    All right, you know the drill. This is the comparison of toy head sculpts for G1 Wheeljack. He had a few more heads than Sunstreaker. I left out Spy Changer Wheeljack, a straight redeco of RID Spy Changer Daytonus.

    Binaltech Wheeljack has a retooled neck that's slightly longer than the Alternators version, although I doubt that changes much in terms of aesthetics. Still, I added a pic just in case this is a deal-breaker for anyone.

    Have to say I like pretty much all of them. love the G1 version though. Kinda dig the snake-eyes style visor going on. Like the idea that it could raise like that for balttle and be lowered like he cartoon style at other times. I'd like to see that implemented in a toy sometime.

    As much as I love the new Generations one, I gotta go with Heroes of Cybertron. It looks the most screen-accurate.

    Binaltech Wheeljack's head had a very sleek design. That's my pick.

    Close call between Alternators and Generations, but I'll have to go with alts due to his "ears" being a bit smaller and better proportioned.

    Cybertron Downshift for me, though the Alternator version is also kinda neato. The way the head-topping fins cant inward on the Generations toy versus outward on ... all other versions turns me off the design. Poor guy's got a 'Zippy the Pinhead' vibe goin'.

    Yeah, I really dig the Cybertron Downshift head sculpt. This is also one rare place where i just don't think the classics head is that great and think the G1 head is just awful.

    I do like the Generations head, but the G1 head is just so damn hardcore and detailed, I have to go for that.

    I really like that the Alternators Wheeljack looks a little more aggressive without being excessive in doing so. I think it's a really great head design. The others don't really compare for me.

    For Wheeljack, I have to say that all others are and forever will be compared to that genius G1 head. One of my favorites of all time!
