I can't decide if Quejack is the greatest or worst TF design of all time...

    On one hand, he's robot Einstein, and that's fucking amazing.

    On the other hand, he's robot Einstein, whose freaky faux human face is so deeply entrenched in the uncanny valley that his visage haunts those who haven't even seen him yet.

    You're wrong on both accounts,sir. He's Dr. Wheeljack Brown therefore he is awesome

    i'm alright with almost everything but his face. the hair resembling wheeljack's traditional "earlights" is nice, but i would have much rather had a mouthplate.

    I thought he looked atrocious. I really hated his top row of gold "teeth" and his frizzy blue "hair". His design was easily the worst. But, I still liked him. It was very sad to see him go; the Decepticons are merciless. However, I wonder why he didn't fight back.

    He's an inventor,not a soldier. He'd rather negotiate than fight.

    He's probably my least favorite movieverse design. His face was way too human looking for my taste.

    Completely agree with you, I would like him to have more than 4 or 5 appearances in a 2 hour and 45 minute movie as well.

    Keep telling yourselves, guys. He's Wheeljack in everything except the film itself, which was exclusively director's call, and even then was still credited as Wheeljack. As far as Hasbro's concerned, that was Wheeljack for all intents & purposes and he's not getting a do-over. He's Wheeljack, get over it.

    Futile effort? Yes. You are actually right. My post was pretty just wishful thinking though on my behalf. Jackie's my favourite character and I wanted more of him in the movie. Although, all will be forgiven if Hasbro release a Human Alliance figure of him :ev:

    Agreed on both counts, but I did feel the time he did have was utilized well.

    Since Hasbro had no problems developing a Soundwave HA, I have no doubts we'll see HA Jackie later :thumb

    Absolutely hated his face with the hair and mustache. The rest of him was fine but I don't know what the f*ck they thinking when they decided on that head design.

    To the people saying hes not wheeljack, stop now. He was credited as "Wheeljack/Que" Hes both.

    I'd rather they had made his full name WheeljaQ though so calling him Q would be like the autobots using a nickname for him. And I liked his Albert Einstein face. I find it slightly hypocritical about how people complained about how alien the autobots looked in the first movie and now that theres an autobot that has a human looking face people are still shitting themselves. You really can't win over fans I guess.

    Im just dissapointed that they used such a weird design for such a popular loved character. Wheeljack looks nothing like that, why associate such a well-known autobot with an ugly human-like face? It would of been like giving Shockwave 2 eyes...
