Takara Tomy's current Transformers Masterpiece designer Shogo Hasui has just tweeted a new silhouette of their upcoming Masterpiece MP-20 Wheeljack! Wheeljack is scheduled for release sometime in the first quarter of 2014, but so far the only teasers we've seen are a couple of silhouettes. According to Dengeki Hobby Shogo Hasui will be replaced as the lead Masterpiece designer in 2014 by the line's former designer Hironori Kobayashi, who brought us MP-01 through MP-09. Check out the latest teaser below.

Not really digging that open gap in the heel, but I'll need to see more of the details to better judge it.

Don't like the change of mp designers and I'm not a fan of those earlier non Shogo mp designs but the good news is that I think that he already finished designing this Wheeljack and mp Bumblebee. This Wheeljack looks good. I wanna see how his ankles turn out.

Anyone here read Japanese? I'm not sure how accurate Google Translate really is; did Hasui actually say that Wheeljack was his latest MP... or his last MP?

I hope the news about a replacement designer turn out to be a misunderstanding, I don't want a different designer, I want Hasui to stay. Especially for Bumblebee and the inevitable new Megatron.

Also, as far as I'm aware of, the MP-10 was Hasui's baby, not Kobayashi's.

I ran the image through Photoshop to bring out a little bit of detail, courtesy of fellow Seibertronian Anna-Christine Sanders-Browning on Facebook who did the same thing.

Seems to be saying his "latest" or "most recent" MP work.

The head sculpt, forearms, and shins look good so far. Bicep/shoulders, ankles, and waist are not looking so hot from this angle. But I am holding out for more details.

I'm not loving this silhouette so far. Maybe when we see something a little more detailed I will get a little more excited.

Wow, lots of stuff I'm not liking with this...

Wings are too skinny (I want my Wheeljack with large wings). Thighs too skinny. Hips too skinny.

Those panels (wrist guards?) that stickout at the hands are in the wrong place, and probably should be fused to the forearms instead of the hands...

His feet look really hollowed out in the back.

Its funny, I thought he would be one of the easier cars to pull off?

Compared to those of today, MP Megatron is debatable. And maybe MP Rodimus with all his QC issues.

Possible Sunstreaker retool? All it takes is a new car mode shell while keeping the transformation intact :-$

Looks OK to me:




And just for kicks!



Remember, a lot of people had problems with the width of MP Sideswipe's chest relative to the animation model. When all's said and done, I think Wheeljack will be an excellent addition to the MP lineup.
