Transformers - AXLEGREASE!

Transformers Legacy: Evolution – Axlegrease (Deluxe Class) - Hasbro 2023

When rumors started late last year that a female Junkion figure was coming to the Transformers toy line, I was super excited. I assumed this had to be Nancy from the 1986 episode The Big Broadcast of 2006. As the only female Junkion in the original cartoon (and maybe ever?), I didn't even consider another possibility. Plus I always assumed the 2019 Siege Chromia would be retooled for Nancy. But when the official announcement finally came, I think we were all surprised two-fold by a brand-new character in a brand new Decepticon faction of Junkions. Junkions always seemed to be their own independent race with no specific allegiances (although Autobot-leaning), yet the establishment of a villainous group of Junkions somehow still made sense. I also like the concept of a new color palette of purple, navy, and silver for the bad guys. I'm assuming we'll be seeing more original characters now, but I'm hoping they find a way to get Nancy into the mix somehow too. Let's check out Axlegrease below!

Axlegrease has a body that is retooled from Scraphook and Towline. Her color scheme and new head give her some distinct feminine qualities, but she still gives off the overall blocky vibe of a retooled male character.

Axlegrease comes with various thrusters, exhaust pipes, and a tow hook. This can be affixes to a variety of ports on her body when in robot mode. Additionally, her limbs can be removed and swapped with other modern Junkions.

Axlegrease's vehicle mode is a Mad-Max style muscle car.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Axlegrease with two recent Transformers ladies: Override and Flamewar.
