    Thank you Radicons for the inspiration on this custom. This is my version of Classics Wheeljack. It's from the Classics Sideswipe mold, the windshield has been modded to resemble the round windshield of Wheeljack. The front skirt and spoilers were added using styrene sheets. And I customed my own waterslide decals for this custom. I hope you guys like it. Comments and critics are welcome and appreciated.

    That rounded windshield makes a world of difference. Looks great! Where's the shoulder cannon from?

    I've seen a fair share of Wheeljack customs from this mold over the last 6 months or so, but I like this best. I really dig the mods to the front end (very similar to another member's WJ custom), but the thing that makes this THE Wheeljack, is the modded roof/windshield. It really stands out and makes this custom great (especially in bot mode). It looks great in alt mode, but the only thing I don't care much for is the way it kinda sticks up in the middle of the car (the top section of the chest/windhield area). When viewing the alt mode from the rear, the chest/windshield/roof stands up a little high, BUT from all other angles it looks perfect and in bot mode, it's awesome. Overall, it works great and looks amazing, man.

    Hands down the best Wheeljack custom I've seen.

    The Swipe-Jacks have been kind of a pet-peeve of mine, I never though the lambo-look really worked for WJ, but you've fixed that in spades!

    The rounded windshield is what makes this Wheeljack. I am in awe in that you managed to make that from the Sideswipe toy. The custom decals are also pure win.


    Classics Jetfire Backpack "flip-out" cannon tip, just cut off a bit down from the tip.

    Eight shades of Pure Awesome! If that was hanging on a peg at Wal-Mart, it would be bought in a heartbeat. You really did a fantastic job!

    So freaking awesome! The head's a little rough, but this is still, hands-down, the best transformable representation of Wheeljack I've ever seen. It's like the illustration on the G1 packaging brought to life! (With a few tweaks, of course.)
