    I'm assuming this means we'll get a G1 redeco at some point.

    Hey, he looks pretty good! I especially like his spear.

    Ask for the new head...I have no idea who that could pass for.

    Man his transformation is pretty origami. I like.

    New head looks cool, I guess. Obviously G1-inspired. Maybe it's because Generations Wheeljack is still so recent it just feels... superfl...surpurflu... kinda pointless.

    I really like the look of his transformation; but who the retool could be completely alludes me. I may have to pick up the retool as well :)

    Considering i really dont like how the headsculpt looks on the original, i'm passing on this toy. The transformation does look interesting though. I have no idea who the retool could be, but if the head is better, i'll get the mold with that head.

    Looks good. If the new head is a G1 homage, I may have to buy both. Name the original Que and the redeco Wheeljack!

    Have we seen a good quality pic of the regular head yet? Or was it just the grainy one from the last convention?

    Yeah that new head looks like a very stylized movie version of G1 Wheeljack. I'm guessing Hasbro will name the redeco Downshift.

    So he has a spear, a little pistol, a mechtech saw and some sort of welding tool looking thing?
    Thats pretty neat, depending on the deco of the final toy I might have to grab this guy.

    Could he hold Generations Wheeljack's wrenches? It's looking like he could.

    We must be getting closer the release date!

    I'm assuming that many of you are going to buy the Wheljack with that head instead of the movie head.

    Either way I would get both.

    I'm gonna have to agree; i think it is a movie styled g1 wheeljack head; if so he will be my pre-earth wheeljack :)
