Original Mold: Transformers: Dark of the Moon Deluxe Que

This Wheeljack was originally intended as part of the canceled Movie Trilogy series.  The Deluxe Optimus Prime with Trailer was released but the four deluxes including Wheeljack was canceled.  The only mold change is the new head sculpt.  It isn’t quite G1, but looks like a decent Movie style Wheeljack head.  I’m a bit disappointed with the paint job.  His stripes needed to be continued on the top and back of the car, as well as the sides.  He just looks kind of plain.  The green makes him look much better in robot mode, but he could have used a little red here.  It’s also disappointing that he did not include any accessories.  His original MechTech weapons and spear were crap, but they could have included a gun at least.

Overall: It’s pretty cool, but I’d say this one is for mold completist and Wheeljack fans only.

Thanks for reading!

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
