    Anyone think its possible we will see a transformers prime makeshift character?
    He could maybe have hands and ports on him to where he can use other figures weapons? I think there some cool possibilitys with making him a figure

    Well it would be nice but does anyone know what he actually looks like before he assumed wheeljacks form?

    That said your idea is a good one and I'd buy it for the novelty value

    Wouldn't it sort-of be like the 2007 movie BB and OP toys that were basically skeletons you plugged shell-former bits into?

    I think those sank without a trace. Much as I'd like a Makeshift and can appreciate there may have been some advances in Hasbro's tech in five years, I wouldn't hold out great hope for such a thing.

    That's because they were Japan exclusives and were rare.

    I wanted those so bad...

    I think we'll get a Wheeljack repaint and possibly an original mold if he ever shows up again in an original form.

    Simple - buy a Wheeljack and a Vehicon figure (when available). To switch between modes, simply yell "HEY LOOK OVER THERE!" and swap the toys while gazes are averted.

    If we could get a quadruple changer Longarm Prime/ Shockwave for Animated we can get a form changing Makeshift for Prime.

    Hasbro has a team of Wizards creating this shit for them and its allllll magic.

    He looks like Starscream with Megatrons head and a bunch of spikes added to the body. I doubt they have a real and unique render for him so far....if they do, that is not it lol

    Basically I just want a figure for every character that has a role in the show and I have feeling they could leave makeshift out I hope not tho

    I hear you on that. I hate when there is a show character and they do not make a toy of said character. I'm still waiting for G1 Arcee and Botanica lol

    Second Wheeljack is cool with me. Epic Swordfight doppelganger display to make the point clear.

    Its really Wheeljacks introduction episode though. Doubt we will see makeshift again do to the grenade. He was intentionally expendable for the writers it seems. So don't loose sleep over it. There will be plenty of prime figures to pick up, especially for the decepticons.

    voyagers: Megatron, Starscream, Skyquake, Dreadwing, and Breakdown
    Deluxes: Vehicon, Knockout, Airachnid, and Soundwave

    Personally I'd like to see something like Punch/Counterpunch or Animated Shockwave; have a Makeshift robot mode, an Autobot robot mode (Maybe Hound since that's who he was in Exiles? If not just some generic/new Autobot would work) and an Autobot vehicle mode. That'd be a nice way to feature his Shifter abilities while still having the toy be workable.

    EDIT: Actually what would be cool is if Hasbro marketed him as Hound/Autobot and you only found out it was Makeshift when you opened the instructions. They'd probably never do it but still. :)

    You could use the single pack/slight repaint of Wheel Jack from the Cyberverse line vs the Star Hammer mold.
