    Since it's hard to search these forums for images, can people please post the concept art(s) and images of Wheeljacque?

    Wheeljacque is what they call him in Quebec.

    The change of the k to que is so that both names are accounted for but it is still pronounced Wheeljack.

    I caught that. I'm still going to pronounce it with a soft j and q sound.

    Now I'm picturing him as a cantankerous old habitant puttering around in his workshop.

    "Tabernaque! Maudite Decepticons, dees poms'll show dem!"


    But here, there's some wheeljacque concept art here (among a ton of others):

    Forgot about the Saab.

    If that he been Wheeljack, then that more dwarvish design would have worked very well.

    Ooooh, nice Wheeljacks, Ra88. I quite like that one who has the spindly appendages sticking out of his back.

    I believe these are all concepts.

    I would've liked the E63 AMG more than the E550, since the E63 is essentially the C-class DTM Touring Car engine stuffed into a civilian chassis.

    On Ben Procter's concepts (close to original) he even quite handsome :)  And he is very similar to Al. Einstein :)

    Yeah, they're all concepts I managed to find. I may be dubious on the movies, but I'm a damn hoarder for all the concept art. :lol

    Yeah that was a real missed opportunity there.

    It's just one of those things I file under 'far too good to actually happen'.

    Okay, I just checked up on it and apparently the Saab Jack was first prize in a design contest. But that's all I got.

    Does anyone know why it wasn't used, if it was a first prize?

    And is there a CGI render of that design?
