    Updates on WJ kit from Master Collectors site.

    Don't know if this is news but I just got this in the Mail from mastercollectors. They posted a ton of new pics at their site for their upcoming WheelJack mod! Also pricing and such (44.98USD). Here's an image from their site.

    More images on their site. Some brief info seems that:

    yeah, it's awful. re-casting hasbro's downshift head, recasting wheeljack's wings and launcher, not even making the windshield clear, and still they think this with 45 dollars, when not even 10 dollars worth of effort was put into it.

    Which is funny,considering it's be done numerous times and it has yet to look like a pile of shit as you put it.

    The kit is interesting,but not my cup of tea.

    I think I'd rather wait until 2084 for a new Wheeljack figure than get this.

    The chest just looks so big and ugly, which is a problem I had with Sunstreaker. The chest ends up looking so big and ugly because it also has to become the entire car roof. Besides I think it's pretty much a given Wheeljack will be in the next Classics line

    cool idea but way to much to pay just to have an official company like has/tak bring out an official wheeljack in some future wave. even if its a club exclusive i would kick myself for not waiting for the real thing but thats just me.

    I don't think it's terrible. I think it's just a kit that requires more work than most people (myself included) are willing to put in for $45.

    hmmm...pay $45 and then another load of money on top of that to have someone paint it for you or put in the effort to paint it yourself (and have it look like crap if you can't paint)? Very bad idea. I don't think it will sell too well. Of course you have the people who can customize who may consider this kit but that's a very very small market.
