    robot mode:Ok don't get me wrong but his robot mode is kinda cool but the arms can't hold up much it comes with a sorwd and a gun it's a repaint of alt grimlock i don't like how the seats are his legs though he isn't relly that g1 style overall robot mode score:8.9

    transformation:This is probely the most hardest alt to transform lot's of pieces seem to fall off when you transform him.it's very hard but Meh...you get the hang of it but i always leave him in robot mode so the transformation is probely hard

    veicle mode
    the veicle mode is kinda neat but would it hurt to change the coulors the gun becomes the engine and stuff.it's a ford car i think with a pony on it lol.it is highly detailed so overall veicle score is a 7.8

    overall
    this figure is good but wheeljack is no were good as alt grimlock this is a figure worth buying though overall scor 8.9

    THANKS TO SEIBERTRON.COM AND HASBRO!

    Cool review, but, umm...........I'm not trying to sound mean when I say this, but, there should already be a thread about him (seeing that he has been out for a good long time now). The search tool is your friend here.

    Edit: Nevermind. I just searched it myself and I couldn't find a pre-existing thread.

    This is one of the three Alternators I don't have that I need to complete the line. The other two being Mirage and Swerve (and he's just about costly enough that I may never be able to make myself bite the bullet and buy him).

    Good review but one thing.

    That pic you said you took is just the headshot from Siebertron.com's gallery with the site name taken out and the border trimmed, it has the same lighting and tiny little paint smudge, and the reflection is the same.

    There's nothing wrong with using someone else's photo, just don't claim it's yours when it's obviously not.

    I didn't want to make him feel bad. I just wanted to tell him stealing other site's photos is bad.

    Linking them or crediting them is fine since your not claiming they're yours.

    The intreasting thin about this figure is that it makes wheeljack look more stonger than the g1 version.

    Not all that surprising. He's riding about in a body initially designed for Grimlock after all.

    ya forgot ta bumb ya idiot! i had to go back 6 whole pages :grumbles:
    car- i cannopt get the back and front to line up properly, his hood cannot open without unlocking thetab that folds away for bot mode.
    tf- this is simple, but a pain and frankly, the grade of plastic barely passes the required strength level.
    bot- in theory it is good, but in practice not o. the doors still pop off ands the chest still goes out of alignment, the legs are blah and generally not very good.
    overall, i would not recommend him- c

    well, i managed to find out why the car mode was off and rectify this, but it is still rather middle of the line

    Ahh! Zombie thread! The Mustang mold is still my favorite Alternator. I find it the second easiest one to Transform, right after the Viper mold. Looks great in both modes, too.

    BRRAAAAINS!!

    I'm a big fan of Wheeljack too. While it's missing some paint on his face, in alt mode it looks identical to the BT version. The white plastic and white paint are very well matched.

    I transformed BT Grimlock last night in the dark, while drunk (Power outage. Whee). He's not THAT difficult ;P

    Compared to the Subaru mold, the Mustang mold is a dream since everything actually locks into an obvious place and doesn't require the horrific amount of part massaging to get everything together.
