That head sculpt is to die for. The bot mode looks OK, but I think it will improve with color.

I feel like there's something about this one that takes it a good notch or 2 down from MP-10 through 19... I'm not quite sure what though. :-?

I hope that split in the roof is due to mirror casting for the prototype and the final mold is one piece. Also, am I the only one that feels that the shoulder rocket is a little to, um, phallic? Or is it a tampon launcher now? Either, way it doesn't look right/appropriate.

Looks pretty sweet. I love the head sculpt but i'm really excited for that car mode and some colour photos.

I hope for a pristine Takara paint job on this release. A real primo spare no expense type of paint job.

Wheeljack has my favourite alt mode of all the car formers......ever.

I looked really, really hard and I don't see it... Just looks like a rocket launcher to me? :-?

I think once the painted design is on the roof, the split will be less noticeable.

I would like them to simplify his hand guards to be more like the g1 toy and also g1 animation.

I hope the wings are the clear smokey gray just like the G1 toy!!!!!!

Shoulder cannon is g1 accurate...so its all good!

Or the remaining four MP Dinobots, either would be fine I guess.


lol. I'll take the latter please.


Might I suggest something a tad more attainable which would also provide enhanced MP interaction and display possibilities: the reformatted brain module he developed for Grimlock?

Car mode is pure sex, coz the lancia stratos all beefed up just is.

Robot mode is okay. Couple things right, couple things eh... like those thighs being super thin. I'll take the Generations robot mode over this, even if it ain't as G1.

So nice. I do agree his thighs are looking a little skinny, and somehow he could use a bit more detail, but otherwise... so good. I can't wait! :D

Wheeljack was the 2nd ever tf I owned. It was an Italian GIG diaclone import with the big orange dumbbells. I think I was quite disappointed with his robot mode and he definitely was kept in his car form most of the time. I remember also losing the things on his back and in play, I'd imagine the side thingies on his head light up as he explained his latest crazy contraption to prime.

i said to myself that i will stop buying masterpieces - in fact I haven't since they introduced mp10 prime and skipped rodimus too. I wasn't too enthused with sideswipe etc... but somehow I just ordered smokescreen and well this wheeljack will probably join him as will soundwave and ultra magnus :(

Pre-ordered from HLJ! I have good experience with them.

But Anime Export is even $8 cheaper. Has anyone ever tried them?

Wow!!! Sure, there are a few minor things...(thighs a bit thin and rocket is a bit too fat at the tip. Don't remember any "knuckle guards" on the hand covers either) but...I DONT CARE. This is freakin awesome lookin!!! Can't wait to see it painted!!! The screw beneath the windshield will doubtlessly be painted and far less visible when finished.

The Amazon extra IS a bit tiny, but it comes from the early, classic Ultimate Doom serial...so I think it's fine....unless of course Slag, Sludge, Swoop and Snarl ARE an option!! =D. The Negavator or the Immobilizer would have been cooler lookin no doubt. Or Maybe a Teletran 1 console.

I love the way the wheels hide in the legs and the body. Transformation seems simple enough. I like.

This is yet another home run for the Masterpiece line. It makes me even sadder that the current designer has left and we are getting the original designer back.
