Wheeljack (G1, 1984)

"Never do what your enemy expects you to do."

Wheeljack is the mad scientist of the Autobots. Always inventing new weapons and gadgets. Most adept at driving while in car mode. Likes to show off his stunts. Flying range of 800 miles using solid-fuel rockets in arms. Shoots magnetic inducer, shrapnel-needle and gyro-inhibitor shells from his shoulder cannons. He is his own worst enemy. Often injured while experimenting with new weapons.

Next to the Porsche 935 Turbo, Wheeljacks Lancia Stratos Group 5 vehicle mode is my favourite amongst the original Autobot cars.
