The untappered thicker knees and thighs on the line art looks better than the prototype. That's the only thing that I can nit-pick at.

I'm starting to really hate those hands, nowhere in g1 does Jack have hands that look like that. these are more of a classics updated interpretation of his hand guards/shield

I like where the wheels go on his back and hide away, very cool.

If anything it's more an updated interpretation of his G1 toy with the guards/shields shifting from behind to the sides.

And is most likely a necessary compromise so the hands are covered in alt mode. If that and the 'thin' thighs are the only compromises, then there really isn't anything much to complain about considering the liberties taken by the G1 animators >:oP

But like the toy they should be at the bottom, or at at least they should not be angled and come to a sharp point. There is also this raised circle detailing on the hand guards that really take away from the g1 look.

I really like how they still sketch these designs out by hand rather than relying purely on CAD and CG. You can really see how the transformations are thought out.

Following up his earlier comparison tweet of MP-20 Wheeljack with MP-12 Sideswipe, MP-18 Bluestreak, and MP-Smokescreen, Takara Tomy designer Shogo Hasui has revealed the group in robot mode. However, MP-17 Prowl has replaced MP-Smokescreen for this shot. Check em out below!

man.. this is going to be way way WAY too long of a wait.

he looks almost perfect.. as usual.

i really hope we see teasers or prototypes of bumblebee and magnus soon.

i am surprised that he didn't flatten out prowl's feet.. they're very articulated and would've easily been able to sit flush on the ground.. not to mention i don't see his heal flipped out.. odd for someone who designed it to overlook that.

Same. I assume we'll see some 'Bee test shots in month or so.

Looks great, now where are pics of this so-called Masterpiece Ultra Magnus we've been hearing about?

Takara Tomy designer Shogo Hasui continues to tweet new images of the Transformers Masterpiece MP-20 Wheeljack prototype, this evening we get a little closer look at shoulder mounted weapon. His Magnetic Inducer Shell can at very least be removed from the launcher, possibly fired. Image mirrored below.

Torture! I can't wait to see colored pics! Btw, I have a bad feeling that this will not make the end of August release.

Given the size difference between him and MP Frenzy, reenacting his famous use of this weapon in Marvel US#9 will seem kind of mean. But if it actually fires, that's what's happening as soon as he's out of the box.
