Now bring on a cartoon-based redeco. Something like "MP-20A Wheeljack Anime Ver." or what have you. :D

This figure continues to impress me. He is so well proportioned from top to bottom. There really isn't an area where a lot of kibble congregates. Wheeljack is very streamlined.

Thanks to Seibertron.com user Cyberpath for the tip, and check out the image below!

Looks great. I see two or three different shades of white like the neck and back of hands. I hope it will all be one uniform white in the release. I still find it comical that they have given Wheeljack such a tiny gun. I'll pretend the gun is a pneumatic drill and have him displayed building something.

WOW, looks so good. Cannot wait for this one. Reprolabels will have their work cut out creating a sticker set for this that doesn't cover that lovely paint work.

His waistline looks horrible. That little bit of non-show-accurate hood is a very poor substitute for an actual abdominal region, which there should be plenty of room for in the back of his vehicle mode (as with MP Bumblebee). The top of his pelvis is the worst part, curved and minimal instead of square and solid. It is really obvious from a lot of angles that his actual waist actually only consists of a pipe.

If I could actually afford to collect masterpieces I would pass on this one.

He was originally due for release by the end of July. I've just been told he's due end of August so this looks like he's been delayed FOR A SECOND TIME. Ridiculous. They ought to have learned how to stick to schedule by now.

I don't know if it will directly delay the release of Bumblebee but he was never going to be released on time anyway. None of them are.

Thanks to a tip from fellow Seibertron.com user fenrir72, we have bad news for those of us excitingly awaiting Takara Tomy's Transformers Masterpiece MP-20 Wheeljack. It appears its release date has been pushed a little further yet, and is currently set to appear in September rather than July August. Read on below for the communication from Hobby Search.

He was never scheduled for July, its always been August.

Its also worth noting that no one else got these emails and none of the other retailers sent them out Annnnnd HLJ just put up NEW pre-orders for WJ. What probly happened is they decided to make more, but release that second batch in Sept instead.

Either way, people shouldn't freak out till the two big retailers (AE/HLJ) in Japan or BBTS confirms. Then you can freak out if you want.
