    I like this a lot. The reprolabels look very nice on this mold. The painting is pretty solid. Could probably stand a little refining and detail work in places, but overall, it's a very nice custom. Good job!

    I see what you mean. That wouldn't be a bad mold for Downshift.

    Wow! That turned out much better than I expected. I didn't see this mold as a great Wheeljack, but you've sold me on it! Looks great!

    OMG! this is absolutely superb! I mean, it's not like I haven't seen this before, but a near-complete universe wheeljack totaly makes an impression on me. Still, for the sake of my energon wheeljack, I am resisting the temptation to reproduce this guy, but I love you for making this cool custom. Nice "Action shot" at the end pic. I can only assume wheeljack has cooked up some weird gizmo that's about to backfire.

    I didn't think this mold would be a good fit for wheeljack but you definitely proved me wrong. He looks great!!!

    Nice, very nice. As I said earlier, the reprolabels make a world of difference. Nice job

    The only thing I don't like design=wise with this one is the up-curved "ears" on the head. I will definitely make one of these myself if we don't get one from Hasbro (which I don't expect we will)

    I would have preferred to have not had the ears so curved but if they weren't the head will have needed to be removed for transformation.

    Thanks for the comments everyone :rock

    I just made an important observation, you need to paint the upper legs black, to even out the look. You'd have to paint over the cool transparent blue parts, but the blue clashes with the color scheme anyway, and this would surely look more like a gen 1 update, as the original wheeljack had black upper legs.

    Don't know why I didn't notice that, but instead of painting the entire legs black I might paint the blue bits red, not quite sure yet but it will be done andfinished when I submit him for the gallery.
