One of the BotCon 2012 convention exclusives are the Shattered Glass Junkions, a three-pack of figures for $99 including Wreck-Gar, Scrap Iron (using the eHobby exclusive Scrapheap head mold), and Junkheap (using the Hasbro release of the same name).
These figures all have the same deco with different head molds and are quite the bunch.
Read either the bios below or jump right into the gallery!
Thanks to soundwavempl
for the set!
"Oh, we have such sights to show you..."
A hastily assembled mass of scrap metal and spare parts, WRECK-GAR was experiment, one in which his creators provided him the ability to clone himself at will, using the bodies of his fallen robots as raw material. What they did not count on was his ability to take this power and use it on living machines! Taking a sadistic pleasure in giving the "gift" of his own image to other robots, he gained a following of Cybertronians, who had lost hope and were seeking an escape from the misery of the AUTOBOTS/DECEPTICON conflict. In time, after both AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS fell victim to WRECK-GAR's hive, the factions had no choice but to work together to destroy his JUNKIONS and imprison him on Paradron. When ULTRA MAGNUS began his campaign, he freed WRECK-GAR from his cell and offered him a place in his personal army, which he accepted. Aside from his Energon Axe weapon and cerebral inhibitor blaster, WRECK-GAR has full control over any Junkion warrior he creations. His overconfidence is his greatest weakness.
"You have been deemed scrap. Your existence no longer matters."
The process of become one with the Hive is not something that most do willingly but is forced upon them by WRECK-GAR. The conversion strips a Transformer of its ember, leaving all but the faintest echo if its previous self. Evil AUTOBOT guards on the prison planet Paradron made excellent seeds for Junkion Type 001 TYPE conversion due to their innate sense of loyalty to their superiors and love of seeing Heroic DECEPTICONS in suffrage. The Hive limits the sensory perceptions of the Junkion troops, but many Type 001 feel a slight tinge of pleasure when in the midst of destruction. Following the will of the Hive, Type 001 troops serve as front line warriors in battle. They revel in seeing their four-bladed axe rip an enemy into pieces.
"The Hive is order. You are in chaos. Your destruction will bring order."
a flaw in the Hive integration resulted in the creation of Junkion Type 002 forms. These TRANSFORMERS are best described as hoarder of all thigns. Junkion Type 002 often venture far from the core of the Hive in search of scrap parts to increase their collection. No dulles armor, broken missile launcher, bodies with missing limbs or heads are beyond the hoarding needs of a Junkion Type 002. Even the smallest scrap of out-ated diecast metal is desired. Taking advantage of the flaw, WRECK-GAR has ordered the Junkion Type 001 to melt any collections amassed by a Type 002 into shells for new additions to the Hive. The sense of loss felt by Junkion Type 002 implores them to continue their collections of scrap. The Hive saw value in the collections of Type 002 by the designation JUNKHEAP, deeming his hoard to be exempt from the smelting pool. Junkion Type 002 are second line warriors for the Hive. Their function is to defend WRECK-GAR in battle, sacrificing themselves if necessary.
It was kinda awesome of Takara to allow TFCC to use the Takara exclusive head sculpts for the junkion & from vortex for spinister.
Thanks for the bios. I read them they sound interesting.

These guys looks pretty awesome in person. Very impressed.
Yeah, I dropped the cash for buy it now, cause I knew that people would actually WANT these figures and they would sell for outrageous prices.
I am so glad I bought these guys last night. All I need to do now is buy E-Hobby's Scrap Heap and I got both sets.
Also the $200 I paid was a lot less then what 3 of the auctions have gone for
