    Looks cool, and i would be interested in it, but i would first have to be told what material it would be cast in. The swivel that connects the windscreen to the torso is a high stress area, in fact that mold has many paint issues associated with it in my experince, so unless i can be sure what it is, i can't make a purchase, as much as the set does look awesome.

    And, the weaponry really is lacking, though that could just be me. I like my bots laden with firepower, or blades, as the case may be.

    Heheh Yeah I can understand that.
    I'd be interested in knowing the material it's planning to be cast in also.

    The seller also just added pics of the prototype botmode.. looks pretty decent.

    Hey, looking at it again, the connection ports for the roof mounted engine are gone! But then where and how do the wings attach in bot mode, since it's quite obvious (as some others have done), the engine is the cetral piece that holds them to the main body, and acts as a hinge to postion the wings in bot mode.

    EDIT: Nevermind. I just solved my own question. I forgot the ports that are hidden by the windscreen in car mode. Dammit.

    EDIT 2: More importantly, what about robot mode articulation? The hood of the car stoips just, and i mean just short of the waist swivel. If the new piece for the front end of the car sticks out further, it's gonna block that joint, resulting in a Wheeljack that is almost as bricky as, well, G1. (Slight exaggeration, but you get the idea)

    I'm sure YR will do it justice.

    Mind you I JUST spent a tidy sum on a custom WJ that I'm quite happy with, so I'm probably not going to be in the market in any event :)

    AS you've seen on the other threads..
    I do indeed intend to buy it because I think it makes a nice looking Lambo-lancia look.

    Just needs a little work.

    But that' fine with me!

    I'm not even really a fan of the Lambo-Wheeljack customs I've seen on here as it is. Not that they're bad works or anything, I just like my Wheeljack to be more akin to a Lancia Stratos than a Gallardo.

    Accurate alt-modes are fairly high on my scale of importance. I'm repeating myself, but I'd LOVE to see HasTak make a Wheeljack based on the Fenomenon Stratos, a Lancia concept.
