    The artwork is pretty cool... too bad it doesn't look more like that. Overall, I think it's a bit too retro-looking for my tastes... like the Jetson's car.

    Looks good.
    No interest in the character though.

    I'll pick this up if I run out of things to buy.

    Edit: What Jehsee said also.

    If it's Masterpiece sized, then I'll buy it. It looks so 80's in design!

    EDIT: Looks like they might be doing more MP related designs. Look behind Wheelie in the artwork...

    I would easily nab something based on the artwork, but not that other image. Just not for me.

    Wheelie SHOULD be retro looking.

    Cool... you can buy my copy. :D 

    He should be if he's "Geewun"... I guess I'd only be interested in an updated "Classics" rendition.

    Retro futuristic, that is. Looking forward to seeing more of this figure. I've dug Wheelie since his appearances in the IDW comics, but haven't found a toy of him I like.

    Oh yes please! I was just thinking yesterday I need a nice Wheelie and with how Xtrans Huffer n Pipes are looking this should be nice as well.

    The artwork is based on the old Wheelie design pictured below (not my pic). Pretty sure Jizai designed that one, but I could be wrong.

    The new render seems to be an entirely different design with their new MP minibot focus. I think it looks awesome :)

    I can confirm that this fellow is MP scaled, and the renders shown aren't final, design has actually been refined a bit already.

    I removed the artwork, as X-Transbots recycled it from a different project and doesn't reflect this design.

    Looks better than the other Wheelie. Given how good Krank is turning out I'd be much more likely to go with these guys for a Wheelie. Now we'll just have to see what the price ends up being.

    Darn, I thought X-Transbots might do more Masterpiece figures :( .

    Oh well, at least Wheelie is MP scaled :D .

    No interest in MP-sized Wheelie.

    Same designer as the Krank? The guy known as 539?

    Is this Ollie as mentioned on the Krank tech spec?
