only has swivel articulation. A balljoint would have been cool, but it's not a big complaint.

This is definitely one of my favorite Transformers so far. Remember: mashed potatoes can be your friend!


  1. I have yet to get this toy. Await for it at retail...with discount. LOL

  2. Ahhhh this is probably the only Voyager I want in the TFA series! But we are really slow on the line, we just got the wave with Blurr and Samurai Prowl recently! Still regretting I didn't pick them up when there was a sale!
