    I have been notified that the KO Wheeljack is finally done and will be shipping with the Cyclonus and Scourge. No word as to why the huge delay in getting this figure out that was promised to be released last Oct but it is now finished.

    I have been told that there are still 4 or 5 people out there who are carrying these figures as A3U will NOT be getting in any more of the replica KO figures, complying with Hasbro's request for us to not carry them.

    I have been told of a Diaclone Marlboro Wheeljack is also in the works. This is just a rumour currently but if completed should have the different head, red and white paint and all the original Marlboro decals on it.

    Spencer.

    Yes, Wheeljack is circulating.

    I haven't seen any Sunstreakers yet, though.

    With Trailbreaker recently announced as the next Encore release, him, plus KO Mirage, KO Wheeljack, and KO Sunstreaker (if it ever releases) will finish my 18-car G1 Autobot Car MISB Collection!

    Woohoo!

    (Now if only they'd get to Ramjet/Dirge/Thrust)...

    Not to mention the leftover minibots. I'm surprised Encore #10 (#11?) was all the 'copy' minis (Swerve, Tailgate, Outback) instead of the 'cores' Windcharger, Brawn, Cliffjumper, Seaspray, and Beachcomber - the last minis yet to see re-release.

    Ah well, I'm patient. Metroplex and the Thundercracker/Skywarp 2-pack was great. Hoping for Trypticon, Scorponok, and the combiner giftsets next :)
