    Has the 'Old Robot who shall be known as Wheeljack' discussion been had yet? I always arrive late to these parties, but here's a pic that you can either discuss or discard!

    He looks like a samurai to me. He even has a shoulder-strung weapon and what looks like a tool-belt.

    Discussed at length, and yeah, a bunch of us are really excited for Samurai Robot Einstein who turns into a Merc.

    while he may look somewhat like a samurai, he also looks like an old man ( at least his head) so.... i really dont think he is a samurai

    I'm honestly hoping Hasbro designs an alternate head that looks like the head in the Rising Storm comic books, for his inevitable Deluxe class mold. That way if they decide to repaint him in his G1 color scheme, they can use a more G1-styled head sculpt for him. That and I'm not a fan of the Einstein head design he's got for the movie itself.

    I'm not a fan of this design at all. I'll have to wait until I see it moving before I write it off completely. If his characterisation is strong enough he might win me over.

    If he is a cross between an old guy and a samurai I've got the perfect voice actor for him!

    When he applies his space bridge theory, minds are relatively blown. So take a face Prime, oop, I see you brought yer' own.

    ...

    I just had to refer to Einstein and his epic rap battle, didn't I? Dammit.

    WE NEED A STEVEN HAWKING TRANSFORMER. LIKE, NOW.

    "Hell with it... I'm gonna make this guy look like FUCKING EINSTEIN."
    ...
    I want that to happen now. That NEEDS to be a quote in the movie.

    I just don't get why Bay decided to go with a design that is just too reminiscent of two annoying characters who shall not be named *cough*Skids and Mudflap*cough* that were to be deleted from movie-verse history.

    At times it makes utterly no sense as to why they continue to make characters with distinct human like faces, while Sideswipe or Jolt look more robotic.

    Don't get me wrong, I love Wheeljack. He is one of my all-time favorite G1 characters along with Hound and Prowl (two others who should have made their proper movie debut). I greatly hope that Wheeljack will be featured in Dark of the Moon, along with Mirage. But why can't we make him look just a little bit like his G1 self in the face region?
