    Little is known about Blackjack's past. He was discovered by the space pirates, The Star Seekers, when they responded to his small ship's distress call. Although Blackjack singlehandedly held off Thundertron's entire crew for a while, but the space pirates proved to much and eventually overwhelmed the solitary soldier.

    Rather than destroy Blackjack, Thundertron was impressed by his combat skills and asked him to join the crew to serve as scout, searching out new booty in his scout ship, the Sky Hammer.

    What Thundertron doesn't know is that this is Wheeljack, infiltrating the Star Seekers to destroy them from the inside. What Wheeljack didn't count on was being swayed by the charismatic Thundertron's philosophy. Is Wheeljack in too deep?

    This originally started as a Prime Cannonball, but after seeing Cheetimus Prime's http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/608935-capt-cannonball.html, I made some changes and developed him into an original character.

    He has an interchangeable hook hand (made from TFA Rachet), shotgun (TMNT Leatherhead), and trident (TFP Knockout), all of which had 5mm posts added if needed. Weapons can be stored in vehicle mode, but the hook hand must be removed.

    He is almost complete, just need some faction symbols, but I'm not sure if the Star Seekers have their own, or I should just use Decepticon.

    Thanks for looking, please let me know what you think. Click my signature for more WIP pics.

    The purple seems a little out of place to me, but I love the gold and black color scheme.

    Awesome! Love the sleek look of the vehicle mode. As always great story, too, it gives so much to the character.

    Thanks everyone for the great feedback. This was a commissioned piece, the customer came up with the idea, and I just tweaked it into an original character.

    Hmmm....so it is. Thanks guys!
