    If I remember correctly Wheeljack flew in Autobot Run too. He had air coming out of where his hands normally are. Might be mistaken.

    Dr Wu's light-up 'ears' seem to be sold out everywhere, but the engineer kit is still available at Robot Kingdom, for anybody looking:

    [Dr Wu] DW-P22 Engineer.

    Includes a couple of tools which are kinda obsolete if you have MP-30, but comes with that little mine from part 2 of the pilot, as well as the Shockblast Cannon and some grenade thingymajig

    Now that you mention it, didn’t ‘The Core’ have them using jets in their hands to sneak controlwhatsits on the Constructicons?

    Probably from some other 3P but those aren’t Dr.Wu unless it’s actually stated. Still, looks like someone’s filling a need.

    They were posted a few pages back. That seller appears to be a scam.

    Excited to get this in. Is there any QC problems on this figure I need to be careful with or is he pretty solid? I can't wait to pose him next to Ratchet and my Dinobots. I've been looking at pics of 17+ the face sculpt looks so good, cannot wait for my package from TCP. I ordered 20+ from AJ how long does it typically take to ship?

    QC seems on par with the original MP-20. The occasional paint smudges or spatter, since this release has even more paint than the original there might be more chance of issues. My first copy was pretty much flawless.
    Be careful when pegging in the 'belly' area, make sure that the part containing the exhaust pipes is lined up properly so that it slots into the hole in his chest where his head sits in vehicle mode.

    He's such an awesome MP. Absolutely love this release.

    I've been really impressed with the + releases so far. The more I look at Inferno and Grapple the more I think I will collect season 2 as well. I hope the next + is 13. The decepticons are out numbered!

    I still haven't picked up Inferno, but I had Artfire and have Grapple, and I can confirm that they are fantastic and well worth dipping into S2 for! They are so damn clean, fun to pose, with some mind-blowing transformation compacting going on.

    Right there with you on MP-13+ too, and his cassettes!

    With the cassettebots I hope it's a box set similar to what they did last year. I also hope Ratbat is included.

    As others have said, don't bother. I ordered over a week ago, sent three separate messages on email and his Facebook. No reply.

    Thanks all.

    I received my Wheeljack yesterday, quite nice, very happy with it. I watched Emgo's video of the original MP20 for transformation, because they're the same mold. I recommend watching his video, and also, he shows how to do the feet properly. There's a piece you flip down and around and tab in a bit.

    Question, after ordering how long does it take usually for AJ to process and ship out? I'm in the USA FYI

    They're very good. Just like American Amazon. Whatever day you order it, it should be processed no later than the following day

    Got an idea.
    Here's an easy money maker for Takara: Just release bonus weapons packs. They can now make everything that appeared in the TF cartoons and Universe WITHOUT overshooting the price point budget on the individual figures. Have laser bolt effects, guns, back packs, etc. Easy money.

    That seems very much unlike them. Did you get a confirmation email when you ordered it?
