Is it Me or ?

Recommended Posts

Is it me or does Energon Downshift look a lot like Gen1 WheelJack? And why did they not name him WheelJack I mean look at him for Pete's sake, he is the spitting image. Whats wrong with Hasbro; are they Coo Coo for CoCoa Puffs?

Yeah, in the Armada series they used a decepticon character named Wheeljack, and since Energon is a continuation storyline of Armada, different character, different name.

Not that that should really matter, since most of the other 'bots carried over from Armada got new bodies..

 

And we know Demolishor and Cyclonus are both getting -entirely- new bodies (and in Cyclonus's case, a new name - Snow Cat)..

 

Eh..

 

Either way, Downshift looks good, and he will be part of my collection. :thumb

I get the whole name change and upgrade thing... in the MTMTE books, they go over the Smokescreen to Hoist upgrade. My only... complaint... I guess is the colors. If they're gonna make him look like G1 Wheeljack, that's all fine and dandy... but the proto pics I've been seeing with the cream colored body and green and orange pin-striping are atrociuous... Please gods will you make Hasbro change that!!

The proto was red and pink.

 

I'd say you were looking at test-shots, but the only finished pics I've seen are white with Wheeljack's coloring.

 

Only thing I don't like are those red headlights. I might have to fix those when I get mine.
