    I know that some people don't like the look of the Einstein Autobot. Maybe the toy won't sell, even if he is called Wheeljack. So like Jetfire he has a beard, but in the toy line his face does not look like he has a beard, mostly looks like he has a face plate. So my theory is that the Einstein bot's mustash will make him look like a face plate like Darth Vader's.

    But no matter what would you still get the toy if it come out or if it's called Wheeljack?

    To the question: Of course he's going to have a toy. And I don't know if I'm buying him yet, I've only seen his frakin' head.

    To the rest of your post: What?

    I just heard that no one liked his face, but they might make him cool looking instead of old Albert Einstein.

    I thought if they made him because the second movie they didn't make all the transformers. They left out a few Constructicons, the Kitchen bot, they didn't make a new Elita-1 (just F_ing repaint), and the Cybertronian decepticon drones. Not to mention the Mountain Dew machine bot in the first movie.

    Oh, well... if they left out the Mountain Dew bot then I can see where you're coming from.

    There is at least a 50/50 chance I'll buy him. odds may change once we see the rest of him.

    Sometimes I think hard on what the car looks like in robot mode that my head explodes.

    Eh, depends on the body? I buy a toy if it looks good and has a satisfying transformation.

    I voted no, but I probably won't be buying any of the on-screen movie toys save Shockwave potentially.

    Well, his head alone has ruined Transformers, possibly forever, but I'd probably buy a figure of the character.

    You have done an excellent job summing up much of Transformer fandom in one sentence. :) 



    I vote "maybe?"

    Yep. I like the car and I might like the character. That one head cutout image is not enough for me to judge the character fully on.

    I'm more wondering how they're going to do his old man hair in toy form.

    I donno. He's honestly the very first movie design I'm not so hot about. I'll say yes, just cause his toy may still end up being pretty cool. and who knows, the character may turn out awesome...Maybe.

    I thought the exact same thing just before I thought about how ignorant the comment was. Of course he could just be kidding.

    An easy pass for me even if he was on clearance.

    The hybrid figures, some of the off screen characters that seem a bit closer to more traditional designs, maybe even Shockwave depending on what the rest of him looks like. The on-screen characters though just don't interest me, either I don't like the look or the personality turns me against the character.

    Maybe his Stealth Force toy if they make one. The combination of Transformers and MASK is just pretty cool and I don't have to worry about the problem of liking the car but not liking the robot mode.

    He's referring to the "Transformers is ruined FOREVER" meme.

    In other news, I'm going with what Brainchild said, with the addition of "and can pose well".
