Wheeljack Numbers

The numbers on Wheeljack vary with various incarnations.
For example G1 used "539" and Combiner Wars used "705".

Does anyone know why?

Is there significance and/or relevance to the number selected for a figure?

Re: Wheeljack Numbers

The original G1 and Diaclone race cars were based off real world racing liveries and the numbers relate to their sometimes championship winning cars. It's most likely a legal thing when you start combining the numbers that have significance with liveries that are close to the originals. #539 Alitalia Lancia, #38 Electramotive Datsun, #26 Gitanes Ligier. Hasbro Legal OK'd the #26 on the recent Earthrise Mirage, most likely due to no reference to Citanes/Gitanes.
