    I wasn't 100% happy with Wheelie (previous version) for this project because of his size and purpose in the combiner bio, so tackled this early Sunday morning. This HEADMASTER version was built using parts from Bakugans, Vector Prime's Safeguard, PerfectEffect Shadow warrior, and a classic's Legends Wheelie (thanks aprim)

    To transform him into Extinction's head, the waist & legs rotate 180 degrees and fold, the arms fold in, then flip him around (face on back)

    Looking at the 2, side-by-side, the original's orange was way too pink on the hue. Went with a straight orange, highlighted in yellow this round.

    Im not usually big into criticism, but this one is much better - the size, color, and head all make this an unmistakeable wheelie. good work.

    I like the edging technique. Really brings out the cartoon look!

    The inside knee on the right leg is still a little rough looking, and I don't really dig the grooves on the windshield, but this is by far a huge improvement over Wheelie Mk. I.

    you're making me wanna revisit this guy again. I understand why so many dislike Wheelie now...I have nightmares with his voice in them lately. I feel the same about the grooves in the windshield, and will probably fill them in tonight now...

    As horrible as the experience was, I went and researched Wheelie before I posted that just to make sure I wasn't missing something in some reference art somewhere with those grooves. I didn't mean to make you feel bad, just providing some honest criticism.

    I have to say, I'm curious to see how a mainly gold/chrome/silver Dinobot group will look merged with an orange head... :D
