    Wheeljack is not supposed to be some Albert Einstein, weak-ass nerdbot. Of course, this is Bay's universe.

    He wasn't on screen long enough for me to really care what he looked like.

    More than happy with him. His look was different, but totally in-line with the character.

    Who's to say what Wheeljack looks like? This is a different continuity. It's new, yet it makes sense.

    Well, he had three close-ups, so I dunno how long you need.

    I was satisfied with Movieverse Wheeljack.

    I understand what they were going for but I didn't like the look. Just seemed too old and Wheeljack in other continuities never struck me as being that old.

    If it wasn't his face, people would've just whined about something else.

    Because what the Autobots needed was another "hardore" badass.

    Also, not really his face, but how the fabric of his car mode made a sort of coat around his waist was cool. We need more design elements like that in TFs instead of everything just being metal. Topspin did something similar, with his "mullet'' being the netting from his Nascar mode.

    I like it a lot. :)  He has a friendly kind face that stands out among the otherwise battle worn and edgy look of the other Autobots.

    I was pretty saddend about how he was killed off. :(

    Didn't like his look, passing on the toy. Much prefer his g1 persona and look.

    His design was great (the clothtop forming a labcoat was a great detail), but that was not Wheeljack at all. And how could someone have that many weapons and still get executed?

    Yeah, I absolutely loved how his seatbelts wrapped around his body and kept his spear and any other weapons on his back..well, on his back.

    I loved DOTM Wheeljack. Such a nice change of pace from badass characters.

    Too bad Topspin's hair wasn't in line with the car mode's netting. Real Nascar netting is black and the Wreckers stayed true to that. But it's all of a sudden blue when he hits robot mode.

    I liked him as Que, but this is the true movie Wheeljack.

    I liked his alt mode, but not his face. The whole idea of modeling a Transformer after a person is ridiculous. They should have given him a more G1 style head design, like the one below, and I think that fans would have been more accepting of him.

    I also do not agree with calling him "que" just like Bay decided to call Mirage "Dino". Regardless of what fans may say otherwise, Hasbro officials stated that the characters were intended to be Wheeljack and Mirage; it's just that simple.

    As for him asking for mercy from Soundwave, It didn't really seem cowardly of him, in that he was pleading to Soundwave's judgement of their actions, and the reasoning behind it.
