If you've been anxiously awaiting Masterpiece Wheeljack, or even just sort of looking forward to him, this gallery doesn't disappoint. Not only can you get a great look at both modes, but you also get a nice shot of of Wheeljack's hidden face.

Masterpiece Wheeljack comes with his blaster and shoulder launcher. Depending on where you pick up MP-20 Wheeljack, you may also receive the much-anticipated hypno-chip disruptor from “Ultimate Doom, Part 3.” He transforms into an officially licensed Lancia Stratos Turbo; a clean, precise vehicle mode that instantly calls to mind the custom racecar upon which it’s based.

So is Ryan buying in bulk these days for his eBay store?

Also... I wonder if we'll get a forehead accessory so you can reasonably display mustached Wheeljack without a hole in his head. But then again, Jackie always did have a screw loose :P

The screw in his lower abdomen, which can be seen through his front windshield, was driving me crazy! It looks like he has a belly button (and now you won't be able to unsee it either!). :P

It irked me that they didn't tint the windows darker or figure out some way to hide the screw. It was a glaring blemish and design flaw in an otherwise perfect figure. I decided to improvise by cutting out a white square from an extra sticker sheet from reprolabels to cover it up. The cut-out square wasn't perfect but it sure as heck looks a lot better than having the screw there.

All fixed!

I agree ... but I can't do comparison shots with every version of a character any more! At least not when I'm trying to get to 4,000 galleries or until things slow down with toy releases.

I am slowly buying in larger quantities the more and more comfortable I am getting with certain products and the speed with which certain products sell over others. This was the most I've ordered for a Masterpiece figure. The primary focus of the Seibertron.com Store will continue to be older products. Purchasing extras of new figures will also play a part in the store to assist with managing Seibertron.com's overhead and to increase the efficiency of the business.

There are 5 Masterpiece Wheeljacks left in our store! Products from the Seibertron.com Store ship super fast.

I was less concerned about that because Wheeljack won't ever need to be displayed like that. It was a bonus hidden easter egg feature so that feature doesn't need to be perfect. Sure it would have been nice had they figured out a way to do it so you could have either head displayed but it doesn't bother me since a week or so ago we had no idea that he had a bonus face.

The belly button screw, on the other hand :michaelbay:

Holy crap that is annoying! The piece of sticker seems to be an acceptable and low tech fix, though.

What annoys me more about the windows, less than the intensity of the tint, is that they're grey/black, like the toy, instead of blue like the cartoon. I can live with it though, because he looks magnificent.

Looks amazing. I can't wait to get mine in the mail! So in regards to the hidden face, do you have to remove a screw to see it? Or does the mask just pop out with a peg? If it's held on with a screw it makes complete sense why there's a hole. It's just a cool easter egg, after all.

The belly button screw, lol... I can't unsee now either, but it doesn't bug me so much. He's one of those crazy mad scientists whose shirt shrunk in the wash or something. I'm sure Doc Brown has had a couple wardrobe malfunctions from time to time. Mad scientists ain't got time for fashion!

As the mustachioed face under the "mask" may be perceived as a happy easter egg, i don't like it one bit. It irks me that it even exists as a gimmick. His "masked" face is his face. ALways has been till now?? I sure hope it doesn't become canon or anything in the future.
No sir, I don't like it one bit.
WIth that being said he's in the mail as we speak. Looking forward to getting him.

EDIT: well......there is a face in Animated i guess but there was still no mustache goin on.

When i saw pix of this guy I ended up collecting mp's again. Got sideswipe and smokescreen will end up getting mp10 too. woe be the wallet.

the face is a bit leftfield - i'd have rather they tried to implement a light up feature but hey...

wheeljack was my second tf ever, still have him in not very good condition - think he was also the first tf that I ended up losing parts to. His spoilers and his back antennae thingies... His robot mode was also a disappointment even for a 6 year old. His arms were too loose to stay up and fists couldn't hold a weapon. His missile launchers were bulky, and being a Gig italian import, it had the orange rubbered dumbbells as missiles. His car mode was as impressive and detailed as any other g1 though so he spent most of his time racing between battles.

That's why I'm always on the look out for new iterations of this character, have both prime and generations and they are both excellent figures, looking forward to adding the mp to my collection :D

If I could get a size comparison between Animated Rodimus and MP Wheeljack, that's be A+

It's the holiday season, and we here at Seibertron.com are gearing up for it. That's not to say we've forgotten you the people! As an early Christmas gift, Seibertron.com adds a big gallery for the little guys: it's the newly released Masterpiece MP-21 Bumblebee and Exo-Suit Daniel Witwicky! Thirty years after his debut, Bumblebee finally receives an officially-licensed, fully faithful update, and features a face-changing gimmick, including a neutral face, a smiling face, and, if you were lucky to have preordered from Amazon Japan, a battle mask that homages his original Generation One toy. Packed with Bumblebee is Daniel Witwicky in the futuristic Exo-Suit that was used prominently throughout the original 1986 animated film and the space opera that was Season Three-onward. Check out our preview images below, and if you would like to see the full galleries, click either the links or the images to be taken to them!
