    In the new trailer, we got a glimpse of wheeljack in the background next to a big window in the hanger with the rest of the autobots. I want to know do you like his cgi Einstein model or do you hate it?


    I personally like his model and cant wait to see him in action and what his toy is going to look like!

    It's hard to see right now, since thats the only movie image we have of him. I'm hoping to get some toy images released soon, or at least a CGI render used by animators.

    I really like they've decided to add Wheeljack as the inventor of the autobots, love the Mercedes too. Just a shame his head design completely ruins it. Oh well, hope he's a great character

    I like it. Imo it looks like a creative deviation from the heads we usually see autobots with.

    I like his design, but his head design, it... seems out of place on his body, but I like it as well.

    The Einstein face looks alright - I would have preferred Wheeljack's trademark ears over the weird looking fiber optic hairs though.

    I really don't get the need for an autobot to grow "hair" or what appears to be a moustache on his face. or spectacles. weird

    I think it's really stupid, the reason for changing how the robots used originally was because they didn't look alien enough, now when it comes to wheeljack they make him look like Einstein because he was smart rather than homaging the alien looking Wheeljack head.

    I think they went too human with Wheeljack's head design, to the point where he looks out of place next to Bee and Prime.... time will tell.

    Now the problem I have is that I like the head, I think it's a funky fun design and it's cool. I also like the body, he looks nice and chunky with a tool-belt and all that, and the Merc is a beautiful alt-mode, and he's blue, which is nice.

    But seeing the two together, it looks a bit odd, they don't mesh particularly well imo. Granted, we've only seen the one background shot, and it's not uber-detailed, but it's a little off putting.

    But as long as his fibre optic hair flashes neon blue when he talks, all will be good :D

    I don't like the fact they seemed to of mixed elements of Drift in with the design. Sword were just too cool to leave out..

    They should've made his alt mode a Delorean... A flying one off course...

    The design is great, the head is shit. There was no need to go this route, when G1 Wheeljack's head was alien to begin with and would have lend itself very well to the movie aesthetic, as his appearances in the prequel comics show.

    I like the car and robot body but that old man head creeps me out. I agree with Ra88, an updated version of his G1 noggin would've been fantastic.
