    I swear I had this done before Jin's Hot Rod! :D  I just did not get a chance to post until today. Anyway, I had a headless classic Bumblebee, and a bodyless Cyberton Downshift.... and I thought the two made a good match. I went with something different making him black and red. Let me know what people think!

    Thanks for looking:

    This is awesome. It's got that Knight Rider KITT feel to it. Awesome work.

    Wheeljack is my favorite Transformers character, and your custom is really awesome and really well-done, but I was expecting to see more white, green, and red. :(

    I would probably add one more stripe on the hood to carry over to bot mode, 'cause as it is, the bot mode chest is pretty plain.

    It's a cross between KITT and the Smokey adn the Bandit car. Nice job. Only thing is that the head seems to big.

    Ditto... I really want to like this custom, but somehow it just doesn't work for me. Perhaps because in my world he's white 'n green. I really like the looks in car mode though.

    I understand.... and MAY have another one in the works.....

    But I wanted to go with something different......

    Does the Ironhide in the movie look like G1 ironhide? Does Ratchet? Does Starscream?

    I was keeping in that tradition.... for this one!

    The best thing about this custom is how well the Wheeljack style face fits with the movie TF's.

    This is very cool.

    The car mode looks nice. The black paint looks a bit uneven and bubbly in spots though. Perhaps its the just pictures, but given your excellent work on both of your Brawls, I expected a more even paint job. What kind of paint did you use?

    The head makes it look like a completely different toy, which is cool, but it's just not Wheeljack to me.

    Thats cool,but for the love of god do not call him KITT.

    Everyone,KITT was a 1982 Trans-Am not a Camaro.In later seasons they changed him to a Firebird,but its the same body style as a Trans-Am so it didn't matter.

    But again,thats an awesome custom dude.Thats what my fan character Overhaul would look like if he was in the movie.That's cool dude.
