Bear Biologist Makes Hyperbolic Claim about Bear Mauling and Lightning Strikes

Chuck's Reviews Transformers Cyberverse Scout Class Wheeljack

Joining us for the second time in the Cyberverse line is Wheeljack now in the Scout Class. The figure is actually kinda cool looking although very under detailed compared to the package pics. Transformation is simple and like other Scout Class figures results in some bot/vehicle hybrid. I dig the figure and think it would look great on any desk or small space you can think of.
