D-Stroy

Wrecktifier is a fictional character and third-party Transformer homage to Grimlock and Trypticon made by Play With This Too. He is a powerful evil villain.

Lost Protectors

Wrecktifier is a character created by Play With This Too for their Lost Protectors series. He is an evil mirror-image of Boneyard. His sword/rifle is called The Denier, a Bonesnapper axe and he carries a Tri-Horn Rampart shield which can reflect energy attacks. He has a Tech Drone companion named D-Stroy who turns from humanoid robot to robotic dinosaur. While D-Stroy is not possessed by a demon imp, he is programmed to be evil.

Development

Wrecktifier's body design is inspired by Pretender Grimlock, while his colors are inspired by Trypticon and Shattered Glass Grimlock. D-Stroy's colors are inspired by Overkill.

Boneyard, Wastelander and Wrecktifier were among the stretch goals for the unsuccessful 2015 Lost Protectors Kickstarter campaign. They were to be unlocked if the campaign raised at least $420,000.[1]

In July 2015 Play With This Too released images the prototype for Boneyard and announced the design for the Tech Drone would be more like Microns.

Play With This Too revealed a color render of Wrecktifier on their Facebook page in August 2015, which changed his skin from black with white around the mouth and eyes to having translucent skin with glitter.

Wrecktifier was one of the ten initial figures available as a reward for the unsuccessful Boneyard & Jetstrike Action Figures Kickstarter campaign, which began in September 2015.[2] During the campaign orange accents were added to his armor.

In May 2017 Play With This Too posted an early color guide of Wrecktifier on Twitter.[3]
