    Originally when I saw the contest I spent a few hours looking for a neat alt mode vehicle to consider and a bot to pay homage to. I was almost going to go with a few other designs (hound, clifjumper, or skywarp).

    Eventually I found this neat little Audi "O" concept car and the back end and unique style of it just looked like it would make for a cool stylized chestplate.

    The question was who would this white car be?
    and after some searching and brainstorming I cam across the pic from the first TF episode of Wheeljack in his cybertron mode and knew it should be him.

    After about the third day of working on this i saw the excelent work of member DOWNSHIFT-1307 here: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/design-transformer-contest/244982-movie-wheeljack.html
    I considered changing him to another character, but couldn't find another appropriate bot to fit the style, so I just went with it.

    So, here is my entry for the contest.

    I think this is one of my favourite designs yet to be honest. It's a very clever tie-in to the G1's pre-Earth form, and the design is quite different while still feeling like Wheeljack. That is how you know that you did a great redesign, well done! :thumb  If I can suggest one thing though then it's too change the arms; their positions look a bit goofy now and makes them look short as well.

    That Audi vehicle mode reminds me of a Volvo C30.

    As a fan of both Audi and Wheeljack, I really like this one. I really love how you integrated the vehicles taillights. Would they happen to flash when he speaks?
