Seriously, I gotta stop calling stuff... Yes, I expected the Movie Trilogy Wheeljack mold being used, just never expected it to be an exclusive.

I'm liking that Wheeljack... Not sure if I like it enough to try to buy.

And to think the US had a chance of getting him. That Wheeljack was part of the canceled Movie Trilogy series like Ratchet and Darkside Soundwave:



A minor deco change but the principle's the same.

:shock:
Wow... A proper Movie Wheeljack with a head to mach! Do I want to spend over 50$ for this? This thing is tempting.

Is it just me, or does Wheeljack's head look like the Matrix?

I'm interested to see what they do with Wheeljack's bio. Do you think Takara will try to establish him as a different character from "Que" in Dark of the Moon?

All that's left now is Movie Trilogy Series Bumblebee.

Anybody else think that Wheeljack is coming now due to MP Wheeljack in August?

Well, Soundwave and Ratchet came despite MP Soundwave having come out way a way's back and there's no MP Ratchet yet. Seems more like they're just releasing versions of these toys that were meant to come out but canceled before they could.

What we two are referring is the Movie Trilogy series, meant to be released after Dark of the Moon. Of the total line-up, only the Deluxe Prime with Trailer and Evac got released, the rest got canned. Here are images of the toys in question:





Compared with Movie Advanced series, Ratchet and Soundwave were barely altered, while Wheeljack will get the G1-accurate striping.

Wasn't Soundwave supposed to have a more G1 style head too?

Soundwave's head was already stylized from G1, besides Wheeljack's new head is the alternate head for the mold shown in Autobot Que's instructions. Look up "pretools" (pre-planned retools).

I know Wheeljack already had that head shown but I read that the Soundblaster repaint was going to get a head that was much closer to G1. Doesn't matter really as I'll be getting Soundblaster and Dino today.

Anyone else hoping against hope that one of the remaining "Movie Advanced" Autobots yet to be revealed is a deluxe Leadfoot with his proper Target and other sponsorship logos?
