Wheeljack is the man. He's got his tool and a weapon just in case. It is a great mold and a great character.

This wheeljack figure looks a lot like the G1 one, I like that. The transformation is fun and he is an overall great figure

Wheeljack is one of two new figures to surface in wave eight of the Transformers Generations line. The full wave eight line-up consists of Wheeljack, Warpath (the other new figure in this wave), Thundercracker, Kup, and Scourge. Retail price on this figure is roughly $12.00 (USD), depending on where you purchase him.

The ankles of this figure are hinged and allow for about 80° of front-to-back movement. In addition to the ankles the back half of the foot, or the heal, uses a ball-joint that allows you to move the back of the foot up-and-down about 45° as well as rotate it from side-to-side roughly 90°. The knees are articulated with a single-hinge and swivel-point that allows you to bend the leg a little over 90° as well as rotate the lower-leg a full 360°. The hips use a simple ball-joint that provide about 180° of front-to-back movement as well as 90° of lateral motion.

The wrists of this figure use a simple swivel-point that will allow you to rotate the hands a full 360°. The elbows are double-hinged to provide a full 180° of motion; from fully extended to being able to touch his own shoulder. Just above the elbow you'll find a swivel point that provides a full 360° of rotation for the lower portion of the arms. The shoulder primarily uses a ball-joint for its articulation, but also has a single-hinge just above the ball-joint. The ball-joint in the shoulders provides 180° of front-to-back movement as well as about 80° of lateral motion. The hinge portion of the shoulder is primarily used for the transformation, but it does allow you to add about 10° of lateral motion to the arms, making up for the bit of lateral motion that the ball-joint is missing for a full 90° of movement. The coolest part about this though is that you can use the ball-joint and the hinge in conjunction with each other to achieve a slight “shrugging” effect with the shoulders.

The head is attached with a ball-joint at the base of the head. This allows you to tilt the head from side-to-side as well as up-and-down about 30°. The ball-joint also allows the head to rotate 360° around.

If ever there was a figure that was in need of a Classics-style it's Wheeljack. The modern interpretation of this figure bears a striking resemblance to the original in both robot and vehicle modes. Given that this is a recolor and slight re-mold of the Blurr figure, it's kind of amazing how much of a difference that a new head, spoiler, and a few other changes can make in a figure.

The only thing that I don't really care for about this figure is that the “wings” are a bit oversized and impede a bit of the arm movement. Aesthetically they work for the figure, and they only block a slight bit of the backwards movement, but if you're the type of person that likes to pose your figures you might want to take note of this.

Overall this is a very nice figure, and probably one of the most anticipated figures to come out in a long time. With the upcoming release of the Dark of the Moon line, many retailers have slowed down on restocking their Transformers selections, this has caused the price on the secondary market to be a bit on the high side. But if you can find him at a reasonable price I would highly recommend this figure to just about any collector from the so-called high-end to the casual collectors.

The resident Autobot mechanic uses the tracks mold in what is arguably a better use for it. His two wrenches can also be clipped onto him as blasters.

Got this guy in trade for another TF`s weapon! Awesome figure and rendition of this character :)

A redeco of RTS Tracks, this Wheeljack feels like a must-have for any collection. He's a little shorter and stockier than the original character's design, but otherwise looks perfect. His c-clip rockets also work as wrenches or spanners or something. It's Wheeljack, so who knows what they would actually do.

Really short, and his chest pieve hinders a bunch of things, but he works. Hit heels are terrible though, being on balljoints and all.

A great figure was some awesome details and paint apps! The figure is kinda short and stocky though and I kind wish he extend his legs a bit more, like his mold-mate, Tracks.

Not a bad toy but more difficult and complicated to transform than the original. Would have been nice if they kept it simpler.

Love this mold and both Wheeljack and Tracks look G1 reebooted. Great job on both car and bot mode and I love how the weapons store inside the car.

Love what they did with his head sculpt, and the wrenches are an interesting weapon. Not really a fan of the transformation process, thanks to the sliders but otherwise not too bad!

Love this figure, perfect fit for and G1 inspired generations display. Sweet alt mode, and articulate robot mode. I was always a super huge fan of the wheeljack, and I really enjoy the detail in the head.

This version of Wheeljack is a very good addition to your colelction. Even if you are a G1 purist.
His robot mode is such an improvement over the G1 original one.

A top-notch Wheeljack figure that makes for a great G1 homage. In addition to looking fantastic in spite of being a slight remold (it is amazing the difference a few little details make), he has a good degree of articulation and posability that is only slightly hampered by the oversized doors. For either casual play, or collection purposes, this is a solid buy so you should definitely not pass him up if you see him at retail price or, even better, below it.

A repainted retool of RTS Turbo Tracks, this Wheeljack transforms into a Corvette, but sports a very G1-esque paint job, including the trademark Lancia ralley stripes. His alt mode is somewhat more modified then the Tracks figure, sporting additional body kit and spoiler pieces. The resulting robot mode is very G1. He sports clip-on tools and a single clip rocket, giving the character some further G1 appeal. Transformation is simple and either mode is very satisfying to behold. Yet another must-have, Wheeljack is the perfect addition to any Autobot display...

This toy portrays Wheeljack very well, although I do find him a little too short and stocky. The tools are a nice touch, and the head sculpt is spot-on. I'm not a hure fan of his shoulder joints though.

Another awesome G1 type mold. very close looking to the G1 Character. I really like these molds and think they make awesome displays. they are fully articulate. And Make me wish they were around in the 80's when I was kid :(

Best design ever! Seriously, they made two completely different robots out of the same mold with next to no changes other than one for height and some cosmetic differences. Truly a great homage to the original wheeljack and his alt mode just looks spectacular.

This figure is awesome and looks great. I would highly recommend this figure to anyone collecting this line.

I like the Generations collection, the transformations are fun and the figures were thoughtfully designed

Arguably the best figure in the 2010 Generations line (along with Tracks from Reveal the Shield), Wheeljack gets a lot of things right. The vehicle mode is a perfect update to the G1 figure with all the right colours in all the right places. The transformation is fun and strikes a good balance between intricacy and difficulty. In robot mode, Wheeljack looks just as great. Some would complain that he's short in stature (the legs don't extend as far as on the Tracks version), but I've never had a problem with that. All in all, this is a fantastic figure, and a must have in a Classics collection!

This mold is amazing it was about time for wheeljack to get his neo classic upgrade this mold is another must have.
