    I was going to call a disappointingly simplistic transformation until you got to the arms and the legs. Very cool!

    Well, I finally got my Wheeljack. ^_^

    'Jackie & Soundwave are awesome, but I'm surprised it's RiD Cliffjumper that's the most challenging to transform (at least back into Vehicle mode). That's FE 'Bee running w/ Cliff' & preparing to take a shot.

    It'll be a while before they make it into my comic, though... Need a specific figure (I've got a few jokes planned for my usually serious-ish comic that require him)... & a few more, tbh (special circumstances of how they get into the coimc will play out better w/ more.).

    I'll probably use the above pic, much more heavily 'shopped (needs a better backgroud, for one) in a monitor several updates from now. May or may not wait until I get more figures...

    Chupa-thingy. XD

    Props to you for the reference!

    This is actually one of the few Prime toys I'm looking forward to. Looks great!

    The sheaths on his back are a pretty awesome touch. I was sorta freaking out when I saw those!

    I just picked up Prime Wheeljack...
    This is the best transformer I have ever owned, period. I say this without hesitation. The transformation is very interesting. he is solid in both modes, there are numerous snaps for every part so that whether in car or bot mode, nothing is loose, the limbs are tight, he's fully posable, the car breaks along the seem lines, there are LOTS of precise paint apps. this is the best wheel jack that could possibly be made.

    I send my heart felt Thanks to the genius designers at Takara / Hasbro, it was worth the wait.

    he's timeless, he'll fit in with classics, animated and prime

    Nice review of a great figure.

    Just as a helpful hint though the transformation works better if you do the arms first from vehicle mode and last from robot mode.

    Nice review TJ. I see you hoard Wheeljacks in addition to Cliffjumpers. :)  Hehe.

    I agree that the lack of arm swivel sucks and the legs do rotate at the ball decently enough but a thigh swivel would have been better. I think he's more than an 8.5 personally though.
