Couldn't agree more
To be clear I was talking solely about the one shots, not the entire cyberverse line. In fact, I meant the one shots from all lines. I am willing to change that to "the ones released so far", but I stand by what I said. They don't fit adult standards of what we want. So it's not fair to compare them to new lines.
He's a great looking figure imo, miles better than either the fat little classics figure and the scrawny pale potp figure. This thing is a mini masterpiece. I'd rather go by the actual pictures of it from comic con rather than rely on the new awful pictures that always make the figures look terrible. It boggles my mind that they don't have people pose figures to make them look the best they possibly can---for MARKETING pictures where you would think they would want them to look their absolute best.
As much as I wish that were the case, I don't think it is. The missile appears to be molded to the launcher without even the slightest space or line to indicate its a separate piece. Also if it were a feature it would've been shown on the back of the box. The hole with a slit is curious as it appears too large to accommodate blast effect parts. The cynical part of me says its just there as a cost-cutting measure to save on plastic, hopefully that's wrong though.
Well except it might have had a comic head just like impactor, and Impactor's bonus head was far superior to his standard head. In this case I think this super G1 head has grown on me some.
You’re right, he’d probably have gotten a 2nd head if he had won the vote, but I’m 99% certain this is the wheeljack we would have gotten in wave 4 at retail if he had won the vote
My guess is it's part of some gimmic we haven't seen/noticed yet.
Are we talking about two different heads for Wheeljack here? I didn't realise he had another one.
IDW's head was very slick
Exhaust: *laughing at how tiny Wheeljack's weapon is*
You mean... that Cybertronian mode Wheeljack? Makes me wonder how that could be a proper toy.
van wheeljack was never going to be a thing, earthrise wheeljack was scheduled to come out 1 wave after the fan vote winners (siege was supposed to end at wave 4), the toy we are getting is exactly what we would have gotten in siege
Again I point to impactor
notice, i was specifically talking about the sunbow cybertronian wheeljack that turns into a van. the one everyone thought was going to be a thing because he showed up at the beginning of the cartoon. i already said that you're right that hed have probably gotten a 2nd head if he had won, but its just as likely itd be cyberverse or prime inspired and not have his faceplate as it would be for him to have an idw based head
@KRPH referred to a cybertronian mode wheeljack, or in otherwords the van from the first sunbow episode, which was never going to be a thing
I retract my objection
That Wheeljack is looking kinda bleh.
I can't tell what it is, but there's something "off" about Wheeljack . Like maybe it looks "cheap" compared to Siege figures, maybe proportions, IDK.
I think a Siege Wheeljack would have been different in one way:
The roof-chest would have just been completely unpainted clear plastic.
thats possible, like sideswipes roof canopy. i was thinking more the mold itself rather than the paint
John Warden said if Wheeljack/Spinister had won the fan vote that Wheeljack would have been the box van like in the first episode of G1
Dunno what you guys are smoking, this new Wheeljack looks great imo.
