Retro NCS, Alts and History – Wrecker

Hey, my fellow Plastic Addicts. Today we start and finish the Rocket Racoon Mini-BAF wave as well as finish the year of the Mini-BAF. Well, it wasn’t supposed to be. Not including the original Puck wave that was exclusive to Preview, there was supposed to be another wave for the Mini-BAF. This wave included Radioactive Man, Tiger Shark, Blizzard, Batroc, Agent Venom, Thor (Marvel Now!), a retail version of Moonstone and Songbird with Jubilee being the BAF. However, with the low sales and the horrible distribution of the line (trust me it was WAAAAAYYYY worse than it is now), Marvel Legends was all but cancelled for the second/third time. All the figures in that wave would make it out in one form or another, either as part of a wave, box set or store exclusive. Only the retailed version of Moonstone and the figure of Songbird (which did receive a far superior figure later) never made it out. (Noticing a pattern here Hasbro). But, as you may have guess, Hasbro wasn’t finished with the line as they would launch a new line a few months later. However, it wasn’t the end of experiments. I’ll talk about that next time.

Anyway, back to this only character I haven’t done a NCS for in the Rocket Racoon wave. (I have already done Phoenix, Black Panther, Scarlet Spider (Kaine Parker), Hawkeye and the BAF Rocket Raccoon.) We now look at the leader of the Wrecking Crew, which who they gained their name from, the man with the mystic Crowbar, The Wrecker. Like all the Crew, he does need a remake. If they do decide to redo them, then I think Wrecker should be first. He is the face of the team and has battle the most heroes.

I have also added the following Alts to the site thanks to Sabretooth, Sandman and Sasquatch (Exiles):

Even though I will be talking the next wave (the Mandriod wave) next time, I have done all the character in that wave so next time with will go over to the start of the Spider-man subline with looking at the official 616 Spider-Girl as well as a quick one for Amazing Spider-man and Electro.
