Really hope they make a toon-accurate redeco later on since I really don't care for the real life car-accurate deco, but the mold itself looks fantastic.

So does WJ look like this in G1? I don't remember the black windows?

Nope!


This deco is based on the real life Lancia Stratos instead of Wheeljack's cartoon colors.

That's what I thought. I hope at least Hasbro or Takara has the clear version windows. That black is a pass for me. :roll:

Every time I see this, I think of Dr Smoov's "S.O.S. Wheeljack"
They need to release a version of this with a button for sound clips so we can hear him say "F@$# you Huffer!"

We don't know if Hasbro will do one; they haven't released any of the (2) licensed cars to date. The next MP on their list is another Grimlock reissue.

At any rate, this deco doesn't look bad at all. Especially considering the original toy.

I agree the windows could be a lot less dark, but otherwise he looks amazing. That fourth pic is so cool, almost like he just jumped out of the cartoon. 8)

I think Prime is the only MP not to have tinted windows... I guess they're trying to hide their holo-drivers ;)

I know it's become something of a point of contention with some people, but for me, I love the vehicle Wheeljack was based on, so seeing it rendered so beautifully right down to the red rims on the wheels is fantastic.

Looks great! Looking at the photos I can almost hear Chris Latta's voice.

The windshield are consistent with the other Autobot cars.

It appears that the "wings" are made from clear plastic as a homage to the G1 toy.

The black is all dandy with me. I can even tolerate some of the excessive green.

My problem is with the bit of the hood still under windshield in bot mode. That is the biggest let down for me.

the wings and windscreen on the original (or at least the Classics Heroes version I got) were a bit cloudy/dark than completely clear, so that doesn't bother me on this guy. looks pretty great.

lol. I love Dr Smoov's impression of Wheeljack!


I am surprised that this has an August release date. They seem to be ahead of schedule with the painted prototype. This is going to be a long 5 month wait.

End of August for online Japanese shops to be exact.

ummm sir think real hard here.... if the original has not been released, how do we have a knock off...cant say it hasn't been done before, but very unlikely there will be a ko before official realease... ~even grimlock could figure that out :BOOM: ~

makes sense that they would. they like to release the least anticipated versions first.
