Wheeljock is a mysterious character in Transformers universe,
Not a willing soldier in the Cybertronian war, he enstranged himself from his brother, Wheeljack when the latter decided to join Optimus Prime aboard the Ark leaving Cybertron (and crash landed on earth millions of years ago).
Preferring his life as a civilian, his current location is unknown.
About this MOC
The last component to be built was the rear wings. Initially I ran out of parts to get this done. I resorted to redesigning this MOC swapping parts about... and improved the vehicle front along the way.
Due to limited parts option, the rear tyres are connected by blue rigid technic pins. So you can't roll the vehicle around back and forth smoothly.
I regretted not able to make use of the 4 yellow fenders from this set in this MOC. They don't seem to fit anywhere at all.
One of the major hurdles in building him was how to elegantly handle the big tyres in the robot mode. I dislike tyres sticking out of the robot mode body (unless they're located at the back or shoulders).
He's not entirely blockish like a typical G1 Transformer, as shown in the walking poses above.
There are leftover parts to make a gun for this guy to hold.
