    hi guys,
    ROTF WHEELJACK

    He is made from a ROTF lockdown with all the spikes shaved off. I also replace his hands with fists which looks way better then his hook. I also added a few racing elements in his car mode. Lastly he is painted in G1 colors and is fully detailed. also wheeljack been helping me with a project haha, thanks wheeljack!!!

    check him out on ebay now!

    I like the design, but the head looks a little off. I think it's the neck, very skinny. But that's just me. Rock solid paint job!! Shoulder cannon is pure WIN!!

    Perfect! What fists did you use and did you replace both hands? Kind of hard to see.

    Brilliant... this worked really well. Good call.

    Though I must ask... got any brighter pics? I find with the black background, a lot of the detail on this figure is lost. I'd love a closer, clearer look at what you've done here.

    You're not keeping this? That's a shame cos the vision & mods that have gone into Wheeljack are damn nice! :)  That is one kick-ass movie-verse custom! :thumb

    looks really nice, though I do think the face needs to be thinner and possibly a little longer.

    It looks awesome... except for that neck. That neck just makes his head look really out of place.

    I think a little more angle on his headlight area may be good, lighten the bot bits/background, and maybe a bit of a stripe extension to the foot/hood bits, but it's quite good! I thought the lockdown design would be a good movie wheeljack if "pacified" (spikes toned down and bot mode less scary. :p )

    Nice!
