    1.) Are Wheeljack's wings very rare. I found two pairs on eBay, and one was being bid up to about $16. The other pair was from the parts seller dit_138, and his were a BIN of $45.

    2.) What's the status of TransRepro since they reopened? Has any one tryed ordering? I need those wings as part of a custom, so repros will do more than fine.

    The wings alone can be tough to find due to be easily lost in collections, which causes them to be expensive. Unfortunately, I do not recommend dit_138. Repros, I heard that they will try to open it again but the process will be very slow. I have not tried to order anything from them.

    In general, if a piece could pop off in G1, you're gonna pay through the ass to find one by itself.

    For a time there was a repro set of WJ wings on eBay, look for those. I think I paid $20 for mine. Well worth it.

    Haven't ordered from them yet, but I've been meaning to. They've got repro Wheeljack wings, spoilers, Headmaster, Shockwave battery covers. Try them.
