    Is Wheeljack on Hasbro's short list of characters that they would like to see updated for the Classics toy-line? It would make sense for Hasbro to end up making one as he was the first Transformer to be seen in the first episode of the original cartoon.

    I did do a forum search looking to see if this question had been asked, but most of the results that came up were custom Classics Wheeljack threads. :lol 

    Cheers.

    I use Cybertron Downshift as a stand-in. Energon does a good job too.

    I posted a picture in the Universe discussion thread, but I'd love it if Hasbro used the Fenomenon Stratos as the vehicle base model since G1 Wheeljack was a previous Stratos model.

    I would be highly disappointed if this weren't so. Especially when Hot Rod remained the Dome Zero for this line.

    At either SDCC or Botcon Hasbro representatives said It's "Too early" to talk about Classics Wheeljack. That indicates they're getting to it.

    We might have to wait until after the 2009 movie line, but suspect we'll get him, Jazz, Red Alert, Trailbreaker, and others in Classics. It's what the line is FOR, after all.

    With any luck after the movie will be long enough to do Universe Blitzwing to round off the Decepticon triple changers. That and Trailbreaker would complete my Classics shelf by themselves.

    If Hasbro makes a legends of Wheeljack only, I'll be happy. I'd prefer a deluxe more, though. Heck, a simple re-release of Energon Downshift would be good enough for me.

    I'm fairly confident there will be a new deluxe Wheeljack mold. We may just have to be patient though.

    I'm hoping for it, and praying that it's just a little more Wheeljackian than the Downshift figures were. More G1ish ears, wings, shoulder missiles, that sort of thing.

    I think it's highly probable we'll see him when Universe returns.

    For those who can't wait, you can always custom an existing mold :D

    I hope they come out with a Red Alert repaint of the Sunstreaker mold. I think that's a great mold.

    I suspect that a wheeljack will come out in the 5th or 6th wave in universe. if it doesn't happen by then it probobly won't happen.

    We already know what waves 5 and 6 are and he's not in them. He'll be along eventually, we'll just have to wait until after the movie.

    sorry people I think Universe Wheeljack is obvious going to be an armada repaint of Sideswipe.
    Okay I'm just kidding, but think about that.

    Yeah, Ratchet will be in Wave 5 or 6.... As For Wheeljack, does Hasbro have the name trademark again? Isn't that partly why there hasn't been any Wheeljacks of late?

    Forget the 'Bots. Where are the 'Cons? Shockwave, Soundwave, Stunticons, Insecticons, and the list doesn't stop there.

    Bot's have gotten too much treatment IMO, lol
