Is it true that mashed potatoes can be your friend? I wonder which Wreck-Gar would know the answer to that...

Oh please tell me you guys had enough budget to get weird al back for season 3.
Any clarity on the rumors about season 3 being the last?
and I hope he gets a UK release

Awesome pics! Nice color-coordinating. You should have a column in Martha Stewart Living: Transformers Decorating with Derrick.

Love your redesign of Wrek Gar! And that toy looks sweet. Can't wait to get it.

That small Japanese 'minimate' version of WG makes him look like Man-at-Arms from He-man.

Sir, I'm quite disappointed that TFA Season 3 will be the last one. I hope you can be involved in a new TF show, should they be developing one. You did a great job on this one! I'd love to see your sophisticated design aesthetic continue in Transformers.

Oh, come now. They are all just friends!

All we need now is a Classics Wreck-Gar to fill out the line up.

Wreck-Gar in the third row down says "I'm crushing your head!"

Wow! Nice Wreck-Gar collection, Sir. I really like all your designs in TFA. I hope if it does end in season 3, the last season will run 30+ episodes. :)

Btw, I can't wait for that TFA WG to land on our shores... I'll definitely get that one.

Guys, right now, Derrick can't even confirm when Season 3 will start, much less whether it'll be the end of TFA. Can we ease off that kinda question here, maybe? At least for a few months? Thanks.

Mind, with the second movie becoming the big focus this summer, it wouldn't be surprising (dismaying, but not surprising) if TFA was allowed to end, at least for the present, but there's still at least a whole season left to enjoy, so let's focus on that!

Now, back to the topic at hand: Wreck-Gar! It's interesting to see the effects of the drastically different design approaches between the original toy and the TFA version. The original seems to have more intricate surface detail, though that effect is likely enhanced by its stickers. It's well articulated for when it was made, but still looks stiff next to the new one. Between the TFA version's articulation and overall aesthetic, it's a much more expressive toy, conveying more personality than poor G1 Wreck-Gar's toy ever did. (The Mongol-bearded Myclone edition helps some; facial hair is good for expressing character, but only to an extent.)

I like the art direction in these photos. You should be an art director. "Dare to be stupid!

Its good to see more characters coming out.But Mr Wyatt,it does seem to me a liittle packed in if you know what i mean.Now i love the show but you said so yourself that there are going to be more than 10 new characters in season 3.
Now im just wondering how are you going to fit all those characters in in 1 season and 13 episodes? you worth to have to make a 4th season.

Would everyone please stop it with the "cancelled at Season 3" malarkey? This isn't the place for that.

this is totally the place for baseless rumors and allegations! After all, if we ask the same inane questions enough times, our humble host will completely and totally violate all his various non-disclosure agreements and tell us EVERYTHING WE EVER WANTED TO KNOW!!!

Also, he will make toys of all of our favorite characters, because he can do that! (he can start with impactor)
