    Well, he's done now, I painted the shoulder cannon and did some touch up work. If you are interested, he's up on ebay now, give him a good home

    Please post ebay auction links in the ebay forum on TFW2005.com. Thanks! ~Radicon Staff

    looking pretty good so far. i might just have to do this repaint but hopefully they make a red alert so the paint won't be as difficult to add on

    I didn't think that this mold would work for wheeljack but seeing this makes me think again, good job can't wait to see it finished

    Looks great!! :thumbs2:  I love the head you put on that mold, The paint is coming along great!! Missile launcher is aces, too! I agree with you that a set of wings would make him a very cool updated WheelJack! :thumb :thumb

    I was debating whether to paint on details or use repro labels and after seeing this that the repros are definately a better idea (the fine paint work is being a real pain and either bleeding or not taking.

    Yeah, painting details is a pain in the ass, I was just going to leave it white before I found those decals. I am working on the wings for him now using the upper wings from a classics Ramjet. Hope to have finished pics up tomorrow.

    I got to say, D-Unit. You did a helluva great job making a Universe/Classics 2.0 Wheeljack from the paintjob to the weaponry. So kudos to you, man.

    Looks really good. It's a little surprising how well the stickers fit the mold, though a really nice surprise. If Hasbro doesn't do this, or some sort of Wheeljack figure, I might just do this for myself. Keep up the good work.

    Hmm... For some reason, this guy looks like he belongs in the IDW universe.

    I'd prefer a modified version of the energon downshift as 2.0 Wheeljack, for it has more of a gen 1 vibe. Plus, I don't want too many characters with the same alt mode. Although, I am just as surprised as anybody how well both modes can be made to resemble wheeljack. If you could do some more touch-ups here and there, and finish his shoulder weapon, you'll have yourself a winner.

    my only complaint is that you didn't take the toy apart before you painted it, and now you have white all over the tires and yellow showing up in the wheel wells and in many other places on the toy. It looks like you did a really good job modifying the head, and you did a good job with the stickers too.

    I acutally did take it apart, I just didn't tape up the wheels good enough. As I said, it's not finished yet. Also, if anyone is planning on doing this, when you do the head, yu have to cut the eyes out of the back of the Downshift head and glue them to the front part, otherwise he has two black holes for eyes. I am going to finish the painting and wings today, and hope to get the pics up. Thanks for the kind words everyone

    Dammit, why did you have to post this :drool: . I have no time these days other than to surf this site and admire all the cool stuff coming out. I have about 3 WIPs and after seeing this it'll be 4 WIPs. The custom looks great and I really like this Lamborgini mold much better than Energon. While it doesn't look like the old Lancia Stratos, it does look a little like the new 2011 model Lancia.

    I also love the creative use of Starscream's null ray for Wheeljack's shoulder cannon.
