    Hey guys here's my review of dark of the moon wheeljack/que. he's a pretty neat figure all in all, to begin with I will start with the alt mode;

    Side view
    In general his alt mode is sleek and bang on movie accurate! The mold itself has obliviously had alot of time and effort put into allowing the alt mode to transform and create his bot mode. Let downs with bot mode are no number plate, the mech tech gun looks out of shape when attached and his lance has no were to go when wj is in alt mode!!!!! The color and paint apps make this car brilliant in my eyes.
    Robot mode;

    Lance and weapons
    Bot mode is in my eyes not a let down and a great showing of hasbros engineering team. This deluxe is not at all simple in transformation which compared to some of the dotm deluxes. His head does have slight translucent plastic. His head is on a ball joint and is hid away in side his chest......do if you wanna recreate the execution scene you can :) ))
    In general he's a really neat figure well worth killing myself to get lol am looking forward to the g1 as are many others but I do say get both!!!! Because next to one another these wheeljacks/ques look superb and are fun!!!!

    I can never bring myself to buy this...that head is just soo bad... the only hope this gives me is that they plan on using the real wheeljack in part 4..

    Looks fantastic.

    The TFmation looks VERY fun. One thing that sticks right out to me are those tires. They look really cool to me for some reason,

    This is a kick ass fig so far..

    There are times when I see a review for a figure and it cements my 'need' to aquire it.
    This is not one of those times.
    Although the review and pictures are really good and well presented, the figure itself doesn't seem special at all. It may have some good engineering, but so do so many other more aesthetically pleasing ones.
    The body looks fiddly, and the overall appearance is somewhat lack luster.
    The saving grace is the alt mode, but there again it's kind of boring.

    Great review dude!:thumb  I'm going to buy this when this comes out! It does look nice and movie-accurate!:)  This mold might make a good Rattrap retool/remold seeing how almost rat-like Que's poportions are! Just give it Rattraps head,give it a different color scheame that matche's Rattrap's and it's all set!

    I usually don't get excited about Autobots or automobiles (especially in a line that has given us plenty of both), but this guy's piquing my interests. Awesome alt mode, limited kibble, and lots of weapons. Doesn't hurt that I like the kooky/ugly/bizarre.

    I like how his MechTech weapon looks like he'd place it down, hit a button, and run away while it does something on it's own.
    Is there only one of the smaller clip-on gun? I though he had two of those.

    He's got a lot of odd splashes of color in bot mode, much like Breakaway (the same colors, too, it looks like).

    So, I guess a review thread is for positive thoughts only?

    Sure, the news thread has a lot of haters, but many with valid points. As I said above, I don't like the figure, and I think I made my reasons clear rather than just "UGLY HEAD IS UGLEE!".

    No, a review thread is for feedback. On the figure.You can have negative opinions on a figure, and of course that includes the sculpt and overall design.

    But parts of the news thread were derailing into "THIS ISN'T WHEELJACK MY HEADCANON WON'T ALLOW IT" or that it was an insult to the name wheeljack, etc. For good or worse, this guy is wheeljack to Hasbro so tough luck on that. I was amazed that this argument came up again after three movies but apparently that meant I was a geewuner hater or something (when in fact I love G1 as well as most incarnations). But nevermind, I don't intend to bring that awful argument here again. It belongs in the horrible movie subforum shitfests.

    Not putting words in Anguirus' mouth, but I think that's what he meant, not that you can't criticize the figure itself here.
