Leadfoot is the last of three Deluxe class Wreckers to be released, and he was worth every second of the wait. Starting with Leadfoots Vehicle mode, he transforms into a teched-up weaponized NASCAR Racing Vehicle, and is very absolutely gorgeous to look at. His sculpt is very accurate and features tons of little detail including some very intricate wiring and armor paneling, some individual rivets on the front bumper and back panels, and a trio of rocket engines on the back, all of the painted in some way.

Colorwise he fares almost as good, the vehicle is primarily red an black, with some white detailing, along with some metallic dark grey on the front, and some very prominent silver on the two main rocket engines. My only gripe with the paint is that he doesn't have any of the small sponsor decals.

His transformation is fairly involved, a bit finicky, and may seem daunting at first, but once you've done it a few times andhave gotten a grip on how the push the plastic, the process turns out just complex enough to not be boring, but also easy enough to not ruin the fun off transforming him. Overall satisfying transformation.

Then moving on the robot mode, and oh my god, this thing is like a wall, short and wide an as thick as whale. The robot mode is not quite as accurate as the vehicle and has few minore problems. But let's discuss kibble first, and some of it quite obvious, with the car doors hanging off his arms, the back wheel wells sitting behind his shoulders, and more or less the entire roof folded on his back; The wheel wells hinder shoulder articulation a bit, but can be worked around, and the backpack makes him a bit back-heavy. But with all the gripes out of the way, let's onto the good stuff.

Now, sculpting-wise he isn't all too movie accurate, but all the impotant bits are there, his frame is short, but really wide, which is further accented by his really wide hips. This mode uses faux-parts to create the "car doors on the chest" look, but his gut is actually made up from the hood of the car and his back wheels. The two silver engines end up on his shoulders, and it looks good.

The color-scheme remains the same in this mode, although the red is more dominant, and it also adds more grey and this weird beige color. He has more of that wonderful silver paint on his chest and face.

For articulation, his head is on a ball joint that allows ful rotation, and a little up and down movement. The shoulders rotate a full 360 degrees, and there is a second, balljointed shoulder which allows for some in and out movement. The elbows are hinged and allow for just over 180 degrees of bend. The hands can turns inwards on the transformation joint, but this serves little purpose. His ball jointed hips allow for about 60 degress of bend forawrd, backward, and outward, and he also has a fully rotating swivel below the ball joint. Knees are hinged and allow a 90 dgree bend, and the foot and heel can both move a bit. Overall nice posability, and the moving heels and toes help make him really stables.

Leadfoot, like his Wrecker body Topspin, comes with a lot of weapons. A pair of missle racks are mounted on the front, along with two machine guns and a gatling gun on the roof. He also comes with a redeco of Deluxe class Ratchets mechtech weapon. All of the weapons use 5mm pegs, and can attach to any of the 5mm holes present, two of which are conveniently on the arms.

Overall Leadfoot is a great figure, and while he does have few issues, it isn't enough to outweigh all the positive aspects.

So far only released by Takara, Deluxe class Leadfoot offers a screen accurate depiction of the portly Wreckers member. Whilst the toy lacks the sponsor decals shown on screen, its actual colors are more vibrant and thoughtfully appointed than either leaked Hasbro test shots, or the official packaging image shown in this product listing: The green-tinted beige has been replaced with a silvery grey, resulting in more authentic looking robot parts. Meanwhile the toy does not have the typical dyed-red finish, but rather a painted red finish, resulting in a rather striking looking toy. Additionally, the Thrusters, which are also molded in silvery grey, have black detailing to simulate scorch marks.


The toy’s design is quite typical of movie-verse products, with a fairly involved, but not too complex transformation, that results in a robot mode with plenty of almost human character, a great deal of stability, and quite a bit of poseability at the same time. In keeping with other Wreckers, Leadfoot is heavily armed in both modes, with a myriad of weapons that can be detached and used with other figures. The saw blade weapon, as first seen on Deluxe class Ratchet, is one of the better designed Mechtech weapons, and is quite enjoyable in itself.
Overall, this toy comes highly recommended, offering enough differences from the Hasbro version such that even if it is released, it will be highly desirable for variant collectors.
