    It what may be the least amount of work I've invested into a figure, he is Transformers Prime RID Wheeljack in all his awesome glory.

    Vehicle Mode:

    Nothing has changed so far concerning the vehicle mode seeing as there was no reason to alter it. It's as perfect as it is (at least in my opinion).

    Robot Mode:

    It just started raining outside so I decided to take some pics inside.

    Now here is where the figure really shines. Even without the minor touch ups to detail this is still a fantastic figure regardless if whether aesthetic you're more preferable to.

    I've had this guy on my bench for a week and I haven't been able to figure out what to do with him. I like your approach; he really doesn't need much at all.

    I've just noticed that this is probably the best figure to get if you're just starting to get into customizing.

    wheeljack is missing something.

    I like what you did to the swords. i mite do the same thing when i git my own wheeljack. but there is one thing missing. you for got to put a autobot simbal on his chest. it will make his realy realistic to the tv show.

    I've been wanting to give him a pearlescent white paint job but I am digging your subtle touch ups :cool:

    Prime RID Wheeljack is one of the few figures where he's practically perfect regardless of any applied paint apps. Heck the mold itself just oozes character and its not often (though has been more frequent in the last few years) do we get figures that come with swords. That I can appreciate.

    Looks good! I'm planning on doing a repaint of him myself, and I'm wondering, are there any rub issues with the paint on his swords?

    Yes there is unfortunately. Then again I did use red enamel so that may be the culprit right there.
