In a fun bit of Friday trivia for all of you Seibertronians out there, we learned this morning that the just-released Masterpiece MP-20 Wheeljack has a secret behind his face shield. Thanks to Weibo user ZEUX1S, we get to see that Wheeljack has an actual face behind his mask. Those clever designers at Takara are definitely having fun with the Masterpiece line. Check out the pictures below.

Um... Well, that's unexpected. Especially the mustache.

Just like MP-1 Convoy. Cool!

Now I'm curious are MP-13 Soundwave, if there's anything behind his mouthplate. :-?

Yikes!

Glad this was never a part of the cartoon, where Wheeljack's familiar and likeable face was his "actual" face.

Kind of reminds me of the guy that the Robo-Smasher subverted in The Secret of Omega Supreme.

The face under the mask looks like Animated Wheeljack.

Clever...

I can just see the G1 voice coming out of that face. Maybe the goatee does it?

MIND BLOWN. That is awesome! Too bad you gotta take his head apart to see it. But cool nonetheless. I also wonder about Soundwave now... Man, Takara is really doing wonders with MPs these days. :D

It's cool to see how much Takara has been stepping it up. The MP line is going strong!

Now how about some more G1 Decepticons?

Wheeljack have a glorious mustache! :APPLAUSE:

Some may whine, but I love that new trope that every transformers have a face, covered by a mask or not. This make them more alive.

I wonder... what face would be behind THIS mask?

Now Wheeljack joins Optimus in the "Secretly had a mouth but we never knew about it until later" club.

I like it a lot but I don't need to see a face behind every face plate.
