This has been a toy I have been waiting months and months for. The first time I heard about it was in the beginning of the year and ever since then I had to watch other videos and pictures of people who already had it. I assumed it would eventually release in my town, but time passed by and it never did. I had hoped that when it finally did release I would be able to buy it on sale, and buy a couple more for my friends as well. But all this waiting as of this date kept me anxious till the point I couldn’t wait any longer and I had to buy Wheeljack online.
It wasn’t so bad because the quality on this toy just blew my mind and expectations. Okay... I might not be a hard-core Transformers collector, but I do consider this high quality from Hasbro. Besides I try not to be ‘hard-core’ in collecting in general because it tends to leave you jaded and never satisfied. From this position I am able to judge an item on my most basic judgments of whether I like it or not. And this toy I really love.
To start off with, what attracted me initially was the color scheme used; white, red and green. For some reason it reminds me of a pizza box at a pizzeria. Anything that relates to pizza is a winner in my book. I then also liked the sports car vehicle mode the toy can transform into, and the way he looks when you transform him into a robot. The transformation process is also easy, and you are able to transform him into 3 different types of modes; sports car, flight mode, and robot.
I have absolutely no complaints about this toy, and would consider this my favourite Transformers toy of the year. Once you learn to build him he is very fun to play with. I also like that he doesn’t have any issues with limbs popping off like I did with my Roadbuster figure. I highly recommend this figure, and as soon as I see him in a store I plan to buy some more toys of him.
