    £7.39 for him, I picked him up because I have always wanted a Wheeljack toy. Though admittedly he reminded me why I only ever bought one Alternator toy and never bought them again. Hope you like your robot mode Wheeljack because you're NEVER going back into car mode.

    I'm completely unfamiliar with international packaging. Quick question, does Wheeljack have a red box or fishbow packaging?

    That's one heck of a price you got too.

    Red G1 style box.

    Yeah, for that price I feel it was worth it to get a Whjeeljack toy, but anything over that would have felt like too much (was like that with my Dead End toy who I paid £15 for). I mean Jesus, I can imagine Wheeljack trying to "roll out" in this.

    "Right so, I twist my arms in like so, and swivel...damnit my doors come off. OK start again, swivel then slide the arms in there and...there goes my hand. You know what, screw this I'm walking."

    £7.69 is a sweet deal especially for the red box which is what I was given this morning when I picked mine up, this is my 2nd wheeljack, I smashed the first one to smithereens after it refused to go back into car mode, an ultimately satifying but somewhat expensive temper tantrum.

    Well, at least you didn't pay much for one of the worst figures in the Alt line. I think Wheeljack is a terrible figure, personally. The colors look terrible in vehicle mode, his head sculpt is really subpar, and those fricking doors pop off every time I try to transform him. It's weird, because Grimlock is one of my favorite Alts, but this remold just all out sucks.
