    Sadly I want this guy as much as I wanted the Soundwave repaint, which is not at all. I would've much preferred the onscreen versions but this is for the best as now I won't be tempted to spend more money I don't have.:lol

    Where does one go about getting these Japanese toys?? I can't find any official Takara Tomy online shop and eBay ones are so overpriced. The only time I've seen one was DOTM Air Raid in Taiwan but it was mixed in with Hasbro figures. Even a Japanese toy store I went to didn't have any.

    Very nice! Glad to see this finally getting a release! Seeing how this is an Aeon store (Japanese retailer mall) exclusive, I'm not quite convinced this is the mysterious Deluxe "Autobot A" teased in the Advanced movie line. At any rate, I plan to have my wife preorder this for me and just send to my dad-in-law who lives in Japan. :D 

    Ha, Jackie's head does look like the G1 Matrix! :lol  Agreed this guy would look great next to Evasion Mode Optimus, Target-exclusive G1 Jazz, Cannon Force Ironhide, and Advanced Movie Ratchet (or the white and red Voyager redeco).

    I wish it was Que. That G1-ny Wheeljack head doesn't go at all with that body.

    Check the sponsors (ads) at the top of the forum. They usually import.

    This Wheeljack is a limited store exclusive, while Autobot A is a mass release, so that figure isn't this.

    That was Hasbro Asia, he's referring to Hasbro USA.

    Apparently this G1 Wheeljack deco figure isn't available online at Jusco/Aeon Japan Web sites. Instead, you have to preorder this figure in person at one of the actual brick-and-mortar stores in Japan, and then pick it up from the same store upon release because Jusco/Aeon does NOT offer delivery via mail post like Takubin, etc. (someone correct me if I'm wrong). This is according to my wife who's fluent in Japanese. That makes things much more complicated and this Wheeljack much more elusive for international fans. Gonna have the wife ask her dad to place a preorder in person now.

    Even more, this leads me to believe that the mystery Deluxe "Autobot A" figure in the Advanced movie line is NOT this G1 Wheeljack redeco of the Que mold.
