    I think I’ll be happy with that in an EX deco. It’s just too plain as shown— like most toon homages, to my eye at least.

    That is not the most flattering angle is it? Gonna wait for more pics but for now it looks just alright- shoulders seem a bit small and too far from the chest imo

    I'm really happy with a lot of Newage carbots, Bumblebee and Cliffjumper are amazing, I love Inferno, Ironhide and Beachcomber, but unless this is just a really unflattering picture, Wheeljack looks like trash.

    Looking at my NA Ultra Magnus and Ratchet, praying that this company has finally learned how to get white paint to stick on translucent plastic.

    Yeah that torso is a square block. Everything else looks fine.

    Man I must be on some bad granola because he looks fine to me.

    People saying the chest is too blocky/big, but that's what Sunbow Wheeljack looks like. Only thing not accurate is the shape of the windscreen but that's kind of expected unless they wanted to do faux parts. (which at this scale probably would've looked worse)

    Really not seeing what's bad about this guy. I'm excited to see more pics. Also his right hand is backwards. :lol

    I’m an EX collector, and that looks positively heroic compared to chonky, squat little toy Wheeljack. I can work with that, easily, but I can see where toon fans might find it lacking.

    Me too. He doesn't exactly match the cartoon model but all of NA's cars have that slightly chibified look to them. He'll fit right in with the rest of them.

    Not a fan of the panels under the hands either, but other than that it looks pretty good. I’m gonna wait for MS to get a toon version, but am pretty excited to see the EX and others.

    Yeah I think he looks pretty good. Call me crazy but I think the 'ears' are actually removable, so I think they're gonna do the swap out pieces. Very nice!

    I thought his torso looked a little weird too but I guess that’s how he was in the show.

    I feel like that's the price to pay when it comes to Legends scale. Newage's carbots are pretty small, and if even MP Wheeljack had the oversized plank torso, I can't see how Newage wouldn't have some corners they couldn't tuck away.

    Though this is a very odd first image to reveal. It obscures the head slightly, doesn't really give a good thee-dimensional look of the figure, and accentuates the chest form a downward view. Not sure why they didn't just, I dunno, take a normal picture of him?
