Seibertron member Primeultimus has brought us more and better quality images of Movie Trilogy Series Wheeljack. In addition to the front of the card, he gives us a look at the side featuring techspecs and the back revealing Wheeljack's bio.

Before Wheeljack joined the cause, the Autobots lagged badly behind the Decepticons in technology, With their brilliant new scientist's innovative mind - And the willingness of a few brave warriors to take part in extremely dangerous experiments - the Autobot arsenal quickly caught up to their enemies'.

I cannot defend myself on another unmentioned site due to having issues with moderators over giving me credit on prior Prototypes / Unreleased figures. I have continued to share this info at no gain to me but as information to share with the community as a whole. This is now the 3rd Confirmed Figure that I myself have sourced and acquired and shared with this Hobby. If you want me to continue to do so I would suggest a little respect when it has been proven again that I am legit and have come with the goods time and time again.

If you wish to remain immature and bandwagon with previous hobbies who have questioned my legitimacy that is your choice. Also you should base your assumptions on facts. I have Delivered those and will continue to deliver those as long as I am part of this hobby!

What is this a reaction to? I don't see anyone questioning your legitimacy, the only real negative comments I see are like 2 typical "Bwah stupid bayformers!" you get in every movie related thread.


This is in reaction to a post on another website not this one.


Honestly there was no need to post this here as it pertained to another webiste. Nobody here knew what you were talking about in this rant so essentially you were defending yourself to no one. Not to mention it nearly started a flame war on page 3.
Please keep other websites issues on other websites and do not bring them here (unless you are publicly called out here). And if someone calls you out here plz report them to me.
Now that is over.
Nice fig thanks for sharing the photos. :grin:

Ideally, I'd have loved a version of the mold that combined the best features of both- the blue deco of the Autobot Que release, the Wheeljack head sculpt and red stripes/deco on the hood. Sadly, I probably won't be able to get my hands on either version, c'est la vie.

That I would have bought if only it would be released.

These unreleased movie toys would be perfect for release through the collectors club or Botcon as a run to order product with the price going down per 1000 orders received.

Or would that be too sensible and idea considering the molds exist and not being used?

The sensible thing to do would be to just release them under the Generations banner.

Which probably won't happen. :-(

Looking at this transformers cool car mode makes me can't wait even more for the tf4 figures. Oh, and they can always use this design for future figures, just put some different car parts on it and there you go. 8)

His head looks more like the traditional design of the Matrix of Leadership than the Movieverse's actual Matrix of Leadership. 8-}


Primeultimus, are you going to take pics of the toy out of the packaging, or do plan to keep in MOSC? I'll understand if you want to keep it sealed, but I'm just curious if there's any more cool pics coming. :D

If only this get released instead of all that yellow car variant that keep getting a release (no offense for BB fans, but I'm kind of sick seeing literally BB shelfwarming everywhere here). I'd get this in a heartbeat. There's something I like about his appearance, color, alt mode...

And that he is Wheeljack.

Looks like a cool robot and vehicle mode, and decent colours. I wouldn't have minded owning this as a different character, but not that ugly headed blue version.

Fireblast at 5??? Seriously?

That's just insulting. This is Wheeljack we're talking about. His original incarnation pulled a freaking bomb out of his back-pocket to hand off to Bumblebee and Spike to go blow up a @#$*# mine for crying out loud. They've neutered him in this version. He's supposed to be an EOD techs worst nightmare. Ugh... the car mode, the bot mode... I'm actually glad this version never made it to the shelves. I'd sooner take the Prime/BH version of 'Jack over this and I can't stand most of the Prime/BH molds.
They did a fairly decent job with a Movieverse Brawn (I like Firetrap in the role of Brawn better though) so why couldn't they come up with something better for this one?
And no, I'm not just hating on it for the sake of hating or going into some G1 fueled nerd rage despite how my opening comments sounded. They really did come out with some amazing molds for the characters that didn't get screen time and I could rave about a few of them for days so it's not that I have some kind of bias. This is me genuinely disappointed after having seen them do so much better with other characters.

You could always, you know, ignore the cardboard. If it helps you to sleep better.

Send this "Johnny come lately" Bayformer repaint to Botcon...? Absolutely!

Mix it in with the current high flying Generations line...?
Not just no but but "Hell no!"

People forget why that last Bayformers line was cut short in the first place. Sneaking these in with Generations figures will not sit well. How about throwing them in with that upcoming Movie where they belong. That would be sensible.

Good thing that pretty much stopped when Beast Hunters began. Now it's every figure of Waves 1 and 2 of each toyline that shelfwarm the toy aisles. ;)

First off, Primeultimus, many thanks for sharing this here and congrats on the figure! Why oh why couldn't they have just used this design for the movie and actually called the character Wheeljack?

Second, please don't let bad experiences on other sites discourage you from sharing here. We always appreciate content such as this from our users.
