Wheeljack Invents Himself a Masterpiece

Transformers Masterpiece Wheeljack has been known about for a while, with some prototype photos and blurry magazine scans appearing around online, but now there are high quality photos of the original Autobot inventor. These photos come from Amazon.jp and show off a lot of Wheeljack's awesome little details. Masterpiece Wheeljack looks amazing in both robot form and the super cool Lancia Stratos race car.

The original Wheeljack was one of my first, if not the first, Transformers toy I owned. I love this guy. He had one of the more unique heads in the original Transformers and his ears would light up when he talked. It was weird, but so awesome. The top of the car opened up like a cockpit. The original figure had dual shoulder cannons, whereas the Masterpiece only has one. However, there was no place to put the cannons when he was transformed, but the Masterpiece version fits on the roof. I really hope Hasbro is planning on bring Masterpiece Wheeljack over the the U.S. Hasbro hasn't announced anything about Sideswipe yet, so if they do plan on releasing Wheeljack here it wouldn't be for a long time.
