Over at TagHobby.com we've spotted a listing for a pre-order on Masterpiece MP-20 Wheeljack, showing a release date of August 23, 2014.

Transformers News: Masterpiece MP -20 Wheeljack Image Sighted

This is the first look we have had of the figure, other than the teaser silhouette shown previously. The image is a bit rough, but it gives a pretty clear indication of what the figure will look like. The pre-order price is 6,500 yen, and hopefully this will be just the beginning of more detailed pics we will start seeing.

Looks great! Wheeljack really deserved a Masterpiece as his G1 toy had very poor resemblance to the cartoon

The figure looks great! I think this is the first new figure from the old designer.

My boy Wheeljack the rebel is still looking alright, actually looking Great. First thing I saw that stood out in car mode was the almost panoramic like windshield and side windows, that looks nice. But what's up with the pronounced sunk in grilll part, is that aerodynamic. This mold almost looks to good and I really don't remember giving praise to a prototype like that before.

TAKARA SHOULD MAKE ALL OF THESE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE MP SPORTS CARS AT LEAST SMALL LEADER SIZE AND BIGGER. They would make a fortune.

Leader size Wheeljack, imo. But overall, I am happy with this design.

Oh, I just hope he is at least the same size as mp prowl or bigger NOT, NOT smaller.

I have to disagree with you there.. his flashi g ear thingys were an integral part of the character on the show and if they can easily work it into the design without charging an extra £20 id be all for it. Its probably worth £5 or maybe even £10 to me

I also hope he is not smaller than MP Prowl but realistically he will be tthe same size.

That alt mode... Just so perfect.

I almost don't care if he will be decked out in proper G1 toy 'Alitalla' colors or if he will be in the simpler colors like in the animation. Although official Alitalia sponsoring would be icing on the cake.

Does anybodybelse see the potential for a HEAVY retool into Sunstreaker using the same basic Transformation as a base?

Still by the current designer. He confirmed that on Twitter.

And just as I said in the Year in Review, this is what I'm looking forward to this year.

Can't wait to see the colours!
