I recently picked up 3rd party KFC's Crash Hog & Dumpyard (Masterpiece Wreck-Gar and Junkyard and decided they deserved a full review. I'm extremely impressed with both figures!

Some quick thoughts:

I love the whole presentation of the figures from the nice artwork to the book style packaging.

Both figures come with a ton of accessories that you can swap between the two of them and get a lot of play or display options.

Paint apps turned out really well, articulation is solid, and the placement of diecast is smartly placed.

These are my Masterpiece Wreck-Gar and Junkyard. They have a lot of personality, and look the part! I'm hoping KFC puts out more Junkions, because the figures are a lot of fun!

Glad you guys are digging the pics! Thanks! :)

 

Took these a few days ago showing off X-Transbots Swarm or their version of Masterpiece Sweeps. Quality on these turned out great, and they look like the came right out of the '86 movie!

It could be Targetmaster Artfire which is a repaint of Inferno.

I am sure that they will do both figures as Takara Tomy milks a sculpt out anyway possible. Because Hauler (green Grapple) is a simple redeco'd fig, I can see him being packaged with Inferno's head and being sold in a limited manner like MP Tigertracks and Loudmouth.

 

As for Artfire, I can see him getting either a new targetmaster figure or a repainted Fireball from the US MP Rodimus Prime set and with a new head as a normal release.

I am surprise Takara never release a G1 reissue of Artfire. Since I cant get it in G1, i would take an MP version.

You do know if they do him he be like how Ramjet & Thrust are by there mail in order. Which mean the price be higher.

Well I certainly like Grapple better than Inferno.

Sure, I think the deco carries the mold a bit better, but more than that, I really like the extra molded details on the arms and legs, while Inferno's complete lack of visual interest in those areas is a real buzzkill. Plus I don't have a whole lot of golden yellow on my Transformers shelf. Will be some nice variety in a sea of red and white Autobots.

I just hope in the next set of MP (Next Year) that we can get some MP Combiners like the Protectobots or even the Stuntacons. Also they don't need to do them all at once they could do say Motormaster by himself then do say Blaster and Rewind. Then go back to do Drag Strip and Dead End at the same time and then go and do say Glavatron then finish the rest of the Stuntacons.

I think if Takara goes and makes an MP combiner, the logical choices would be Devastator or Bruticus. Logical because both molds have a lot of recolor potential, though Devastaor might be made first for being more popular and for being a season 1 bot.

If they do I just hope they split them up. To me it would be to hard to get all 6 at ones. Maybe split them up by 2 each or like I said with any of the others the made bot like Motormaster,Hot Spot, Onslaught and so on be by them self and have the other in twos Dead End & Drag Strip, Brawl & Blast Off Groove & Streetwise and on and on. I just don't want them all in one box cause can u emagin [ms] how much it be for all of them. They be more then Ultra Magnus is and Ramjet & Thrust.
